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.


That’s Mochi, one of our dear cats, in case you hadn’t met her before. The look on her face is sort of how I’ve been feeling lately after spending hours in front of the computer everyday, maxing out my mental capacity. Things are in transition at the moment in some ways and in some ways they are the same as they’ve always been. I feel like this blog has been neglected somewhat despite my best efforts.

I thought I’d do something a little fun and different. Is there anything you’ve ever wanted to ask me (or Shawn perhaps)? Well here is your chance…anything you want to know, I’ll be answering. Ok, within reason. I do have some decency you know.

So go for it! Ask away here in the comments, or you can email me at veganbakesale@gmail.com and I’ll respond here on the blog.

In other news, we’ve been gearing up for October little by little, watching lots of movies in our spare time (which for me, usually means while I work in the evenings). We even started a little club to chronicle the films we see. It makes my heart happy.

Ten Questions

Hello my dears! I’ve been thinking about you a lot. Brainstorming in fact, which in it’s own way has stopped me from actually writing.

I have some questions for you.

Here’s the story. I’ve had this blog for quite some time now. And I love it. I hope you like it too. When it started, it was an exercise entirely just for myself. Since then it’s grown into much more, something that I’m very proud of. It’s so terribly exciting for me that people actually read it. I’ve met and talked to so many awesome people from all over.

Ultimately I’m trying to keep making Cute & Delicious more awesome.

Here’s where you come in. I want to know what you think.

I just have a couple questions, and if you wouldn’t mind answering, I would be very grateful. You can let me know your thoughts in the comments or email me at veganbakesale at gmail dot com.
