NVS Potluck featuring Isa making waffles and puppies

To begin, NVS stands for Nebraska Vegetarian Society, a group that holds potlucks for vegetarians, vegans and the veg-curious. January's NVS potluck was a combination of potluck, bake sale for Town and Country Humane Society and a cooking demonstration by the lovely Isa Chandra Moskowitz.

Potluck standouts included vegan quesadillas and a spaghetti-rice pasta bake, but there was plenty (two tables worth) of other delicious food to be had. Unfortunately, I was too busy stuffing my face to take any pictures. But really, how can pictures of my packed potluck plate compare to puppies? Over $300 was raised for Town and Country, as well as several instances of interest in adoption for our furry guests of honor.

Our other guest of honor, Isa, gave a cooking demonstration on waffles. Considering that I've never made waffles before, I definitely found it informative, as well as entertaining. You can watch clips of it here and here. Sorry about moving the camera a little, my arms got tired. I did my best not to induce motion sickness.

I love going to NVS events and seeing people come together to enjoy cruelty-free food, as well as watching the organization grow. Veganism and vegetarianism have both come a long way since I stopped eating meat and it is always rewarding to see so many people getting involved with these movements in my home state.
