Vegan mofo has dawned. Oh my. Twenty days of consistent vegan related posts every day for the month of September.
Am I prepared? Not so much. I have three recipes ready to go and that's very good. And I have a theme idea. Also very good.
Last year I was so prepared. I had a list of all twenty posts and ideas on how to double up on some parts of some recipes so I didn't have to reinvent the wheel every time I posted.
This year feels oh so unprepared. I am going to do a dual focused approach. I'll share protein rich Vegan options, factoids about Vegan proteins, and Americana style recipes. If it's in the red and white cookbook, social media, at county fairs, potlucks, mom and pop style restaurants, I'm game to take it on and Veganize it.
Seat of the pants style. Yee haw!!!
Planned: Vegan "Peanut Butter Cup" haystacks ala Facebook/Pinterest. Amazing burgers...really amazing actually. Walking Tacos, Tater Skins and a twist on the ol' potato salad.
Change. I've learned to embrace it, ride it out til the end. Sometimes I'm kicking and screaming, other times weeping with my eyes clinched tight. Once in awhile I ride like a dog in a car, head out the window snorting what life has to offer. Mother to young adult children, a marriage of thirty years, and a desert to mountain to valley waltz with God have shaped me into someone I never imagined I'd be. Life is short and I want to live it. Tears, sighs, laughter and change. Every morsel granted to me. Scrambled, shaken or stirred.
