Give thanks . . . for vegan cinnamon rolls

Ok, well, there’s so much more I’m thankful for: my family, my health, my friends, my house, and  . . . after this morning’s, brunch . . . our treadmill.

It was just the three of us today and so The Husband made his favorite Hash Brown Casserole and I made vegan cinnamon rolls—recipe from Mike and Dan at The Gay Vegans. What a FABULOUS recipe!! I got a lovely baker’s dozen and they were so simple to make and absolutely delicious. This will be my go-to cinnamon roll recipe for future brunches to come.

I’m so thankful for all of my readers and I wish everyone a happy Thanksgiving!

Fort Vegan & The Sustainable Living Fair

(That’s the Seventh-Grader helping set up)

I had a fantastic time at the Sustainable Living Fair here in Fort Collins over the weekend. I volunteered with Fort Vegan, a local meetup. We handed out information and vegan samples, thanks to VegFund. I got an opportunity to meet lots of great people including Mike and Dan of Cruelty-Free World. They are a wonderful couple! They sell vegan products and cookbooks and donate 100% of the profits to animal and human rights organizations. How noble/admirable/kind/awesome/selfless is that?

I made a contribution by purchasing Color Me Vegan and the Seventh-Grader bought a vegan wallet.If you haven’t already, visit Mike and Dan at The Gay Vegans.

In addition to nearly 200 exhibitors, the fair boasted several large areas dedicated to renewable energy, natural heath, green building, green living, and local produce. I also had the pleasure of volunteering with fellow Fort Vegan member, Sara Jelley, who is a personal trainer and recently began her own business, Curvy Fitness. If you are in the area, hate the gym, and want a practical, holistic approach to fitness, contact Sara on her site—she’s a sweetheart!
