Burritos and Bonnaroo!

Hey everybody! I'm about to depart for a four-day camping trip at Bonnaroo Music Festival on a 700-acre farm in Manchester, Tennessee. NOFX, Eminem, Lil' Wayne, Wanda Jackson, and the Scissor Sisters will be there! And the best part — my all-time favorite filmmaker John Waters will be performing in the comedy tent.

But first, let me share my meal from last night — Potato & Cauliflower Burritos from the June issue of Vegetarian Times:

These were so yummy, and totally veggie-based. I typically need protein with every meal. But these bean-less burritos were so satisfying thanks to potatoes, local cauliflower, and a fire-roasted, chipotle tomato-garlic sauce. Oh, and they're topped with the new Daiya Pepperjack Shreds.

On the side, I roasted some local Beets & Baby Squash:

Now beets take FOREVER to roast, and tender baby squash takes no time at all. So I coated each with olive oil and roasted them on separate pans. Then I mixed them together upon serving. I love this time of year, when fresh veggies at the farmer's market are in abundance.

Alright, well see y'all later. I'll be back from Bonnaroo on Sunday, but I doubt I'll blog again until Monday night.

I just realized I haven't got my June issue of VT yet... wonder what's up with that?

Anywho, I LOVE camping and music festivals. I've never been to one as big as Bonnaroo, but I'd like to go to Wakarusa next year (when my job will no longer interfere...hehe). It used to be up by Lawrence, but now it's down in Arkansas, which is cool cause that just means I get more awesome road trip time!

Aren't the new Daiya pepperjack shreds so good?! Your burrito & squash/beet dinner looks awesome. I, too, love this time of year with all the fresh, local veggies available. It's the best!
