Vegan MoFo Day 16 - Sin Without the Guilt

Welcome to Vegan MoFo Sixteen 
- Day 16 of Vegan Month of Food 2011

Very early morning - up at 3:30 to get in a bit of 

before reporting to Reliant Stadium
at 5:30AM to help set up for the 
NFL's Houston Texans 

Running of the Bulls 
charity event.

The Bull is Toro, the Texans team mascot.
(Hey, as a Vegan, I'm also an animal rights activist; 
if it were anything to do with the spectacle in Spain, 
I'd be there, holding a sign, protesting the cruelty. 
So chill, my fellow abolitionists - it's all good.)

Later, joined friends at Pepper Tree Veggie Cuisine

for a Vegan Meetup brunch
in support of
Houston's vegan radio program
(Wednesday evenings, 10-11PM)
on Pacifica affiliate
KPFT, 90.1 FM
for the fall membership drive/fundraiser.
(tune in Donna Summer's
On The Radio)

A good time, 
fueled by the gastronomic delights of the buffet,
and the Vegan cookbooks, informational booklets, and stash,
was had by all.

On the way home, to watch the 
Texans take on the Ravens in Baltimore. 
Since my Texans sometimes play only three
instead of the regulation four
quarters of football, 
I stopped off at my favorite sweet spot
to secure some sustenance for watching the game.
Scored a  
Cinnamon Roll
 When it comes to vegan baked goodies
things really are bigger in Tejas!
I usually cut this beauty into quarters
to stretch its goodness out to four days of yum-ness.

Got a couple packs of cookies.
The cranberry orange are my favorite Sinfull cookies.
A girl's got to have chocolate chip, too.
 Sinfully delicious, cruelty-free
vegan baked goods.
Sin without the guilt!

Football fans know how my game day ended.
Texans played three quarters, 
Ravens played four,
 they won.
Disappointed, yes.
Still, I took comfort in the fact that 
the Ravens game changer was their  
RB, #27,
Mr. Raymell Maurice Rice,
my fellow Rutgers alum,
representing RU quite well.
(tune in, yes, you guessed it,
Rutgers State of Mind.)

Further comfort courtesy of my Sinfull Cinnamon Roll.
