Happy golden b day to meeeeeeee

Like, almost a month ago but meh. I turned 28 years old on Dec 28 and it was nothing short of friggin magical.

Wanna know what I did?? Do ya?

Of course you do.

Well, my first course of action was to get my brunch paid for by my parents so we went to French Meadow Bakery and I got this...some bowl full of tempeh and other things.


The tempeh left a lot to be desired honestly-it looked like it had been unpackaged and then just drizzled in sauce. I've had better at FMB (honestly pretty consistently) so I would chalk this up as a fluke and the gods clearly trying to punish me for being 28/awesome/badass on my b day. Whatevs universe. There was and is clearly no stopping me at this point so give up, ya jerks.

Then I promptly headed to AG Thomson House (a bed and breakfast in Duluth, MN) where I received an in-suite massage (!) and a vegan breakfast at my door the next morning. Here's some choice pictures from that whole thing:


What's a golden b day without soaking in an in-suite jacuzzi and watching Breaking Bad while getting ripped on some wine, am I right?




IT WAS BOMB. This b&b takes care of you to a T. I was very pleased with my stay and would recommend it to anyone. The food was fantastic and so was the service.

Finally, my awesome co-worker made me a vegan cheesecake:


Why is my life so awesome? ANSWER ME NOW DAMMIT.

You guys, book your stay at AG Thomson House. It is a mere 2 hours away from the Twin Cities and is just the mini-vacay I needed to get me charged and ready for my last grad school term (!!!)

Get there now!!

Let's get this party started right...

WITH A PHOTO OMFG:



So who has tried this? What did you think? Did you like it? I MUST KNOW. IT IS IMPERATIVE.

Also, this is sold at Good Earth Food Co Op in St Cloud, MN. I holler, Cloud...town.

 
Holy crap Herbivorous Butcher. I went to your Kickstarter event just recently (DONATE TO THEM NOW IF YOU WANT VEGAN BUTCHERS EVERWHERE FOR EVERYONE PLZ) and ate the best vegan meats/calzones EVER. Help support them so they can build a shop here and everywhere in the United States. Or just move to Mpls already and meet me there once it happens.

 
In other (delicious) news, Seward Café has been stepping it up a notch. Holy vegan nachos, am I right? And get this-my omni bruh (read: "brother) ate most of this even though he "wasn't hungry". Pfft.

 
Also, World Street Kitchen, where have you been all my life? Your Bangkok Burrito (vegan-style) is so damn good. Dare I say, I prefer it over a Chipotle burrito any day of the week?? WHAT AM I SAYING I MUST BE GOING CRAZY.
No. I'm not. I'm really not.

Man, I was hungry lately. Delicious updating....it's the bees knees, am I right?

GET TO ALL THESE PLACES... NOW!!!! Or I'll come after you. DON'T MAKE ME DO IT.

Bring it around towwwwn...brriiing it around towwwwwn.....

Ya so if you're not cool enough (pfft, you're following my blog, yer probs cool enough), that post subject line is taken from SpongeBob Squarepants. Which is one of the best shows on TV for children right now, albeit it sometimes is wildly inappropriate. Which means, clearly, I love it.

Anyways! You know me, eating delicious food all the time because, goshdarnit MN, you gots the best food around.

Hey are you all going to Twin Cities Veg Fest this Sunday 9/28? I'll be there and I'm totally going to Mistress Ginger's cooking demo because derr, why would you not?

Hey are you all going to Chicago Vegan Mania on October 11th? I'll be there!

Come find me, babes. And we'll...talk. And eat. Maybe.

Ok! Here's what I've eaten lately:

 Ok so if you've been living under a rock (I know I've done this once or twice. Don't feel bad), you've not heard of Herbivorous Butcher at the Minneapolis Farmers Market probs. Let me tell you-everything I have had (mock meats) from these guys has been the best mock meat I've ever EVER had. That's why I had to post about it again. Amazing. Check out the jerky, in its tangy, delicious sauce here:
 
 
They're apparently opening a storefront in the future. JOY.
 
Also, it's time, yet again, for me to give some love to Pizza Luce. Below is their tofu hash and some tofu benedict (I think...). Both amazing. I shame you for not being there now, eating these tasty morsels. SHAME ON YOU. SHAAAAAME.
 
 
 
SHAAAAAAAAAME!!!
*swiftly exits*
I'm OUT!!

Let me tell you a story...

...a story of...DELICIOUSNESS.

So there was this one time I went to The Triple Rock Social Club when I ate their vegan "big ass burrito" with home fries, jalapenos and nacho cheeze (on the side, naturally-I'm lady, whatever that means). I ate all of it btw so you get none. NONE. It was full of tofu hashy goodness. You bet your sweet ass that thing is gone now.




















And then there was this time I went to Hola Arepa...um, hello Hola Arepa. Where have you been all my life and wtf is an arepa. I don't even know, but it comes with a delicious vegan green sauce, sweet potatoes in the arepa and yuka fries on the side. By George, I think they've done me in!!! And I don't even know George. Kudos, H. Arepa. You guys rock.




And then. THEN there was this time I made a dish with the Vegan Jerky from Herbivorous Butcher...AND IT WAS AWESOME AND THAT IS ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW. GET TO THE MINNEAPOLIS WEEKEND FARMERS MARKET AND GET SOME FAKE VEGAN MEATS FROM THESE GUYS AND ALLOW YOUR TASTE BUDS TO BE OVERTAKEN WITH...TASTE. AND STUFF.




















What is my life and who am I. TELL ME NOW.
