  1. In a rush, I use Newman's Own Balsamic & Vinegarette dressing. It's very good. I also make a good sauce with orange juice concentrate (don't dilute with water!) & soy sauce -- probably about 1/4 cup soy sauce mixed with a tablespoon or so of the oj concentrate.


    BTW, if you add rice, chill it first. That one trick has made the biggest difference in my stir fry!

  2. The Dill Pickle Chip Dip in How It All Vegan is fantastic with potato chips! It is tofu based. I suggest making it without the maple syrup.


    The Lay's Baked chips are not too bad, especially if you are going to dip but I prefer to have chips as a treat so when I do eat them I go for the locally made full fat chips. They may be full fat, but they have way fewer ingredients than the baked Lay's.!

  3. Wonder of wonders! A fabulouso used book store recently opened near where I live. They have a great selection of used books & a few new titles, too. They have enough veg cookbooks to have a three shelf section. I'm going there again tomorrow & this time I have some books to trade in.


    Summer reading:


    The People's Business: Controlling Corporations and Restoring Democracy

    by Drutman & Cray

    > The authors are both affiliated with the Citzen Works Corporate Reform Commission. (www.citizenworks.org) The book discusses the runaway power of corporations & ways We the People can reign in these behemoths. It is an excellent companion book to Thom Hartmann's "Unequal Protection" & David Korten's "When Corporations Rule the World."


    It Can't Happen Here

    by Sinclair Lewis

    > This fictional story was published in 1935. It is about the rise of a President who becomes a dictator to save the nation from welfare cheats, sex, crime & a liberal press. The parallels between the story & what is happening now are interesting. It has been almost a sci-fi type of read.


    The Gate to Women's Country

    by Sheri Tepper

    > A sci-fi tale about women & men in a sort of post-apocalyptic world. This story is a bit more of an uplifting read than "The Handmaid's Tale" which I also recently re-read.


    The Demon-Haunted World

    by Carl Sagan

    > Everyone should read this book.


    SQL Queries for Mere Mortals

    by Hernandez & Viescas

    > Work related, but good.

  4. One of my favorite magazines regarding sustainability has only recently (past year) addressed a plant based diet as a good step to become sustainable.


    I'm not sure even the green movement will convince people to go veg. I think economics may be the only way. When we stop subsidizing these industries, when we hold them accountable for the environmental messes they create, when people start paying the true cost of meat, then maybe they will give it up, but even then they will give it up kicking & screaming.

  5. I say we open a vegan hooters with Robert and I in skimpy clothes as a protest to the regular hooters...surely we'll need more than two waiters so if anyone else wants to jump in go ahead



    I am anxiously waiting to see if Jonathan is going to 'jump in' to be a vegan hooter.
