Vegan MoFo, Day 31: HALLOWEEN! (part 1)

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

I’ve talked about our Birthoween parties both here and on Instagram, and for this final MoFo Halloween prompt, I’m going to show you what I made for this year’s Birthoween party, which we threw this past Friday.

Monster snot! (Spooky queso with black beans, black olives, and home-canned rotel – and boo chips.)

Vegan MoFo, Day 25, Cook for your Best Friend

When I was a teenager, my mom hung a cross-stitch on the wall that read “Happiness is being married to your best friend.” I thought it was so cheesy at the time (get it, it’s cheese week, haha!), but it turns out that little piece of craft work had it all figured out. Being married to your best friend is really amazing. We love to spend time together, and it doesn’t matter what we’re doing, it’s always so much better together. Continue reading

All stories are better if you read them in Sophia Petrillo’s voice

Our intrepid bloggers have been dating for just four weeks. Everything is new. Everything is terrifying. Despite the anxiety, Mike doubles down on the terror and invites Sarra to his house for a home cooked meal. Now, you have to keep in mind that at this time, Mike was still an omnivore. So, what does an omnivore that is falling madly in love with a vegan do about cooking dinner? Well, in this case, he selects the most easily veganizable dish he can think of!

Vegan MoFo Day 12 – Grocery Store Tips and Tricks

Hi, All! Well, this prompt is a pretty easy one for us. We really only have one grocery store tip to share – visit your local vegan grocery! Here in Seattle, we are so fortunate to have access to Vegan Haven, a volunteer-run, non-profit, all-vegan grocery store. It’s such a wonderful feeling to be in a store knowing that you don’t have to check every label for animal products.

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?
