Okay, so I'm nowhere near as annoying as Rachel Ray ... at least I don't think I am. But tonight, I led a hummus-making demo at my vegetarian group's monthly meeting.
Here I am doing my best Vanna White on the food processor:
Our group, Food Awareness, meets on the first Thursday of each month at Wild Oats in Memphis. We plan activities, like vegan dinner outings, potlucks, and leafleting events. This month we're all going out to Java, Juice & Jazz (the new vegan soul food place) for lunch. We're hosting veggie info booths at a couple of Earth Day Fests. And we're dressing like zombies and handing out veggie info at the city's annual Zombie March downtown. Last year, over 200 people dressed like zombies and marched through the tourist hotspots! It was so much fun! We like to bring veggie leaflets with us. After all, if anyone needs a good talking to about the benefits of a vegetarian diet, it's zombies. They eat brains, for god sake!
Before the meeting, I scarfed down a TLT — Tempeh Bacon, Lettuce, and Tomato. I needed to use the rest of my tempeh bacon. Served on sprouted grain bread with Veganaise, tomato, and spring greens ... yum!
I bought Datsun, my doggie, a special carob and yogurt cookie at this pet supply store in Cordova called Little John's Animall. He really didn't want to wait for me to snap this picture. You can see the anticipation in his face. Isn't he precious?
