Vegan MoFo Day 28 - Sandwich Joy

Vegan MoFo Day 28 - Sandwich Joy

Every time I feel like it's been an extra trying time in American politics over the last couple of years, it does a really good job of outdoing itself. This week has been no exception. It's a very challenging time to be a woman, a sexual assault survivor, a person of color, or even just a person with basic decency and compassion. I hope you are doing whatever you need to do to take care of yourself right now. 

Being exhausted and emotionally drained, I decided to have a simple dinner last night. A sandwich with one of those pretzel buns I bought recently at Food Fight. I am so happy these aren't super salty like the ones I tried a couple years ago. 

A good sandwich is a comfort. We grew up eating them. They are portable and can feed us on our travels, while hiking, kayaking or such. And a well crafted sandwich is delicious. 

I am a big fan of Tofurky vegan deli slices. Hickory smoked, original, peppercorn - I like them all! Tofurky is actually made in Oregon not far from Portland. They are a great company and I see a lot of their donated items and coupons at events. They also sponsor an annual Tofurky Trot fundraiser in Portland on Thanksgiving. This year's recipients are: Northwest VEG, Wildwood Farm Sanctuary, Out to Pasture Sanctuary, Lighthouse Farm Sanctuary, and Green Acres Farm Sanctuary. I volunteered last year and it was fun! I think I might sign up to walk/wog it this year. Looks like there is also one in LA the Saturday after Tofurky Day. 

Did you notice the Tofurky shortage last summer? That's because of the wildfires that were near the factory. The shelves got pretty bare around here for a bit. 

Pesto Veganaise, hickory slices, baby greens, pretzel bun. 
Not far from the Tofurky factory is Multnomah Falls which is one of (or the?) most famous falls in Oregon. Maybe because it's so accessible? You can actually see it from the parking lot if you aren't up for walking/hiking. The fires last year came very close to the falls (basically fires were right at the falls) and the historic building there, but the firefighters managed to keep this landmark safe. Thank you, firefighters!
