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!


Vacation Fun

I took another vacation this past week because the one I took a few weeks ago just wasn’t long enough.  I do feel more rested now, kinda.

Or maybe just okay with going back to work because except for today, I’ve spent my whole vacation running around getting my photo prints ready for the art show.

Today was my planned day of relaxation, so I slept in, played WoW for a few hours, got lunch at Veggie Grill and then saw Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter.

Last night I went with some friends to the Pioneers of Goth concert.

Before the show I took my friend Irene to Pho Veggie (Thuyen Vien) for her birthday dinner.  We had soy garlic chicken, banana wrap appetizer and lemon pepper fried tofu, and fried rice.  SO GOOD.

chillin on the couches before the show…..

Vegan Food and Fun

Posted in asian, dinner, events, restaurants on April 29, 2012 by nosferatofu

As an early Mother’s Day gift, on Friday I took my mom out to dinner at Au Lac, a popular Asian themed vegan restaurant in my area.  They specialize in raw, which is good, but not really my thing.  We got a soy beef steak with asparagus and brown rice, fried tofu with pepper, and kung pao chicken.  I don’t normally eat so much soy, but this was a special occasion 🙂

They were out of their awesome choconut xtacy dessert, so we tried a rainbow fruit type thing, and I got an avocado parfait.  It was seriously delicious.

My main reason for taking my mom out to dinner was to get her in the area of a particular Barnes & Noble where there was going to be a book signing by the vegan chef for Ellen DeGeneres.  My mom likes to watch the Ellen show, and earlier in the week he was on there talking about  his new cookbook, Vegan Cooking for Carnivores, that was coming out and I said I would get it for her for mother’s  day.  So when I was going to go to the bookstore to pick it up, I saw he was doing a book signing.  What a coincidence!

It was a lot of fun and the  chef is really nice.  I ended up meeting his wife and son, who were very nice as well.  The cookbook has some incredible recipes, and is now my favorite cookbook….and finally…..a vegan cookbook written by a guy!

Check it out, the recipes are seriously great.  All in all, it was a really nice Friday night.

Getting Ready for the Holidays

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.

Just got back from the Internet Librarian conference in Monterey.

It was a fun trip!  Got to eat lots of good food, but unfortunately I forgot to take many pictures.  Here’s one of the potato gnocchi I had on the first night I got into town.

It was delicious!

Vegan Ghoulash

Made this a few weeks ago.  Very tasty!  I have made it before and I have made a post about it before, but it was a few years ago so I figured I could get away with sharing it again.

Yup….very good indeed.
