Things that ROCK!

Vegan Chocolate Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Treatsbrought these to TN and the fam and I devoured every last sweet bit of 'em. Saw them on YTVS's blog (just scroll on down to her July 2nd post for the seriously kick butt recipe) and knew they'd be a hit with everyone, omni, veg, and wheat-free alike! You seriously cannot believe how amazing these babies truly are.

Honey Mangoes Sure, they're not local, they're not organic, and they're not cheap. But w-o-w, are they the sweetest, best tasting mangoes I've ever had. They were on sale at our local grocer and we've scarfed them up fresh and in all kinds of salads.

It doesn't matter how many times I eat them, I love them. I love adding whatever we've got on hand to dress 'em up a bit. This one got 'the treatment' with refried black beans, fresh avocado, marinated tomatoes (in just red wine vinegar, salt, oregano, black pepper, and a teeny bit of sugar) and some fresh cilantro. Now that's my kinda fast food!

and last, but certainly not least....the fact that you can now purchase the newest cd from these guys (Full Moon Circle) for only $4.95 on iTunes and pretty much all the other major music download sites. Worth way more than each measely penny you'll spend. They're not vegan (I can only forgive them this as the lead singer/songwriter/guitarist is my little brother ;), but they're on the right track.

Check out the insert text they asked me to write for them for this disc, One Right Way (the title track inspired by Daniel Quinn's Ishmael), to convey to their listeners just what it is that they're all about...

The world as we know it is not our own. It is a gift, a beautiful spiraling orb of green and blue and life and death that has been governed by the moon, sun, and stars for millions of years. Enter Man and his blind destructive behavior. Our culture today is sleepwalking, believing that to continue doing things the way they've always been done is the human way. We challenge each of you to wake up, to see the world we're gifted with open and compassionate eyes, to make up your own right way, to think beyond your self, your species, and the ways of those before you. Challenge what you think you know, dispel the myth, listen to your heart, be unafraid, and join us in our fight to spread the word that there is no One Right Way to live. Be a Leaver not a Taker. Leave the world a better place for your having been in it. May our music inspire you to do just that as our hope in each of you inspires us to write it.

If you wanna give them a listen before you purchase ('cause I know you're gonna buy the music, how could you not?!), check out their myspace.

Why do I torture myself by visiting your site when hungry? Those rice crispy bars are positively stellar!

Great plug for your bro's band - I checked them out on i-Tunes and thought they had a cool sound. (-:
