VeganMoFo: Birthdays

Birthday Cake

August means a lot of birthday parties and celebrations in my family. The last week of August brings 3 family members birthdays! Its hectic but fun and we get to enjoy lots of cake and good food! The cake above was from Sweet Avenue Bakeshop in Rutherford, NJ for a surprise birthday party for me thrown by my family. I had absolutely no idea it was happening. It was a true surprise and I still don’t know how it happened without me knowing. I tend to know everything that is going on or will at least pick up some hints. 1 month later and I still find myself thinking “How?”. 

I can't wait to dig into @sotastyvegan 's BLT Kale Salad plus some of the other treats I bought from her stand at the Farmers Market in Montclair today.

BLT Kale Salad

I like to celebrate my birthday with food. In honesty I like to celebrate just general life with food but on birthday’s I’ll go the extra mile like heading up to the new Tuesday Farmers Market in Montclair, NJ where I visit Sally Owen’s SO Tasty Vegan stand where she sells some of the most delicious food including the BLT Kale Salad above. I savored every bite because I didn’t want it to ever end.

Roasted Cauliflower and Chickpea Tacos

Since my birthday fell on a Tuesday the only option for dinner were Tacos! This is one of those rare times where I actually made something I’ve pinned on Pinterest.  This was the second time I’ve made this recipe by Two Peas and Their Pod. Its a recipe that made me angry that I didn’t come up with it myself! It is so easy to make. The first time I made it for friends of ours and they loved it so much they ended up making it for themselves a few time after. I like serving these with a side of sauteed kale. Some people like to add to the kale to the tacos.
