I got my Vegan Swap package on Monday, and it is glorious! I am the winner.

What I saw
The first glimpse of the amazingness in store…

All neatly tucked in
All I saw at first was the chocolate. And all I could say to that was THIS WOMAN KNOWS ME WELL.

Hello chocolate my old friend
They get their own photograph because, well, they’re just so amazing. Vegan chocolate, good vegan chocolate, is hard to find in cookie form.

Card and Teas
And the tea! Three kinds of amazing, life giving tea. I’m jumping into the Peppermint today.

For Great Health Victory!
My favorite way to combat the evil winter viruses. Virae? Viri? What’s the plural?

Faux jerky
You probably don’t know about this stuff if you’re not vegetarian or vegan. And therefore, you are missing out on something brilliant. Seitan jerky, this one in Thai Peanut flavor. I barely got a picture of this before I snarfed it down.

They're matches
Matches, to go with the candle found in the magic yarn ball. Sitting on the pretty card.

Yellow and Blue
And the prettiest yarn ever. Blue Sky cotton, in very cheerful colors.

What was in the Magic Ball?
Damn, this turned out a little blurry. Sorry! The magic yarn ball included: A ruler, a chocolate bar, a row counter, darning needles, stitch markers and a yummy-smelling candle!

(Also included in the package, but not really shown, are bunches of vegan recipes, one of which NinjaHusband and I tried on Monday night. Vegan fried “chicken”? Tasty-good, and amazingly [almost disturbingly] close to the original. Minus the veins and gristle and death.)

My amazing Swap Angel was Sweatea of Kith and Kin, and she did a most fantastic job. THANK YOU, Sweatea! You made my month!
