Enjoy your new year!

East Coast trip 135

Chocolate Mint Bar from Vegan Treats.

This was given to me for free by a kind worker at Atlas Cafe in NYC -
I tried to order vegan soft serve and they were out, and (since I'm apparently blatantly a tourist), he told me he was sorry, and knows that it's disappointing to go some place, expecting something, and it being out.
I decided on this gorgeously toxic green mint bar as a back up, and since he said it was small, he gave it to me for free. How sweet it is.

Oh yes - Happy New Year's! I'm off soon to prep and clean for a mini party..

on the menu so far:

Field Roast white truffel pate stuffed mushrooms (I've had leftover pate in the freezer)
Eggplant caviar (The Artful Vegan) and baguette
Sesame buns
Cheezy garlic & tempeh bacon baked potato skins
Tamari roasted chickpeas
Miso grilled tofu & red curry peanut sauce (the only thing I've yet to make)
Baked gyozas
