The Veg Fest was lots of fun, but also a bit disappointing. I thought it would be all food samples! Instead it was more information booths and food for sale. Still had some good bites to eat and fun in the sun.
First thing’s first: feed us!
In the food area, there were about 10-15 tents of mostly ethic foods. I was excited to see Ethiopian, Greek and African – some of my favorites!
Karen got Ethiopian (and shared a bite). It’s too bad this restaurant traveled in from Harrisburg because I’d love to go eat there and it’s a bit far.
I ended up with two plates.
One with lots of salad and a side of black quinoa and a vegan chocolate mousse from Whole Foods that only THREE DOLLARS! SCORE for the healthy eaters!!
And a very expensive plate of grape leaves and hummus + pita that I split with Matt.
From the African booth, Matt got some Fried Bean Balls and Jerk Veggies, both were good and I had a serving of each on my salad.
Water from home!! Savings!!
The sun was GRUELING in 91* heat. But I hear tomorrow’s gonna be a cold one!
There were lots of cute poochies. We are not responsible enough to get a pet..yet.
Karen enjoyed some muzak
While I tried to look nonchalant gathering up samples!
Sa-WEET! Nature’s Path had all kinds of goodies
These will surely help my cold cereal morning craving! I was considering buying a cereal at Whole Foods today but I talked myself out of it because oats are so cheap and we always have bread. Now I have these!
Tried a few tofus and alternative meats. Loved the Thai Tofu
The fake meats weren’t bad, but they weren’t really good either. Fake meat does not equal real food.
Lastly, we split a popsicle from Pantheon that we’ve been wanting to try for ages! These are always at the farmer’s market, but I never want one at 9AM!
After the festival, we went to the library. I read Real Simple while Matt got a library card and checked out a book on Virginia history! Nerd alert!!
Now, we chillax. Make iced tea. Bake brownies for a horse race we’re attending tomorrow. And lastly, dinner.
