New Blog Direction and Cilantro White Bean Sauce

I made a delicious sauce the other night out of cilantro, white beans and zucchini but before I share the recipe, I want to talk about the direction of this blog.

I am no longer really doing the Vegan for $3.33 a Day.  My life has changed SOOO much in the last 6 months and since I cook all day long for my jobs, I am not cooking as much as I used to either.

I have, however, lost quite a bit of weight since I moved to Boston and might expand on that a bit more in future posts..

I am not sure how to re-title my blog or exactly what I'm going to write about, but I miss blogging and connecting with you guys.  I know I will always be very passionate about frugal vegan food and recipes.

Sooo...  just a warning that things are going to change around here!

Onto the sauce...  it is really simple and delicious. I used cilantro, but parsley and basil would be good or a combo of all three.
