I ate a lot of salad this weekend. A LOT. And then last night I got this CRAZY craving for seitan. I had been feeling it for a while but I didn't eat it because it isn't raw. But then, my love for seitan could not wait anymore and I did something I've never done before -- I actually drove to the grocery store just to pick up one item because I absolutely had to have it, right then. And it was really, really good. Yumyumyum.
I also had some miso/kim chi soup this weekend, which just meant I heated up some water for a minute in the microwave, then stirred in some miso and kim chi. Very sophisticated.
Today I went to Vegan Village Internet Cafe for lunch with a Meetup group full of people I had never met before. I had a great time and stayed so long that by the time I got home it was dinnertime. I just talked to people for a long time about a wide variety of stimulating topics. I love good conversation! I had this kale salad:
It was really tasty but I wished it was about twice that big. Most of the menu there is soul food and everyone seemed to really enjoy what they ordered. I did have a bite of the mac 'n cheese and the gumbo and both were fantastic.
I've also been doubling down on trying to find a literary agent, but I'm not having much luck. I wrote a book about traveling in Europe -- it's half travel narrative/half how-to guide. I have queried lots of agents who seemed to have similar interests and gotten some responses, but they all culminated in a "Good work, keep it up, it's just not right for me at this time" message. Too bad =( and very frustrating.
Tomorrow I have a callback for a short film in Marina del Rey. I haven't been down there yet, maybe they'll have a good beach for walking on!
I'll leave you with this really cute picture of my cousin Grace and my stepdad's dog Garvey - my mom sent it to me today b/c my aunt and uncle were visiting them this weekend.
