Things, Zines and Wingz

I have not blogged much this last week, I know! Our A/C has been broken, we have been hot, I have had back to back shingles, stomach problems, Matt's new work schedule...Things are working themselves out! I am working on a special summer giveaway for readers of my blog! Stay tuned! I ordered some special things and hope they will come in shortly!

I am crazy for vegan cook zines and craft zines. I ordered these two from Fight Boredom Zine Distro. Both are really cool! I love Bananarchy Now's layout and the images they used!
As for issue #3 of the Easy Vegan - I am still working on it. This issue will focus on being a vibrant vegan, from healthy recipes, DIY spa days, yoga and more...I am taking in ads if you want to see your ad in the next issue (free of charge) please contact me. If you want to contribute let me know your idea - you get a free copy if I print your article/recipe...

I wanted to create some buffalo type wing things for dinner last week. After scouting around the net I combined a bunch of different recipes and tips and came up with this.

Buffalo Style Tofu
1 block of extra firm sprouted tofu
1/2 cup all purpose flour
a pinch of garlic powder
a pinch of black pepper
1/2 cup of plain soy milk
vegetable oil for frying
1/2 cup of Earth Balance
1/3 cup of Frank's Hot Sauce (or your fave brand)

Slice the tofu into thick strips after splitting the block into 2. Assemble to bowls - one with flour, garlic powder and pepper mixture and one with soy milk. Dip each tofu strip into soy milk, then coat with flour mixture, place on plat till you have all them ready. Heat vegetable oil in a frying pan on medium high heat, enough to coat the bottom and a bit extra. Place all the tofu into your frying pan leaving enough room to turn each piece. Fry each side till they are light brown and crispy - about 3 minutes on each side. While frying heat up Earth Balance in a small pot, ad hot sauce and mix. Dump this on the tofu and turn down the heat and cook for a few more minutes. Serve with celery sticks, fries and ranch dressing! Yummy yummy yummy!

  1. Mar is so adorable. He's looking quite serious in that shot!

    I hope that your shingles go away soon. You've got to be miserable with them & no a/c. :(

    Looking forward to zine #3!

  2. I have your first 2 zines and look forward to your 3rd one as well. I agree with you, zines are so much fun.

    and Mar is a handsome boy! =^.^=

    what kind of adds are you looking for? Im interested. :)

  3. The a/c is fixed!

    I am looking for ads no bigger than business card sized promoting your website or etsy! Veg friendly please!
