I’ve Gotta Stop Going to Vx
As I announced on Twitter and Facebook a couple of weeks ago, I now work at the only fully vegan bakery in all of big, bad London, Ms Cupcake! About once a week I’ll get sent to deliver a special order of cakes and treats to Vx, the fully vegan shop near King’s Cross.
“What?!” you’re probably thinking. “Getting paid to visit a vegan shop?!?” Trust me, it’s nothing but trouble. Every time I go there I find something new to buy and I’m spending far too much money. Though, I’m sure the owner is not complaining.
The last time I went I found paprika tofu slices and vegan garlic mayo. This could only mean one thing, friends: SANDWICH TIME!
I stopped by the local Tesco on Caledonia Rd and picked up some fresh veggies. Nothing too exciting, just tomatoes and (erlack, the only type available) iceberg lettuce. I got it all home and started building.
I heated my tofu slices. There were far too many but I didn’t have any form of storage. What can you do? Eat them all, of course. They were actually quite good.
Who’s up for some garlic mayo?
Let’s make sandwiches.
While it is a bummer that all of my tried and tested North American brands of vegan convenience foods are not available in the UK, there are also tonnes of new ones available to me now that aren’t carried on my home continent. New discoveries to make!
If you haven’t taken a little vissy to Vx yet in your life I suggest you do it at the next possible opportunity.
