Delayed Gratification....

The new edition of VegNews arrived yesterday. I was so excited, I just wanted to curl up in a chair - or better still in my bed - and read it cover to cover. Since my Father-in-Law is visiting us, however, I was forced to 'delay the gratification' and subsequently got to read about 3 pages once I'd crawled into bed around midnight.

However, on those three pages, I did see two Very Exciting (and multiple 'exciting') things:



Dr Cow, which - it transpires - has an especially endearing website.

I am excited about the Mimicreme simply because I do like to make the occasional batch of ice cream and have found the texture of soymilk-based ice creams to be a bit grainy at times. Coconut milk is an alternative to be sure, but sometimes you don't want that specific flavour. So Mimicreme looks like it could be just the ticket for this! It is available in sweetened and unsweetened versions, so will be great in soups, sauces...anywhere you'd normally use cream from cows' milk. Yeah!

And cheese. Well, do I need to say anything really? A nut-based vegan cheese which actually looks somewhat like its traditional dairy counterpart? Man, I am soooooooo thrilled. Like many folks out there, I did used to **love** cheese and I was even one of those people who would declare expansively 'Oooh, but I could NEVER give up my cheese!!!!'

'Blue' cheese:

But, oh yes, I could! And perhaps Dr Cow is now my reward???

Happy Mofo Tuesday and Stay Vegan, Friends!

I've tried the miminccream before and it's pretty good. I just discovered they sell it near me so I don't have to order it anymore. That cheese sounds cool.
