Mystery Meal - Revealed

Last night, Big Sprout announced that he wanted to make brunch today, which - of course - was music to my ears. He selected the Orange Scones and Tempeh Bacon from Veganomicon, and Jim ran up to Publix to pick up a few ingredients we were missing.

This morning, I slept in (yay!), and Jim supervised the cooking. All by himself, Big Sprout measured and mixed the ingredients, rolled out the dough and cut it into "pizza-shaped" pieces. After they baked, he topped them off with an orange glaze. The result was a light, fluffy scone - not overly sweet with just the right amount of orange flavor. I was very impressed since this recipe called for a few advance kitchen moves; Big Sprout now knows how to zest an orange!

The tempeh bacon didn't go according to plan . . . mostly because instead of picking up the plain package of tempeh the recipe called for, Jim picked up the sliced, pre-seasoned kind (I just wrote "tempeh" on the shopping list). It worked out well though, and breakfast turned out to be a real treat for everyone!

  1. Yummy Saturday Brunch!How exiting is that! I am not sure that my husband can even spell tempeh:) But he surprised me with a Boca Chik'n Pattie for dinner!

  2. Thanks so much, ladies! Big Sprout gets such a kick out of reading comments. He really liked the tempeh comment. LOL!
