Fun on the town

What a great response I got on the cinnammmmon rolls. If I wasn't already planning another batch, I'd make them again just for the nice comments :) Between all the fun we've been having, I've fixed up some other yummy stuff lately.

Free museum day was last weekend, and we decided to spend the day visiting some different ones in downtown. Our first stop was the Austin Museum of Art. They have an exhibit on everday art running, which was fun. I have to say, it is very exciting seeing a huge sandwhich made of vinyl, with every layer fully detailed. They also had a fun section on the latest and greatest designs that will be on the market soon. While there, we also got to eat our art.

Darth Toaster...I know, lame. Sorry.

We also went to the Children's Museum, but it was far too crowded. They had alot of fun stuff in there, so we vowed we would visit again on a weekday and just pay admission. The Mexican art museum was our last stop. I love Frieda Kahlo, and other mexican style art. It was a small gallery, and again pretty crowded, plus we were on a time limit, so I didn't get a chance to really take anything in. I guess that's the downfall of free museum day.

After staring down a huge vinyl BLT at the AMoA, I was really craving my own tasty sandwhich. With a block of tempeh in the fridge, a big fresh tomato, and a fresh loaf of homemade bread, what better that a TLT? I followed VWaV recipe exactly, just without sprouts. Mmmm, so delicious. Sorry, no pictures. But wait! I made up for it by using the tempeh bacon in two other meals.

Here's the tempeh frying. Not that pretty, but it smelled fantastic.PB&J on homemade bread, with a TLT salad (TLT minus the bread)
And I finally made the tofu omelette from Fat Free Vegan. Served with a side of tempeh bacon, and collards. The omelette was fantastic, and was similar to the way I used to like my omelettes. It was a little scary, actually. But it's so easy, and filling, I will definately be making it again.
And a bonus closeup shot of the PB&J. I'm so proud of my bread. I can't wait to get a breadmachine. There just won't be any stopping me.

Glad to hear another positive comment about the omelet! I have been wanting to try it out...
Seems like everyone is making their own bread these days! Your looks delicious, very fluffy and light.
Sounds like a fun day at the museum(s)!

My office is next door to AMoA and I've never made it past the gift shop! Looks like a fun time for the kids.

My bread machine died recently and I'm debating on whether to get another one. If you get one, let me know what brand you decided on.
