I just love how a beautiful day and delicious food can bring people together. I haven't had so much fun playing frisbee or running around outside in a long while, and my feet were proof of that (feet and calves were completely covered with dirt by the time the day ended).

This year was my first ever experience with vegan grilling, and I went all out - veggie skewers with seitan and tempeh, homemade mushroom burgers, and oatmeal cluster cookies.
The weather was gorgeous, despite reports saying isolated thunderstorms. Everyone loved the food, and best of all, my most carnivorous friend ate four mushroom burgers without a bun. :)
I'm so excited for the next chance to BBQ - thankfully the summer has just begun! Happy Memorial Day everyone!!

I have one amazing mom.
In honor of Mother's Day, as well as her May 15th birthday, my mom has decided to take the 30-Day PETA "Veg Pledge" as a way of improving her health, conditions for farm animals, and the environment this month. I am so proud of my mom for her bravery and openness, so much so that I wanted to share it with everyone on my blog.
My mom has always supported my decision to go vegan with endless amounts of acceptance and love. She has been one of the most encouraging forces in every area of my life, and her decision to give veganism a try proves even more what a caring, as well as daring, woman my mom is. Go mom!

Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers - human, as well as animal - out there this year!
