Well, I didn't explore the vegan options up around Barnard like I thought I might because it was cold walking around, I spent more time than I'd thought at the event, and there's not a ton up there but...as it turns out, I'd rather spend my dough on rad zines instead.
Some shots from the day:
one of the few (I seriously held back) zines I got - this is VANITAS, a poetry zine, with a HAG patch.
But anyway, I thought I'd keep the zine love flowing this week anyway and make a couple recipes from the food zines I have. Claryn at Hell Yeah it's Vegan! sent me a zine package back in October, I've won some of Amey's, and picked a couple others up here and there.
Anyway, today I made two dishes from The Frugal Vegan's Harvest & Holiday Survival Guide II:
Ethiopian Vegetable Stew:
I also baked Cinnamon Bread, a sweet loaf in the zine:
Standard simple loaf with ingredients most vegans already have in their pantry. It smelled great while cooking. I haven't tried it yet but am excited to.
I also made a recipe from Amey's Christmas 2010 zine. She puts one together every year from favorite recipes she's made and includes sweet little cartoons.
This is Israeli Couscous Salad:
I'm so happy to be using these food zines. Slick vegan cookbooks are obviously beautiful and introduce us to inventive meals and flavors, and I love them as much as anyone else. But zines speak to my punk rock DIY heart, which I think is one of the things really at the true core of veganism. They are also so much more personable. From a self-interested perspective, I love to see other people's food zines and compare and contrast them with my own.
Speaking of, oh yeah! I make a vegan food zine, Marmalade Umlaut :) You can find a link to buy some on the right side bar; I also do trades! But anyway, thanks to Barnard and the organizers and tablers at the feminist zinefest. It was awesome and inspiring to see everyone. I'm currently working on a new issue of my zine... I'll keep ya posted for when it's out.
What's a punk/vegan/ziney/feminist post without a photo of a cat?
