Wow, I can't believe that it's been so long since my last post. I've been out of town traveling a bit, and it feels so good to be home.
The first trip I took was to Washington DC. What a spectacular place to visit. I wish I had more time to explore all of the museums and monuments there. I was actually in DC for instructor training for The Cancer Project. They are a non-profit organization advancing cancer prevention and survival through nutrition education and research. The Cancer Project is an amazing group that offers free cooking classes across the country. I am so excited to be a part of their organization.
I met some very cool people at the training from all over the country. It was so much fun to be with a group of fellow vegans. We really only had one night to play, and so before exploring DC we all had the same destination in mind. Sticky Finger's Bakery! OMG, it was so good! We ordered a number of different items, and dug in with forks. Pretty healthy of us, huh? Of course I forgot my camera at home, so unfortunately I don't have any pictures. Let me just say that the vanilla cake was unforgettable!
It was my first time in DC, and it was truly incredible seeing everything up close. I was really in awe. So much history right in front of my eyes. I didn't have much time to sight see, though we did get a quick tour one night after we had digested our Sticky Finger's meal. I look forward to going back to DC and sight seeing.
After getting back from DC, I flew down to LA for five days. My brother just opened a small cafe in Silverlake, California. Silverlake's a very hip and cool area in LA. He wanted some vegan items on the menu, and I happened to be his go-to vegan chef. Sometimes it pays to have a vegan chef for a sister.

So that I don't completely bore you, I'll talk about the LA restaurants in my next post. Until then....Happy Fall!
