Let's Do Lunch: Vegan Mofo 2011
Well, goodness. It's time for Vegan Mofo (AKA Vegan Month of Food) once again! The month where vegan food bloggers from across the globe post as much as they possibly can. And then everyone needs to have a big nap when it's all over.
Last year, some of you will remember, I chose "Comfort Food" as my theme and attempted to post every day of the month about some delicious, comforting vegan food item. It was an ambitious month and led to some of my favourite recipes I've ever created. Like Whiskey Apple Crisp. And Creamy Tofu Wild Rice Casserole.
This year my life is all ass-over-teakettle, what with us just having moved in with my parents. It means a new kitchen, a new rhythm of cooking, and a new daily schedule. It means commuting to and from work and juggling that travel with vet appointments, meetings with the people who are designing and building our house, and maybe some social engagements. In other words, my time in the kitchen has been curtailed.
So here's my theme. Lunch. Let's do lunch, Mofo-ers! I have to eat lunch every day, and lunches are eaten when it's light outside, and are consequently easier to photograph. Plus, I've been a bit of an idiot about my lunches lately, so I'd like to get back to making interesting and creative things to eat whether I'm at home, at the office, or working in the field*.
I'm also hoping to do some posts that will have me putting together lunch suggestions for friends who may need some new suggestions for their own mid-day meals. Stay tuned for that kind of cool stuff.
So, let's all gather around and put our hands together. Vegan Mofo on three.
ONE! TWO! THREE!
*FYI, I don't mean a literal field.
