Oo, so many amazing ideas! I just wrote "Finnish seasonal dishes" to the theme question. That might be a bit boring since it's pretty much the theme of my whole blog, but then again, it its my first time. I might have tightened that up a bit with descriptions like "straight from forest and field" or "very cheap meals", since that's pretty much what seasonal means this time of the year. Actually, I did considering doing a mushroom recipe every day, but It's the berry and harvest season as well.

If this one goes well I might try something more challenging on years to come. Like teaching myself to cook following a certain diet like low-carb or gluten-free baking. Introducing some favourite ingredient or a cook book might also be interesting. Or perhaps I'll blog about food aimed for children or (modernized versions of) dishes I consider old and traditional.

I actually AM doing this, but in German... and without a proper theme.

I don't think that's at all boring! I had kind of an awkward time trying to figure out how to eat in Finland so I am intrigued.

I do imagine that can be a bit tricky unless you know where to go. Average chain restaurant kitchens are perfectly willing to prepare you something vegan if you just ask, but if you'd like to have something more than steamed veggies and pasta, it's usually a good idea to look for places that look a bit hippie.

My theme for VeganMoFo is to try one new thing a day. Whether it be cooking with a new ingredient, a new snack from my Vegan Cuts box, new vegan shampoo, a new kitchen utensil… You get the idea. Some days will include recipes, others might not but follow along as I try 30 NEW things. New is different, different can be scary, so I’m going to try and go outside my comfort zone.

Great idea. What's your blog?

Sorry, ppkers - I can't make it this year. Too many papers to write (and basically a whole book to edit)! Promise to look in on what everyone's doing, though! Already clicking refresh on randomofo.com during one of my writing breaks! Miss you guys! <3

This will be my sixth (!) MoFo, and I'm currently thinking about revisiting classic hippie vegetarian cookbooks (Laurel's KItchen, Moosewood, The Vegetarian Epicure, etc.) and veganizing some of the old favorites I made when I was a teenager just learning to cook.


!!!

Desdemona, was I just blinded by the donut pans and missed this? Your posts are awesome!

Wheee so excited. I decided back in the spring to do as many mofo posts as I could veganizing things Monica et al. made on Friends, and now I see that TV Tuesday is one of the themes! Perfection.
(PS, OMG - How psyched am I to make the English Trifle/Shepherds Pie????)
I also have a lotttt of restaurant reviews to put up, so they'll take up the other days, for the most part.


I just want to thank you for your awesome posts about Friends food. Last night I ordered the "Cooking with Friends" book - even though I knew they wouldn't be recipes I could make without modifying them a lot. Then today I came across your blog posts. Reading the posts made me very happy this afternoon! And of course I am going to try the recipes you developed. :)
