|Alien wants to wish you a happy sprang!|
Anyway, all that is to say, it's finally spring!! OMG! I hate winter so much. But since winter is an inescapable fact, I grin and try to make it bearable with warming soups and stews and lots of pumpkin. But those days are finally behind us for another year. It's still chilly here, but I'll take a 50-degree day over a 30-degree day. Jackets > coats.
The Spring Equinox (also known as Ostara) is traditionally celebrated with eggy dishes since we're celebrating the fertility of Mother Earth. But you know I don't eat that stuff, so I welcomed spring with vegan eggs!
On March 20th — the official first day of spring — I joined Cassi and Brenna at Imagine Vegan Cafe to celebrate Cassi's one-year veganaversary. Imagine is about to come out with a new menu, and they're taking off a few items. One of those is the Egg Salad Sandwich. It's messy as hell since Kristie is generous with the egg salad, so I ate this with a fork. But it was a fond farewell to one of my favorite chickpea-based egg salads. On the the side, I had the Brown Sugared Carrots because carrots remind me of bunnies.
I also made Hot Cross Buns using Vegan Dad's recipe. These were just lightly sweet, spicy with cinnamon and clove, and flecked with currants.
I got even "egg"-ier on Friday, but I'm saving that post for tomorrow night because I plan to include a recipe, and I don't have time to type it up before The Walking Dead comes on. #priorities
