Culinary Activism

As the lovely Debora has posted on our subversive brunch activities, I'll simply remember my favorite things:

The Spinach-Artichoke-Mushroom Strata, complete with supersonic orange soy cheese, turned out well. It's incredibly simple to make, and serves as a perfect lunch when paired with a green salad.

Debora made Lemon Corn Waffles in advance. We encouraged brunchers to give them a quick dunk in the toaster before dousing them in dark sexy Blueberry Sauce.
Rosemary Roasted Potatoes were kept warm in a rice cooker on the buffet table. We also served Seitan Bacon, a favorite of our comrades at the Olympia, Washington Guerilla Brunch.

Wondering if we'd have enough food, I made a quick batch of Orange Glazed Scones from Vegan with a Vengeance. The masses soon descended on these, and gave rave reviews. I recommend making some and getting glazey and nibbly. Post haste!

And--from Green Mountain Coffee, THE BEST COFFEE EVER. Organic and fair trade and wonderful, it was amazing stuff.

Plenty of fresh fruit. This time: papaya, strawberries, bananas, oranges, pineapple, and cantaloupe, much of it organic.

We were blessed with flatware and dishes, and Debora purchased some white tablecloths on the cheap. Ron and I grabbed our scooter keys, some shopping bags, and scissors, and soon the neighborhood had a few less blooms. I had just planted the terrace with all sorts of green and white plants: hydrangea, petunias, dahlias, zinnias, and some herby stuff. Everything was cute and matchy, the perfect backdrop for conversations about activism and anarchy.

And scones.
