Cloudy With a Chance of Vegan Etouffe

On the menu tonight-delicious vegan étouffée from the Vegan Dad's Blog-I am in love with all of his recipes! Especially all these great Cajun & Creole inspired recipes! Scrumptious!

Now on to my quick recipe for the Vegan Shamrock Shakes:

2c vegan vanilla ice cream (we used So Delicious brand)
2c vegan milk (we used vanilla Almond Breeze)
1/4 tsp mint extract
green food coloring-use as much as necessary to get a nice kelly green

Blend & ENJOY! Easy right?! :)

Now on to my serious part of this post-Elizabeth Taylor has passed away. My heart is so sad. I've loved her since I was a girl and watched National Velvet, then as a teen found her too adorable in Jane Eyre, and as a high-schooler obsessed with classic film I was overcome by her talent in films like Giant, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Father of the Bride, Little Women, Cleopatra, Suddenly Last Summer, and my fave Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? She was such a talented actress, humanitarian, and such a stunner. It's so sad to me when actors I admire pass away. It's like a little part of me dies for a little bit too. It just makes me so nostalgic for all the movies & actors I grew up loving & being in awe of their talent. Just look at her at work and in life:

What a life, what a woman, and what a talent. All images are courtesy of mptv images. Enjoy some of her work today, you'll be glad you did.

Take care chickens.
