Vegan Lunch Box

Slashfood is constantly linking me to great sites, and i had to mention this food blog Vegan Lunch Box, which is now linked to my blog. Jennifer, the author of this blog, features the lunch box meals she packs for her kid using Laptop Lunch Boxes.

Jennifer has also created The Magical Loaf Studio, a very clever vegan loaf generator for those of you who are into making dinner loaves.

i was a vegan for about 12 years, and even though i don't practice veganism "religiously" any more, i still think a meat-free diet is a healthier way of life.

Cooking Cute - Bento Love

i came across this Cooking Cute bento food blog and just had to add it to my links of Food Blogs to Note.

when i was in school, my mom packed our lunches in these tiffin carriers. not as fancy as bento boxes, but they ensured we had wholesome, homecooked food.

Gilroy Garlic Festival

i volunteered for the first time at the Gilroy Garlic Festival today. my volunteer name tag said i was a garlic bread chef. i was actually assigned as a "runner" between the grilling ovens, where the french bread was toasted, and the "garlic butter smearing" station (not sure what to call it), where the toasted bread was smeared with that tasty garlic butter and cut up before serving. i'm not sure how many runs i made between the two stations, the distance between them being about 50 meters, the length of an olympic size swimming pool. all i know is that my feet are sore from standing and walking since 1:45pm till we were done at about 7pm. i got to take a few potty breaks and refreshment breaks. there was a "rain room" set up where misters sprayed cool mists of water under a canopy and cooled us down. i had a fun time chatting with fellow volunteers while working.

wish i had pictures of my own to post, but my hands were occupied delivering bread to the buttering station. you can check out KSBW's news coverage of the event at:
you'll see the garlic bread buttering station in the video, and also the Pyro Chefs stirring up flames at the garlic scampi station.
