My friend, and zine contributer, Wes is running a marathon along with some other vegan folks to raise money for Sunny Day Farms Animal Sanctuary. In support of this his training I have decided to go on complete bedrest until he makes it to his fundraising goal! We came up with an awesome idea to raise some funds thanks to inspiration from Katie over at Don’t Eat off the Sidewalk.
The awesome idea is FABULOUS PRIZES from your all of your favorite Texans!
For ever 10 dollars that you donate to the Crowdrise page you will gain an entry into the prize package giveaway. So if you donate 1,000 dollars you will get 100 entries and probably destroy the competition.
The Grand Prize Package will be a copy of the brand new Blissful Bites (read JL goes Vegan’s review and check out some sample recipes!) a copy of the Sunny Days in Texas zine, some homemade pralines made by Wes himself, some Oatmeal Cream Pies made by Sugar-Skull vegan baker extraordinaire Kristen, a Chili-Making Kit from Chili Queen MollyJade and the world’s best Vegan Queso from Food For Lovers. The Grand Prize will only be available to the US and Canada because I’ll need to ship those delicious baked goods quickly!
The Second Place Winner will get a copy of the zine, a jar of queso, and a chili spice mix and will be open to anyone worldwide.
TO ENTER: Donate at least 10 dollars to Team Sunny Day at Crowdrise. Remember, the more you donate the more chances you have to win. When they send you a receipt, forward that to me veganlazysmurf at gmail dot com and I will save them all until I do the drawing on November 13. Remember to use an email that you check often so I can tell you if you win!
Thanks to everyone for the donations and prizes! We love Sunny Day Farms and want to help those animals live out the rest of their lives in such a wonderful place.
This weekend I am really excited to buy my copy of Blissful Bites from Christy Morgan herself! She is going to be in town this weekend doing a autumn themed cooking demo at the Natural Epicurean and there is going to be a book release shindig (or is it a hootenanny?) at Counter Culture on Saturday night. I am especially excited to get the book at the party because Christy is donating 20% of the profits to Sunny Day Farms Animal Sanctuary so it is a win win situation. Also Counter Culture has been running specials from recipes in Blissful Bites all week long and will continue to do so through the weekend. I think it is such a cool idea because you can sample the food from the book without expending any effort whatsoever. I heard from one of my sources that that the specials are really good too.
I’m not surprised at the awesomeness because I got to try a Blissful Bites recipe myself last night. Christy donated three recipes to the Sunny Days in Texas cook zine, which I happen to have a copy of. Last night I decided to try the Blackened Tempeh Caesar Wrap. After finishing up I immediately put the leftovers away so that Dan wouldn’t come in and finish of my delicious lunch for the next day. Lucky for me, he only looks at the pictures on my blog so he will never know, Ha! The wrap was pretty easy for me, you marinate the tempeh for an hour and then bake it for almost an hour and finish off with avocado, carrot, and lettuce. I loved the wrap and I will make it again for sure. I especially enjoyed the tempeh which came out crispy and well flavored. I think it would even be good to someone that hadn’t found a recipe yet that they liked for tempeh. Next time I will add more toppings and put it in a bigger wrap like you are supposed to, I usually only have taco sized tortillas normally and that’s what I used last night. I’m excited to try the magical raw tacos next, hopefully they will make me magically like to eat healthier food!
Every post this month for Veganmofo will be celebrating the recipes in the zine Sunny Days in Texas, a fundraiser cookzine to help Sunny Day Farms Animal Sanctuary.
