Disney at Home: Princess and The Frog + Mickey Beignets

I'll be headed to Disney World later this month so I figured it would be the perfect time for another Disney at Home night, this time in the theme of the Princess and The Frog.
In order to get in a truly Tiana-like mood, I prepared breakfast for dinner, complete with beignets, coffee, orange juice, bacon and sausage. We enjoyed this meal while watching Princess and the Frog on Disney Plus.
I served up the vegan version for myself and the non-vegan assortment for the rest of my family.
Since non-vegan bacon and sausage are pretty well known, I'm going to skip showing them. 
The brand of sausage I used was the Beyond Breakfast Sausage links and the Bacon (bacn) was LightLife.
What I will include of the non-vegan assortment, is that I used Cafe du Monde beignet mix to create their beignets. My mom grabbed a box while shopping so I needed to make use of it. You can find it on Amazon and in Louisiana. Just follow the directions on the box.

For the vegan beignets I used:
1 cup lukewarm water + 2 tbsp vanilla extract
¾ cup granulated sugar
1 envelope active dry yeast
2 tbsp liquid Just eggs
1¼ teaspoons salt
1 - 12.2 oz can vegan evaporated milk
5 cups cake flour
2 cups all purpose flour
¼ cup vegan shortening
Oil, for deep-frying
Vegan confectioner’s sugar for coating
First, mix the lukewarm water with the granulated sugar and yeast in a large bowl. Let it sit for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, beat the salt and evaporated milk into the vegan eggs; then, mix the egg mixture with the yeast mixture. In a separate bowl, mix together both of the flours. Start by adding 3 cups of the flour to the yeast mixture, stirring to combine. Add the shortening and continue to stir while slowly adding the remaining flour. Remove the dough from the bowl, place it onto a lightly floured surface, and knead it until it’s smooth, about 5 minutes.Spray a large bowl with nonstick spray, put dough into the bowl, and cover it with plastic wrap or a towel. Let the dough rise in a warm place for at least 2 hours. Preheat oil in a deep-fryer to 350 °F. Roll the dough out to about ¼-inch thickness and cut into Mickey shapes using a sprayed cookie cutter. Deep-fry the dough, flipping constantly, until the pastries become a golden-brown, about 5-6 minutes. After the beignets are fried, transfer them to a paper towel-lined plate and dust them with confectioners’ sugar. Enjoy hot!

I served this up with chicory coffee of course!

Vegan Meal Prep

Hello Dames and Dolls! I finally caved! This week I meal prepped. I always see cute pics and used to see coworkers who meticulously portioned colorful, fragrant foods into little plastic and glass containers. I also thought each time "Who has the time?" Well, since Corona, I now do. And I did just that. First, came grocery shopping, then as life goes I had to delay prepping by one day. But finally, I gloriously prepped. Keeping everything somewhat simple and using  containers from Amazon , I prepped: Hummus and Veggies Potato and Kale bowls Chili with tortilla strips Burger Salad Fresh Fruit Fruit and Yogurt Parfaits Granola with Milk Granola with Yogurt Smoothie Bowls I listed all the breakdowns/recipes on my IG, @doseofvegan_, so be sure to go check it out!
