VeganMoFo - i know i'm late!
I am always late. no matter what i do i am late. VeganMoFo is no exception.
If you have no idea what i am rambling about, check out Isa's post about it; http://theppk.com/blog/2008/09/16/veganmofo-is-upon-us/#more-520
there is no need to add more.
so now that we are clear on what VeganMoFo is, i want to tell you why i am late. because i am so damn busy! i have been working hard, and things are crazy busy. but i am here now. don't you worry.
i have been a bit boring about food lately. it must be the stress from living on the couch with a huge pile of boxes with stuff that have no place to go. and the fact that we don't have an oven, but anyway, this lazyness and boredom makes me not cook as much as usual. which can be a bit of a problem, when teaching people about cooking is what i do for a living.
but last thursday i had the greatest day at work, cooking a nice curry with cauliflower, potato, onions, garlic, kale, coconutmilk and a home blended curry. served over basmati rice, with a nice homemade chapati, and homemade apple chutney + a dollop of soy yoghurt, and people were raving. there were so many people coming to eat, that some of them had to stand up while eating. the soupkitchen project is amazing, and we're having so much fun. and some of the girls who were helping, made an apple pie, that was really good.
unfortunately, the dishwasher broke, and we had to do a ton of dishes by hand, but people had lots of fun anyway, and it was a great night.
food is awesome, cause it brings people together, and makes them talk. i really like that.
i have no idea what the point of this story is, exept being a story. but i like it anyway. maybe it is mainly being posted for my own rememberence. i don't know. i am sick and have had nothing but oatmeal, sandwiches with soy cream cheese and soy yoghurt today. i get wierd when i have nothing but breakfast foods. i guess i just wanted you all to know that i haven't forgotten you or VeganMoFo.
oh, and i am excited to read your posts throughout the month! happy VeganMoFo!
