As always, 'Mother' wasn't home.. leading me to attempt to find things on my own and entertain myself. (J/K, my mother Gothel was in traffic). Bff husband helped me find my way around the kitchen as soon as I got in and I started to get everything ready.
Once the hazelnuts were done, I realized Gothel must really have loved Rapunzel.. rubbing the skins off the hazelnuts and moving them into a clean bowl was painful! But it had to be done because the veggies in the soup and the stock was ready for them to be cooked into it!
Why? You may ask, Why did you need to make pan fried cornbread?
I have a frying pan.. duh. You know there are many many things you can do with a frying pan. One of which is teaching someone a lesson. (C'mon, you watched the movie). I'm thinking that I can take a pan to Gothel's head and make her realize I don't want a soup full of chicken stock and cows cream... so, well - I had to make her realize somehow!
The original recipe wanted it baked in the pan. We didn't have a pan we could bake with, so I used a different recipe, where you were supposed to turn the darn thing out (after it was much like a pancake) and onto an oiled baking sheet. Mine kind of didn't come out like it was supposed to - but it baked fine just the same and tasted just as yummy. When the bread was done, the soup was done.. timed just right!
So, it was finished. I served it out to probably the biggest group of people I've fed to date in this blog. A whopping number of "5". I had my mother Gothel, I had my Snow White, I had bff jr, bff husband and myself. Was it a hit??
And a few more photos of the evening.

Mother does know best!
Well, we have one more veganization.. number 100. What princess will we visit? Will we be on land, sea, in the air? What kind of un-vegan cook will we learn about?
All these questions and more when you tune back in for my very last veganization.. I'll tell you all about it on Monday. ;) Yup, it's like a soap opera - you've got to wait!
