Yes - please do, I am sure it will be busy so I will understand if you can't come down, but if you can just let me know.

My mom does the sweet potatoes with nuts, bakes 'em in the oven, they are gooooood.



I know I definitely can't make it- I have an all day event that day and its so ironic bc I had so many random invites for that day only, but I really wish I could. It sounds very yummy!

There used to be an awesome vegetarian place in Port Chester called Green Symphony but they closed and eventually moved to Long Island. NOT COOL!! I don't want to drive over an hour and a half to get dinner (though I have been tempted). I might as well just go into the city. We ate at Cafe Blossom last time I was home and it was awesome, and insanely expensive, but that's NY for you

Have you been to New Paltz lately? I hadn' tbeen in 13 years and was just there for a few days as a quick break before I start my job. SO many veggie friendly places. Veggie and vegan symbols are on menus like they are the most common things ever. Its not too far for you I dont think if you ever want a quick, cheap veggie friendly break. We had a great time! I am now a tofu convert

Dang= I was gonna sugget Blossom- this one on 9th (the orginial)- is it the same food:

Caravan of Dreams in the East Village is vegan and raw and I heard Candle Cafe and Candle 79 (same owners) on the UES are supposedly great- I haven't tried any of them though!



I can't believe in all of Westchester no veggie places!

I hate to be a pest, but you guys who expressed interest in coming -- if you could please let me know ASAP if you're still planning on being here and what you're planning on bringing I would really appreciate it. This is in under 2 wks, and BP and I are trying to plan on what we need to make/prep/buy and make sure we have enough seats/dishes/etc... for everyone, and it's really hard to do when the number of people coming ranges from 8 to about 25!!

I'm going to have to bail. I'm supposed to be in two different states that weekend and I'm pretty sure I'm on call for work as well. I think I'm going to crawl under a rock.



Hope you guys have fun!!

Looking over the menu, I could make either vegan baklava or some sort of dish with beans. November 8th at 3 pm should be okay for me.



Or... I could bring my (in)famous, jawbreaking, thick-as-a-brick, Weapon-Of-Mass-Destruction wholegrain bread... suitable for either sustenance or construction of a fallout shelter.

Sounds like that'll keep things moving and cure what ails ya! Homemade bread is the best

I could also make a simple garlic-free hummus with garbanzo beans, lemon or lime juice, and sesame tahini. That way, if the vegan baklava is an epic fail, I'll still have something good.

That sounds good too! I'm sure whatever you make will be well appreciated by all!

I bought some cranberries for cranberry sauce today, and stuff to make stuffing with, and some pecans and maple sugar for an apple pie with maple-pecan crunch topping. Also got stuff to make some brown sugar and cinnamon ice cream to go with the desserts! :P

It was great! I just have been too insanely busy to post the pics. I have a blog post saved but then blogger kept putting my pictures sideways and I got impatient and wandered off..



We're actually doing vegan TG round 2 tomorrow with a few of the albany locals cause none of us had plans.

I'm jealous. I'm doing the family thing. While I am armed with a vat of vegan stuffing and 2 pounds of celebration roast, I'm still dreading it.



Have fun both of you
