Goodies for Good

Well, today was exhausting! The bake sale organized by Vegan Omaha raised over $3,000 for Japan! Isn’t that incredible? At the end of the day, the only thing left was one little paper cup filled with granola. One guy even ate crumbs off a cookie sheet! Here are some highlights:

After the bake sale a group of us went to Kurry Xpress for Indian food. It was delicious!

Tomorrow the pie making continues and eventually Portland beckons. I am going to miss Omaha!

3, 2, 1… Sushi!

Yesterday was spent baking heaps and heaps of cookies, brownies, cake, and cinnamon rolls for Vegan Omaha’s bake sale for Japan: Goodies for Good. The bake sale is this afternoon and I am so excited to see all the wonderful baked goods lined up on tables and ready to fill hungry tummies!

White Chocolate Chip Pecan Cookies and Blueberry White Chocolate Chip Cookies.

We also made regular chocolate chip cookies, double chocolate walnut cookies, oatmeal raisin cookies, ginger cookies, cookies-n-cream brownies, double chocolate gluten-free brownies, and coconut raisin cinnamon rolls!!

Isa and I made a massive mess in her kitchen that progressively worsened as the hours passed:

In between emptying bags of flour and sugar some delicious food was consumed:

Lunch = Veggie Sandwich w/ Side Salad from Daily Grub in Omaha, NE

This sandwich consisted of pepita spread, sauteed red pepper, roasted sweet potato and fresh avocado inside a toasted baguette. I really enjoyed this sandwich! The baguette was chewy and the fillings paired well with one another. I am thinking about recreating this when I get back to Portland so I can remember Omaha with fondness!

Inside the Daily Grub – clean and simple with a chalkboard menu.

Would you believe that up until last night I had never tried sushi? It’s true! Growing up as a picky eater is partly to blame, but it’s mostly because I thought it would be gross. Why did I wait so long?!!

It’s quite possible that a sushi addiction may have blossomed after devouring the above beauties!

Let’s hope that today’s bake sale raises a lot of money for Japan! Keep your fingers crossed please!
