An Evening with Robert Cheeke

This past weekend was another veggie meetup, once again at the excellent restaurant, Au Lac. Vegan bodybuilder Robert Cheeke was there to give a presentation on following your dreams and doing what makes you happy. I was initially skeptical about having a presenter, but his passion for life was refreshing, and by the end of his presentation I was glad he had made a stop on his speaking tour to talk to us (for free, no less).

The food was, of course excellent. I got a raw appetizer, the curry guacamole, which was unbelievable, and also the curry soy "chicken" dish. I also bought a DVD for my mom, who is really into bodybuilding (she's a bodybuilder herself....at age 56!).

The attendance was excellent, with about 40 people showing up. All in all, it was a really fun night!

Veggie Meetup

I've been enjoying my 2 weeks of vacation between the summer semester and fall semester. Last week, school started again, which was a bit of a bummer, but I have only this one class left, and then I'm finished.

I've been cooking lots, but nothing too adventurous. I've been busy with many projects. I do have a few items that I've been planning to make and share with you all. And I promise, its gonna be good!


So until I have anything more substantial to share, I thought I'd post a few pictures from last week's Veggie Meetup at the Fullerton Arboretum. It was very beautiful. I didn't take any pictures of the group, as I was a bit too shy, so I took lots of pictures of trees and birds and stuff.
