It's all gravy, baby

Sleep would not come easy last night. After spending the day making posters for the Circus protest, and then spending a couple of hours at the protest, I figured I would be ready for bed. But, by 3 am I was still tossing and turning. I had a lot on my mind, of course. It seems I may be moving to Austin sooner than I thought. I am not getting much response from the farms in California, so I decided to send my resume to a couple of jobs in Austin. My friend also wants to move there, and is working on selling her house right now. So, if we can find a place to live, and get jobs, we may just be there by next month!

Other than that, I was thinking about the big, yummy breakfast I wanted to make in the morning. Candy made me some banana bread muffins (she knows my weakness), and I wanted to make some TVP sausage and gravy to go along with them. But, that wasn't all I was thinking of. I was thinking of the super duper fantastic new recipe idea I have been muddling over. We decided to have a veg Italian feast this week, and I chose to make dessert as usual. I wanted to try my hand at vegan tiramisu. I got to thinking, and came up with an insane idea... but you'll just have to wait and see how it turns out!

And now, my breakfast.. you didn't think I would leave you hanging, did you?I loosely based the sausage patties on my gramma's recipe, which I subbed TVP for ground turkey. The gravy is a nutritional yeast/chickpea type gravy, but not the kind from VWaV. Still yummy and comforting on this rainy summer day.

And, for good measure, hummus..Kalamata hummus, lettuce and sprouts, carrot sticks, seaweed rice crackers

Wow, moving to Austin sounds like fun! I know I would move there if I could move my job.... How did the circus protests go? Wish I could have made it but was out of town in Boston. Hope everything works out!

I think it will be great, but I will miss Houston. Good thing one of my friends is already there, and another is moving with me!
The protests went well. The last day there were only four of us, but at least we had exposure. Hope you had a great time in Boston. Maybe I'll see you around before I leave. Do you plan to go to the next meetup or anything?
