Better get your prep on with this helpful instructional video!
After surviving the obligatory onslaught of bizarre hypothetical questions about what she would do if she lived on a remote jungle island, or was offered a hamburger by a cancer-ravaged uncle in his final act of hospitality, etc, our hero manages to turn the tide and convert her inquisitor into an eager proponent of the abolitionist approach. Optimistic? Maybe. But who couldn't use a little optimism on Thanksgiving?

Who Says Vegans Can't Enjoy Turkeys on Thanksgiving?
We can bear witness to their stories of survival, we can admire their beauty, we can prepare feasts that express our solidarity with them, and we can contribute to their flourishing. Join Farm Sanctuary in establishing a new Thanksgiving tradition that gives these beautiful, social creatures the respect they deserve. Adopt a turkey today!

Ms. Betty in Purple.
This Just in From Los Angeles: BUY ONE GET ONE FREE!
I don't have occasion to do a lot of posts on handbags here at extraVEGANza!. That's because (a) I'm not a big handbag guy; and (b) I had never encountered a line of vegan handbags that did a BOSS enough job instantiating the qualities of creativity, sustainability, affordability, rubber-necking potential, and overall PHATNESS to merit devoting the precious cyber real estate to featuring it. All of that has changed, thanks to Susan Nichole Onofrey, whose Los Angeles based e-retail business was born out of her frustration over the endless, fruitless search "for a designer quality, yet animal friendly bag". Oh, don't we know it. The good news is that, thanks to Ms. Onofrey's decision to be the change she wanted to see in the world, our searching is no longer in vain. Feast your eyes on the fruits of her labor, and then get two for the price of one with free shipping in the United States. Holiday gift shopping for that swank, socially-conscious fashionista in your life has never been so easy! Including the 8 bags featured here, there are well over 50 bags and wallets from which to choose!

I have been way into collards lately and wanted to share my love of them with the world! My favorite involves:

Frying tofu in olive oil and garlic.
Adding collards.
Sprinkling ground ginger to taste.
Adding black pepper.
Adding more minced garlic.
Stir frying until collards are cooked.
Adding sweet chili sauce last.

The above tastes great by itself, but also with whole wheat soba noodles or in a tortilla wrap with hummous. It is perfectly sweet and savory. I ate it at least six times in one week. Mmmmmf.
