The Best Christmas Gift EVER!

This year for Christmas, Jason sponsored a pig in my name at Poplar Springs Farm Animal Sanctuary! How freaking cool is that! I was so super excited about this gift that I literally cried when I opened it! I am not sure what the name of the pig I will be helping is, but I am hoping that maybe it will be Bobby, one of the pigs I met and had a chance to spend time with while we were at Poplar Spring in November (for Thanksgiving with the Turkeys). It really does not matter which pig I get to take care of, I...

A Vegan “Stock Pile” for Winter

Posted by on Jan 2, 2012 in Blog | Comments Off on A Vegan “Stock Pile” for Winter

Each Winter I like to take a day or two and do what I like to call “stock pile the freezer.” I spend eight to ten hours in the kitchen making a ton of food to fill the freezer with. This gives us a tons of already prepared options to have for dinner on nights that we have other stuff gong on and I do not feel like cooking or have time to cook. It also works out as a great way to have something made when company shows up unexpectedly, or  we are going someplace for dinner and I need to bring my own...

A “Spork Fed” Thanksgiving!

Posted by on Nov 28, 2011 in Blog | Comments Off on A “Spork Fed” Thanksgiving!

This year, our Thanksgiving dinner was amazing. While my family does not host a 100% vegan Thanksgiving, Jason and I simply prepare our own food and bring it to where ever we are having dinner and enjoy it there. This year, dinner was at Mom Linde’s house. We alternate each year between my family and Jason’s and this year was his family’s turn to be blessed with our presence, lol. In addition to making dinner for Jason and I, I was also preparing dinner for our niece Alyssa (this was her first...
