Breakfast with Amey & Musty!!!

I was happy to learn that Amey, of Vegan Eats & Treats would be in town for a wedding, and that our schedules meshed for a breakfast. Amey is the hip-chic who was selected to attend the VegNews Roundtable. (What an honor!) And she's the hostess who throws the ultimate Indian Food Party, and Earth Day Feast.
Yes, I was very excited to meet her, and, oddly, at the same time, I felt like I already knew her. When we saw each other at the door, we hugged right away!


and a little nervous, too. After all, you've seen the fabulous food she cooks. Here's a favorite or two of mine...
What would I serve for breakfast at 8:30 a.m.? The way our mornings are, I'd have to keep it simple and prepare most the day before.
I know many of you love Amey through her blog, and let me tell you, she is even more warm, sincere, & friendly in person. Jolie knows where it's at, and stayed right by Amey's side the whole time.


On the left, you see fresh blackberries & blueberries from The Berry Ranch, French Vanilla Almond granola, with scoops of Soy Delicious Vanilla.
Next is VeganYumYum's 'Lavender Shortbread' served with lavender jelly. Thanks, Jody, for suggesting this after seeing my lavender post.
Liv (aka "Cookie Monster") has her paw on a 'Chocolate Mint Melties' from The Everyday Dish DVD. The platter has 'Creamy Hummus' from Vive, lettuce, tomatoes, sliced beets, pickles & olives for the pita bread. Nothing fancy. The real "Vegan Treat" was smiling across the table at me! It was such a pleasure to meet you both! Thanks for coming over! :)

Hoorah!
I just blogged about it too! How fun! I just came over to get a couple of links and found that you had put this up! I love the picture of Olivia grabbing that cookie - a moment of sweet victory!

That was by far the best meal of our whole trip - lovingly made, delicious, a little bit naughty and a little bit nutritious... and wonderful company!

love to you all!

Julie said...

How exciting!! Looks like good food and good company :]

Jackie said...

Thanks for the visit.

Great links. The lavender shortbread sounds wonderful. I must give it a try the next time I bake.

Catherine said...

Lavender shortbread . . . yummmmm!

Looks like a "tasty delicious" breakfast!

P.S. Way to go on speaking out at that forum. I'm still amazed that people neglect to even mention vegetarianism/veganism as powerful tools in combating global warming. It frustrates me, because it's so easy! People seem to think that we NEED meat . . . several of my coworkers have actually expressed concern over my health because I don't eat meat. (I.e., "you need some protein!") My comments to them are as follows: "I'm never, ever sick," and, "Do I look like I'm wasting away?" :) Rock on, sister!

You are a wonderful hostess, Vicki. What an outstanding breakfast feast you prepared. The pictures are great and I know you all had a great time together.

KleoPatra said...

Vicki, how great this post was to read! Amey is one lucky lady to get to spend time with you and your awesome fam. Looks like a great time was had by all!!

Love the top photo of the two of you in the kitchen. The warmth radiates from both of you. Warmer than the sand in PB...

I'm so jealous of you meeting with all these fellow bloggers. It sounds like you guys definitely had a great time and enjoyed each others company. And what a fun feast you breakfasted on!

Now I just have to find some excuse to be in Idaho... and at your door... although I might have trouble leaving your adorable family.

How fun to meet Amey. It is so cool how when we meet our fellow bloggers in person it is like we have known them all along. When Kleo and I got together, we hugged and if just felt like we were long lost friends. So cool! Its all that vegan love going around.

Breakfast is a hit. I might have to take a trip to Idaho. By the way I love Idaho. When my dear hubby and I talked of moving I chose Idaho and he likes Provo, Utah. I am sure we will stay her now that our daughter is getting married and I want to be close to grandchildren.
