improvisational cooking: "just so good I want to savor it" sez the wife

Do you know The Vegan Stoner?  Beautifully illustrated, fun, affordable, healthy, EASY cooking blog.  I have cooked items from the blog for some time but just got the cookbook and I am making my way through it!  The latest listing for pineapple pizza I am making tonight, for example.

Their idea is cheap, simple, healthy that anybody can do, and in a way that is SO easy.  The first recipe of theirs I tried cracked me up, the mac and peas, because it was just a couple of instructions including "a handful of this, a spoonful of that".  That is how I cook!

Last week we made their chili cheese fries (remember-no cheese, just a vegan cheesy sauce), pad thai on Friday, and because my cheese fries had no chili, I decided to try making their chili last night.  It basically says "fry a diced onion, dump some canned beans, corn and tomatoes in a pot with BBQ sauce and stir awhile".  And because I always creatively improvise cooking and this cookbook encourages it, I added diced carrot, bell pepper and spinach. Soooo yummy, and I paired it with Nicole Hunn's gluten-free on a shoestring's cornmeal flatbread, a new one for me, just a couple of ingredients baked in a skillet:  like, cornmeal and coconut milk mixed together, that is pretty much it! BUT WHAT a tasty, rich, crispy wonder :)  Have an awesome Sunday!

Yum! That's how I cook a lot of dinners -- some of this, some of that, throw it in the pot.
