This will be my first year participating in VeganMoFo, and the third year of its existence. Kittee over at Cake Maker to the Stars has the lowdown and HUGE list of this year’s participants, but basically it means I will be blogging every weekday (at least) for the month of October about vegan food, which is, obviously, my very favorite kind! Expect lots of what-I-ate-today, recipes and ideas, new zine experiments, health-related and general rambling posts. Also I’m planning a mini-series on green smoothies and how they’re my favorite thing, oh, EVER! See?
I’m excited and a bit nervous, as I’ve never committed to blogging this much before, but I’m really hoping it will give me a big kick in the pants to get back to some regular blogging even after all is said and done. How I will be able to live my life NOT in front of my computer in October is a bit of a daunting concept, but I’m going to try and find some balance.
Just in time for October, we’ve finally got some real fall weather here in Minnesota! So tonight I made my first attempt at an idea I have for the zine #2: Balsamic Kale and Pecan Stuffed Sweet Potatoes.
It turned out pretty well, and my special ladyfriend approved, but I’m gonna see how a couple things can be switched up a little the next time I make it. It seems that ideas for the new zine are centered around mini-obsessions with particular ingredients: ooh! sweet potatoes! or yum! pumpkin seeds! I hope that’s a good thing, and doesn’t end up being the how-many-dishes-can-she-make-with-the-same-three-ingredients-cookzine. Well, it is just the start of figuring out some ideas, after all.
Also, sometime during the early part of VeganMoFo aka October, I’ll be moving this blog to a new domain, so fingers crossed that will go over smoothly. I’ve noticed a lot of vegan people are moving to their own domains soon, which I think is pretty fancy and special! This will help me clean out some old crap, get a little more organized, and have some more creative control over my little “internet baby.” My good and talented friend Elliot is helping me out with all the technical stuff, so he deserves all the praise when it happens And lots of vegan treats, which he is kindly accepting in exchange for his work.
I’m up too late for my own good tonight, so I will leave things at that. Hope you are all well, and getting ready for vegan food overload next month!
