Hey, this is my ode to all things awesome. They mostly will be in San Francisco, because I have a job that keeps me here. I love food, booze, and odd things. I am ambivalent about serial commas. But this is about trying new things so let's get moving on that to-do list...
So you found me. This my little blog, which is concerned with all the wonderful things you can eat, drink and do in life.

Eating Vegan, Specifically Vegan Ceviche
Work has been nuts. I'm at a small start-up that our CEO likes to say isn't a start-up. I say, it's a start-up until money isn't an issue and I can fake take out clients, meaning my friends, for lunch. So work is busy and I am chubby. But only one of those I can change. I re-read a part of Eat to Live and realized I needed more veganism in my life. So off I go eating more raw and vegan delights—many of which just aren't good enough to post about. That is until I tried vegan ceviche. This recipe is from Whole Foods and is really delicious. Whole Fooders say to put it over rice, but I ate mine in lettuce cups and it was tasty. If you like heat I would do a pepper and a half. Also most tofu packages are 14 ounces. Really? You want us to use 2 packages and then a smidge of another? Lame. I used one and threw in cilantro like it was my job since i like it so much. I didn't seed the tomatoes very well which made mine very saucy. I also gave an f-u to parchment paper as I didn't have any. The pan cleans up fine. I did overcook and it made my tofu even crispier which was nice. Bottom Line Unless you got tofu for days just use two packages and call it one [day]. Add more cilantro or jalapeno if you're not a pansy. Eat with lettuce cups for a nearly raw experience and to make you feel healthy, wealthy and wise.
