Last Soccer Game

It was a stormy night and, in the morning, we were sure Jackson's last soccer game of the season would be cancelled, but the coaches felt it would be too difficult to try to reschedule, so the game was on. The field was basically one giant, muddy puddle. Of course the boys had fun slipping and sliding around!

Afterwards we walked over to the playground for a little end-of-season celebration. Their wonderful, encouraging coach said a few words about each boy and gave them a trophy.

Go Dragons!

I made chocolate mini-cupcakes with raspberry buttercream (recipe from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World.) They went quickly!

We snacked the rest of the day on olives, fruit, and Spinach Artichoke Dip from Dreena Burton's latest, Plant-Powered Families. I love that it's made from cashews rather than a ton of faux cheese and mayo. Dreena feeds her kids the way I like to feed my family.

We scooped the dip onto torn-off chunks of fresh baguette. The bread recipe is from The Garden of Vegan, it's an old favorite that produces a great baguette.


  1. I really have to try the baguette recipe. I haven't used my Garden of Vegan cookbook in ages, really not that much since discovering Isa Chandra Moskowitz. My favorite recipe from Garden of Vegan is the coffee cake. It is so good.

    1. I don't think I have tried that coffee cake, I will have to check it out.
