Another week, another seven days of veganmofo nom-ness! Let’s get right to it, shall we?

Hey Chicago peeps! Did you know that Ste Martaen now operates a vegan food truck with Soul Vegetarian? No? Well, now you do! Keep your eyes peeled for this vegan oasis, which will be roaming the streets evenings Tuesday through Friday and all day Saturday. They even take travel route requests! Get the details here.

Saturday Garbage Plate: Happy Halloweegan!

lol kaylee - b purty ether way

Kaylee, our 12-year-old rat terrier, dressed as a pumpkin several Halloweegans ago.
Her lol dog caption reads, “doggierella / turns 2 pumkin @ 12PM.”
Here, the photo’s title is really its subtitle: “lol kaylee – b purty ether way.”
Damn straight! My girl is bootyfull!

Those of you following us on Twitter may have noticed a break in our regular, pizza-related #noming. In honor of Halloweegan, we featured a variety of vegan Halloween recipes. And so, without further a-BOO!…

Just in time for Halloween: Pictures of Muslims Wearing Things. SCARY THINGS! Muahahaha!

Also, for those masochists and chronic procrastinators who have yet to buy their Halloween candy and/or costumes, hit up:

1) The Official Guide to Vegan Halloween Candy, by the sweet-teethed editors at VegNews; and

2) Take Back Halloween, “A costume guide for women with imagination.” (My top pick? Medusa. Definitely Medusa.)

This Monday, November 1st is World Vegan Day! It’s also Day Numero Uno of Vegan MoFo IV; be there or…don’t be. It’s up to you, honestly. But with 450+ bloggers from all over the world sharing their very bestest vegan recipes, stories, anecdotes and food not-porn, it’ll be your loss! You can follow my progress at www.easyvegan.info, if you’d like. I already have 16 posts finished, queued up and ready to go. No m’am, I am not playing around this year! Okay, I am. But hard! I’m playing haaaard! (In my best pirate impersonation.)

Don’t forget to vote (including YES on PROP B) Tuesday!!!

Last but not least, Kansas City vegan eatery Füd recently received a writeup in the Kansas City Star. Check it: At vegan eatery Füd, barbecue means jackfruit. Smileyface spoiler: it’s mostly positive, though the puzzlement over jackfruit seems…odd, somehow. (It’s a legitimate foodstuff, peoples. No one ever suggested that vegans consume it 24/7!)

Michael Jackson’s Thriller – what else!?!

Saturday Garbage Plate: we can has pizzas?

funny pictures of dogs with captions

Her head resting atop a pile of red cardboard takeout boxes, a doe-eyed dog gazes upward, presumably at the pizza delivery person or other Human in Charge. The lol caption reads, “ai jus wants to smell it a little.” Such a fibber, that one!


#vegan #noms on the twitters this week:

Also, have voted in Pizza Express’s Create Your Pizza Challenge yet? No? Well, what are you waiting for? Give the Pizza Levantina some electoral love, pretty please with Daiya on top?: www.pizzaexpress.com/create-your-pizza/vote/

And let’s close things out with a super-adorable song from Sesame Street: “I Love My Hair,” which encourages young girls of color to love their hair, as is, without the use of chemicals, dyes, straight irons, and other miscellaneous “beauty” aids (read: torture devices). You can read an interview with songwriter Joey Mazzarino, who wrote the song for his young daughter, at the Huffington Post.



For those who cannot view the video, here are the lyrics (via Clutch Magazine):

Don’t need a trip to the beauty shop,
’cause I love what I got on top.
It’s curly and it’s brown and it’s right up there!
You know what I love? That’s right, my hair!
I really love my hair.
I love my hair. I love my hair.
There’s nothing else that can compare with my hair.
I love my hair, so I must declare:
I really, really, really love my hair.
Wear a clippy or in a bow
Or let it sit in an afro
My hair looks good in a cornrow
It does so many things you know, that’s why I let it grow
I love my hair, I love my hair
I love it and I have to share
I love my hair, I love my hair!
I want to make the world aware I love my hair.
I wear it up. I wear down. I wear it twisted all around.
I wear braids and pigtails too.
I love all the things my hair can do.
In barrettes or flying free, ever perfect tresses you’ll see
My hair is part of me, an awesome part of me
I really love my hair!

Saturday Garbage Plate: Inaugural ed.!

Welcome to the inaugural edition of our newest feature here at the PPP Blog, the Saturday Garbage Plate! Those who follow us on Twitter are already hip to The Daily NOM, wherein we link to yummy vegan recipes – many (but not all; that would be nearly impossible, I’m afraid) involving pizza and pizza-related foodstuffs – that we’ve gathered from all corners of the internets and arranged on a pretty, happy platter for your gnoshing pleasure. Now, we don’t wanna strongarm y’all into following us on Twitter against your will or wevs, so every Saturday, we’ll post a recap of the week’s Daily NOM tweets right here on this space, for extra-easy convenience. (What can we say? We are people pleasers, through-and-through.) We also reserve the right to yip and yap about anything else that may have caught our attention throughout the week. Agreed?

Well, with that intro out of the way, behold: the Saturday Garbage Plate!

  • First up: the aforementioned recap of all the stickyhot NOM action that went down in our corner of the Twitternets this week. (Be hot and follow us, kay?)

    Sunday: French Bread Pizza from the Irreverent Vegan

    Monday: Vegan Basil Pesto Pizza from The Opinioness of the World

    Tuesday: White Pizza from (the über-adorable) Vegan Pandamonium

    Wednesday: Vegan BBQ Tempeh Pizza from Bikya Masr

    Thursday: Mushroom and Onion “Pizza” from Bok Choy Bohemia

    Friday: The Pizza Burger from PETA UK (hello, International NOM!)

    Saturday: Easy Vegan Tortilla Pizza (and a Workout Realization) from (the no doubt cheekily named) Eating Bird Food

  • French photographers Jean-Louis Klein and Marie-Luce Hubert expose The Secret Life of Harvest Mice as Never Seen Before! And yes, it’s about as adorable as you’d expect. Check out the slideshow here.
  • The ever-awesome Wing-It Vegan is back from hiatus, and in a big way: Halloweegan style! For those unfamiliar, Halloweegan is a month-long celebration of Halloween, as performed in vegan food. The pairing of Halloween and veganism is only fitting, if you think about it; the vegan set tends to lean towards religious unorthodoxy, heathenism included. Plus, we loves our vegan eats; not only do we enjoy consuming vegan food, but there’s also the joy of creating, discovering, discussing, fantasizing about, obsessing upon, and even playing with cruelty-free food to tickle our fancies. Show me a vegan and I’ll show you someone who appreciates a good (and good-looking) NOM.

    Case in point: Wing-It Vegan. What with her Chocolate Witches’ Hats, Eyeball Cupcakes and Spooky Pancakes, you might call her the High Priestess of Halloweegan. Don’t believe me? Get a load of her past Halloweegan creations, join her newly-minted Halloweegan Flickr group, or join her in observing Halloweegan at wingitvegan.blogspot.com. She will not disappoint! In fact, she’ll make you salivate. All over your keyboard. So wrap it in plastic, is what I’m saying.

  • Last week marked the first day of fall, and you know what that means – the start of a new school year. Writing at the IDA Blog, Annie Judah-Shannon offers a four-step plan for getting healthy, vegan options into your (or your child’s) school cafeteria: Veganize A School Cafeteria Near You in 4 Easy Steps! The short version? Agave nectar and reams of research, people.
  • Speaking of healthy school lunch options, please join Elizabeth Kucinich and the PCRM in asking Congress to support the Healthy School Meals Act. Pretty please with So Delicious on top?
  • Last but not least, we have two – count ’em, two! – new vegan eateries opening on the east and west coasts this week: Blackbird Pizzeria (a, duh, pizza parlor!) and No Worries (Filipino Vegan Cuisine, represent!), respectively. If you find yourself in Philadelphia or Oakland, be cool and patronize these fine dining establishments, mkay?
  • Okay, I lied.

    Rescue dogs! In a music video! That ends with a pro-adoption PSA! By OK Go! How shiny is that? (Answer: Terribly.)
