better late than never: how i spent world meat-out day at work

yeah, yeah better late than never as my momma would say. actually she would never say that. she's known for other quirky quotes like "that man is a blowhard pus gut", "well isn't that just cuter n' owlshit!", and my favorite "pretty is as pretty does". no, she was not related to forrest gump's mamma. sorry to digress. i had a blast on world meat out day and these are my phone picture posts. it was a food miracle of sorts because only 3 of us brought food, but we had enough for both the mail order and retail department. shown above is chris's wheat berry and bean salad, shar's savory bread pudding-(it might sound gross but it was really good), and one of the sesame ginger peanut cookies i made. the bread pudding had soysage, spinach, tofu, and a bready crust. it was more breakfast casserole than bread pudding.
watch out, there's a bowl of chili with corn chip wings! my spouse vin made a double batch of vegan chili that i brought to the potluck and everyone happily nommed. everyone was asking "what's the secret ingredient?" the cheezy part of me would say, "love". vin would say "probably the msg from the kroger brand chili seasoning", which is vegan-(we checked). fun fact: the enzymatic process in making MSG can come from animals as indicated here.

i think i'm going to start subbing 'owlshit' for the word cute in my normal vocab. "oh, that is so owlshit!!" :) this will make me so happy. :)

i wouldn't say that the msg-animal relation is a fun fact, :) but definitely one worth knowing. thanks!
