Why the sad face, Boe? Oh, yes, somehow another VeganMofo has come to an end… (What? It actually ended a week ago? Good thing time is meaningless for this party!) This year I finished October having completed 23 posts – my best track record with MoFo so far! As usual, it was an exciting month. I loved reading the posts of bloggers from all over the globe. The creativity was off the charts. My Pinterest board is bursting at its virtual seams, just aching to make some of the deliciousness I found over the month. After a sigh and a nap, we can all go back to brainstorming themes for next year!
It can be scary to say goodbye, but before we do that, let’s give one last look to the final dinner party in my month of themed dinner parties. Yesterday I offered two drink ideas for a Doctor Who themed evening – a Sonic Screwdriver and a Bloody Mara.For appetizers, party guests can dine on the vegan’s version of fish fingers and custard (without fish and without custard). It’s breaded hearts of palm and avocado dip.
For the main course, bow tie pasta salad. (You know bow ties are cool, right?) On a Doctor Who fan site, some fellow Whovians noted that the little tomato halves look like tiny fezzes. (Hey, those are cool too!) I also realized afterwards that if only I’d put faces onto the blocks of tofu, they’d be shoe-ins for Adipose. Ah, well. Next time!
An easy, kid-friendly option for the meal is Peanut Butter & Jelly Baby Sandwiches with peanut butter slathered celery. (I hadn’t had peanut butter on celery for a long time, and I know it’s simple, but it sure is tasty! There’s a reason it’s a classic.)
Finally, for dessert – a chocolate soufflé that even a hate-filled Dalek would love.If you’re feeling less inclined to bake, why not steal an option out of the Wizard of Oz party playbook and serve heart-shaped watermelon slices. Of course, each guest will need two!
Thanks again for tuning in to this month of themed dinner parties! It’s been a blast!
