Vegan Thanksgiving 2016

September 2016 – Potluck

TAPAS CRAWL, VEGAN STYLE!

Bring a 100% plant-based tapas-style dish free of flesh, eggs, animal-derived dairy, honey, and gelatin. If you don’t cook, that’s okay — bring something from the store! Your dish should serve 6 people.

Before I get to this month’s theme, I wanted to let people know that these potlucks are way more popular than the RSVP counts on this meetup page. Our average potluck attendance is about 25 people, because we get many people from the Chico Vegan Meetup Facebook group, as well as from chicovegan.com.

The suggested theme of this month’s potluck is: TAPAS TIME, VEGAN-STYLE! 

WHAT THE HECK ARE TAPAS?????  Tapas are essentially finger foods, usually served (and expected) as snacks at bars, and they can range from rather fancy compilations of fine ingredients to a toothpick of olives, à la extra olives in a martini. Go here if you want to learn more. 

HERE ARE SOME VEGAN RECIPES:
8 Meat-Free Tapas for Sampling Spanish Cuisine OR
Vegangela Tapas OR
Top 8 Vegan Tapas for World Tapas Day

If you’re not into cooking but just want to socialize, it’s fine to bring something yummy from the store, AS LONG AS IT IS IN THE TAPAS STYLE.

People are also asked to bring their recipe or a list of all ingredients used (for the benefit of those with food allergies).

Please do not bring soup – we have no bowls and are concerned about spills.

Please bring your own beverages.

Please bring your own plates, cups, silverware, and serving utensils. We have spares available if you forget!

Non-veg friends welcome! Children welcome! Sorry, no dogs. No alcohol.

The Chico Vegan Potluck meets on the fourth Saturday of every month at 6:00 pm. Delicious food and recipes are shared with those who care about their health, the planet, and, most of all, the animals.

FARMER’S MARKET EXTRAVAGANZA!

Bring a 100% plant-based dish free of flesh, eggs, animal-derived dairy, honey, and gelatin. If you don’t cook, that’s okay — bring something from the store! Your dish should serve 6 people.

Before I get to this month’s theme, I wanted to let people know that these potlucks are popular! Our average potluck attendance is about 25 people, because we get many people from the Chico Vegan Meetup Facebook group, as well as from Chico Vegan Meetup.

The suggested theme of this month’s potluck is: FARMER’S MARKET FUN! Take a walk through one of our many Farmer’s Markets (or your own garden) or the ‘local’ section of your nearest market. No one’s going to be checking to see where you got your produce from! Then, think of a yummy vegan appetizer/snack, salad, entree or dessert that you fancy, make it, and share it!

If you’re not into cooking but just want to socialize, it’s fine to bring something yummy from the store.

People are also asked to bring their recipe or a list of all ingredients used (for the benefit of those with food allergies).

Bring a 100% plant-based dish free of flesh, eggs, animal-derived dairy, honey, and gelatin. If you don’t cook, that’s okay — bring something from the store! Your dish should serve 6 people. Just a heads up: soup is not a good item to bring since we do not have any bowls.

The suggested theme of this month’s potluck is: Kid-Friendly Meals. Bring an appetizer/snack, salad, entree or dessert that kids could make by themselves or with a little help from a grown-up. This theme was inspired by the new vegan cookbook by Ruby Roth titled The Help Yourself Cookbook for Kids. It’s perfectly delightful!

People are also asked to bring their recipe or a list of all ingredients used (for the benefit of those with food allergies).

Please bring your own beverages.

Please bring your own plates, cups, silverware, and serving utensils. We have spares available if you forget.

Also, because we have no bowls, soup is not a good item to bring.

Non-veg friends welcome! Children welcome! Sorry, no dogs. No alcohol.
