One of the best places we stopped by today was new to us, St. Paul Pet Supply. From the outside, it looks like it only has stuff for dogs, but there is actually a fair amount of supplies and toys for kitties too. It was a cute little shop with great prices and a fun selection of toys, so we'll be back for sure. They also gave out reuseable shopping bags full of samples in celebration of Small Business Saturday, so that was cool too.
We also stopped by Wet Paint and I got a little something for my husband. If you are an art supply or office supply junkie, you need to head over to Wet Paint immediately, you will be in heaven!
After we finished our shopping trip, we decided to have lunch at World Street Kitchen. I'm pretty obsessed with this place, they have AMAZING food and if you haven't been there, you need to go NOW! We shared a vegan plate of dips and we each had a Bangkok Burrito with crispy tofu:
We went to a few other places, but I think I'll save those for a longer post I'm planning on local shops to visit for holiday gifts.
Did you do any shopping for Small Business Saturday today?

But when I searched for funny ideas, you know what I found? This. Someone pinned a pic of our card from a few years ago, that's so bizarre! It's like searching for a recipe and finding pictures of a meal you made two years ago, it's weird but also kind of cool.
Do you guys send out photo cards? Any good photo ideas for me?

This year, we're having some old favorites for Thanksgiving dinner. Stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, mashed sweet potato (with coconut milk and cilantro), pie, and vegan "turkey" cutlets. And because I hate pumpkin pie, I'm making a pumpkin cheesecake instead. I've made it once before and the vegan cream cheese cuts the pumpkin flavor enough that it makes it yummy.
Do you guys have huge Thanksgiving dinners? What are you guys having this year?

How's everyone's October treating them? This month has been a little crazy, but definitely fun. I try to get all of my schoolwork done by Friday afternoon, then the weekend is MINE! So far, we've gone to a haunted house (if you're local, you need to go to Fright Farm, it's awesome), both monster movie and zombie themed improv at Huge Theater, apple orcharding at Aamodt's, and more. We have a ridiculous amount of activities planned for this weekend - gotta pack in all that Halloween fun!
As for projects, I picked out a spooky sock pattern called Faces in the Wallpaper which was inspired by the movie The Haunting. I finished the first sock last night, and hopefully I'll get a fair amount of knitting later today. Yay for spooky socks!
If you're still looking for a fun Halloween project, I just saw this super adorable embroidery pattern from the new pattern company, Red Letter Day Stitches. And, it's a free pattern! Here's a picture of the piece from the Red Letter Day Stitches site:
Cute, right? I just might need to squeeze this project in before Halloween season is over!
So what crafty things are you guys up to this month?

This delicious, moist, perfect in every way loaf was made using a recipe in The Joy of Vegan Baking. This is a great book and this recipe did not disappoint. And luckily, I had help from my husband on the zucchini grating front, that is not exactly my favorite kitchen task!
What are some of your favorite zucchini recipes?

Halloween decorations are already springing up in stores, and today I looked to Etsy for some Fall shopping inspiration. The following treasury is made up of goodies from the Vegan Etsy Team, of which I am a member:
So which item is your favorite?

This is a little bit of what I'm missing:
It's hard to worry about stupid day to day crapulence when you're on the beach, looking out into a seemingly endless body of water.
But things are getting back to normal here and spending time with my awesome friends always helps. Plus, school is starting next Tuesday, so I'll be too busy to feel homesick, right?
Have you guys gone on any super fun vacations this summer?
