My favorite sautee ever

It continues to be super hot here. I have to force Kobie to come in and cool down for a few hours during the day. I think it will only be around 65 on the day of the 3k walk, so that will be ok. Right now it's a bit overcast, so Kobie and I are going to run some errands before the sun really comes out. Doggie doesn't like to miss his car rides.


Neptune's Gift from the Veggie Works cookbook is my all time favorite sautee. It has lots of fresh veggies (In the pic, I forgot the kale) and dulse. The dulse adds a really nice salty sea taste to the dish and complements the tofu. I love dulse. The recipe says to put a huge chunk on top of the sautee and remove after cooking. I disobey and just crumble the dulse up all over the pan. Delicious dulse!

I have tried other sautees in this book, but didn't like them that much. I really need to branch out into other parts of the book, but every time I open it w/ that intention, Neptune's Gift calls to me and I put off trying new recipes. ~~~~~

Faline was hanging out in the shade of the blackberry vines and other picky growth in the cat cage. She is avoiding the camera on purpose. grumble.

This was taken a while ago when it was sunny out, but not hot enough for The Judge. He also demands to be under a blanket when he's inside. Don't have a blanket? No problem! He'll try to crawl into your pant leg or up your shirt. Not the least bit annoying.

Peepa is eating kobie's food right now. That cat will eat anything, even peanut butter and jelly.

That Neptune's Gift looks absolutely delicious. I used to eat a whole lot more seaweed than I do now... this makes me want to do it again!

Good luck on the run!

Ooh, that sautee looks good! I love seeing pics of your cats. Judge in his blanket is too cute! And Faline does look very determined to not look at you!

I too have a habit of having a favourite recipe in a cookbook and then not being able to look beyond it ;) That saute definitely looks worthy of being that recipe though!

Faline is beautiful and haha, Judge. He's just so full of personality, I can tell!

Faline and Judge do not look amused - bless them.
I bought some Dulse back in March and haven't figured out what to do with it yet!! That dish looks dee-light-ful!

mm that sautee does look great, i wouldn't think to add dulse to a stir fry!

I like the idea of adding dulse to a stir-fry. The fur-children look very content.
