leftovertown, population one

no biggie. just a visit from leftovertown. featured is a salad made of bianca's chicken fried tofu on a bed of baby greens with some 'maters n' dressing. the salad dressing was a cinch: store bought salsa and some veganaise. what can i say? sometimes i just don't feel like cooking.

fyi: sometimes i don't have time to post a real food porn pic and entry and will often blather on about a product i like. an example of this is the entry about the dark chocolates. this by no means is a directive to any of you readers. i realize all you purdy peeps are grown up and can think for yourselves.

speaking of thinking for yourself, i have to get this out. sometimes i don't always like the campaigns that a certain animal-rights group comes out with to gain new members. point in case: the sexiest vegetarian award. c'mon PETA: vegans come in all shapes and sizes. sure-sure the contestants are all aesthetically pleasing, but in that very commercial sort of way that markets to the male gaze. for an elastic second, i considered sending them a photo of me making a funny face to make a point, but i don't feel like playing ping-pong with their marketing department.

it took me a long time to come to this conclusion (and this will probably shock my spouse to read my typed words) but I AM BEAUTIFUL and SO ARE YOU. we all have the capacity to be sexy or ugly, and to beat a cliche to death it really is all about who you are on the inside. i have no doubt that some of the winners from that contest are great people, but i don't think looks alone provide a solid enough foundation for sex appeal.

...and then mrs. jen molica was awarded P.I.T.A.V.'s sexiest vegetarian award!

HELL YEAH! Vegan feminist patriarchy bashing snarky redheads unite!

I am LOVING your blog! Seriously, I'm just reading through it all.

And can I just say....I can't believe I have never thought to combine salsa with veganaisse but now that you've put the thought into my head I can't wait to try it!

I like the product reviews because I get sick of wasting money on awful tasting crap!
