After many many emails from our listeners we knew it was time to do a show on Vegan foods/party ideas. Now and then Pumpkin brings us a little tid bit about the vegan lifestyle but we thought doing a completely vegan BBQ for Independance Day would be fun for all. Sunshine naturally gives some vegan cocktail ideas (not to hard since almost all cocktails are vegan). If you are new to the vegan lifestyle you will need a few cook books and a lifeline. We recommend the following books: Garden of Vegan, Vegan a Go-Go!: A cookbook and survival manual for vegans on the go, Go Dairy Free: The guide and cookbook for milk allergies, lactose intolerance and casein-free living, Students Vegetarian Cookbook. Revised: Quick, Easy, Cheap and Tasty Vegetarian Recipes. For that vegan cocktail you don't have to look far, but here are Sunshines favorite Cocktail Bibles. For those of you who just tune in for the shenanigans you won't be disappointed. Pumpkin gets a little smashed and we have a great time in the lounge as usual.
The show is a tribute to Summer and all that goes with it. BBQ's and booze, what better pair? We read some listener email from England, give some advice on parenting and use dirty body part names for no reason at all. You know you want to listen.
