Seitan Sausage Variation Requests?
First, what does the picture of the National Aquarium have to do with the post? Nothing. It is a picture I took a few years ago at lunch with my husband and it is one of my favorite photos from the Baltimore Inner Harbor. I wanted to share it with all of you so you could see a little bit of the town where I live.
Today I am moving very slowly. The morning after cooking class I always feel a little unwell and this morning it is worse than normal. My head was screaming at me this morning as though it spent the night in a vice (probably the vino since my body isn’t used to it now). We had a lovely Nero D’Avola last night that happens to be one of my old favorites and I think my body is telling me to give up the vino 100% (darn it, you would think a glass once a week would be fine). After my morning green drink, goji and mixed berry smoothie and green tea with ginger and vitamin C I am beginning to feel more human and ready to start my day (at 11 am, yeesh it is almost lunch time).
Today my plan is to make whole wheat bread and turn it into breadcrumbs so that I can spend the afternoon making various versions of seitan. If anyone has any requests for particular seitan sausages please post a comment. Otherwise I will be making chorizo, andouille and another variation of a cutlet, yet to be determined.
I hope everyone is having a great day today. While I have a little motivation I am going to get my bread dough rising and do a little yoga. Does anyone else think yoga improves a headache, or is it just me?
I will be back later today with a few seitan recipes.
