I am still laughing over the Justin Timberlake segment from SNL. I mean really, who thought of him getting dressed up as a boring old block of tofu and doing his boom box thing with the sausage guy?? I find myself wondering who’s agenda that was, because clearly there was a message and they were genius to end it with a vegan (milk) shake, Harlem Shake style. It left me thinking how tofu is probably the food people think of when they think of veganism. There is no doubt it is a staple in MY diet, but there are many who live on plant-based diets that never touch the stuff. And there are so many foods that would better serve us as a “logo” food. I am thinking that this cookie, compliments of Andrea Munk, would make a much sexier, much more appealing one….
The inception cookie…named for the movie, it’s a dream inside a dream. Chocolate chip cookie with an Oreo in the middle. Served warm it IS a dream within a dream.
So for those who feel we herbivores are deprived, think again! On this Vegan Thursday, hoping you will try just one new plant-based option….or as Timberlake says “bring it on down to Veganville.”
Speaking of sweets, happy birthday to a very, very sweet Jolene! What a great treat it was to get to spend time with her and get to know her. It’s easy for Mitch and I to understand how Derek dove in to this new chapter in his life. Have a beautiful day, Jolene Jolene.
In case you missed the SNL segment on tv or this blog, here it is one more time….
