Mmmm summer = salads! A girl at my work made this yummy salad so I had to share it with you and I have made it pretty much everyday now.
I cut one medium sized tomato, 1/4 avocado, 3 medium sized fresh basil leaves cut into small pieces and the juice of about 1/2 one medium lemon seasoned with salt and pepper...and that's it!! YUMMY enjoy :)

So obviously things that make you think of summer is the sunshine, smell of fresh cut grass and BBQ's!!!! This is my First BBQ season eating cruelty free so I am taking it on full force! Yesterday my man friend and I fired up the barbe and had a scrumptious meal. First we made some home made humus (recipe to come...I didn't write it down oops!!) and then followed that with a childhood fave of mine (turned vegan) that we always had in the summer, a Curry Pasta Salad with Green Grapes and Toasted Pine nuts, yum. And to finish it all off we had a yumo veggie burger (Amy's brand...too lazy to make my own!) on a thin whole wheat bun with tomato, avocado and grilled portabello....Delish!! I only have a picture of the Pasta Salad, so here it is with the recipe. This would be an awesome hit to bring or have at your own summer party AND it is cruelty free :) Enjoy...

Justin & I
I put the heart there because I had a toothpaste stain on my shirt!! grr
A few weeks ago I experimented with Tempeh. 'Tempeh is a fermented food made by the controlled fermentation of cooked soybeans with a Rhizopus mold (tempeh starter). Tempeh has a firm texture and a nutty mushroom flavour.' I got a curry flavoured one, it was so good. You can find it in any health food isle in a grocery store or at a health food shop. I crumbled it up in pasta and some stir fry veggies.
