I’ve toyed with the idea of veganism before. It conjures up images of girls in the type long flowy skirts I was always too short to wear and golden burnt sunshine and fresh laundry drying in the summer breeze.
So tonight I tried to make vegan chocolate chip zucchini muffins. They should have been really good. But it’s incredible how much a zucchini and a cucumber look alike. And how disgustingly different they taste in baked goods. I should have just gone back to the store after I realized my mistake. But I figured, hey…I’ll try it. This cucumber needs to get used soon anyway. Mistake. They are inedible. The smell is overpowering and cooked cucumber has such a strong flavour and texture.
I wouldn’t say this if it weren’t true. I love cucumber. But gross. Seriously gross. I’m not going to give up, though. I’ll try again soon. And I’ll try again with an actual freaking zucchini. Gross.
