Vegan MoFo, Day 6 – Comfort Food

Well, we’re still a day behind here, but we don’t want to stop bringing you our adventures in delicious food. Today’s topic – comfort food. Sarra was raised in Texas, while I grew up in New York, so we both have different (but equally firm) ideas of what comfort food is. To Sarra, nothing is more comforting than a plate of gravy-soaked carbs and fat, but I usually just want to stick a large quantity of “meat” in between a couple of slices of bread.

Vegan MoFo, Day 5 – Late Night Snack

Late nights are for easy, satisfying snacks. When we’re out of steam after a long day and we’re relaxing at home in front of the television, we crave the comforting, carbohydrate and fat laden treats of our childhoods, but lack the energy to spend a whole lot of time in the kitchen. What’s a vegan to do?

Vegan MoFo, Day 4 – Eating Out

It’s Sunday evening, and I’m trying to catch up on the last few days of MoFo. We had it all planned out, but life has been hectic!

It’s time to talk about Thursday nights! For the last few months, we’ve been having Thursday night date night. Date night is the best! Here in Seattle, we have tons and tons of wonderful vegan options, but we definitely have our favorites, and we love our traditions, so we follow the same pattern every Thursday.

Our Honeymoon, Part 1

We started our honeymoon (Mike calls it our agavemoon; I am calling it our eatingmoon because it is all about food) over the weekend. We went down to Portland on Friday so we could attend the Vegan Beer & Food Festival on Saturday.

We Got Married!

Sorry for vanishing, friends, but we got married! On Sunday! Things are only just starting to get back to normal, and that’s only going to be for the next day or two, since we leave on our mini-moon on Friday. I thought we’d be able to MoFo right up until the wedding – having never had a big wedding (my first wedding was basically an elopement, barefoot on the beach), I was terribly naive, clearly – but everything got very hectic about a week before, and the wheels just came off the MoFo bus.

Don’t give up on us, though, because we’ll be trying to blog while we’re eating our way through Austin, and we’ll be back to cooking and blogging regularly in October.  And of course we want to write up a post about the wedding – and the FOOD at the wedding – sometime soon. We miss blogging, and we miss y’all, and we really miss the community we’ve found this month.

Mike’s face here, y’all. No matter how many times I look at it, it takes my breath away.

If you’re on Instagram, check #blatchwedding2015 (not our real last name) for some of the photos our friends took and shared!

P.S. Speaking of Austin, who’s there and wants to meet up for drinks and/or food and/or bats and/or whatever?
