Being vegan – or just doing something good – isn’t a zero-sum game.

xoJane is not exactly a great source of culinary advice, but I really enjoyed this tipsheet on what to do with veggie scraps. Usually I compost or collect them for veggie stock. Now I want broccoli slaw.

Remember nooch-converted boyfriend?
He misses his tortilla chips doused in nooch from his work trip on the sea near Singapore.

I mark the first day of this blog as my vegan-iversary.
I wanted a food blog for awhile, but I didn’t want to do it unless I knew I was committed to being a full-time herbivore.
It was just a couple months earlier that two of my best friends and I challenged each other to go a whole month vegan and we all failed. I failed on the first day, which also happened to coincide with the first day of a new job in a new city. I wandered around looking for places to eat. I found a sandwich shop and ordered the eggplant. They were out of eggplant. So I got the turkey. I felt bad.
Since then, I’ve nooch-ed and miso-ed my way through a life of full-time veggiehood and I have loved it so much. More

Well hello there. I hope you’ve had a lovely summer. I’ve continued to cook away in a constant struggle to keep up with all the beautiful goods coming through my kitchen via CSA.
Let’s review what I’ve come up with in the past several weeks.
I’m a pickle whore, no joke. My whole life. So it’s been fun to work up some quick pickles with the pickling cucumbers that I’ve received and especially the radishes when I don’t have time or ideas for anything special for them. The radishes are perfect to have on hand for salad fixins.
Next: Pastas! More

Last weekend my grandma wanted her birthday dinner at Famous Dave’s in Tacoma, a veritable temple of barbecued meat.
I was pretty prepared to order like a baked potato and find that for some reason the restaurant only had pre-buttered potatoes in their kitchen (I don’t even know if that’s a thing).
So I came in still full from the brunch I had at about 1 p.m. that day (the Five Point was crowded and having a slow time of it).
And you know what? I wish I hadn’t come there full. More

As I’ve said before, weekday breakfast is a challenge for this sleepyhead. I can’t muster effort to do anything in the morning. Often I give up on trying to do my hair.
But on weekends or days off when I’m not out brunching or running around, I’ve taken to my own eat-in brunch. It’s nice. I’m cleaning out my fridge, I’m brewing up some coffee and there is no rush. And then there are leftovers, meaning I have a treat to take with me to work and get a good start to my day. (Boom.)
