This should really be my Halloween post because it is scary. Or is it? I saw these vegan scallops at sidecar, Seattle's vegan grocery store, so I had to buy them. To make them more appetizing, they are in a can. The scallops are very firm chunks of seitan type stuff. I fried them up in a pan, because I love to do that. They had a mild flavor and weren't that bad. I'd eat them again - I kind of have to because there is 1/2 a can left.
On a related note, somebody on a TV show was going on about snowflakes that were as brilliantly blue as a scallop's eye. When I googled it, I found out that scallops have lots of bright blue eyes. Very cool, but creepy.
They can also swim, here is some footage. I don't know if they sped up the video or not, because these were some speedy scallops.
The second scary thing is the VitaSoy Chocolate Banana soymilk that Andy found yesterday. He was all excited because he loves the combo. When I opened it, a burst of fake banana smell came out, yuck. Thankfully it tasted like real bananas and it wasn't too overpowering. I prefer mixing up my own bananas with chocolate soymilk, but I wouldn't turn this down. Judging from Andy's reaction, it will be baaaaaack!
Oh how cute! My foster greyhound, Stitches, is playing with her chipmunk toy. Wait a second, there is something odd about that chipmunk... Could sweet innocent Stitches have chewed its legs off? Luckily there is a chipmunk ER in my house. The ER also handles toy gingerbread men, toy snakes, sandals and socks.
