You want dinner?

Not all those who wander are lost.
- The Fellowship of the Ring by J. R. R. Tolkien

Dinner with friends is always a good time but there are so many options. So you don't want to cook? You can go out for dinner...

Lone Star with a couple of J's friends. I had a highly adapted version of their vegetarian burrito...and definitely better the second time around.

But if you do feel the urge to enter the kitchen you can invite a couple of friends round for a quiet meal (and some not so quiet games)...

You can't go wrong with homemade pizzas...

...and Apple and Plum Crumble with custard

But if you want something bigger but don't feel like cooking for an army, what about a Pot Luck?

My Pot Luck dinner plate: roast vege salad, roast potatoes, tofu and vermicelli noodle curry and homemade pizza (my contribution!)

My Pot Luck dessert bowl: fresh pineapple and strawberries, Triple Threat Chocolate "Cheese" Cake (my contribution with the recipe from My Sweet Vegan), Lite Licks hokey-pokey soy ice cream and grass jelly with brown sugar.

And because I can, how about some more cheesecake?!


  1. Why oh why are you taunting me with that cheesecake?!

    Oh, and I just noticed the Harry Potter Counter on your blog-- love it!

  2. How is that Chocolate Cheezecake from My Sweet Vegan? I was going to make it for my omni mom and need to know how good it sure looks amazing!

  3. "how about more cheesecake?"
    don't mind if I do. wow!

  4. Never had pumpkin pie?! Oh you must make some! Well, I guess you aren't living under a rock, since you do have some of that amazing cheesecake... that looks like a terrific alternative to pumpkin pie.

    But there's no hope for my poor sister; she doesn't like cheesecake either!!!

  5. oh my gosh I want it all! ; )

    I especially love the look of your potluck dessert bowl- scrummy!

    I want to make some cheesecake now.... : )

    Katie- I've never had pumpkin pie either but I definitely want to try it now! And your sister doesn't like cheesecake??? : 0 !

  6. Ha! ha! ha! You are such a tease, but I have already eaten with my eyes!

  7. Hahaha I've encountered Mr. Giant Clumpoffrozenveggies as well. (How would you like to really have that as a last name?)

  8. Yall have a restaurant called Lone Star? I'm guessing it wasn't named after the lone star state though...

    And wow, that is quite a potluck plate. Or should I say plates?

    And please tell me more about that cheesecake! (like what's on top?)
