Alllllmost Vegan MoFo time!

It's almost MoFo time! Yay! Vegan Month of Food starts tomorrow and people from all over the world will be cooking, eating & blogging about vegan food as much as they can all month. The challenge is to aim to blog at least 5 days a week but last year I blogged every day & will be aiming to do that again this year.

Last year was my first Vegan MoFo and I really enjoyed participating in such a positive event. Last time I was away in Edinburgh for the first week of the month & in Paris for Paris Vegan Day at the end of the month; I have no trips planned this time around so it should be a little easier because I won't be attempting to write any of my blog posts on my phone!

Last year my most popular posts were during Cookbook Challenge week where I picked the name of a cookbook out of a metaphorical hat & used a random number generator to pick the recipes I'd be cooking that day. I discovered some great recipes this way so I'll be doing the same challenge this month on Mondays, Tuesdays & Wednesdays. This year I even have an actual hat! Here are some of last years highlights...

Learning to make stock from scratch. I'd never attempted this before last years MoFo & now it's something I do regularly.

Sparkled Ginger Cookies from Vegan With A Vengeance. I LOVE these cookies & they make fantastic Christmas gifts.

Apple Crumble from The Joy of Vegan Baking. This has become my go to crumble recipe! I would have passed this recipe by if it hadn't have been for the challenge.

When cookie recipes go wrong you can ask the PPK for help & them turn them into cake.

I really really enjoyed doing the cookbook challenge last year, I have far too many underused cookbooks & this is a really fun way to try some new recipes.

Here's my MoFo plan for this year...

Saturday - Random! Eating out, favourite products...whatever I'm feeling like that day!

Sunday - Football Foods. Cooking up some traditional North American cuisine & watching 'the game'!

Monday - Cookbook Challenge

Tuesday - Cookbook Challenge

Wednesday - Cookbook Challenge

Thursday - Random! Eating out, favourite products...whatever I'm feeling like that day!

Friday - New Foods. Foods I've been wanting to make for a while but that I've been too intimidated to try! Including Paella, Tamales, Bread & Pierogi.

Will you be taking part in the Vegan Month of Food this time around? What do you think of my plan? See you tomorrow!
