VeganMoFo: Mac 'n Cheese

Bird Family is for sale here
Medium: Watercolor on Arches paper
Size: Approximately 5"x7" (image size is 4"x6")
Will fit in 5"x7" frame! Signed on back.
Note: I am doing a painting-a-day challenge for VeganMoFo, and will be creating a new painting of rescue animals or vegan food throughout the month of October, and placing them for sale. All proceeds (minus shipping) will be donated to For the Animals Sanctuary, because they are a pretty super-great non-profit animal rescue and sanctuary, in Blairstown NJ, and are vegan owned and operated. Feeding, housing, and taking care of these animals costs a lot of money, and as a non-profit organization, they rely entirely on donations. Hopefully (with your help!), I'll be able to make a size-able donation at the end of the month!  You can check out all the paintings I have created so far that are still for sale here! 

This is totally another Mom-meal, some mac 'n cheese.  Granted hers was baked casserole-style, and this is my super-lazy-oh-my-god-I'm-hungry version.   I mix mine up right in the pot the pasta was boiled in.  I add in a healthy dose of nooch, a splash of unsweetened soy milk, about 1-2 TBS of earth balance, a clove or two of garlic, and some salt/pepper.  I stir until creamy, adding more earth balance or soy milk if need be, and wha-la, the ultimate lazy mac 'n cheese.  I added some broccoli into the boiling pasta water in the last minute so that I had some green in my meal.  If I'm feeling fancy, I'll add in a sprinkle or two of Daiya if I have any on hand (there is a bit of Daiya mozzarella in this bowl.) Yay Mom-meals!

Happy weekend friends!  :)


  1. I love lazy mac 'n' cheese! I also love the birds & I can't wait for them to arrive!

  2. I've had dinner and I'm about to go to bed but now I want a bowl of that mac n cheese!

    The bird family painting is beautiful :)
