I’m Alive

In the past month I uprooted my home and moved across the country for the next six months, sold my car, hiked the Adirondacks, sat front row at a fashion show, had a birthday, saw Venus and Serena Williams play from nosebleed seats at the US Open, and started a new job.  It’s been busy!  I cooked a lot while I was in the mountains but didn’t manage to take many pictures.  I mad a good vegan lasagna and a chocolate cake for my boy’s mom’s birthday – alas nothing to show for it!  So in my lack of photographic evidence, I offer up my Vegan’s Hundred, created by Hannah at BitterSweet and of My Sweet Vegan fame.

1) Copy this list into your own blog, including these instructions.
2) Bold all the items you’ve eaten.
3) Cross out any items that you would never consider eating.
4) Post a comment here once you’ve finished and link your post back to this one.
5) Pass it on!

  1. Glad to have you back!

  2. what an enjoyable little survey!

  3. Cool! I totally agree with you on being adventurous. Once you’re a vegan, you know there’s no gristle or mystery meat in the food, so it’s a lot more fun to be brave!

  4. welcome back! happy bday…!
