A Vegan Gori’s Adventures in Indian Restaurants

(0)
September 8, 2019

My first “official” date with A. ten years ago was at an Indian restaurant – Maharani. At the time, I wasn’t familiar with Indian food. Charlotte was not very diverse then and there were only a few Indian restaurants. Truthfully, I thought the food seemed strange … cauliflower and potatoes and peas? Umm, didn’t sound… Read More ›

Everything You Need To Know About The Impossible Whopper

Here’s What You Need To Know About Burger King’s Impossible Whopper: It’s Really Good. No, it doesn’t taste quite as good as the Impossible Burgers you would get at a sit-down restaurant like Quackies (my nickname for Duckworth’s), but it’s still good. Keep in mind Burger King is a fast food place – mass production… Read More ›

An “Impossible” Situation

It was a dark and stormy Wednesday, and I was all alone, working from home. Well – not exactly alone. My cats were somewhere, doing their mysterious little cat things, and my Jack Russell and my Jack Shit were causing mayhem in the kitchen. From the sound of things, they were getting into the recycle…. Read More ›

A Magic Vegan Bag … Or, How To (Sort Of) Enjoy Dining In Non-Veg-Friendly Restaurants

In a previous post I wrote about how I earned the nickname, “Mary Poppins.” (You can read the post here.) I was dining out with friends – and their friends – at an upscale, American-style restaurant with few vegan options. I made the best of my limited choices by bringing my own vegan condiments. My… Read More ›

The Mary Poppins Effect

I was not only my mother’s daughter; I was also my father’s sun, and he taught me the Boy Scout Motto: Be prepared. So when I dine out with coworkers or “acquaintances” at places I’m not too sure about, I don’t just do a little online menu research. I also take a big purse and… Read More ›

Ghost Story: Tiger’s Last Tale

I’ve been sharing Tiger’s Tale with you over the past month. I wish there was some huge, dramatic way to end his story. Unfortunately, there isn’t. The “visitations” started a week or two after Tiger’s death, and lasted maybe 4-6 weeks. These were not everyday occurrences, and they certainly were not predictable. They happened just… Read More ›

Ghost Story, Part IV – A Little Night Music

So Prince Harry Pumpkin and Baby Maggie Firsee are careful cats. They don’t push or break things. They delicately walk around objects. Occasionally, Baby Maggie Firsee is clumsy – but if she has an accident, it’s clearly an accident, and she’s embarrassed by it. While Prince Harry Pumpkin – despite his size – is like a… Read More ›

Ghost Story – Part III – Brotherly Love

Our whole little home universe revolved around Tiger. Not that he was ever an alpha cat  – I think Prince Harry is actually the Alpha. But Tiger was just so freakishly loving and sweet, everyone (furry or non furry) let him do or have whatever he desired. Including the sweet spot in bed beside me… Read More ›

Ghost Story, Part 2 – Things That Go BUMP The Night

Back when Tiger was younger, he loved to jump on top of tall things – like the refrigerator and bookshelves. And then knock as much stuff as he could down and watch it fall. Books. Vases. (Yeah, in retrospect he could be a little sh*t as a kitten.) Tiger especially enjoyed jumping on top of… Read More ›

Ghost Story Part 1 – Tiger’s Tale

Previously, in Ghost Story – Prologue –  I mentioned that I have seen my share of death – even inside this house I currently live in. The commonality, though, is that everyone – human, furred, or feathered – were all either really old or really sick. Death was sad, but not a surprise. There’s only… Read More ›

Updates To VegCharlotte Blog

“I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.” – L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables It’s October … yaaaaas! I wanted to alert everyone to a few changes I’ve made to my blog. An intrepid reader alerted me that, although the drop-down arrow was still there, the “Vegan Recipes” label had mysteriously… Read More ›

Ghost Story … Prologue …

  “During the day, I don’t believe in ghosts. At night, I’m a little more open-minded.” Do you believe in ghosts? Not too long ago, I would have answered, “Well, I do believe there are more things in Heaven and Earth that are dreamt of in your philosophy, Horatio.” Skeptical, yet open-minded, that was me….

It’s the first day of September – and the first day of Vegan MoFo 2018! (For readers who aren’t aware, Vegan MoFo stands for Vegan Month of Food.) Once again I am excited to be part of such a huge group blogging experience. Today’s prompt is, “Introduce Yourself” – so here goes! I’m Catherine – a… Read More ›

Amazon Prime Now For Vegans

The Scruff Muffin checks out my latest Amazon Prime Now delivery. So, this has been an …. interesting … summer. It started with a freak accident that had my car unexpectedly becoming best friends with a stranger’s tree. The car would need some bodywork, but miraculously I was unharmed. (Or so I thought. Much later… Read More ›
