Every two weeks I pick up my haul at the community produce co-op.
Every two weeks I post a photo of what was included in the basket.
Every two weeks you say, “Fruits and vegetables. Awesome. Next?”
I’ll tell you what’s next! I’ve started indulging in Vegan Tuesdays! Sadly, I wasn’t very prepared to deal with this past Tuesday’s vegan adventure. In fact, on Tuesday afternoon I ended up making a semi-desperate phone call to the Ritz cracker people to see if their Reduced Fat crackers are vegan.
Me: It’s not on the PETA list, but OTHER Ritz crackers ARE, so I’ve GOTTA KNOW! TALK TO ME ABOUT THE NATURAL FLAVORS!!!
Ritz Man: Well, the natural flavors COULD be derived from plants OR animals.
Me: . . .
Ritz Man: Nabisco won’t tell us what they are.
Me: You work for Nabisco, and they won’t tell you if the natural flavors are plants or animals?!
Ritz Man: I’m sorry for the inconvenience. Why don’t you give me your mailing address so we can send you special offers regarding some new and exciting Nabisco products?
Me: Here is your mission. Find out what the natural flavors are, and then I’ll give you my mailing address.
As I ponder the transition from vegetarianism to veganism, please know that I’m going to be relying heavily on VegaDeli. Also know that as I attempt to make our house reflect our style, I’ll be relying on VegaDeli once again.
They’re currently selling the work of a local artist named Sandy Griffin, and I absolutely love it. (I had a serious tie going on between Make Breakfast, Not War and Make Windmills, Not War. If you’re in St. Louis, go to VegaDeli, get a bone builder juice and a raw taco wrap, and enjoy the atmosphere. Also, give me a heads-up. I’ll probably want to meet you there.)
Hey, look! Henry and Scout love each other!
(You might think Henry’s hair is getting a little unruly. What you don’t know is that he’s auditioning for Kajagoogoo in a few weeks.)
