Mykha's Magic Anniversary Party
Just back from west suburbs of Chicago, where we celebrated my parents' 40th wedding anniversary with this sumptuous vegan spread catered by Mykha's Restaurant in Glen Ellyn, IL. Mykha's is a delightful Vietnamese-French restaurant owned and operated by a fantastic woman who pours the proceeds back into an orphanage in Vietnam (her home country) that she has been helping to support for the past 20 years. Here's what we had:

Roasted winter squash, mushroom rolls, spring rolls, vermicelli rolls, chips and salsa, and marinated tofu with chanterelle mushrooms; it just isn't a party without some vegan cupcakes taking over the world, so moles contributed vanilla chocolate chip with chocolate ganache (my Dad's favorite) and coconut heaven (my Mom's favorite). If you're ever in Glen Ellyn (35 minutes west of downtown Chicago), stop into Mykha's for some amazing vegetarian and vegan fare (try the waterfall tofu or the mushrooms jubilee).
