Seabirds Food Truck

Posted in dessert, dinner, lunch, mexican, restaurants on July 24, 2012 by nosferatofu

The best vegan/vegetarian food truck in my area was at my work today for our health and fitness event.

I speed walked a 5k and then I enjoyed beer battered avocado tacos and a vegan nutella cupcake.

It was insanely delicious!

Getting Ready for the Holidays

Posted in asian, dessert, dinner, holiday, restaurants on December 9, 2011 by nosferatofu

Went to Thuyen Vien last week for dinner and to put in my order for their holiday feast.  It looks so delicious I can’t wait to try it out.

They have really good vegan cheesecake.

I ordered a spring wellington from Native Foods for my Easter meal.  It looks delicious, I can’t wait to try it.

While there, I indulged in a vegan cheese cake.  So good!

I’m craving a chocolate chip hemp milk shake.  I had one on Sunday and I’m wanting another.  Soooooo tasty.

That’s all I have to share, I had lots of good food this past week and I forgot to photograph any of it 😦

To Live and Dine in LA

I kicked off the weekend on Friday when I met a friend at Native Foods for dinner.

Yesterday I went to my mom and grandma’s for a nice homecooked dinner…..soy chicken cutlets, grilled asparagus and red potatoes.

Today (sunday)…..pancakes for breakfast and because breakfast is good anytime, country tofu scramble with fakin’ bacon tempeh strips for dinner.

I went out to a Smiths/Morrissey club in Los Angeles with my awesome bellydancing, multi-talented friend (and general partner in crime), Irene. We met our friend Karla and her boyfriend there. Lots of fun in Echo Park….lots of lame hipsters too! Irene and I cut out of the club a bit early so we could head around the corner to a historic cafe called The Brite Spot for some post-club munchies.

bagel burger

They have some great vegetarian and vegan items, and we both got the bagel burger with soy patty, onions, dairy-free cream cheese and chipotle veganaise. And we finished it off with a vegan chocolate lava cake.

Epic noms for an epic weekend!

Mother’s Day and other Adventures

vegan fritatta

My whole family gathered at my mom’s house for Mother’s Day.  The weather was nice, and the day was relaxing.

I’ve been lazy lately so I didn’t cook anything.  But my mom cooked an awesome meal.  Vegan fritattas along with vegan chocolate chip pancakes and also cake with soy ice cream.

vegan cake

It was some good eatin’.

rose lemonade

I also met last Friday with my friend Annie at Loving Hut, which is a vegan Asian food place.  They have a few scattered around southern California.  The one we went to was in Orange, which was kind of an ugly location but I give them respect for doing their best to beautify their little area.  They built a small patio and decorated things very nicely.  It wasn’t thee best Asian food I’ve had but I’d go there again for sure.

One thing they had going very well was the rose lemonade.  That was pretty good.

Family Dinner

vegan cookies

This past Saturday my whole family got together for a family night. Dinner, movie and games.

We watched Kintergarten Cop. That movie is so funny with so many great lines, I haven’t seen it in forever and I had forgotten how funny Arnold Schwarzenegger can be!

We also played a round of Apples to Apples. Very fun game, it is best when you know the people fairly well.

I was very busy on Saturday before the get together; the school semester started that day so I was setting up my class online and also working on a business web page for a friend. So….I didn’t actually do much cooking but my mom did a great job.

shepherd pie

On the menu: Shepard Pie (my mom uses that Silken French Vanilla soy creamer to flavor the mashed potatoes and it is SO good), Salad and delicious vegan cookies.

I was so busy taking pictures of the food I didn’t take many pictures of the family, but of course my little cousin loves to pose for the camera (as kids do), so I got a few shots of him (and I couldn’t resist a flower photo):
