breakfast burrito: amy’s traditional refried beans, fried potatoes, leftover roasted tomato salsa, avocado in a mission tortilla; grapefruit

leftover coffee

homemade horseradish hummus and spinach on homemade beer bread; baby carrots; pirate’s booty veggie flavor

ants an a log with 365 organic no-salt creamy peanut butter, celery, and raisins; graham crackers from vegan cookies invade your cookie jar that my housemate made; sesame-date brownies (see previous)

at tamalefest 2010: none of the savory tamale were vegan, so for dinner i had various kinds of pita/tortilla chips with hummus and salsa. i was in charge of the sweet dessert tamales, which were made of masa, earth balance, pecans, sugar, and cinnamon, and filled with either grated coconut/brown sugar, crushed pineapple/brown sugar, or sweet guava paste (found in brick form in the mexican section at fiesta). the guava ones were by far the best. i won’t post the recipe here, but if anyone is interested in making vegan sweet or savory tamales, i would be happy to share my ideas/recipes/instructions

negra modelo; abita restoration pale ale (both listed as vegan on barnivore)

    tamalefest 2010? i want to go to there


    emily's reply:

    in the interest of not getting my hands all pork-y and lard-y, my job was taking the tamales that people had already rolled up and sewing little pieces of colored thread through the corn husks to designate which ones had which filling before placing them all in a 24-gallon steamer pot. you (all) should come to tamalefest 2011!
