Announcing the Milwaukee Vegan Bake Sale #3 – Saturday, May 14, 2011 at Urban Ecology Center!

HEY, MILWAUKEE (and the rest of the world)!

Apologies for the months-long absence! How ’bout that snowpocalypse, huh? Milwaukee winters are none too kind to my ambition, sanity, or pen-pal skills. Mostly, I sleep away the dark afternoons and only rouse from my hibernating state to eat a lot of hot artichoke dip (and even more cashew-nooch parmesan), see Dismemberment Plan play some reunion shows, eat more artichoke dip, cuddle with my dog, buy two new car windows because my car got broken into twice in a month, etc. Pictures of all of that fun stuff (minus the car break-ins) are coming down the pike. A preview…

vegan Salisbury steak hazelnut cutlet with porcini mushroom gravy, mashed potatoes, and beer-braised Brussels sprouts at Comet Cafe, Milwaukee
chicken-fried tofu with a red wine-shiitake mushroom sauce, roasted broccoli, and roasted Russet potatoes

For now, an announcement: It’s that time again. Time for a vegan bake sale, that is!
The next Milwaukee vegan bake sale will be at Urban Ecology Center (just like the last one) on Saturday, May 14, 2011. Hours will probably be 10 AM – 5 PM. Proceeds will be split between UEC and a local non-profit organization TBD.

To expand on what I am desperately praying will be a mild, unseasonably warm spring, I will also be offering homegrown, ready-to-plant fruit and vegetable seedlings… but I’m only one woman, so I can’t do this all by myself!
As such, it would be awesome if you could bake, grow, and/or stop on by to donate a few bucks toward our causes. I have a great seed-starting light and heat mat setup in my attic (photos and essays about “growing your own” forthcoming), so if you need me to pick up your wee plantlets after you’ve gotten a good start on them and keep them at mine until the sale, I can totally do that.

Is there a particular local non-profit organization for whom we should fundraise?
Do you like baking cookies or growing plants?
Would you like to bake cookies, grow plants, and do a spot of good for your community at the same time?
Do you need seeds to grow at home? (I have tons of extras.)
E-mail me here, or sign up to bake/grow/volunteer here!

Thanks so much, Milwaukee vegans, and I’ll see you in May!
