This post has two purposes. I’m saving my creative, Halloween-y post for tomorrow (obviously), so today I am going to share some news that I’ve been withholding for a while. But first, cheeze.
Remember how much I enjoyed VeganYumYum’s Mac & Cheese last week? Well, I’ve been craving something creamy and warm and cheezy ever since, so today I cobbled together my own version of a cheeze sauce. It’s basically a big ol’ mess of EB, soy milk, nutritional yeast, a bit o’ flour, tahini, and various spices. Simple and totally awesome after taking a baking stint in the oven for 15ish minutes. It definitely hit the spot, and I’ve got leftovers for tomorrow, so I’m golden.
My bit o’ news is actually cheese-related, so here it goes – I got a job! I’m going to be a tech writer at a medical software company in Madison, Wisconsin! I’ll be moving out there in December and joining the land of the cheeseheads in America’s Dairyland. Kind of ironic, huh? I go vegan and then I go to Wisco. Heh. But I can’t really complain; it’s a full-time job with good benefits at a good company, and I’m going to need the moneyz once my student loans are no longer in their oh-so-wonderful grace period and I need to start repaying those suckers. So – any Madtown vegans in the house? Or, any recommendations for awesome places to eat in Madison? I’m excited because it’s a much bigger city than my hometown and my college town, so hopefully I’ll get to meet ~*~real live vegans~*~ and dine at ~*~real live vegan restaurants!~*~ Haha. Seriously though, if you’ve got any suggestions, let me know. :)
Ciao ’til the LAST DAY OF MOFO. Aahhh!

You are going to love Madison! It is a super cool city with a very cool vibe. Congrats!
Congrats! If you are moving to the dairyland (I know how that feels, I was born and raised in Germany’s dairyland), teach them all how to make wonderful vegan mac and cheese. :)
Congrats on the job! Actually, Madison is a VERY vegan-friendly city! It’s a university town, so that gives it part of its energy, but the people there are just really laid back, friendly, open-minded, etc. Also, Madison has one of the BEST farmer’s markets I’ve ever been to. On Saturdays (not in winter, of course), it’s set up around the entire capital building…YUMM!
That mac and cheese DOES look… haunting. Congratulations! Congratulations on the job, too. :)
