Buffy / random food / veganmofo 2009

Buffy got groomed today and she looked so cute I had to give her some blog space. Buffy is at least 16 years old and holding her own quite well. She's still sweet and playful. I found her at the Humane Society when she was three, and she's been with us ever since. She was adopted to be our beloved Starr's sister so he would have company during the day, and they had a lot of good years together. Now Buffy lives only with humans but she doesn't seem to mind. In fact, at this stage of her life she's not that into other dogs anymore, though she still gets excited to see a cat. Lucky for her, two of her human brothers have cats, and sometimes she gets to visit them.

Buffy reclining regally (and hoping I'll go away and stop taking her picture).

At the secondhand store yesterday I found two really nice little white CorningWare dishes. They're rounded rectangles about 5 inches by 7 inches, and the perfect size for heating up and serving a single portion of lunch. I was envisioning them as handy little serving dishes for spreads or olives at a party. They were only fifty cents! Here you see one filled with leftover quinoa pasta (my favorite) and stir-fry from the previous night's dinner.

My son has been making himself humongous burritos with different fillings. I wanted today's potato-carrot-pea-chipotle-tofu filling but not the tortilla so I made a salad and put the filling on top for a burrito salad. It was great. Below you can see one of the burritos.


  1. Buffy looks cute indeed! Pasta and stir fry is one of my favourite leftover things. It looks gorgeous in that new dish.

  2. Buffy is too cute! And the food looks delish!

  3. Aw, Buffy is a cutie!

  4. Mihl,
    The stir-fry had seitan so it would have suited you.

    Buffy thanks you.

    She's my sweet little girl.

  5. Hmmmmmm... who's cuter, the baby or the pup? Good thing I don't have to choose!

    I love the thought of the five-minute cake, by the way. Haven't had even five minutes to try it... how important is the spelt flour?

  6. Buffy looks very proud of her new 'do!

  7. Claire,
    Spelt flour is probably less important than the five minutes! :)

    Although Buffy is a poodle, she's always been very uninterested in grooming. I do think it makes her feel better, though.

  8. Awwww what a little sweetie! She's just gorgeous!
