Using fresh vegetables from the farmer’s market, I made a simple and quick stir-fry over cooked quinoa and added Fieldcrest sausage.
Had a quick day trip to Milwaukee, Wisconsin on Saturday using our new i-Go membership. It was on our list to check out Comet Cafe and finally got the chance to cross it off our list. Great food options for both vegan and non-vegans. It was a busy brunch day, but the line to get seated went by quick as well as their homemade cupcakes. I enjoyed their very filling vegan scramble topped with Fieldcrest sausage in gravy and rye toast. Their drinks looked pretty tasty as well. I got sucked in and ordered their special tree-tini drink to end the meal. For every tree-tini ordered, they plant a tree in India - not bad for a enjoying a cocktail and brunch.
Holy Gelato is a cute gelato shop in Inner Sunset area of San Francisco. The shop is filled with old school lunch boxes and open late. It not only has yummy gelato, but so many vegan gelato flavors to try!
I went out to lunch with a friend who had a craving for Vietnamese while in San Francisco at Hai Ky Mi Gia. They are known for their braised duck leg and noodles. Fortunately they were nice and made me a veg-friendly option of rice noodles with pickled carrots, daikon and cucumbers, topped with bean sprouts which turned out to be pretty tasty. They are also known for their yummy homemade warm soy milk.

Lovely video produced by Chipotle about our food system today and how we should back to the basics. The song “Scientist” is song by Willie Nelson, which you can purchase on iTunes and the proceeds will benefit The Chipotle Cultivate Foundation.
Pepples Donut’s is one of my favorite treats in San Francisco. All their donuts are 100% organic and vegan ingredients from their flour, fruit glazes and to their cocoa. It was hard to stay away from the Ferry Building and now that I’m gone, I wish they were in Chicago!

From the Union of Concerned Scientists: The mammoth Farm Bill—voted on every five years—determines what food farmers will grow and what practices they will employ. The next Farm Bill is already taking shape in Washington and big agribusiness is wasting no time in lobbying for outdated and polluting agricultural practices.
Don’t let your food choices be determined by agribusiness corporations—Congress needs to hear from you today!
Recent reports by the Union of Concerned Scientists demonstrate how we can transition to modern, science-based agricultural practices that safeguard our health and protect the foundations of our food supply—such as healthy soil and fresh water—while reducing global warming emissions. Tell Congress that the status quo may be working for agribusiness fat cats, but it is not in the interests of farmers, the environment, or your family’s health!

Our friend Cheryl is awesome at making homemade goodies, especially syrups and preserves. She made some homemade cherry preserves over the summer and we were lucky to get our very own jar. She decided to make them as natural as possible without pectin. It’s hard to go back to any other kind of jam after having these delicious preserves. Homemade almost always taste better. Here’s to enjoying a nice morning breakfast with them on top oatmeal.

A small local ice cream maker is looking to keep her company small and local and needs your help. Pledge to help Nice Cream stay true to who they are and not have to live up to the big manufacturer’s standards.
My first time having Japanese Curry was at JapaCurry Food Truck part of Off the Grid at Fort Mason on Friday night in San Francisco. The curry sauce was unlike any I’ve had and definitely made the dish. The curry was served with a pumpkin croquette and pickled ginger over rice. Overall a pretty tasty dish..one of many I ate with so many food trucks to choose from!
