Fast Food

Okay, so not like drive-thru fast ... but heat-it-up-in-five-minutes-or-less fast. That's what I've been eating since Tuesday night — whatever I can throw together with minimal time and effort. Tuesday night, I steamed some frozen Kimchee Dumplings with a Cabbage-Squash Stir-fry:

The dumplings were fantastic! Poopie Bitch and I picked up a few bags on a recent run to the massive Asian/Mexican market on Winchester. For the sauce, I combined some hoisin, soy sauce, garlic powder, onion powder, and sesame oil. And the stir-fry was a quick way to use up some squash that would have gone bad soon.

Why am I not slaving over a hot stove these days? Because I'm moving, that's why. I've been packing for days! Ick! And I'll be officially in the new place by Sunday! Yea!

The downside to this (besides moving against my will) is that I will not have internet service for a few days. This could be my last post for a week or so, but I'll have Internet here through Saturday, so if I eat something really tasty, I'll let you know.

Oh, and I'm also skipping Iron Cupcake this month since many of my baking supplies are packed away. But check out Amanda's cupcakes on Walking the Vegan Line. This girl BRAVED HURRICANE IKE TO MAKE CUPCAKES! That's a cupcake hero, my friends...a true cupcake hero.

i hope your move goes down as smooth as cold chocolate flavored silk on a hot day. i have some kim chee i need to use, so maybe i'll buy some wonton wrappers and make my own dumplings. great idea!

jessy said...

Breedale said...

Wow! You are on it girl. How long was it from the time you found out until the actual move. Not very long from what I can tell. You are keeping it together mentally and still coming up with good things to eat. I salute you! Good luck with everything and just know you will be missed.

I hope your move is as stress-free as possible.

Your "fast food" looks incredible and I bet it tasted incredible, too!

Moving is such a pain in the arse...glad you have tasty dumplings to help take the edge off!

ChocolateCoveredVegan said...

Fast food pretty much epitomizes almost all my meals. But how does yours look so much better than mine?!?!

I'm so sorry you have to move; hopefully your new place will be BETTER! I was forced to move last year (they're using my old location as the PARKING LOT for the new Bush Library!), and my new place is much better, so HA!

Well for a quickly prepared meal, this looks really good.

I hope your move goes smoothly!

Cyn said...

That looks delicious! You need yummy food when you're moving to counteract the annoyingness of having to move.

I wish I had dumplings for my fast-food nights. I ate cashew nuts for dinner three days in a row this week! Not good... good luck for your move and in your new home!
