Play With Your Food: ‘Wiches & Whatnot

It pains me to think of a day and age when people lived pre-sandwich, when ingredients were traditionally segregated upon plates and sliced bread had yet to be invented. Thankfully I recovered a bit by compiling this post.

Backstory on this series:

Behold, some vegetarian/vegan lunches and dinners we made at home and enjoyed with our mouths and bellies over the past few years. This is part of a short series that will catch up on past home-cooked dining experiences before I start posting current meals.

Mostly organic, mostly vegan*, mostly on the same plates.

Sorry, no recipes.** I didn’t much like rules back in these largely spontaneous and experimental cooking days shared here.

We made these meals with what was in the pantry and fridge, a few minutes of forethought, some fire, a feeling of goodwill toward the animal kingdom, and the inspiration of our appetites.

*Some of these were made when we were still vegetarian and not fully vegan. I included only ones I recall to have been vegan, but I don’t have a time machine so can’t swear on anyone’s grave about it.

**I’ll be sure to include ingredients and recipes with future creations, though.
