Yesterday I made six packed lunches for some vegans who were at a meeting at the Auckland SPCA. The regular caterer couldn't provide any vegan food, and I was thrilled to be able to help out.
The sushi contains pickled ginger, kumara (sweet potato) baked in a tomato/chilli/liquid smoke marinade, and crunchy red capsicum.
The pita pockets are filled with cashew cheese spread and lotsa salad veges.
Apparently there were a few omnivores eyeing the vegan goodies enviously...!
If we hadn't just returned from camping the day before, I would have done a big tray of mini vegan cupcakes for everybody, but there just wasn't time.
Also yesterday, Mack and I met up with my cousin Helen and her daughter Alex, and Helen's cousin Mark and his son Joe, at the Parnell pools. The kids swam and swam and swam, and the adults swam and spa-ed and talked. And then we played mini golf!
