All Good Things Must Come to an End...

And so it is with the "Food for Thought" Radio program. I am sad to announce that THIS Sunday, March 25, 2012 will be the last official broadcast of "Food for Thought." Due to increased demands in our personal life, "Vegan" Linda and I must discontinue our volunteer work at radio station WEFT 90.1 FM, Champaign, IL. I have had a radio program (Jazz, Blues, Music of India, Soul, "Country" & Bluegrass, Grateful Dead Hour, and public affairs) continuosly since 1989 and this will indeed be a sad farewell.

So please take the opportunity to join us this Sunday from 3-4 PM CST when we wrap it up with "Vegan" Linda, "Meat-free" Mike, Rachel Weber, Guests from the Decatur, IL "Kind Life Club," a Common Ground Food Co-op "Common Ground Corner," Music from Dada Veda, and much more.

On a more positive note, we hope to archive past "Food for Thought" programs on this blog.

And Now, Vegan Poetry Lovers...

Well boys and girls, I got the itch to write Haiku in honor of my favorite place to grab a burger in days gone by. Look for more creativity in the days to come from your FFT Radio team - "Home for a Whopper!" - "Meat-free" Mike :)

Show Notes for January 15, 2012

Today's show featured a special guest: Rachel's son, Lance. With Vegan Linda, they discussed what Lance likes to take in his lunchbox to first grade (PB&J), and his favorite fruits and vegetables (apples, green beans, and kale).

Rachel brought some rapidly-disappearing Vegan Spinach Balls to the last meeting of the Vegan Meetup Group on Friday. The link above goes to the recipe.

Eric brought a delicious Double Corn Cornbread from the Jazzy Vegetarian website to the Meetup, made with banana. (Scroll down the page for the recipe.)

Linda's many offerings included a Corn Chowder from Robin Roberts' Quick-Fix Vegan cookbook.

And speaking of cookbooks, if you're looking for a new recipe or two, check out the Urbana Free Library. They have a brochure highlighting several vegan and vegetarian cookbooks from their large selection. There's also a list of local veg-friendly resources.

We hope you'll tune in next week, when Meat-Free Mike will join and Rachel, who's scheduled to bring you a report on the newest vegetable she's trying: turnips.
