Happy Birthday Vegan Metro West Network!

Hello Vegan Metro West Network!

We?re turning one year in November! It will be a year - last Nov 8th was our first official event. Time sure flies by when you?re having fun.

This past first year has been wonderful meeting new people, learning new vegan info trying out places to dine. I?m amazed at the amount and variety of events we took on:
Taza chocolate factory tour
Non-dairy beverage taste testing
Setain making demo
Vegan ice cream party
Garden party
DVD and potlucks
Dinning outs

We have such a wonderful group! Thank you everyone for your participation and contributions!!!


Halloween is tomorrow and if you sometimes struggle as I do with ideas for what to give out to the kids, I posted to the files a list of items and below are two websites I found that maybe helpful to you as well.
For vegan chocolate brands see:

For vegan candy and snacks (also list of ingredient definitions) see:

Since Thanksgiving is not too far behind, I also posted some recipes that are sure to please everyone in the dinner crowd.
The recipes are from the FARM website: http://www.farmusa.org/

Last year on Thanksgiving weekend, we did a great walk in Concord at the Minute Man National Park.
I?ll be out of town this year. So, if anyone would like to host or hostess for a walk/hike please let me know.


Here?s to another great year ahead!
As always please, please, please send me any suggestions for events or dining places!

Hope to see you at the BVS Food Festival tomorrow and Sunday.

Happy Halloween!
Victoria
