This is my first year (yaaayy), so I'm kind of playing it by ear. I'm loving the threads to sike me up for it (love all of the enthusiasm and ideas!!), and as of now am mainly planning on blogging recipes and meal ideas. Excited to see everyone's posts!

I'm permanently thinking about and researching for my first mofo project and I decided to go even further.
I'm going back to 1910 for one month.
I'm not going to dress up like 1910 or live without internet or something but I'm going to eat like a person living here in Düsseldorf in 1910 would eat but vegan.
That means the is no other fruit than apples, pears and quince and just local wintervegetables and stuff.
This also means no exotic fruit or vegetables, no pasta, no orange juice....
The only addition I'm going to make is food, that is going to be used as a substitude for meat and dairy products because it wouldn't be the real thing if i would leave out these stuff.
I want to cut down the amount of money I'm spending for food, because people didn't have a lot of money to spent for anything back in 1910.
I'm also going to make a hugher variety of dishes because I want to introduce lots of recipes and I'm not going to eat like mashed potatoes and carrots every day for one week but it should still fit the real thing so I'm just going to cook once a day and the rest is going to be like traditional bread with different spreads and toppings and may a snack of fresh fruit or vegetables.
Oh man, I'm so exited about this.

Last year I did a cookbook review every day. It was fun except for one of them. Oh well.

I won't have as much time this year but I'm going to do lots of things I like. Some of it will include vegan wine!

I was going to do traditional New England foods, the first week I might try to just post everything I make for my Halloween party because I am consumed with planning it right now to the exclusion of all else.

I'm going to tweet a daily pic of what I'm eating, because I'm all about doing the bare minimum.

I'm vegetarian though I do tend to eat mostly vegan anyway. I'm taking Mofo as an opportunity to eat & cook totally vegan for a month. Every day I'll be making a recipe I've never made before either from one of my various cookbooks or ones that I've found in blogs that I've been dying to try. Then I'll be taking pics of what I've made and pretending my flickr account is really a blog.

Hopefully I'm good at foodporn, because otherwise it's going to kind of suck.

Next year I want to try veganizing all my favorite recipes from Food & Drink magazine, which I cooked out of constantly before I went veg. I just thought that might be a little too ambitious this year.

i'll be doing my regular blogging about the meals i make for my family. this is my first time participating, i hope it's ok that i don't really have a "theme." i have been writing down ideas for some less ordinary meals, like making ethiopian food for the first time, or buying weird produce i've never used before and creating a dish out of it.

all retro-veg: cooking recipes from old vegetarian/vegan cookbooks

the oldest one i have is 1897, and i'll probably cut it off somewhere in the late 70s to very early 80s.

i've been doing some advance work since i will be on a business trip the first week in november, and i've been quite pleased with most of what we have tried so far. last night we had a meal from 10 Talents (1968 Adventist vegan book), which was amazingly delicious: millet-pumpkin seed patties with cashew gravy (gluten-free and soy-free, too).

My blog Rear View Vegetarian (http://rearviewvegetarian.blogspot.com - I know, cruddy name :( ) is less than a week old. No time like the present to join up with stuff like MOFO though!

It focuses exclusively on historical vegetarian (well, I cook vegan myself so all the recipes get to be vegan too) cookery. I 'review' pre-1980 cookbooks and post recipes 'tweaked' for contemporary cooks. So far I've looked at a book from 1977. The blog has only been operational a week!

My plan was to look at items/post recipes from the 19th century. I'm modifying it a bit though, not because a few others are doing something similar, but because dang did they love eggs in the 1800s. I'm not finding as many interesting vegan (or trivially veganizable) recipes as I'd like. I may have to ramble a bit to hit my desired post schedule. I may even try to figure out when tofu became associated with the counterculture more than with Asian expatriates.

I-40 vegan lives again!

I plan to post pictures of myself dressed up as the authors of Johnp's cookbooks.

Well, I have now subscribed to an assload of blogs.

This year is going to be comfort foods. Same as last year, apparently, because that is pretty much all I eat. This year there will be more than just sandwiches though! Although there will still be plenty of those!

The next Harry Potter movie comes out third week of November and I'm already buzzing like mad about it, so I'll definitely be making some HP-themed treats to bring along with my costume and everything.

Don't expect anything exciting over at the blog just yet, though. I took it down (as well as most of my internet life) earlier in the year in part because I was without a computer and internet for several months, and in part because I stopped eating vegan for various reasons and it felt hypocritical to blog under that name. Still, it's a good name, and it gives me a good excuse to make more vegan food again.

Pre-1980 is historical? I was born in 1965 so I must be downright ancient. Haha. Just kidding ya. :-)

JohnP ... I have Ten Talents and I love the bread recipes. I should take another look through it.

Some things I'm thinking of doing:
Cookie Testing for the holidays
Cookbook challenge of VWAV (I've gotten so many new cookbooks, that I feel like I've neglected that one! For example I JUST made Fronch Toast for the first time this past Saturday!!)
Fun with Smoothies
Fun with hummus flavors and combos (I've been on a hummus making kick lately)
Veganizing typical omni dishes - I've been requested to veganize carbonara and bolognese to start.
Backlog of food porn should (hopefully) fill in the rest

My blog is here: http://beckystastyplanet.blogspot.com/

Cookie Testing would be fun. Though if you made a batch every day you'd end up on a HUGE sugar high by the end of the month!

I don't have a full calendar, but I do have some ideas:
*Recreating some of my favorite restaurant meals
*Utilizing the many cookbooks I've purchased/received as gifts, but have never used
*Actually making some of the recipe ideas I have written down
*Restaurant visits
*Fancy Thanksgiving. We're actually going out of town, so maybe I'll cook a meal for just Carl and I, or I'll invite the family over for dinner.
*If all else fails, I'll post a collage of what I've eaten for the day. I might do this anyway, at the end of each post.
*Ingredients I didn't make much before going vegan, and how to prepare them. Kale, quinoa, tempeh, tofu, seitan, etc.
*Veganized childhood favorites.
*Using up stuff from my overstuffed pantry!

My blog is Luciana's Vegan Kitchen.
