Post X-Mas Buzz


 Hope everyone had a great Tuesday. Nothing like an ol' Tuesday for opening gifts and hoggin' out on comfort food. Happens all the time.

I wish I could tell you I spent all my Christmases eating Chinese food and going to movies, but I didn't. I'm from an assimilated family and was raised with the holly jolly dysfunction of commercialism tied in with a splash of the baby Jeebus. So at our house, we celebrate both. To me, it's really all about the food!
I gotta talk about the chance I had to have some "me" time--went out for Indian food and tried Bhindi Masala for the first time. Woah, I never thought I could like curried okra, but I do!  My only regret is diving in before taking a picture of the uneaten meal. The local eatery Taste of India has plenty to eat if you're vegan. They label anything on their menu that's vegan with a big, fat "V" for vegan friendly. How cool is that?
And the holidays wouldn't be the holidays without something pumpkiny. I am a fan of these pumpkin cheesecake squares from Kittee's bake 'zine Papa Tofu-(I think it is out of print!)

Selfish plug: I removed captcha from my blog to encourage others to comment. I'm kinda sad that the only comments these days come from spammers. Ugh. So please, if you are a real person, leave me a real comment on any of my entries to cheer me up a little.

Hope you have a fabulous New Year! Indian food sounds great after all the rich holiday food.

Spam comments are such a bummer. But your Indian food sounds delicious and those pumpkin squares look awesome too! I have that Papa Tofu zine but haven't made those yet. I'll have to add them to my new year's to-do list. Happy holidays to you :)

I keep reading your blog, honest!

I just rarely leave comments, and not just on your blog. Sometimes I have comment days when I try to leave comments on everything I read, but then again, I don't want to leave off topic comments...

Hope to see you soon!

I hate those captcha thingies because I generally get them wrong the first time (my eyes -- they don't work so well).

BUT, I'm a new reader and will keep reading :-) Thanks for sharing your vegan adventures! Blogs like yours make my life happier.
