Vegans, Show Your Compassion for Those Affected By Hurricane Sandy!

Hi all, sorry for the quiet end to MoFo; my power was out for a full week, but I'm happy to report that it's back as of today!  Thankfully, that was my only loss; some folks lost everything.  By now you've probably donated clothes and volunteered time, or maybe you're just far enough away that you're unable to offer assistance on a personal level.  Either way, I'll ask you to consider supporting the very special Cinnamon Snail in their latest endeavor: feeding those in need in the hardest hit areas of New York and New Jersey.

the eponymous Cinnamon Snail
Sign up for or sign in to your PayPal account and hit "send money" to It's that easy for you to help them help those in dire need.

The beauty of this donation is that by supporting The Cinnamon Snail, you are not only buying a meal for a friend you haven't met yet, but you are also introducing someone to the wonders of vegan food; it's win-win.  Being vegan is about compassion for all. Support the Cinnamon Snail's charitable donation to the people affected by the hurricane, then support them again next time they're in your town by treating yourself.

In case you've forgotten what kind of delicious grub you'll be sharing...

fresh fig pancakes with chamomile blood orange syrup and pine nut butter
fiery southeast asian salad with marinated kale, arugula, fresh jalapeños, curried cashews, kimchi, and smoked chili oil
smoked portabello mushroom carpaccio with fried caper berries, carmelized onions, truffled kalamata olives tapenade and arugula on grilled focaccia
gochujang burger deluxe with beer simmered onions and garlic, arugula, piri piri pepper sauce, and horseradish cream on grilled focaccia
meatball hero special
maple mustard tempeh sandwich on grilled spelt bread with roasted garlic aioli, kale, tomato, and onion
Another shot cuz it's VM's fave: portabello carpaccio
chipotle seitan burrito with chipotle grilled seitan, scrambled tofu, fresh jalapeños, marinated kale, and chipotle mayonnaise 
Ned Stevens and Mint Matlock cookies
gluten-free chocolate peanut butter blondie
peanut butter fudge brownie
I hope everyone out there is safe and happy; please help the Cinnamon Snail because it's so easy to lose it all.
