Some new(ly discovered by me) vegan resources and cleaning out my closet

I found Volentia through a facebook group and it's a whole networking site just for vegetarians. You can designate your vegetarian level, join the vegan group, and pimp your veggie blog . Yeah, I know yet another social networking site to keep up with, but hey it's ALL vegetarians, so it's pretty freakin' awesome.

Also there's vegblogs which searches for the latest in vegan blogs. You'll recognize some old blogosphere friends and maybe find some new ones.

The Pantry:

So the pantry isn't really a pantry, it's a closet next to the kitchen that holds all my tangible vegan resources so I can make chickpea cutlets, chocolate cupcakes, or anything other recipe from my stack of vegan cookbooks without having to make a trip the store.

In case there is ever some world catastrophe that leaves us all living like we're in The Road, you know where to come. Here's the pantry in piles on my living room floor. Hey, at least now it's organized. I'll be featuring some of these staples more this month. Now let's see, what to do with barley....

I'll also be at Vegan Drinks this month making cupcakes for Haiti.

I tried organizing my pantry over winter break, but only managed to get one shelf in order. I discovered all the gems I couldn't see behind to numerous bags of spices and flours in my pantry.

I had to re org my panrty because all of the ants started coming in for winter and eating ALL of my food. Every box had them in it so everything is now in containers.

I probably should try and organise my cupboards, they are a royal mess and god knows what's lurking in there that I thought was a good idea at the time!!
