To no one's surprise, food is my favorite vehicle for celebration. Last month's marathon food blogging involved a huge amount of cooking, so most of results have shown up here already. The few that didn't are not exactly grandiose, but still noteworthy; such simple delights make being vegan not merely livable, but truly enjoyable.
These fuyu persimmons (some of my favorite fruits) are as local as they get, picked ripe from the backyard tree.
A single, fresh, homemade, whole wheat pita is definitely better than a stack of chemical-laden, factory-born bread. Of course, a stack of homemade pita is even better. Baba ghanouj is a terrific accompanying dip.
Strong, black coffee and a pumpkin scone make another lovely pair, no corporate coffeehouse required.
