What Can A #Vegan Eat? #Food !

Our #2 Daughter is almost-a-vegan. She’ll eat eggs from her own chickens, because she knows they’re spoiled rotten. šŸ˜‰ She’ll eat dairy from small farms which will let you come visit the cows. But mostly, she’s vegan.

Because of her influence, Charlie and I are mostly vegan, as well, although we aren’t as principled as she is, and I’m less principled than Charlie. SHUT UP! I MEAN ABOUT VEGANISM. I’M PLENTY PRINCIPLED. I AM, SO!

ANYWAY, for those who feel sorry for vegans and think poor old vegans have nothing they can eat, here is a picture of one of our meals.

I particularly enjoyed the beet greens, because I bought the beets and the greens came with them as a bonus. They’re delicious and beautiful, with the red and green of them.

If you want to see some real fancy vegan vittles, visit Vegans Eat Pencil Shavings. You’ll wonder why you bother with boring old meat.

I’m posting today at Fatal Foodies on the subject of my new favorite snack, Crusty Charlie.

ALSO, please allow me to remind you that I’ll be at Fandom Fest in Louisville this weekend (July 26-28, 2013) as part of the Literary Track. My panels are:

Friday 4pm Dynamic Dialogue
Friday 5:30pm Effective Social Media
Friday 7:00pm Writers Guide to Drinking
Saturday 2:30pm Genre Fiction as an Effective Aid for Those With Disabilities
Saturday 4:00pm Fan Fiction

A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: A character visits a farm to see how the cows are doing.



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    How can you beat Crusty Charlie as a name for ANYTHING? Much less a tasty snack. Oh, you crazy almost-vegans!
