Tofu Scrambie

This is my first recipe post!  I love looking at aesthetically pleasing recipes and wanted to create one for you all!  This is an adapted recipe of a tofu scramble that comes from Quick and Easy Vegan Comfort Food by Alicia C. Simpson which is an amazing cookbook that has delicious recipes for biscuits, gravy, mac and cheese, etc.  I hope you enjoy!

I love serving tofu scramble with hash browns and, of course, ketchup and sriracha!

P.S. This took a long time, and not just because of the photo editing.  I don't know how you food bloggers do this all the time!!

Portland Zine Symposium And Coming Home

So, as I've mentioned practically ONE HUNDRED TIMES, I flew up to Portland last weekend for the Zine Symposium!  I had racked up enough miles flying home during college that I got the flight for free.  I woke up early, early, early on Saturday morning, took a shuttle to the airport, and got into Portland at around 8.  I was astounded at how cheap their public transportation is ($5!! For a WHOLE DAY!), had a lovely breakfast at a place called Junior's, and then headed over to the Symposium.  I hung out all day going to several workshops and checking out all the tables.  I finally met the lovely Amber of Fight Boredom Distro in person got to see Maranda and Neely again (we met in San Francisco earlier this year!).  Corina, the creator of Portable Fortitude as well as many other beautiful illustrations was such a sweetheart and right by my roommate's table.  And Kione's hand made sign was too cute not to photograph!  I wish I'd taken more pictures of tables, but I felt intimidated asking.  But I'm working on it!  And hopefully I'll be a little bit more outgoing for the SF Zine Fest and East Bay Alternative Book And Zine Fests coming up soon!

Sunday I explored Portland as a tourist visiting Fat Fancy, Powell's, and several yarn stores.  And on Monday I hung out with a new friend/QT who I'm remaining in close contact with.  n_n  Portland was gorgeous and I definitely want to visit again soon!  I was so intimidated to travel solo, but having folks to hang out with once I was IN Portland made it a perfect experience!

And these last photos are some things I've been up to since I got back.  Porch hangs, Hedwig (who missed me a bit... :3), and crafternoons with Scout and Emil!
