I got three pairs of vegan work/walk to work shoes for a total of $42.98 at payless. That sum usually buys barely one shoe. I don't know about all payless shoes, but everything I looked at was all man made materials. All three are surprisingly comfortable and now I can release some leather work shoes to a thrift shop.
I also finally picked up some Dr. Cow's nut cheese. If you miss stinky french cheeses, don't hesitate and get some now. If you don't live in New York you can order it online. I got mine at Life Thyme near Union Square.
I'm serving this with some nice yellow tail shiraz I got for a Christmas gift. It's just me, but it's so fancy I had to be "serving it" somehow. This is hands down my favorite veganized something I've had yet. You'd never know it is cashew cheese. The cream cheese is mild and has some bite and the aged is pungent and earthy.Next time someone has a wine and cheese party, I'm totally bringing this.
