Voting, pizza and other stuff

Today is the big day! I'm going to go and vote shortly.

On saturday, I went to the Seattle vegan meetup, which was at Kitaro, a Japanese restaurant. I ate a ton of sushi of which I forgot to take pics (as usual). There was a good turnout and I had a lot of fun. I'm getting psyched for the Thanksgiving potluck, though I haven't settled on what to make yet. If you're in Seattle on TG and don't have plans, consider attending.

We went to Pizza Pi on the way home. They have a new item on their menu, Cheezeburger Pizza. I've heard of it before a long time ago, but never had one or knew what it was about. It's really good and would be easy to recreate for those of you that don't live in Seattle. Bake a pizza with cheeze and fake hamburger on it - no sauce. Then put chopped up lettuce, onion, tomato, ketchup and mustard on top & your'e done. A co-worker of Andy's suggested pickles which makes total sense to me. Anyhow, you have to try this. The substandard pics don't do it justice, but I had to show you what it looks like because it is a strange and wonderful creation.

The owners of Pizza Pi and another couple bought the Wayward Cafe. We haven't been yet, but will do so soon.
We used the recipes from the Southern Cooking class to make some biscuits, gravy and smoky collards. Delicious! The recipes turned out just like they did in class, so you know Dawnula did an awesome job creating them. Woohoo! We brought them to some friends that recently had a baby. He is such a cute baby!

Speaking of cute babies, I saw this pic on the camera that I had to share. My guess is that Chippy was there first and Peepa invaded his space. Peepa is the ultimate space invader that doesn't have boundaries!!! Just ask Tubs.

Mmm, that pizza and the Southern cuisine look delish!!

Cute cats :0)

That pizza is so interesting and delicious sounding. I always love those photos of your cats! Obama 08!

Space invader! Those little tails hanging out of the box are so cute!
That pizza is very intriguing, I must have it. Awesome southern cookery skills! :)

Bethany said...

now that you mention it, it does strike me as odd that they hang their tails out of the box - I now wonder if it is normal.

I guess they are dainty cats that don't like to dirty their tails :)

Siamese cats do have strange habits (God I almost typed Hobbits then - I'm still on my first cup of tea of the day - LOL!)
That Pizza intrigues me no end....

Bethany said...

chippy is a siamese mix (I'm guessing mix because he spent some time at a shelter before he decided to move in w/ us.

peepa is a cornish rex and very pushy.

joanna said...

omg biscuits and gravy!!! i miss those from my non-vegan days. i would always get that for breakfast on vacation in west virginia. i will definitely be making that.

Jeni Treehugger said...

Cornish Rex's are BEAUTIFUL!!
AND full of attitude (aren't all cats??).
I have two Siamese mixed kitties.

Chessa said...

Another restaurant on my list of "to-try"! And that cheeseburger pizza looks yum! I'm going to have to go just me and my 2-year-old sometime for it, cuz my husband would totally veto it if he were with.

Yay, I'm glad the southern recipes are getting more love! I think my body requires the smoky collards at least once a week.

And I love the kitty pic! Too funny.

Bethany said...

update on litterbox pic: Andy confirmed my guess that Peepa invaded Chippy's space. And he was in and out before Chippy. Though I'm pretty sure that Chippy was waiting for him to leave. I know I would.

Jeni - all of my cats are full of attitude, but I love the bad cats the best.

Chessa & Joanna - It's sick, but I'm already craving some biscuits and gravy. Just finished the collards yesterday, so I'm good w/ those.

Chessa - Pizza Pi also had a really good caesar salad. Plus it's right across the street from Sidecar so you can get some vegan goodies.

Yay for Seattle vegan meetup! I joined that group a few weeks ago and I'm looking forward to attending the meetups! Darn....I kinda wish I were in Seattle for Thanksgiving so I could join the potluck :)

That pizza looks really good, and so does the tofu scramble in your recent entry. It seems that everyone has been making tofu scrambles the past few days....must be contagious!

Bethany said...

Looking forward to meeting you at the vegan meetup when you get up here.

Hopefully we start having more potlucks, because I love them.

Problem w/ the tofu scramble virus is that there isn't a cure, but with montly scramble "treatments" you can live a productive life.
