The almost vegan birthday...

Yes, she does exist my oldest daughter Amber who turned 17 on October 30th. We celebrated it a couple days late with a couple of her friends and a bean taco bar. Amber or her friends are by no means vegetarian let alone vegan, but there where no complaints. I made a layered bean dip from The garden of vegan (pg 105) leaving out the vegan cheese but, did have some regular shredded cheddar on the side (hence the almost vegan title). I made the Vwav lemon gem cupcakes (Ambers favorite) into a cake and the icing from here The little ones got a lick of the frosting and gave it "ten thumbs up.. No wait a hundred thumbs up!" Yep, the little kids again made the wrapping paper. Amber w/ her boyfriend Brendon.


Other then that I have just been cooking a lot of non blog worthy repeats this week. I didn't even take pictures. "Chicken" fried seitan, baked tofu nuggets, and last night I was so lazy we just had boca burgers.

What a great party idea. I'll definitely use the bean taco bar idea in the future - that is if I ever make any friends here in this new town. The Lemon Gem cupcakes are also one of my favorite. Sadly, the last time I made them, I bit into something quite awful (I think it was a lump of baking soda or powder - can't remember now) and it has kind of soured me against them. Nice to finally meet your daughter. She's a very beautiful woman.

You can't go wrong with bean tacos. That's my fall-back for meals with my non-veg daughter. It looks like your daughter enjoyed her party.
