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:
