Is your blender grimy? Is there a film on the inside of the container? My vitamix was covered in smoothie gunk and hard water stains. I had forgotten how nice it looked when I bought it. I follow the regular cleaning routine which is a drop of dish soap, some water, and then let it run for a while. The smoothie gunk still built up. My vitamix needed a deep cleaning. After thinking about it for a bit, it turned out to be quick and easy.
Tonight, I had a great dinner with a bunch of vegans from a local meetup at On’s Kitchen. I had never been to this restaurant before, so I was unsure what to get. The meetup host suggested #49: Khao Mun Gai which is meat (tofu/mock duck) server with ginger and garlic sauce. She let me sample some. It was quite good with a nice strong ginger flavor, but I was in the mood for some veggies.
Last night was CAA’s 5th Annual Vegan Chili Cook Off. This was my first chance to attend one of their chili cook offs, and I had a great time. I wanted to attend previous events, but the scheduling didn’t work out until this year.
Yesterday, was the second annual Twin Cities Veg Fest. As last year, it was held at Coffman Union on the U of M campus. I was excited to try some new vegan food. Veg Fest is all about the tasty food right? Look at all the goodies in the grab bag!
Sometimes, a nicer breakfast is in order rather than rushed. Taking the time to make some fresh blueberry pancakes is the thing to do. I drenched mine in maple syrup from my friend’s forest. I helped gather the sap to make the syrup earlier this year. You can read about it here: sap fest 2103. The pancakes and syrup were just what this morning needed. Tasty!
