Left to right: Anne, Steph, Misti, Me (recognize the dress? it's also in my banner), Greg (in a wig and dress), Holley, and Judith ... by the way, we're trying to look solemn here...I floated peach slices in each cup for extra yumminess:
We also snacked on Steph's (a.k.a. Poopie Bitch's) AMAZING Vegan Petit Fours:
cake business and she had to make a crap ton of these for a wedding the day before my party. So she made extras for us! There were two flavors, but I don't remember exactly what they were. One was vanilla-y and the other was ginger-ish. Both were to die for! And so perfect for a tea party!
I made flower-shaped Tofu Dill Salad Finger Sandwiches:
I used the tofu salad recipe from Vegan with a Vengeance and multigrain bread from the Whole Foods Bakery. Then I attempted to cut the sandwiches out with flower cookie cutters. Some looked better than others, but they were still pretty cute.
I also made Walnut Mushroom Paté with Whole Wheat Mini Toasts:
The paté recipe is from the Veganomicon, and it's one that Steph's made on a number of occasions for special events. I'd tried hers and knew it'd be perfect to make for this party. It's made with cremini mushrooms, toasted walnuts, onions, vinegar, and some other spices.
Wes couldn't stay for the party since he burned his hand while cooking biscuits last week, but he showed up early to drop off his super-delicious Vegan Corn Salad:
He combines white corn, tomatoes, red onion, green pepper, and since he's not vegan, he usually adds mayonaise. But this time, he borrowed some Veganaise so me and my crazy vegan friends could eat it. Wes also gave me a temperature-control deep fryer as my birthday gift. I can't wait to deep fry some breaded okra in it!
Oh, and in case you'd like that Georgia Peach Iced Tea recipe, here goes:
1 pint vodka
1 pint light rum
1 pint gin
1 pint peach schnapps
2 bottles sweet and sour mix
Combine in a large pitcher and chill. This makes about 15 servings.
