Sort of review, and a Give-away

Firstly, the sort-of-review!

I was contacted by Susan Smith, a Library Information Science Student in Maryland, who has put together an awesome Vegan Living Resource Guide (here!) which I thought was worth sharing. Go and check it out once you're done here.

There is an overview page - with links to lots of other resource pages, including books and blogs, and then a bunch of more specific pages to answer more specific questions - including Health, Animal Rights, Environmentalism, and viewable documentaries. There is a lot of stuff to read through and digest, but it is a neat idea to have all these resources linked in one place. Thanks Susan!

********************************************************************
Then, the give away. It is a holiday give away, though the winners won't get the books before Christmas. Sorry for not being as organised as I could have been! I will ship anywhere, so you can win for yourself, or for anyone you'd like to send a book to if you already have a copy.


I am giving away 3 books - a copy each of Quick and Easy Vegan Bake Sale, Quick and Easy Vegan Slow Cooking (both by me!) and Quick and Easy Low Cal Vegan Comfort Food by the lovely Alicia Simpson (Review here). All the books are published by The Experiment!




To enter the give away please just leave a comment on this post - how about telling me what you've got planned for your main holiday meal. I'll do a random draw pulling 3 winners, one for each book, on Sunday 23rd at 6pm PT, announcing the winners in the post Monday 24th. Good Luck and Happy Holidays!

We haven't decided yet what we want to eat. Probably twice baked potatoes. I make them the day before and then reheat them when the oven is warm from making our dinner bread or bread rolls. I'd like to try a beet puree if I can find a small enough bag of beets.

Oh probably a seitan roast, its the veggies and gravy that we like best though. But there has to be sausages wrapped in vegan bacon! I have your slow cooker book (which is how I found the blog) but would love either of the other two!

I haven't decided what I'm doing for a main dish yet... and since I'll be going to at least two meals for Christmas, I'll probably be nibbling at best. I usually bring a baked good or dessert, but sometimes roasted veggies too. I can definitely consume roasted veggies as a main dish!

I'll be spending Christmas with my parents (a rare treat these days), and I'm hoping to try to veganize some of their holiday meal standbys! It should be fun, whether it works or not ;)

What a great giveaway! I haven't decided on a main dish for Christmas yet, but I'm leaning toward Chloe Coscarelli's Harvest Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms. I've wanted to try her recipe for a while -- it looks delicious! :)

Since I won't be in town for Christmas, we're having an Italian American potluck planned for New Years. I will be making vegan macaroni and cheese pizza and a chocolate cake for dessert. Others are planning on bringing salads, breads, brushetta, and a risotto! Oooh, I can't wait!

Leah said...

No clue what I'm cooking myself... Need to make 2 meals to take with me... or the same thing for both nights? If I don't bring something -- I guess I'll be eating lots of veggies! Probably a nut loaf...

Susanne Drazic said...

Yikes! I still need to sit down and figure out a menu. I better get on that sometime today or tomorrow.

We'll be finishing up the rest of the Native Foods Wellington that I treated myself to at Thanksgiving.
With brussells sprouts and gravy on the side and some cranberry-orange compote. I'll be needing Alicia's book for sure after all that food.

I didn't spend Thanksgiving with my family, so they've requested my traditional vegetarian Thanksgiving foods for Christmas dinner :)

I'm making vegan potpie Christmas Eve, then going to visit family Christmas day, where I will most likely stick to side dishes.

Happy Holidays!

I'm making a wheatberry and white bean salad to take to my grandparent's house for Christmas day meal. Not your traditional fare, but it is fresh and hearty--and red and green (from the parsley, green onions, tomatoes, red pepper, and cucumbers).
