Man, time really flies! How is it possible that we’ve reached the end of another Vegan MoFo? It’s time to make like a tree and get out of here. I just need my husband Doc to harness the electricity from a lightening bolt, and I’m on my way back to good old 2013.
But before I go, let’s take a look back at all of the times and places we’ve been… (If you want to read more about a dish, simply click on the name or picture!)
I went to 1986 to share polenta with an artichoke topping family-style…And to 1987 for everyone’s favorite sandwich made with chocolate chip cookies and frosting – the Double Doozie.We ventured to 1991 for fried Puffy Nachos covered in spicy black beans and creamy vegan queso, as inspired by the nachos I used to get at our local taco spot, Tasty Tacos.
In the year 2000 I noshed on breakfast burritos stuffed with a tofu scramble and bacon seitan in remembrance of my old touring children’s theatre days when taquerias with early hours were the best surprise.
In 2003 I had a hydrating glass of freshly squeezed orange juice and enjoyed the simplicity of sweet memories with my best friend.
In 2005 I snacked on seitan bacon wrapped dates, stuffed with cashew cheese. They were a vegan version of the appetizer I used to get at Fatty’s in Eagle Rock, which I just learned closed its doors for good this past weekend. (Thank goodness I still have the time machine on lease!)
And finally, in 2009 I enjoyed a healthy helping of tofu barley bowls with kale chips that were inspired by a favorite of mine at Flore Vegan Restaurant in Los Angeles.
I also ventured across North America for The V List. For these video interviews I met with David in Iowa, Ketty and Becky in Georgia, Jackie and Kristy in California, Sarah in Washington, and Lisa in Toronto, Ontario. (Click on their names to see their video interviews, or see them all in one place on the video page.)
I want to thank all of the interviewees who took part in The V List and shared their time and talents. Thank you to my husband, David, who works for a living shooting and editing videos and then came home to spend his nights and weekends doing the same with me for Vegan MoFo. I really couldn’t have done it without him. (Plus, he even agreed to dressing up as Doc in our Back to the Future-inspired movie pictures. Now that’s a good man!) Finally, thank you to everyone who has read or commented this month. Getting to connect with all of you is what makes this yearly tradition so sweet!
I’ll see you in the future!
