Ok, I titled this the "200th post!!" , partly to draw attention away from the fact that I
So I will try to distract you guys by pointing out that this is my 200th blog post!
And saying look who I got to meet! Susie on the left and Nikki (from I Love Heeze) on the right!
And the wonderful and talented Emilie from Conscious Kitchen- look at this cake that she baked!
And I got to taste some of the chocolatey, hazelnutty goodness that was that cake!!
And after the fest, at dinner, look at these gorgeous Cambodian rolls we got to eat at Elephant Walk restaurant!
And I got Veganomicon! And came home and promptly baked my first recipe from the book-
A pound cake!! Woooooo!
Did I do a good job of distracting anyone? No? Well, I have to apologize, but the fact is that the Veg Fest was incredibly crowded, claustrophobia-inducing, and hectic! We got to eat some good food, but in general, the samples this year didn't measure up to last year's stuff. One good thing was the ice cream from the Ice Cream Project - there was white Russian, pumpkin, peanut butter, and many other flavors. We tried espresso. Let's just say, this is reason enough to feel jealous of people who live in Boston.
What ruled this year was getting to meet a bunch of awesome people. Everything else you need to know, you can get by looking at my VegFest posts from last year.
Finally, a word of gratitude. When I posted last week about feeling a little lost in blogging, I never expected to get such an outpouring of support and wisdom from you guys! To everyone who wrote such incredible, smart, kind, and encouraging comments, I don't know what to say other than THANK YOU. It means the world to me that you guys read this blog and enjoy it as much as I enjoy all of yours. I promise to stretch my creativity muscle as much as it takes to be sure to keep blogging, and continuing to be part of this amazing community.
