- Yasmin - we had met at an earlier meetup. It was really nice to see her again.
- The Vegan Ricans, but I didn't have a chance to meet them.
SusanV's Black Bean Hummus. It was delicious and you must make it. I see a 7 layer dip in my future :). I didn't use the optional soy yogurt (because I didn't have any), and I added some olive oil.
I made Hummus using my stepmother's recipe - I put olive oil and paprika on top. She first introduced me to hummus and tofu way back when.
To go with the hummus, I toasted some pitas and also made Celine's cheezy quackers. If you haven't made these crackers, you should do it because they are really great tasting. I just made squares because I'm super lazy and try to avoid cookie cutters if possible. I also made them thin and a little bit browned.
Grapes, oranges and pineapple because who doesn't love fruit.
Here's the food table at the potluck. It didn't have any free space on it (yay). This was the first wave of food. Even more came later on.
Here is the dessert table. The coconut pudding that Vegan Ricans made was really light and delicious (in the large cookie sheet). I also had a pumpkin muffin that Yasmin made. Yummy! The pumpkin pie made by Mary was great. Everybody was raving about the chocolate mousselike cheesecake, but it was gone before I was in the mood for sweets (you can see it on the far right)
Now for the thankful kitty. Of course it's Tubs. You can see how satisfied he is in the pic below. Where is he sitting, you might ask. Hmmmmm.....
Well, he's sitting on the ledge above one of the doors we had installed so that he couldn't get to the other side of the house. He jumps from the countertop to the top of the cabinets (the only cat that can do this in the house), then pushes aside the boxes Andy put on top to block his way and literally walks onto the ledge, then typically jumps into the forbidden zone. I'm sort of surprised that it has taken him months to figure this out. Well, now the spot he is sitting is filled with boxes. Hah!
