Today is the last day to enter to win Four FREE Tickets to the Italian dinner & show. The deadline to enter is 8pm EST!!!!
Last weekend I went to Indiana to celebrate the first birthday of my cousin’s daughter. They were serving hamburgers and hotdogs (hamburgs, as Tete calls them), but lucky me – they thought of me for dinner and dessert!
Never heard of Earth Fare before, but it’s like a small-scale Whole Foods and there was one just a few minutes from my cousin’s house. She picked up these black bean burgers,
I was just going to cook them in the microwave ’cause I saw the cheesy burgers cooking on the grill and all the stuff sticking to the grate. However…
the top rack on the grill had never been used, so I had grilled burgers for the first time in years and years.
I went all out and had two of them, they were really good! Also had fruit salad, and pasta salad with kalamata olives and artichokes. And for dessert…
Luna & Larry’s Coconut Bliss ice cream! And COOKIES!!!! Vegan “Everything” cookies also by Earth Fare. Not very healthy, but they *are* cookies after all, not a health food. You buy the dough,
and bake at home.
I decided to make a cookie sundae. I put a couple big scoops of ice cream over a freshly-baked cookie,
and topped it with sprinkles and nuts. I could feel myself getting fatter with each bite. It was worth it.
Besides, later that day I burned off the extra calories doing a 15-minute sprint through the store on our way home! Snapped a few pictures for you:
Expensive snacks and candy I couldn’t afford 🙂
Even pricier candy!
Almost bought these, but I’m saving up for a shopping spree at Food Fight.
Various non-dairy milks.
Lots of kombucha.
They also had a bunch of vegan cosmetics. In the end, because of my little Oregonian-inspired spending freeze, I just got a few necessities – Tom’s of Maine toothpaste, Dr. Bronner’s Organic lip balm, kombucha for the ride home, and I picked up a box of vegan dog treats for Jack 🙂 I’ll have to go back sometime when I have more than $20 to spend and 15 minutes to shop!
