Results of the Giveaway and Mother’s Day
Hello, hello, hello! Today I’m bringing you a double whammy of a post with not one but two happy little sections: 1. The results of the giveaway and 2. What my Mother’s Day looked like, complete with a recipe.
First things first, folks: I’m excited to announce the winner for Veganland’s First Ever Giveaway!
I got 2 comments by 2 superb bloggesses on the post saying that they “entered” the drawing, so I’ve decided to forego the formalities and award them each a prize instead of randomly picking between the two! Thank you so much Ann of An Unrefined Vegan and Toxic Vegan for your entries! Please comment on this post or send me an email giving me your mailing address and information so I can send along a crocheted cactus to each of you! Congratulations on your newly acquired non-plant plant and thank you so much for the support and for entering! I’m hoping to do another giveaway soon, so stay tuned and get ready to enter!
Second things second: my Mother’s Day!
The theme for the day was green! Nearly everything I put down my gullet was a gorgeous springy green color. It started off with the breakfast (not pictured, oops!) I made for Maddie of steam kale atop toast slathered with my homemade Garlic Aioli from Rawesomely Vegan. We munched then she scurried off to work, leaving me with a day to myself at our cozy little rabbit hole to cook, write, and create. As Maddie said I got to have the perfect Mother’s Day! The kids even surprised me in bed this morning with lots of purrs and kisses.
For lunch, I had a Green Goddess sandwich with local cucumber and lettuce atop rich grainy bread slathered with more homemade aioli:
What a simple and elegant sandwich! (see below for recipe!)
For snack, I had some roasted red pepper hummus and sugar snap peas:
Then later a glass of delicious green juice:
(and a banana, no photo needed)
I made Maddie a Mother’s Day dinner of sloppy joes, raw slaw from Rawesomely Vegan and a simple quinoa salad:
Served on gluten free bread with a drizzle of garlic cracked peppercorn dressing that I made the day before. Simply divine.
Dessert was on Maddie:
A cookies and cream cupcake from my kitties! (They also got me a 6 pack from a small brewery and a cactus!) The coconut milk ice cream was from me, and the sauce atop it was a chocolate mint sauce my mom made for us.
And now, as promised, the recipe for the Goddess Sandwich. It’s so simple and so delightful it’ll have you a believer for sure.
2 slices hearty grain bread
your favorite vegannaise spread (I recommend getting Rawesomely Vegan and making the aioli!)
5-7 slices cucumber
1 lettuce leaf
salt and pepper to taste
Smear the vegannaise on your bread slices, then top with cucumbers and salt and pepper. Add a lettuce leaf and feast! I ate 2 of these little sammies they were so good! Enjoy!
Hope your Mother’s Day was just as rad! Bisous!
