Yesterday was the vernal equinox, and what a rainy one it was! So rare for us at this time of year. It was really quite cozy.
We had our usual equinox tea to celebrate, and as usual for the spring tea, I had some dietary restrictions. I couldn't eat most of this, but I did include some vegan things as well. Ken made this huge pile of cucumber sandwiches. I wasn't planning on making these this time, but it's a beloved tradition so he ran to the market in the rain to buy white bread and an English cucumber. So sweet.
I made this nice veggie tray with raw cashew dip so I would have something to eat. The cashew dip recipe is found here. I also made a vegan chocolate cake (Rainer had fun helping me with that one). Later in the day, we were sitting around folding laundry and watching a Project Runway episode and everyone was snacking on vegan chocolate cake and Dieter said, "I want more vegetarian cake, please." It was so cute and funny because most cake is vegetarian, after all.
Happy spring to everyone! I am off to work this morning. I have three solid weeks of work, then one week off for spring break. Am so looking forward to that. And today I get to see Jacob! He came down from Santa Cruz late yesterday and is at my parents house now, but I'll get to see him tonight. Hooray! Looking forward to that.
