I've had an awesome jam-packed weekend and even though today was pretty hectic, I had an excellent night!
I attended the Gene Baur reading & booksigning at the Borders in Buckhead this evening. It was the first animal rights related reading i've been to (the last one I planned on going to was canceled a few days beforehand), so I wasn't sure what to expect. I enjoyed every moment and was so glad I went. Gene Baur is obviously very knowledgeable on the subject and was so well spoken and just a delight to listen to. There were quite a few folks there, including a class from Morehouse college, so it was really a great turnout. Some good questions were asked afterwards and I left feeling very elated and ready to tackle the world (I also came home to some pamphlets I ordered from COK - so anyone who wants to go leaflet with me sometime here in Atlanta, let me know!).
I purchased his book beforehand and he signed it with a very nice message! It was great to talk to him for a little while and thank him for coming to Atlanta.
I didn't realize until the last moment that I had my camera with me, so I didn't have time to adjust the settings...so please forgive me for the dark, out of focus shots I took.
As for our weekend, we were out and about for most of it, so I wasn't doing too much cooking or baking at home (though I did make 2 dozen peanut butter cookies from the Damn Tasty Vegan baking cookbook Thursday night). We ate out at Soul Vegetarian Friday night and as usual, left completely satisfied and very full. I had my favorite meal there, BBQ cauliflower w/ macncheese and collard greens. YUMM. Mondo had the crispy tofu cutlets w/ sweet potatoes and collard greens. We both had some of their delicious vegan chocolate ice cream afterwards. I don't have any photos of what we ate, since it's kind of dark in there in the evenings, but trust me - it's amazing.
I hope everyone out there had a lovely weekend, too! Spring is definitely sticking around here in Atlanta, so i'm looking forward to spending more time outdoors and more time trying new recipes in the kitchen!
