Q & A

Happy Friday everyone! It’s almost time for the weekend. Kim and I are hosting one of our dinners on Saturday so it will be filled with lots of cooking for me. I’m excited though because we’re doing breakfast for dinner, which is pretty much the best.

So I said I’d answer questions and a few of you had them so here goes!


When did first decide to go vegan and what prompted it?

Well, it’s not really a short story but you can read it here. I’m closing in on six years being vegan, which makes me happy.

What’s your favorite breakfast, lunch and dinner?

This question is a lot harder than one might think. Let’s start with breakfast. I eat the same breakfast nearly every day: sourdough toast with earth balance and nutritional yeast. So I guess you could say that is my favorite. On the other hand, I do seriously love some tofu benedict, but that is sort of a special treat.

Now lunch is pretty tricky. I’d have to say some kind of sandwich. I am a big fan of extra creamy tofu salad sandwiches. I eat a lot of tofu banh mis as well since there is a Vietnamese place near where I work. I also love vegan reubens.

As for dinner, I’m gonna go with pizza. I love nearly all kinds of pizza. I’m still dreaming about this one. I particularly like thin crusts with exotic toppings.

Obviously this is not a very balanced diet in combination with each other…but you did ask my favorites.


What exactly is it you do for a living?

I’m a Post Production Accountant. Sounds boring, huh? Basically I do accounting for films and TV shows after they’ve finished filming when they’re editing and just wrapping up different aspects. It’s definitely more interesting than regular accounting and I’ve learned a lot about the finance side of film production so I appreciate that. Oh, and I’m good at it, so I’ve got that going.


What do you want to be when you “grow up?”

Gosh, I don’t even know if I have an answer to this. I want to be a filmmaker. I guess in some ways I am already but I’d like to actually get paid for it.

The truth is though, I just want to have the opportunity to be creative and make things.


When do we get to see more of a sneak peek into your new house?

What if I say Monday? I think I could make that happen. I hope. In the mean time, here are some details and other things to hold you over.


How did you and Shawn meet? 🙂

The short version is that we met in a 7/11 parking lot on a bike ride. The longer cuter version is here.


Miss Alix – why does Mochi look so shell-shocked? What has she seen that she cannot unsee?

Oh I hope we haven’t traumatized our cat by watching too many horror movies around here. Most likely she just caught her sister eating the last of the cat food.

    Alix, have you ever eaten Marmite? If you like nutritional yeast on toast, you will love Marmite on toast. It tastes yeasty and delicious and it sort of melts into the margarine and it’s full of B12. If you have any way to buy a jar I would thoroughly recommend doing so.
