Happy Vegan Month of Food!

Hi folks,

That's right, it's the Vegan Month of Food! And this is the first time this month I have posted! :P

Tonight's quick Mexican meal warrants no space on the page.

I didn't post for a bit because we traveled two weekends in a row. The first weekend in October was our wedding anniversary! We stayed in Winston-Salem (NC) where we ate at Mary's Of Course, with a couple of nice vegan options.  We also hit Foothills Brewing Co. and Mellow Mushroom.  Overall, very lovely anniversary.

The second weekend in October, we visited family in the DC/Maryland area. I rode the Amtrak train from Cary, NC to Washington, DC and found that my dining car had TWO vegan options! One nice salad with a couscous side, and a vegan veggie burger (labelled as vegan on the menu.) Go Amtrak!

This morning I made the Wheat-Meat Stroganoff from Vegan Planet... Nom!  My husband doesn't like mushrooms, so I have to saute them on the side and add them to my half. We made the seitan last night at home using a small box of wheat gluten.

This vegan month of food for us will most likely include an apple pie, several winter squash recipes, chili, soups, sweet potato and black bean enchiladas, roasted fall vegetables, and more!

Cheers to you all and many a delish fall meal we wish you! Don't forget to buy local and seasonal when possible!
