Our special Forks Over Knives event went very well today!


Our special Forks Over Knives event in Bend went very well today! Which is great, considering the amount of time we put into preparing for it. It was a long day (1 p.m. – 10 p.m.), but well worth it. My step-kids were an invaluable help until after the 2nd showing started (I think they’re wore out though, because everyone was in bed by the time I got home, even the night owls). We had the biggest near-capacity crowd at 90 people for the 3 p.m., and then a respectful 40+ for the 7 p.m. And both sessions had curious and thoughtful people contributing to the discussion afterwards.

I’m both wound up and tired, and have just had to decompress by myself for a few hours. I got some bread dough going for tomorrow, read a bit, hung out with the animals a little, and now am going to go chill out more with Out of Oz.

Engine 2 Diet quintuple-batch brownie-making-marathon for Forks Over Knives in Bend

Engine 2 Brownies

The girls and I just finished up an Engine 2 Diet quintuple-batch brownie-making-marathon for our Forks Over Knives event in Bend tomorrow. We made over 150 mini brownies (and only managed to consume a few along the way). 

These brownies always turn out so good.

Finally, Forks Over Knives!


I finally got to watch Forks Over Knives! The DVD recently arrived and a friend passed it on to me this evening. So I watched it while cooking up a good plant-based meal, doing the dishes, and making up a new batch of bread dough. It was pretty much like I expected. Not a lot of new information for me, but well put together and could be transformative for somebody new to the info. I’d like to buy a copy for each of my extended family members, but I doubt they’d be receptive. Looking forward to the special features.
