Before I moved to San Francisco, the girls and I would get together for a vegan girl’s night every once in a while. None of them are vegan but a few dabble with vegetarianism and so we could all eat everything we just made it a vegan night (my girls are awesome).
So now that it’s been 2.5 years since our last vegan night, we were overdue and needed an excuse to go over and see Mayela’s cute apartment.
Mayela, Michaeline, Michele, Wendy, Lia, Me (Stephanie), and Peanut (a dog)
The Ladies Night exception:
Charlie (and boy and a dog)
Puff pastry mushroom/spinach/ v cream cheese things
Trader Joe’s Japanese rice
Pizza (from me-duh)
Ginger molasses cookies
