Vegan Mofo V Day 1: It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Yearrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
I thought I was excited about my first round last night until I found this at Trader Joe's today! I brought home two more that were just about the same size. I am not usually a "bigger is better" gal when it comes to fruit, but these were too tempting to pass up. Since these are larger than the ones I would normally buy, I shared with a friend, a.k.a. my dog Penny.
This isn't a great beginning for MoFo, but it will get better. I did not go to the grocery store at all last week and the baking I had planned for last night/this morning was cancelled due to a last minute job test I had (cross your fingers!). I have ideas for theme weeks, not as creative as some others but there will be more structure than I've had in MoFo's past. Here are some ideas you just might see:
*All The Single Ladies (and mens): recipes for one/two people from Vegan Bites or Table for Two
*"Stuff I Always Say I'm Going to Make, but Haven't Yet": potpies, tofu benny, crepes (my fear of flipping)and whatever other requests I keep putting off
*Magazine Week: finally making the recipes I have torn or cut out and carefully filed in binders, where they still sit unused
*Dreams Come True Week: things I really miss that others have veganized for me (I love you!)- most likely Ctate's Pan Dulce, Julie Hasson's pastrami seitan, house vegan's Daiya Not Cheezits, donuts, etc.
Or it could be totally half assed and by the seat of my pants like the last two years, stay tuned! There are so many other (better) bloggers participating so please check them out as well!
