The Hastings Environs and Rye Bay Vegans/Veggies group met yesterday for our occasional monthly vegan get-togethers. The theme of yesterday’s meal was the 1970s. So, the menu consisted of sausages and onions on sticks and pineapple and tofu on sticks, avocado and Thousand Island dressing as well as mushroom stroganoff, potatoes with dill and salad. The dessert was a delicious gluten-free Black Forest Gateau. All the food was yummy and vegan, which isn’t very 1970s but there you are. The hosts have three rescued cats, several rescue chickens and three rescued sheep. An enjoyable hot day with great company where none of us had to worry about what we were eating. Or what we said! Any vegans/veggies in the greater Hastings and Rye area interested in joining us, please contact Richard (01424 814895; firstname.lastname@example.org). Future events include a picnic on the East Hill, Saturday dinner, Sunday afternoon cream tea and scary food on Halloween.
