It's still Vegan MoFo though & as veganism's a pretty big part of my day to day life I still have plenty to write about!
I started the day with baked beans on rye sourdough toast & then boxed up some of the cookies I've been baking to take to my tattoo artist.
He was pretty happy to see these, as was his vegan colleague. My tattoo artist's rad, aside from the fact that he's a shit hot artist he seems to like my ridiculous ideas (you've seen my broccoli right?) & he was happy to source vegan inks for me when I asked him. After the appointment I headed home through the park where I saw my favourite squirrel...
...I've seen this squirrel (at least I like to think it's the same squirrel!) almost every time I've walked through this park since I moved to Brighton almost 10 years ago. The squirrel was there the day I fell asleep drunk in the park on my 20th birthday, the day Nick & I walked to our wedding, the day I met 3 of my bff's at a PPK potluck picnic there & on countless other uneventful days. I've been wanting to get a tattoo of this squirrel for a while now & I think I'm going to have to now that it came to hung out with me whilst I was limping home after getting my latest ink.
I also walked via via Infinity Foods to grab snacks. As soon as I got home I piled my snacks onto a tray with the laptop, some magazines & the post that had arrived & headed upstairs to chill out in bed with a My So Called Life DVD.
As you can see I bought some InSpiral kale chips & some mixed vegetable crisps, a sausage roll & some cherry juice. I also grabbed a peach & pear Alpro soya yoghurt from the fridge & there's a black & white cookie in the tin. I'm currently munching my way through all of that!
I also opened my post & kapow, more vegan related stuff! My new cookbooks had arrived!
I've had The Vegan Table on my Amazon wish list for about a year & after flicking through it at a friends the other day I had to buy it. I've also seen countless wonderful pictures of food from Vegan Diner on peoples blogs during MoFo so I thought why buy one cookbook when you could get two?! They're both beautiful books & the pictures have been making me wish that I was up for cooking right now!
Also about an hour ago another awesome vegan-related thing happened. I found out that I won the Veg Fest twitter giveaway! A whole hamper of vegan goodies will be winging its way to me soon!!
It's time for me to go & harass Nick to make me a baguette pizza now! Maybe he'll read this & get the not-so-subtle hint!
