Two Weeks with a Vegan

My cousin Sarah stayed with me over the last two weeks and as a trade for the guest room I proposed she do the cooking. Sarah is a vegan so the cheese, butter and eggs in the fridge took a little time off and fresh farmers market veggies became the focus of our meals together. I picked out recipes from the always inspiring My New Roots and a site I recently discovered called Healthy.Happy.Life.

Follow the hyperlinks for recipes...
Vegan Recipe Raw Pad Thai


Recipe Vegan Creamy Minted Pea Soup

Recipe Vegan Black Eyed Sweet Potato Sliders

Recipe Vegan Split Pea Sunshine and Saffron Soup

Recipe Vegan Tower of Power and Cilantro Pesto
Tower of Power- made with Green Giant Cilantro Pesto in place of egg

Lucky me, what a delicious week!  In between these dishes were a lot of fresh smoothies made in the Blendtec as well as a few restaurants.  Needless to say, we ate well. It is always good to be reminded that every meal doesn't need to have animal products and that vegan doesn't always mean creating dishes that replicate meat. Fresh produce and herbs do a fine job standing alone.  These dishes reminded me a lot of my experiences dining at Sutra in Wallingford.

Willa and McKenzie work together in Seattle and decided to head over to the concert before McKenzie went home to Ballard and Willa headed back home to Snohomish. Willa (originally from Lithuania) finds a lot of her clothes in antique stores and second hand shops out there in Snohomish. Ah, second hand shops outside the city are my favorite...

Ah, arriving for freshman year of college with your best friend... I'm so excited for these two.  Bati and Lily have been best friends since they were 7 and now, after taking a year off of school in their hometown of Portland they are both going to be at UPS together.  It was so fun walking around the campus seeing everyone moving into the dorms and beginning such a significant chapter in their lives.

Ah, serendipity. Just about an hour before I crossed paths with Mike Hadreas on Denny I was walking in the opposite direction listening to his most recent Perfume Genius album Put Your Back N2 It.  Perfume Genius has been on heavy rotation on my ipod for the last year. I'll leave explanation to the numerous reviews you will find have been written all over the internet about Mike's hauntingly beautiful music and simply say that for me it is just so often exactly what I need to hear.  Highly recommend.

I found these two beautiful ladies on their way into Kaleidoscope Vision the other day when I was walking down 10th.  Too many things I love about their style to even try to list them all but I will say that I have been attempting to recreate this up-do on myself since taking the photo... Haven't been completely successful yet.

Speaking of Kaleidoscope Vision, the current theme there is Tenth Avenue Bazaar "Featuring mini shops and work from Seattle based curators and creators".  Such a great idea!

Kim works for Highland Public Schools.  It is always extra interesting to me when I photograph someone stylish who is in a line of work that isn't known for being fashionable. I imagine that their co-workers must look forward to seeing what sort of outfit they have put together each day.  If I worked with Kim I would always wander over to her desk to see what she was wearing.  Office jobs often aren't the most artistic or creative environments so it is fun when someone is able to brighten your day with a neat outfit.

I love Andrew's style.  I photographed him downtown earlier in the year and both times I've seen him I have been struck by how smart his look is.  Always with great attention to detail and fit.

These two were visiting Seattle from Hamburg Germany and stopped by the KEXP Concert at the Mural during their trip. I meet a lot of people visiting from abroad when I go to those shows...

Oh, and if you are wondering how to snag these shoes Sophie said that they are from Zara.

I saw these canvas bags at Butter Home recently.  They had all different prints... I had my eye on one that was drawings of all different kinds of labeled herbs.

I'm just full of hyperlinks today.

Kirk


Seattle Center

Never underestimate the versatility of a tailored white button up. The right one can be just as comfortable as a t-shirt and makes an outfit look so put together. Kirk is a biking pedestrian planner for the city of Redmond. He found these boots at Edie's; one of my favorite places to get good looking shoes that are comfortable for walking around the city in.

Jayamei stopped by the KEXP mural concert on Friday during her visit here from Australia.  When I asked were she got her bag she said that she finds fun things like this by shopping in different Opp Shops during her travels.  I had to ask what that was... it is Australian for thrift store.
