The bags are packed
The tours have been scheduled and the maps printed out
The restaurants have been Happy Cow‘ed
when you go to Southern California (Vegan hub of the golden state), you have to visit at least a few. #priorities
We’ve cleaned out the fridge…
Well, sometimes you find yourself about to leave for a week with two GIANT zucchinis, a huge bunch of veganic* chard, and a large bag of baby potatoes…hence the veggie filled dinner…
*veganic is food grown organically (no pesticides) without animal fertilizers. So it’s vegan-organic. Get it? Theres a veganic farm at a near farm sanctuary. No risk of E.Coli or other diseases!!!
Frozen what we couldn’t consume
Look at all of those bananas…so close to banana bread :(…
And yes, that would be bananas, tortillas, and avocados. I also froze half of a breakfast cake. Deal.
And made ice cream with some leftovers…
sometimes you turn fails (lemon tofu frosting with WAY too much xanthan gum…) into successes (lemon vanilla ginger apricot ice cream/sorbet) ice cream is kept in the freezer. I am justified.
My mom caught me cleaning out the vitamix
and by cleaning I mean licking.
and by “my mom caught me” I mean I giggled about how funny it would be if she had, contemplated asking her to take a picture of what I was doing, and decided to take a selfie instead. #noshame. #iputhashtagsinmyblogeventhoughtheyarepointlesshere #dealwithit. 😉
And with that we are all set and ready to leave in the AM!!!
For the next 5 days I am going on a college tour to visit UC Santa Barbara, Pepperdine, UCLA, UC San Diego, and San Diego State University. I may or may not blog in the next few days, but I will take lots of pictures for you I promise!!!
Here I go!
