I know I disappeared for a very long time. And I even had the courage to do this in the middle of VeganMoFo.
But I had two very good reasons:
First, the daughter got herself a boyfriend and is never at home anymore. So now I only have to cook for myself. That means throwing some food in a pot, put on a heater, eat! I’m now planning to change this kind of behavior and really start to cook and bake again.
Second, and this is actually the most important reason, and the best one too. Me and some friends started a Belgian Vegan Organisation. This took a lot of my time. If you wanna know more about it: you can check our FB page

This post takes a little break from my VeganMoFo 2014 theme. Today I had a team day with my colleagues. For this we visited the very lovely town Lille (France). Hélas, after a 10 minutes walk my colleagues discovered an oyster and fish degustation shop. Soon they were all inside and left me behind, totally perplexed, on the street. I decided to go for a little walk by wich I hoped to find the great bookshop ‘Furet du Nord‘. I did, and what I saw in the bookshop made me so happy that I knew this was the only thing I could write about today:
I only had 5 minutes, not enough time to have a look in all the books but there was one I just had to buy:

Lately the daughter isn’t so much home anymore for diner. As she doesn’t like tempeh, I finally have the opportunity to prepare dishes wich uses tempeh:
