Welcome to Veg'n in the 'Burbs!

It seems you have stumbled onto the companion blog to Homesteadin' in the 'burbs. Congratulations! Here you will find a treasure trove of vegetarian and vegan recipes that my family loves! I may even throw in some frugal shopping tips if you are good *wink* So pull up a seat, have a cup of coffee and enjoy!

I also want to mention that we do not strictly eat vegetarian/vegan. We work these in as often as possible but we do eat meat...we are in the process of pinning down local organic meats and buy from halal markets or eat wild game. All recipes are intended to be vegetarian but are meat optional.

My Mothers Day Present!!

Yesterday was the start of the weekend, so I started celebrateing early.  Our local vegetarian society, Food Awareness was having their monthly meeting at a restaurant I have always wanted to try, Escape Alley Sundry and as an added bonus, they had a guest speaker, Dr. William Tuttle. author of the bestselling book, The World Peace Diet.  Check it out!!

Anyway, his lecture was amazing and the food was equally great!  They had a whole vegan menu set up for the occasion with BBQ tofu sandwich with vegan coleslaw, vegan red beans and rice with Tofurky kielbasa, mushroom and garlic pasta, and a few more choices AND even had vegan cupcakes for dessert.  I had  the red beans and rice and unfortunately ate too fast to remember to take a pic.  I need to start carrying my camera with me.

I had a great time meeting new people and getting to hang out with Bianca from Vegan Crunk and the Food Awareness crew. I am really looking forward to next month's meeting!

So, if you only  want the main points of this post, here they are:
1.  check out The World Peace Diet by Dr. William Tuttle
2. If you live in Memphis or are visiting, check out Escape Alley Sundry.

The rest of my present came this morning, I got to sleep in till about 9:30am, had my coffee and even got some beautiful pink roses from Mance!!  My kids are driving us nuts, but overall, it's been a great day!!  Happy Mother's Day to all the mamas out there, regardless of whether your kids have 2 or 4 legs!!!
