It’s pretty well known that I’ve only missed one thing since quitting meat. I’ve tried everything to make up for it.  Vanilla lattes, cupcakes, buttercream…. nothing quite worked.  The lattes came close.  

But I’ve found it, thanks to a helpful pasta lady and a local health food store.  For the first time in ten long years, I have hot cocoa with marshmallows. Boo-freakin’-yah. I’ma go have me a party. 

The moral of the story?  Eat local, and get to know your market vendors.  They can find you anything.
