I noticed that Jamie Oliver provides vegan recipes on his website. I don’t watch TV or cooking shows, but this makes him the coolest celebrity chef. Unlike that irritating Gordon Ramsay, I hate him.

Anyway… Yesterday I tried mac ‘n’ cheese and I can honestly tell it was the best god damn mac ‘n’ cheese I have ever tasted! Instant favorite! (This is actually not much coming from my mouth, as I have never tasted mac ‘n’ cheese before, always wanted though.)

And this is first dish I have cooked totally without electricity, yay!
