I was recently visiting my mom in Connecticut and saw that I was the same weekend as the first annual vegfest. I called up the dreamgeek to see if he’d go with me, but in typical fashion he forgot about it and made plans to visit friends in the big apple. So, I suckered my mom into going and taking the babies.
There was a ton of people. I was impressed. I remember people thinking I was weird for not eating meat when I lived there, now there’s a vegfest? Wow.
Anyway, they had a ton of booths set up with samples. I was happy that a fair amount of the samples were gluten free. My favorites were the tofulettes and the hummus bar – or that’s what I called it there was a spread of like ten different hummuses!
I also need to point out that my favorite Scranton shop ladies from the Fanciful Fox were there – and they recognized me and Bea. I’m well on my way to making them my friends…
I also met Chef AJ. I saw her when I first walked it in and it was driving me bananas the whole time that I couldn’t place her then I did – she had been on Cupcake Wars! So I wen up to her and asked of she’d been on Cupcake Wars and she was like yes. And that was it. I was so excited and I think my excitement level was a bit much for her.
Anyway, when we got home we checked out our booty and my mom and the babies shared the Cedar’s hummus sample we got:
Bea just liked feeding it to my mom but as you can guess, Lucien loved it:
So, I also want to share my favorite line of the day – see, I’ve mentioned that the babies are vegetarians but I don’t think I’ve mentioned that my mom gives me a really hard time about it. She does. When we were at the vegfest, we were looking at some vegan tshirts and she says to me, like it was her idea, “vegan is a good way to be you know.” I just rolled my eyes…what else can you do at that point?
