VeganMofo & Run Vegan Run

Saturday night was pizza night.

I tried a new gluten free all purpose flour blend. It turned out really well. db made the sauce and as you can see I topped it with mushrooms, red and green peppers, some hottish pepper from the garden and an heirloom tomato that I don't know the name of. The end result was very good. This photo was taken before it went in the oven. I don't have an after photo because it didn't turn out so well.

Sunday

I made my first gluten free loaf of bread! I just discovered Living Without magazine. I noticed the cover because it had beautiful looking loaves of bread. Now that I've tried all vegan varieties of rice bread made I decided I needed to try and make my own to get that homemade crust and rustic feel and taste to bread.

Look at this loaf!

I'm so excited (yes, I'm excited about bread). It was very easy to make and the crust is beautiful. Looks like I'll be making my own bread.

Running Results

The Trail River Run results finally came in and I made top ten! I was tenth amongst the women runners (10 out of 41 of us, but still I'm thrilled). I was 27th overall out of 73 runners total. Even after the disappointment of not being able to run the marathon, this has been a good running year. It's been personal bests all along.

Iron Chef Challenge #3

I'm working on it.

Meanwhile here's a picture of Gigi taken earlier today.

The bread looks fantastic! It looks like it rose decently, too.

It did rise quite nicely as well. It really did surprise me. I'm enjoying my morning toast and now I think I need to add some herbs for some new flavours in the bread.

Cute kitty! :)

Great job on the Trail River Run! If you do this well injured think how much you're going to rock once you're all healed up!

Finally, I was thinking, you almost certainly already know about it but on the .0009% chance that you don't, vegan cookbook author Jo Stepaniak has a book called Food Allergy Survival Guide that includes a bunch of gluten-free recipes you might enjoy.
