Happy World Vegetarian Day! It is also the first day of Vegetarian Awareness Month.
With my work schedule and the fact that I am the sole care giver for the two little snots called dogs that I live with for about a week and a half, I didn't get to plan anything super special. I had leftover seitan for lunch and vegetable spring rolls from the freezer for dinner.
Normally on an occasion such as this I would bake a batch of brownies or cookies. I find great joy in finding any reason to bake, no matter how frivolous.
Today I had to settle for buying a couple of packages of cookies from Whole Foods to share with the office. I figured by sticking vegan-friendly sugar under my co-workers' noses, that gave me a perfectly legitimate reason to send out a mass email wishing a Happy World Vegetarian Day (and thereby making everyone aware of the day and the idea). Nobody complained and only 3 cookies were left by the time the work day was over. One of the supervisors even said she'd have a vegetarian dinner in honor of the day. Yippee!
