Tamales and tacos and cupcakes, oh my!
Mark and I have spent our last two weekends performing at Four Winds Faire in Tyler, TX. This means I've been eating a lot of vegan bars (Cliff, Luna, ProBar, Lara, etc.) and the occasional batch of sweet potato tots from Sonic. Yesterday, we had our first performance with La Fenice at Whip In, doing a commedia del arte show called Sloop of the Damned. Since we're doing another show tonight (and Mark and I are doing our steampunk music set after!), we decided to play hooky from Four Winds today. This morning we visited the Sunset Valley Farmer's Market for breakfast. I had a sweet potato and a tempeh breakfast taco from Happy Vegan Baker as well as a tiny cappuccino cupcake, and a nopalitos tamale and spinach and onions tamale from The Gardener's Feast. I was sad that I didn't have any room left over for the vegan pakoras down the way. The tacos and tamales were all fresh, hot, and flavorful. Unfortunately, I didn't get any pictures, since it was very windy and I was trying to keep all of the napkins and other stuff from flying off the table.
