Yay! My b/f, two other friends and I are going to the Farm Sanctuary for the hoe down. We're going to go there early to set up camp. My two other friends are omnivores and my b/f has converted to vegetarian. He is going to slowly transition to a vegan. We've made food and other needs for the trip. I've tried making lemongrass essential oil but it smells sweet so I don't know if I made it correctly.
Since there will be no showers for the campers, I made my own body wipes/baby wipes. Here's the recipe.
Vegan Baby/Body Wipes
2 Cup Warm Water
2 Tbsp Tea Tree Oil Castile Soup [You might want to use something less foamy]
2 Tbsp Aloe Vera Gel
1 Tsp Baking Soda or 3/4 Tsp Vinegar
Few Drops of Fragrance or Essential Oil
30 sheets of Basic Bounty [Not sure if regular bounty will absorb more so just experiment]
- Mix all the ingredients in the order listed in a plastic ziploc bag or a tupperware except for the paper towels.
- Swish the liquid ingredients around.
- Put the paper towels in the liquid and make sure all the paper absorbs the liquid. Check to see if the middle is still dried or not.
Tea tree oil - It is claimed to be good for acne, blackheads and repelling mosquitoes. It fight against certain bacteria and fungi.
Aloe Vera Gel - It is claimed to moisturize and sooth skin.
Baking Soda - It cleans, deodorizes, relieve itches and sooths the skin
Apple Cider Vinegar - It's also very similar to tea tree oil. It's good against rashes, sores, insect bites, acne, poison ivy and poison oak.

Hot Chili Recipe from Vegan with a Vengeance
I used TVP instead. I had my TVP stored in my cupboard for more than half a year but my main reason is because I'm too lazy to make seitan. I realized I didn't have beans so I had to rollerblade to the grocery store to get some BEEEAAANN. I haven't rollerbladed in years, so I was the crazy girl wobbling down the sidewalk trying to kill people. The hot chili will be heated up in the camp fire on a nice hot summery day so we can sweat like crazy as we get bitten by mosquito. Isn't that a the life.
Kick Ass Carrot Cupcake from Recipezaar
It's called the Eggless Vegan Carrot Cake Cupcake. We made it early this week but my b/f forgot the sugar so we ate it as is but it tasted great without the sugar too because of the spices. I think it would taste great as a savory cupcake. Hahahah. It was actually more like a muffin.
