VeganMoFo 2013!

July 22nd, 2013 9:16 am by Kelly Garbato

Have you all heard the news? VeganMoFo (7th annual!) is going down in September this year. That’s just 42 days away!

I’m actually kind of bummed at the scheduling change – I had wanted to do a His Dark Materials theme this year, but I don’t think I’ll be up to the challenge so soon after Ralphie and Kaylee’s deaths. My heart’s just not in it, and it’s pretty much impossible to spread enthusiasm when you’re totally lacking it yourself. That’s one of my goals – bring more fellow vegans into the Sraffie fold – and it requires a lot more than just cooking tasty meals. Like, relating them to characters and plot points and major themes. Brainy stuff. And sadly my mind feels like a giant bowl of mashed potatoes as of late. Delicious, cheesy cheddar mashed potatoes (eating my feelings over here!), but mashed potatoes just the same.

Still, I hate to miss it entirely – to date I’ve participated all but the first year – so I’ll probably do something less intellectual. I’m thinking an alphabet theme? That shouldn’t be too tough to pull off. Or if I’m feeling especially lazy, maybe I’ll just do a daily food diary. But I’m afraid that theme will bore everyone to tears: breakfast, bran flakes with apples slices; lunch: last night’s leftovers; dinner: pasta or pizza. Rinse, repeat. Not terribly exciting.

How about you guys? Anyone planning on mofo’ing in 2013? Themes? Menus? Miscellany? (Don’t worry, I’m not looking to crib – just curious!)

(Just to be clear – and in case any of the VMF goddesses are reading this – I understand why they decided to try on a different month this time around: better light, more inclusive, different seasonal foods, etc. – and normally I’d love it. This year, though…this year just kicked my ass. Truth is, I was having doubts about my ability to write a month’s worth of HDM posts even when I thought VMF would be in October or even November. So probably it doesn’t even matter. Pity party for one!)

    I understand you’re not up to writing a lot this year. I’m still so sorry for you… It’s hard to lose such great friends.

    I’m a little bummed it’s in September too, it’s always such a busy month. But, like you say, it gives you different seasonal foods and more of a summer spirit than October ;-)
    I wouldn’t mind seeing daily food diarys though, I can’t help but love them.
