Pasta Days and New Book Stuff

... climate change makes Germany feel like Thailand or some similar place at the moment with an air humidity of at least 80% and summer's peak temperatures.

This means I have breakfast, have a bento, go out for a drink or ice cream after work and come back home between 8 and 10 pm to have some pasta with pesto or a thrown-together salad. Nothing exciting here, though I might do an ice cream parlour report (found one that does rice milke ice cream not too far away from where I live. Squee!).

I bought a couple and was also given a few new cookbooks for and around my birthday last month, but haven't got round to trying very much.

The Joy of Vegan Baking Ginger Muffins
Surprise, surprise! They didn't taste of ginger at all but were awesome. Omni friends loved them. Not too sweet, either, but the sugar/ginger mixture nearly ruined my kitchen.

I told you I'm a messy baker!

Some ugly but extremely tasty veggie curry from The Asian Vegan Kitchen, I have to look up the exact name. Billion thanks for Mr A. for giving it to me <3 "

I'm having friends over and need to make something in a pinch"-food: Couscous Salad Taboulé Style, Hummus, bought dolmades, olives and pita bread. Probably my most favourite combo ever!

Ick it's hot here too. But you found a parlour that sells ricemilk ice cream?! Lucky lucky girl!

And the muffins sound delicious as well. Anything with ginger sounds good to me.

Well even if you're busy it looks like you're finding time for some good food. If I ever arrived at a friend's place to find that tabouleh/hummus/dolmades arrangement I'd be on cloud nine!

Arghhh, this heat is almost killing me! (I'm used to Madrid, a lot hotter but a lot drier!)

I have a couple of random questions: do you know where to find kelp noodles in Germany or at least how they're called?
And where do you buy baking soda?

I had dolmades today and thought of your post :-)

I am not a vegan but I find some of this dishes fabulous. I just bought tofu the other day and not sure how to fix it. I'll be back for sure. Blog Love.
