The Menu: Comforting coconut curry, fragrant and flavorful basmati rice, and a refreshing cucumber salad rounded out Thursday's satisfying meal. Colleen threw together this tasty curry with tomatoes, mushroom, bell pepper, collards, and potato, and served up a crisp salad of mixed greens and cucumber, lightly dressed with a sweet vinaigrette.
The Goods: We love having lunch guests here at the VNHQ, and today's lunch included not only our beloved weekly guest, VegWebmistress Laura Beck, but also fantastic VN contributor and activist extraordinaire Jasmin Singer. In addition to our lovely guests, we have even more reason to celebrate today, as it marks VN Editorial Assistant Gabrielle's first day on the job! Yes, between launching the 2010 Veggie Awards poll this week, anticipating the arrival of our September+October issue, and welcoming Gabrielle, you could say its been a pretty great week thus far.
