Bethlehem VegFest, Vegan Treats, and More

Hi everyone! Bethlehem VegFest took place on July 14; I was totally out of the loop and only found out the night before. With such late notice and plans later that day, I figured I’d skip this year, but Zach made sure we got there on Saturday for a bit. For lunch, I had the buffalo chick’n mac & cheese from Freakin’ Vegan – there was a long line but it was definitely worth the wait – and Zach had a grilled cheese & pineapple guava lemonade. 



Then we picked up some desserts at Vegan Treats; I got the triple berry cheesecake and Zach chose the s’mores cheesecake. 



In other news, I harvested my first ears of corn on Sunday!


And then on Wednesday, after we made a delicious batch of lemon spinach pasta, my sister Alena gave me the grand tour of the new Aldi near her, so of course I grabbed some fun vegan stuff – hashbrowns, two types of meatballs, and chicken patties. 



I also sketched some more fruit…

And here's Cringer; she takes the most dramatic cat naps... 



Peace. :)

    1. Thanks, Hannah; Cringer is quite the sweetie! We took her in (along with her sister Daisy) on September 19, 2015; it was originally just a fostering situation, but the two of them quickly became a part of our family! :D

    1. Thanks, Sarah; the s'mores cheesecake was quite impressive! Glad you've been enjoying the fruit sketches! I'm happy I was able to get pictures of Cringer's cuteness without waking her up! :)

  4. Some great eats from the Vegfest. Your Aldi products look good too - I hope we get some of them here in the UK.

    1. So far from this Aldi haul I've tried the chickenless patties and the hashbrowns, and I've enjoyed them both! :)

  5. I love those "meat"balls from Aldi! A little cheaper than Trader Joe's, just as yummy. They also have almond milk for just $1.98

    1. I still need to try the meatballs, but I am looking forward to their deliciousness. And nice about the almond milk; I'll have to look out for that! :)
