secret_fly: Work

Hello all!

I am new here...25 years old, vegetarian for 12 years now.  (Quick intro's rock)

Long story short; I work long hours.  I don't usually have time to make a meal before I go to bed at night to return back to work the next morning.

What are some of your quick fixes for lunches/meals?

letsmakebelieve: culinary schools/ice cream parlor

I have a couple questions...

i'm sure this has been asked before, but does anyone know of a culinary arts program or a culinary school that specifically deals with vegetarian or vegan menues only? in Portland or the surrounding area, including washington?

I'm planning on becomming a vegan pastry chef and wanted to know if I had to go through a regular culinary school and take specific vegan classes from an outside organization at a later date or if i should just say fuck it and just open up my own shop and wing it with recipes that I've mastered over months and months of practice and trials & tribulations...

also, anyone hear interested in a vegan ice cream parlor?

my first question is becuase I'm planning on opening a vegan sweets/ice cream parlor after i learn a little bit more about the specifics or substitution. People have told me that i wouldn't have to go to school to open up my own shop, but I just feel like it would just make the quality of the shop that much better. if I can't find schooling for this, I'll still open the shop. i was just wondering if any of you would be interested in something like that.

sweet loafs, cakes, pies, and candies- with a main focus on ice cream- either pre-made or with a patron choice of on the spot mixed in ingredients (cold stone style).

whatcha think?

what would you want to see sold in a place like this?

for any veggie parents out there, the current (april 2006) issue of Metro Parent has an article on veg*an families and kids. nothing too exciting, but it's definitely nice to see an article that portrays kids and veg-ism in a positive light!

I've heard good things about Organics to You, but I'm also wondering if anyone has tried out Pioneer Organics. Or are there even more options I don't know of? With my leg injury and lack of a vehicle, my parents are talking about getting us started on a produce delivery program....Any advice on the subject would be great. :)

(And if it helps, I'm in Tualatin.)

jenhowell: Valentine's Day Card-Making Party: This Saturday 12-5 or whenever

Hello, if you are reading this, you're invited to my annual Valentine's Day Card-Making Party, this Saturday from 12-5 (or whenever, we'll see how much fun everyone's having, etc.)

For those of you who say, "Hey, Valentine's Day sucks; why should I come to your stupid party?", I say:

Because each time I've had this party, it's been a celebration of friendship, creativity and all the types of love we can have for each other, not just the romantic kind. And because you get to dig into my collage bins of doom and find all the naughty pictures and use lots of glitter! Plus, there often happen to be vegan cookies* lying around.

This year I will also be offering a couple prizes for the best Valentine's produced at the party. And maybe we'll watch a movie or two, play some music or some of our home-made Apples to Apples game. I will also be getting rid of some crazy old women's magazines to whomever wants them.

Anyway, if you like meeting new people (I met my last roommate at last year's party), making cards or producing art of any sort, eating cookies and possibly an array of other snacks, and having a very fun, low-key sort of time, do come and feel free to bring a friend.

For my address in inner SE near the People's Food Co-Op and phone and to R.S.V.P., please write me at jenhowell77@gmail.com.

You can also feel free to bring a friend (or two) as long as you R.S.V.P. Bringing a snack or beverage with you to share is also appreciated, vegan snacks preferred but not necessary.

Thanks! I know it can be strange going to a person's party you don't know, but, like I said, I met my roommate at last year's party. Who knows who you might meet!


*non-vegans also encouraged to attend and bring whatever cookies they want. But trust me, these vegan cookies will be plenty tasty

joyful_grrrl: PDX to Southern California MONDAY!!!

my gf and i are driving to southern california early on monday morning. we're looking for someone who would be interested in carpooling with us. preferably, someone with a driver's license and insurance who could do some of the driving! my car is a compact, meaning the gas contribution will be cheap-o! also good to know: the car is a stick shift. we don't smoke inside of it. it's a late-model echo coupe, in excellent condition (won't break down). but if it does, i have AAA. all food-stops wil be as vegetarian-friendly as possible, since we're both vegetarians. we;re also bringing snacks. we're queer, so if you're not homo-friendly, don't reply.
