Breaking Bread


True story. I invited a bunch of vegans over my house to eat dinner and Gene Baur showed up.

Seriously. I wouldn’t lie to you.


The picture above is the buffet set up in my living room area. Gene dug in, as did all my other guests.


It was just a light meal of swiss chard simmered in coconut milk and curry, roasted cauliflower, barbecue tofu, mashed potatoes and gravy, spinach quiche, cinnamon rolls, pecan pie and peach ice cream. Yep, just a meal I threw together. lol!

I ate the peach ice cream for dinner. Mainly because it was all that was left because I forgot to put it out and everyone ate everything else.

Because of the Vegan Foodtruck, I have met and befriended some of the most amazing vegans! Because of the Vegan Foodtruck I have invited total strangers into my home and they leave as lifelong friends. Because of the Vegan Foodtruck, PETA knows who Ste Martaen is. Because of the Vegan Foodtruck our vegan line of cheeses has gained major exposure. Because of the Vegan Foodtruck, Gene Baur showed up to my house for dinner as a stop on the Just Eats Tour. I didn’t know who he was until Meagan and Lauren came over to help me out with dinner. Everyone I invited knew who he was except for me, which was cool. I was well informed by the time he arrived. šŸ˜‰

Some of you have asked me when is the truck coming back, some of you have asked how can you help bring the truck back. Well I didn’t realize how serious you guys were about helping to keep the vegan foodtruck alive until I got an anonymous donation of $500 bucks. The donor asked that you guys help out as well by matching that generous donation. Donations can be sent via PayPal or by snail mail to our PO Box in whatever increments you feel comfortable with. We will also be accepting hugs, vegan chocolate and smiles. I was thinking hard about starting a kickstarter campaign when this check arrived in the mail. Kismet? We can certainly start right here and right now. This is just one of the many ways to support your local and small businesses.

Thank you so much for supporting Ste Martaen, this is just the beginning!

Peace & Blessings,

    Laviyah that was SUCH a fun night and thanks so much for inviting me to your house! The food was delicious and I’m glad I got to help with the Swiss Chard dish! I’m so happy about the $500 donation but you truly deserve it for all of your hard work, friendliness, and community building!

    I had such a lovely time. Thanks again for having me over! I didn’t realize you didn’t have any of the food!!! I feel like such a fatass for taking home leftovers. I apologize. =( I’ll make it up to you by feeding you lots of food when you come over!

    Everyone, donate to Ste Martaen — wonderful company and wonderful people!
