Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (Friday Food)

November 19th, 2010 6:31 pm by Kelly Garbato

Another week, another veganmofo wrap-up! Entering the home stretch, I cannot adequately express the sense of relief that comes from having started my mofo blogging a month in advance. Because, lemme tell you something – I’m 26.5 posts down with 3.5 left to go (the .5 being a book review that’s 99% finished, but just needs a quick spit & shine before publication), and I am forking exhausted. As in, ready for an 18-hour nap followed by a week-long vacation. And I haven’t even done that much cooking!

Miscellany

‘Twas the week in which the MEAT CAKE! dominated veganmofo. To wit: check out these beautiful monstrosities from Mo @ Mo Betta Vegan and Janet @ vegansaurus! Laugh or cry? You tell me, folks. You tell me.

(Yes, that was a link to a “meat” pie that I posted earlier; and no, I’m not losing my mind. Maybe I just find the idea of a vertically-challenged “meat” dessert easier to wrap my head around? Fewer layers, at least. Less food mixage. Food mixage, no like.)

Also – and I know it’s still a little early to be thinking about x-mas, but – gift ideas from I Eat Trees!

Marla at Vegan Feminist Agitator has been blogging tips for World Vegan Month all November. You should totes check it out!

Last but not least, Isa is reminiscing about the five cookbooks that changed her life. If, like me, you’re old enough to remember the ’90s with some fondness, you’ll get a real kick out of this!: Cookbooks That Changed My Life: Soy Not Oi! (Part 2) and Cookbooks That Changed My Life: Tofu Cookery (Part 1)

Share those links if you got ‘em, mofos!

    There are so many delicious recipes to try and so little time! I know what you mean about being exhausted…it does feel like I’m running a marathon.

    Oh, I hear you. I am so glad I stockpiled posts in October. And yet! I’m going home for Thanksgiving, I have to do the giveaways every day, and I don’t have any more posts stockpiled! AI! It’s equal parts fun, excitement, and yikes! Anyway, thank you so much for including my twice-baked colcannon in your round-up. Please come enter giveaways. There is lots of stuff!
