Vegan Mofo Day 5 - Waffles
Does anyone talk about food as much as vegans? Does anyone anticipate food as much as vegans? I know there are a lot of foodies out there, but vegans are the only ones I know that constantly drool over future meals, tell others about meals or new food products like they are a hot new band, and talk about past and future meals while eating current meals. We get so excited! With good reason I think, because vegan food is amazing.
Recently my friend Martha was in town for a few days. We headed up to Portland for brunch one morning at Off the Griddle. This is one of my favorite brunch places - I haven't eaten there for dinner yet. They have these awesome blue corn waffles. Their menu is mostly vegan and all vegetarian.
Martha and I arrive about an hour after opening and to our horror there is a wait! Of course it's brunch and we should have expected that. I knew it would be worth the wait. So we found a shady spot to wait outside for about 30-40 minutes and finally get seated. I want to order everything on the menu!
|Yep, just like that Ernie.|
Finally when we are about to lose it and start eating other people's food or flipping tables over (just kidding!), our food arrives! Crisis averted! It wasn't that long of a wait, but we were just so excited. nomnom!

After brunch we rushed to Newberg to go to Wildwood Farm Sanctuary's Barnyard Bingo Fundraiser. I didn't take many pictures, but this was my second time at this fun event. The animals wander around while we play bingo and pretty much everyone wins! Especially the animals since it's a fundraiser for their upkeep!
V-Dog vegan dog food was there and I picked up a treat sampler and some snazzy bandanas for the girls! Don't they look stylish?

Do you talk about food constantly? Do you describe other meals while eating a current meal? Or is it just me and my vegan friends? Do we have a problem? Is there a support group? If so, what are they serving at the meetings? :)
