I’d frozen some of Joni’s Shit on a Shingle last time I made it for breakfast. I pulled it out today and served it with some toast and marmite and hash browns before the match. I think it improved and was well worth making extra and freezing it.
Result – Everton 7 (seven!) – Sunderland 1 Man of the Match – All of them but Osman and Carsley were magnificent
Verdict – Extremely lucky shit on a shingle!
In the evening I was a bit unsure about what to make. I hadn’t been shopping and didn’t have much fresh food in. I’m so fixated with Veganomicon at the moment that it’s hardly surprising I turned straight to it. The Mac Daddy looked stodgy and unhealthy – the perfect choice after a cold wet day watching my team score 7 goals! I was very suspicious about crumbing the tofu into the pasta. I’ve made several versions of vegan macaroni cheese before and they’ve never included tofu. I even toyed with leaving it out but I trust Isa and Terry implicitly so I followed their instructions. I also used their idea of adding some chilli flakes into it too.
So how was it? Well, it certainly lived up to its stodgy and unhealthy billing. The tofu definitely made a big difference and even as I was eating through it I changed my mind about 4 times about whether it worked or not. On balance I think it did. My dairy eating husband enjoyed it. It would certainly be better with either spinach or peas though. I have leftovers which I’m going to stir some peas into it and see how it works.
that’s “S#@! on a shingle” gotta keep it kid friendly 🙂 glad you liked it…those pics of the mac daddy look amazing. maybe i’ll make that tonight. i haven’t cooked since thanksgiving, and if i eat anymore leftovers…
Promise I’ll be back to the burgers soon. Got a bit caught up in Veganomicon but I’ll be back!
Marmite is made by Unilever, one of the biggest vivisectors on the planet. Have you tried Vecon? It’s much tastier and being a little softer dissolves and spreads more easily.
I sometimes worry about companies I buy from but I’d have to spend so much time researching company ownership and profiles that I would never eat anything! But I do actually have unopened vecon in my cupboard – I must crack it open!
