a lesson in veganmofo

A month later, a post for every weekday (and some extras for Vida Vegan, Vegan Things I Like, and Get Sconed!), so what have I learned?

Have fun with it.

I’d read that people were stressing out, that life got in the way and they were having a hard time posting every day—that’s hardly the point of it! It’s a celebration of vegan food. Celebration’s a good thing. I think folks were intimidated by some of the crazy-pro MoFo’ers, with their amazingly planned menus and themes. There’s something to be said for the blogger who posts a photo of their work lunch every day, be it leftover fried rice, a gorgeous sandwich, or a cup o’ soup.That’s valid.

Sometimes your muffins will be flat, sometimes you’ll get sick and won’t be able to post, sometimes you form your croquettes and ask Tom to put them in the fridge but he puts them in the freezer instead and then they fall apart when you try to fry them. These things will happen. But you suck it up and either post about your failure or come up with something else.

Yup, that’s what I did tonight. I made a cake for Halloween. It is far from perfect, and I am far from caring. It’s 10:30 pm and we just finished frosting it. Now I have to eat a piece…which means I’ll be up for hours! Or maybe I should eat more so I run around and then crash, then Tom can just throw a blanket over me.

Anyway, here’s my John Wayne Gacy cake. (Maybe you grew up in New England and were told tales of the Founding Fathers; I’m from the Midwest—we had serial killers.) Happy Halloween, and Happy VeganMoFo!
