How To Prep For Eating Your Pantry In The Time Of Corona

(8)
March 28, 2020

So, how do you prep for Eating Your Pantry (Originally, the Eat The Pantry Challenge?) This started out as a money-saving challenge, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, eating from our pantry is something most of us are going to be doing. The CDC has recommended those over 60 and those with health conditions (such… Read More ›

VBL: Eat The Pantry Challenge!

I love doing a food challenge every now and then! Here is one I particularly love doing – and a challenge especially suited for frugal vegans! The “Eat The Pantry” or “Pantry Challenge!” It’s a challenge where, for a certain length of time, you commit to eating what’s already in your pantry! The best time… Read More ›

Vegan Bucket List 2020 – Document Your Journey

This one’s mostly for new vegans and vegan wannabes, about how keeping a SIMPLE journal can help ease the transition. But even vegan veterans can benefit from occasionally keeping a journal.

Vegan Bucket List 2020 – Embrace Health!

I always think of the New Year, not as a time for “resolutions,” but as a time for challenges and new adventures. So I’ve come up with a Vegan Bucket List series for 2020. Some of the items will be Charlotte-specific – but many are things you can do, anywhere. The first few posts are… Read More ›

HELP! A Vegan Is Coming To Thanksgiving Dinner!

Thanksgiving is quickly approaching. There are more vegans and people following a plant-based diet than ever. And my omni friends are panicking! “HELP!” they are texting me. “I’ve got vegans coming to Thanksgiving dinner!” The first thing I do is text them, in large friendly letters, “DON’T PANIC.” It’s not that hard. It really isn’t…. Read More ›

A Magical, Vegan Hallowedding

Beautiful (and delicious!) gothic wedding cake from Sweet Cherry Bakery Sweet Cherry Bakery – Apex, NC Sassool – Multiple Locations (Cary & Raliegh, NC) Prelude KD entered my life at a time when most people seemed to be rapidly exiting. Dear readers, I know you are drooling for salacious details. (OK, a few of you… Read More ›

A Vegan Gori’s Adventures in Indian Restaurants

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 ›
