PPK Picnic!

After living in the Great White North for 26 years, I am very appreciative that I now live somewhere where one can picnic in February.

My PPK buddies and I met up for an awesome picnic this weekend. It was pretty spectacular. Behold:

The edamame corn salad from Veganomicon made by Kathy and Omer:

Peanut stew from Viva Vegan made by Autumn:

I made empanadas (dough from Viva Vegan) filled with Trader Joe’s soy chorizo and a can of their Cuban black beans. That soy chorizo is like crack to me, I can’t get enough of it. I normally don’t buy it as it isn’t the healthiest thing in the world, but it’s perfect for occasions such as this.

Kathy and Omer also brought cookies! Chewy-chocolate raspberry cookies from Veganomicon to be exact:

And last but certainly not least, Autumn brought key lime pie from Vegan Pie in the Sky! This is actually key limon pie. I had never heard of a limon before. Apparently it’s a combination of a lime and a lemon. Either way, the pie was crazy good.

Topped with Soyatoo:

Not to toot our own horns, but I love when I get together with my PPK buddies for potlucks…the food is just so darn good. By the end I had a very full, and a very happy, belly:

  1. A picnic in February? That’s crazy talk! Everything looks so good, I agree about the PPK meet-ups, everything always tastes awesome. PPKers know their shit.

  2. Sounds like a good time! Everything looks absolutely delicious, especially your empanadas. I love TJ’s soyrizo too, and also save it for special occasions.

    I don’t know what I love more, our picnics or our restaurant outings. PPK meetups are the best!

    Trader Joe’s soy chorizo is awesome!! I use it in Veganomicon’s jambalaya instead of seitan. It completely screws up the taste it’s supposed to have but OMG is it amazing. It’s my omni boyfriend’s favorite food. Ever.
