Hey guys! After a strong start out of the gate, I’ve been trying to catch up from my serious slacking last week at VeganMofo. We’re getting closer to crunch time for our move to Seattle, so I won’t even attempt to pull off any more full week mini themes. Friday is my last day of work, and next week is going to be pure craziness of trying to pack and store and donate all of our earthly possessions.
However, I did want to tell you about our lovely little brunch at Sweat Records in Miami two weekends ago! They do these vegan brunch events every few months, and I was really hoping to meet up with LJ again this time, but our timing was off, and we missed each other. Since we’re both moving out of state fairly soon, the next time we meetup will probably not be in Florida!
Here is the menu that was being offered and all the details…
Since we got there around 1, it was in full swing and absolutely packed. Consequently, we were too late for some of the selections. We we missed out on the muffins, and I was only able to scrape up a few of the Rosemary Potatoes that had been passed over for being stuck to the foil, which were incredible! She did have LOTS of Pumpkin French Toast left though, as well as the Apple, Fennel & Sage Seitan Sausage (Yum!), Fresh Fruit & Herb Salad, and Kale Salad with Cranberry Poppy Seed dressing. Needless to say I completely pigged out on kale. It was the first and last thing I hit. I even took some plain while she was making more salad, much to Francesca’s surprise. What can I say, I really dig kale!
On our way in I had noticed the vegan empanadas that Sweat Records is always tweeting about, and made sure to grab a few on our way out.
After reheating a couple of days later, I found out they had a wonderfully flaky cornmeal crust and tasty fillings that ended much too soon.
I also picked up some HURRAW! lip balm in two flavors to try out. I had been meaning to test drive these for awhile and to be honest, I’m not really sold on them so far. I still prefer my Urban Decay at this moment in time, but I may keep trying because they smell so good! Especially the root beer!!
Also for good measure, I give you a picture of Ganon.
(PS – This is my 11th Vegan Mofo post this month! Still doing fairly well, right?)
