    Sean, our photographer, is out of town for a few months. We miss him. If anyone wants to take some pics of this event, that would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    I'm really looking forward to this. Never been to a meeting, and wasn't sure if a community like this existed here. Can't wait to cook/try some nom nom foods! :)

    Can you just bring wine?

    February 6, 2013

    • Julie

      Certainly :o)

    This should be a great potluck event, as usual. It's normal to be a bit nervous when you are new to a group, (we've all been there) but after the first event, you won't be new anymore! And remember, we are the FRIENDLY vegans. : ) Feel free to bring your friends, or come as one and you'll soon have lots of new friends there. And Carissa, Lorelei, Rain, and Yuriko; your dishes sound delicious - good vegan food will win over any vegan's heart. And some of us will certainly appreciate the wine. Thanks Janie, for your added support as well. So thanks for all your input and looking forward to seeing you there!

    don't be nervous. i will email you and say hi! so , to add a friend, 1) go to where it says "your rsvp: yes" in the upper green box. 2) click to change rsvp. 3) where it says guests, add one. 4) then save it by clicking the box under "add a comment".

    I will be bringing a vegan sweet potato peanut stew.

    And since the topic of wine came up, it's worth mentioning that animal products are often used in the production of wine, making it not vegan, even though they're usually not listed on the label. Here are a couple of links that provide listings of vegan wines:

    As promised, here are some guidelines about what's vegan:

    Vegans eat a wide variety of interesting, healthy, and delicious foods. Any perception that we are missing out on something, or are depriving ourselves, is outdated (if it was ever accurate). Compared to the things we do eat, the list of things we don't eat is small. Things Vegans Don't Eat: - Animals (mammals, birds, fish, reptiles, amphibians, insects, etc.) - Animals' secretions (milk, butter, ghee, cheese, whey, yogurt, honey, etc.) - Animals' eggs (whether from birds, reptiles, fish, etc.) - Various hidden ingredients (food glaze, confectioner's glaze, carmine, oyster sauce, bee pollen, bonito flakes, gelatin, etc.) This is just a brief overview; there are many great lists on the web. For example, the Vegetarian Resource Group has The Vegetarian Journal's Guide To Food Ingredients (http://www.vrg.org/ingredients/index.php).

    There seems to have been a misunderstanding. These messages go out to everyone who signed up for this event.
    - Carol was asking everyone if Carol can bring wine. Yes Carol, you can just bring wine. Carol was NOT asking Yuriko to bring wine.
    - Yuriko, Please do not bring any wine. We are happy you are bringing your Gyoza bowl and Soba salad. It sounds amazing.
    - Everyone, please bring whatever you wish to bring as long as it is vegan. I will soon post a message briefly reviewing what is and what is not vegan so everyone is clear. Thank you for being thoughtful about what you are bringing and just for attending. Looking forward to seeing you all there. :)

    Nom Nom food is delicious. Nom Nom = yum yum; it's just another way to declare tastiness.

    February 1, 2013

  • Radha V.

    Well, just wondering, what's a nom nom food?

    January 31, 2013

  • Michelle C.

    I haven't gone to any of these gatherings yet, but I know Jennifer from another meet-up group. Excited to meet some fellow vegans! I will have to start planning what I will make :)
