Not to toot my own horn, but when I set my mind on doing something, it gets done. And it gets done well. This weekend I decided to focus on eating all the good foods and having fun. It was tough at times, but I think I did a good job.
I started at Revolution Doughnuts. I was pleased to see they have clearly marked all vegan donuts with a “V”. I picked up a couple of apple fritters, a raspberry sprinkle, dark chocolate and a vanilla.
The apple fritter had real apple bits.
N and I went to the Atlanta Mini Maker Faire at Georgia Tech later. We went last year and they have definitely grown. The fair is basically a place where a bunch of nerds and creative DIY’ers share and create. There are usually a bunch of robotics and engineering things in addition to crafty things.
Some highlights include watching shirts get screen printed. These cute designs are by Chris Neuenschwander at Noosh Studios,
Chinese calligraphy by Lin Li from the Atlanta Chinese Calligraphy Lovers Association,
eclectic bikes from bike kayaks, double-decker bikes
and a shoe bike that N actually rode. He didn’t fall.
There was also a lot of fun DIY projects for
me kids, like mini steam rolling printing
and squishy circuits made out of homemade play-doh!
So much creativity a hungry girl it did make. So later that night, we went to the Atlanta Food Truck Park to watch our friends New Terminus play (Former Fish Taco Fanatic’s husband is the drummer!) and get some grub.
We ate at the Soul Veg truck, but it was so dark that this is the only decent pic that came out. It’s the last bit of N’s vegan cheese steak. I had jerk tofu with greens…oh, so good!
On Sunday, we made sure to get to Dough Bakery and Gutenfleischers to get their turkey dinner special before it ended. A hoagie stuffed with mashed taters, thinly sliced “turkey” and smothered with gravy. No words, all drool.
They had festive cupcakes that I couldn’t resist either.
All in all, I’d say a gluttonous job well done!
