Yesterday I got the train with a group of folk from Manchester Vegan Society over to Lancaster to the West Lancashire Vegan Fayre. It was a really successful event and the Friends Meeting House where it was held was totally rammed so much so that I didn't even manage to get round the room with the free food samples and the cafe selling vegan fish n chips! I did go to a really interesting talk about vegan organic farming by Jenny Griggs of Fir Tree Community Growers, a care farm who produce organic veg boxes where lots of the volunteers are disabled people. I treated myself to a few things from the stalls I did get to - Kale chips with sunflower and tahini, lovely handmade soap and bath bombs packed with aromatherapy oils from Brackencraft, Black Cherry Hurraw lip balm and a totally amazing Reese's Peanut Butter cupcake from Vicki's Vegan Bakery.
Today I'm taking it easy catching up on a bit of stuff on iPlayer and doing some drawing. To set me up for the day lunch was a cup of cinammon coffee and a sausage butty. I bought some of these Sainsbury's own make sausages the other day which unusually for an own brand are vegan as well as vegetarian. I like them on soft white bread with tomato sauce, dijon mustard, chutney, cherry plum tomatoes and rocket. How do you make yours?
