In case you missed it, earlier this week Ecorazzi announced that we would be taking part in the Sierra Club’s (our charity of the month) Lightbulbs To Leadership campaign. As part of the campaign, the Sierra Club was asking people to hold dinner parties on July 17th to “speak up for bold, urgent, and serious action on global warming.”
Well July 17th was last night and Ecorazzi totally represented! Not only were hundreds (about 300 to be exact) of people hosting dinner parties for a great cause, but we all joined a conference call at 7:30 and listened to some fascinating speakers talk about the perils global warming.
Right now I’m away from NYC in Tampa (my hometown) for a little rest and relaxation, and so I used the opportunity to get together with some of my favorite down south friends for a night of delicious vegan food and global warming chit chat.
My friends Amanda and John wanted to exercise their vegan cooking skills and made a super delicious stuffed mushroom for the entree. We also noshed on crisp salad, fresh baked bread, rice pilaf and delicious wine. I was planning on preparing a batch of my famous peanut butter chocolate, coconut rice krispy treats, but I ended up getting locked out of my house and car for about an hour and a half (long story) and so dessert was put on hold. Thank you locksmith for getting me back in!
Rice krispy treats aside, the party was a success and not only did I get to spend time with a few of my favorite people who I rarely get to see, but I also had the chance to participate in a great campaign with a goggle of like-minded people all around the country. So a big thanks to the Sierra Club for all their hard work and to all you guys who helped take part in the event. Check out some pictures from my party below. Isn’t Maddy the most adorable six-year-old EVER?!
