VeganMoFo Day 14: Vegan Cakes Are Hard to Find But Non-Vegan Friends Who Will Buy You A Vegan Cake Are Even Harder.

Wow. Did. They. Ever. Surprise. Me. Not only did they get me a bday cake but they got me a vegan cake! Carrot cake, with real slivers of carrot poking out. The picture doesn't do it justice..it was just beautiful even with the smooshed roses from the car ride over. How can a girl complain about anything in her life if she's got friends like this?

And this was lunch. A favorite staple in our house. Simply, lightly sauteed onions (we used red onion 'cause that's all we had), chickpeas and greens (argula in this case) and vegan gnocchi. Topped with a little Veganomicon cilantro pesto.
