A Raw Valentine's Affair

 Come out and bring a friend or two to enjoy an our Valentine's Raw Food Pot Luck Dinner evening at our amazing meeting place "Sandy Bonus Fine Arts Studio! It just keeps getting better and better and you are all the ones making it happen!

I have invited our long time friends Central Florida Vegetarians to join us so lets make this special. All my dear dear friends and members get in the kitchen and make your BEST DISH to share with our special friends.

Yours truly "Chef Olive" will be planting Chocolate Nougats throughout the dishes germinating "Love of Living Foods, Friends, Family and Good Times". Some of the things I'll be preparing for you to enjoy will be:
*A special bottomless sun-steeped Cinnamon Fruited Sangria and Chocolate Mint Water
*"Krackers" with Salsa and "Krackers" with Hummus
*Not sure of the entree just yet but guarantee "Guest Special"
*Chocolate Hearts, Nut Fudge, and Banana Chocolate Tarts all drizzled with Mexican Chocolate Sauce and Kumquat Curls.

As always we will enter and start setting up at 5pm and should start eating around 5:30pm. Please see the thread on the message board saying recipes, recipes, and more recipes for some raw recipe choices and sites to guide you. Choose and bring a raw, vegan (by this I mean a dish consisting of fresh ..... hopefully organic fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, sprouted grains and herbs only) This dish should feed at least 10 people with a donation of $3.00, or come and eat for a donation of $10.00. This cost helps me recover some of the outside costs and pay for this beautiful space. I try always to bring several dishes that will give all of you a taste. If you are new to Raw Foods and confused about what to bring please know that those donations in lieu of the dish do help.

I love this meetup place and extending an invitation to all of you to bring family, friends, neighbors and any you know interested in a Raw Food Lifestyle. See You There!
