Mellow birthday

Mellow birthday ~

Slept in. Read a clever Matthew Hughes story about thieves and wizards from Fantasy & SciFi Mag, a disturbing Robert Reed sci-fi story from the Robots anthology, an enjoyable short story by Lucia Perillo (hey, I can give a different short story genre a chance), and then half of Paris, I Love You But You’re Bringing Me Down, by Rosecrans Baldwin. That one had me laughing out loud many times, a welcome diversion. Maybe it’s because I too was once that person working in a foreign country not being able to understand a damn thing anyone said for the first several weeks (I was in Madrid, he was in Paris. I was an au pair, he had an actual job—the comparison ends there).

This evening we managed to go out to dinner as a family to our favorite haunt with all the vegan options. Here’s a pic of my birthday dessert {Bonta Vegan Chocolate Sorbetto with Jem Chocolate’s warm Hazelnut Chocolate Sauce}. And when we got home, we had my favorite—carrot cake made by my step-daughter. It was incredible.

Collard Wrap from Angeline's Bakery

Collard Wrap from Angeline’s Bakery

I’ve been thinking about this fantastic raw collard wrap from Angeline’s Bakery for days now—I may need to try to recreate it this weekend. Apparently the wraps are so popular that they have a hard time keeping up with the demand. The ingredients include:

  • Large, tender collard leaf wrap (blanched?)
  • Cashew cheese
  • Finely grated carrots
  • Cabbage
  • Spinach
  • Lots of avocado
  • Kalamata olives
