Raw Vegan Potluck in Walnut Creek

  • Mar 27, 2011 · 1:00 PM
  • Jay's & Phoenix's Apartment

From Raederle:

I'm going to miss all my new friends here, and I'm especially going to miss all the awesome rawvegan potlucks that are so frequent and delightful in the bay area. As a last celebration, we're hosting a rawve...gan potluck at our apartment.

All dishes must contain no sugar whatsoever that is the least bit refined or that came out of a packet, bottle or can. No stevia, no xylitol, no agave nectar, none at all.

Acceptable: Figs, Dates, Bananas, Strawberries, Etc

Not Acceptable: Agave, Yaccon Syrup, Maple Syrup, Honey, Stevia, Xylitol, Coconut Sugar, Etc

Invited: You don't have to be invited to come. This is open to raw foodies (& people interested in rawveganism) in general.

1:00pm -- Arrival, Introductions, Plate Arrangements, Photos of Dishes that are brought, Discussion of what's been brought, Recipes put out to share

2:30pm -- Eating salads, soups, pates, wraps and other green things

3:30pm -- Eating cakes, pies, cookies and other desserts

4:00pm -- Socializing, chilling, sharing stories and recipes

5:00pm -- Clean up and clear out. (Roughly, if we're all still having a ball, then clean up and chat and relax.)

We will be serving two to four different delicious things as well.

"Why are you moving?"

There are a lot of reasons, but here are the most major ones:

1. We can not grow anything efficiently in our apartment. The balcony gets less than an hour of sunlight a day. The place we're moving to has a large growing space.

2. My family is in Buffalo, NY and I miss them dearly, as well as many friends.

3. The living expenses (rent, utilities, etc) is continually going up in this area, and in our apartment complex. The cost of college that my husband had been attending has inflated to the point where he can no longer afford to even take a single course for a semester.

4. My husband is seeking new possibilities for his future career. We're embarking on a partnership in rawvegan chef services; catering and doing demonstrations.

    Ashby is closest to me. But if I'm picking you up in Berkeley it should be earlier than 12:45. I was thinking Walnut Creek. What's your number in case I need it? Mine is[masked]

    Hey Jordan. I can probably pick you up. I was thinking of barting and biking but likely won't due to weather and since Nona was hoping to catch a ride too. I guess it'd make sense to pick you up around 12:30 or so? Is there a bart train around then?

    I unfortunately don't own a bike, so is anyone willing to give me a ride from the BART on their way there? I don't wanna miss this. (:
