May Veggie Potluck
We had another very successful vegan/vegetarian potluck in Longview. I am pleased how well it's turned out. There were about 25 people and we're seeing new faces each time. I am impressed at the wonderful dishes we're all getting to try. This time there were a lot more gluten free choices as well as many raw choices. Desirée did a great job demonstrating raw cinnamon rolls. They were very tasty. I had enough walnuts at home to whip up a batch the next day. Had to have some more of that.
Just some of the items at the buffet tables:
Arugula-Orange Fennel Salad
Lentil Apple Potato Salad
Black Rice, Mango, & Sugar Snap Pea Salad
Vegetarian Pie Crust Pizza
Sugar Cookie Fruit Bites
Potato Salad with tofu and herbs with a little cumin
Penne Pasta Primavera Salad
Collard Green Roll-Ups
Gluten Free Brownies
Three Bean Salad
Vegan Mac & Cheese with Broccoli
Israeli Cous Cous
Raw Berry Cheezecake
Vegan Five Grain Cookies
And Lester grabbed a few pounds of fresh asparagus, steamed and tossed them with herbs and olive oil.
The next one will be on June 26 and this time we have some folk musicians coming to entertain with their songs about plant based living and animal rights. I was contacted by a couple out of Eugene Oregon who travel around singing, sharing poetry, and telling stories. They are on a year long tour spreading the message about plant based eating and the benefits. They will be bringing some vegan soaps, lotions, and fun. If you are interested in adding plant based meals to your life, come on down. Maybe the sun will show itself and we can have an old fashioned Sunday afternoon party outside. I know, all you PNW residents are giggling at me right now. But, we do call it liquid sunshine.
