Vegan Pizza Daaaaay!

Saturday, June 29th, 2013

To start we made calzones filled with mozzarella Daiya, broccoli, cauliflower, black olives, grape tomatoes (sadly not home-grown – not yet!), and roasted peppers (red and yellow). You can tell that we’re amateurs when it comes to calzones – both of ’em leaked a little. Oh well, practice makes perfect – so we’d better keep eating! (Like I need an excuse, pfffft.)

We had some dough left over, so we washed it down with a Kalamata olive crust pizza. Soooo stuffed.

Going to the drive-in!

2013-06-26 - Going to the Drive-In! - 0008

Rennie wanted to play fetch in the minivan. Silly rabbit!
——————————

Rennie got her second chance at accompanying us to the drive-in this week – her first one being some time around 2005-2006. That first time (which was possibly still during her puppyhood) she was awful, barking at the other patrons and claiming her territory (the Intrepid! we got rid of that thing last summer! memories.) and stuff. We had to throw a towel over her crate so she couldn’t see. Ditto Ralphie and Peedee. For a long time Kaylee was the only dog well-behaved enough to go with us, and then Mags joined the party last summer. (A development with which Kaylee was none too happy.)

With Kaylee gone, Rennie got another shot and she was AWESOME. She only barked once during intermission, and that was when Shane left to go to the bathroom, so she was already excitable and a little on edge. And the second time (we went twice in one week – World War Z & Now You See Me and This is the End & The Purge – and consequently, I’m still catching up on my sleep), she barked at the end of the feature. I think she’d fallen asleep in the back of the van and with the slamming of a car door, awoke in a strange-to-her place. So it wasn’t so much annoying as silly adorable.

Anyway, I think we found the perfect drive-in pair: they get on well, are mostly quiet, and don’t cause too much trouble. And Rennie’s presence helps to take some of the edge off Kaylee’s absence. This week was our first trip out since she passed – the first time in nearly a year, actually – and I was both anticipating and dreading it.

Now if only I could get through a yoga session without busting into tears.

Mags is not amused.

In other news, Mags got a package in the mail today! Girl’s gonna be super-bummed when she realizes that it’s an inflatable pool for water therapy. I predict a looooong summer for one little doggeh.

P.S. Today’s Vegan Pizza Day, and yes – I AM HOLDING A CONTEST ON TUMBLR. Check it.

2012-06-23 - Assorted Vegan Pizza - 0023

Saturday Night is Pizza Night! Pie #1 = cheddar Daiya cheese, Lightlife Smart Pepperoni, and black olives. Pie #2 is topped with vegan mac n’ cheese – specifically, the “Mac Daddy” recipe from Veganomicon. The dough didn’t quite rise enough, but the pizzas are still delicious.

Too bad Shane wasn’t home to try ’em – he had to take Jayne to the animal e.r. after she was bit by a woodchuck she managed to corner in the yard. She’s had all her shots, so she’ll be okay, but he tore a decent-sized hole in her chest.

Of course this all happened just as the pies were going in the oven. Jayne, your timing.
