  1. Oh I love to eat plants grown in my own garden, though I don’t have one yet. Your chili looks cool and spicy, wanna have a try.

  2. Have you tried vegan mac and cheese? It probably is *the* best thing I’ve ever tried and honestly I eat like half the baking pan. Its essentially made with nutritional yeast and soy sauce (?) and of course mac and cheese. A friend of mine found it when he was on his vegan kick on and since discovering this particular brand, I’ve never looked at cheesy mac and cheese the same way.

    Also – its dinner time and this looks delicious!
