My spirit animal

This sloth is a dead ringer for me.

Just needs a beer with those veggies.

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?

Happy vegan-iversary to me

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

Dispatch from the CSA rabbit hole

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.

First: Pickling!

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

A not-horrible experience at a barbecue joint

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
