Thanksgiving (Leftovers) !

First year back in a few years at a family friends annual Thanksgiving dinner. Drank a few manhattans and ate 2 giant plates of food. There was a lot of vegan food that people brought so I didn't leave hungry! Thank you I love you all!!

clockwise: roasted root vegetables (made by dad), roasted garlicy brussel spouts (made by a guest), vegan/gluten free rice stuffing (made specially for my dad and I by our hostess), roasted garlic mash potatoes and gf mushroom gravy (made by me) and Field Roast hazelnut/cranberry stuffed roast.

Missing - sauteed kale with mushrooms, onion, garlic & red pepper flakes (made by me), vegan candied yams (made by same guest), cucumber/tomato/black olive greek salad - minus feta (made by another guest) and vegan/gf Pumpkin pie (made by mom).

LA Vegan Beer Fest

This Saturday I went to LA Vegan Beer Fest with my good friend Martin (who isn't vegan!) We got there a little late but it was still enough time to try all the beers and eat lots of food.
From the Seabirds Truck hummus nachos, potato and jackfruit taquitos and the locals burrito.
I forgot which hot dog we got from The Franken Stand but it was soo good.. it might have been the Franken?

We headed over to Doomie's a little late so the buffalo legs were sold out! But we still picked up some taquitos and a shrimp cocktail.
