Late Thanksgiving Post.

Hello there!

I'm getting back into the blog swing of things and I tend to forget to make posts right after I have delicious meals. I'll get better. I promise! So with that out of the way I wanted to share my first ever Thanksgiving meal... even though I've been vegan for 3 and 1/2 years! (I usually just get drunk with my little brother and laugh my head off!)

Clockwise from the left: Tofurkey roast, garlic kale potatoes
with mushroom gravy, collard greens, sweet potatoes, white
rice and Mom's homemade green bean casserole in the center.

Everything was so delicious! I actually strayed from being a holiday lazy ass and cooked a full meal! Well, I cooked some of it. I had planned on cooking a lot more but then my mom informed me that she'd be making plenty of vegan stuff so I'd have lots to eat.

Garlic/Kale Potatoes

Homemade Green Bean Casserole made by my Mom!

And no get together is complete without my favorite coconut lemon cake from Veganomicon. Can't seem to get enough of it! I usually make a bundt but I forgot it at home and had to settle for my mom's springform pans. Note to self: Get some of those!

Coconut Lemon cake w/Lemon Glaze topped w/ Coconut.

Vegan Chocolate Chip Pumpkin muffins (made by my sister!)

Was glad I got to eat something this year. I also took home a crapload of leftovers! Lasted for like 4 days! Thats all I ate! I would eat this way daily if I had the time. It'd be worth the weight gain! Hahaha...

So long to Atomic #7...

It's strange how I worked on this blog for a few years and then all of a sudden stopped. Let's see if I can end this craziness right here and now!

I'd like to dedicate this blog post to a place I will dearly miss. About a year and a half ago a friend texted me that there was a new ice cream shop in town that did made to order vegan ice cream. I couldn't believe it! How exciting! The only shop of it's kind and it was about a mile from my job. Here are some of the wonderful vegan creations I was lucky enough to enjoy:

Peanut butter banana flavored almond milk ice
cream w/penguin coat, aka chocolate shell.

PB Coconut milk ice cream w/ cookie dough, vegan caramel and
penguin coat. My favorite creation of them all!!!

PB Coconut milk ice cream w/ Penguin. Can you tell I love PB?

Magda's Mango coconut almond milk ice cream w/peaches.

Vanilla almond milk ice cream with hot fudge.


Samoa cupcake (the best ever!)

Double Chocolate cupcake.

Vanilla almond sugar cookie cupcake and chocolate peanut
butter cupcake.

And finally, My birthday cupcakes from my good friend Amy.
Coffee flavored cupcake and chocolate mint cupcake. So good!

Goodbye to Ginger and all of the wonderful girls of Atomic 7. I am so thankful that I had a place to go to, even for a short amount of time. Maybe one day Atomic #7 will re-open and I can continue my trustworthy treat addiction. I hope I see you all around!!!

Check out this Quarry Girl post!

You would think that a magazine strictly for vegans would know better.

Another Trip to Red Velvet Cafe.

A few posts back I gave a follow-up to a comment about Red Velvet Cafe here in Las Vegas that an anonymous reader expressed. I didn't have the same experience at the Cafe that they did. I'm bummed they didn't get the treatment that I get. The last time I went, they were still pleasant, but I felt forgotten. So, my roommate asked me to go along with her for lunch a few days ago.

Spicy "Chicken" Wrap:

Again, we received good service, our food came fast, the people that worked there were really nice, we joked around, la la la... It seems to be hit or miss on when they will disappoint. The one thing that I've noticed is that if it's not busy they seem to handle themselves well. I've been there when it was jam packed and almost dead. They don't seem to be very well off if there are too many people looking to eat. Like I said before... I'm not going out of my way to go there, but I won't write them off completely.

Vegan Red Velvet Cake:

I will say this... This cake makes me want to head my ass over there every damn day. New mission: Find vegan red velvet cake that tops this!
