Hiiiiii and happy MoFo alla y'alls.
My theme this year is making September a month of eating and cooking with and for
friends. Previous Food Friends posts have always been my favorite. I have a lot of social anxiety, and so don't see people enough as I'd
like to. But being around other people gets me out of my own weird head, and helps me share and listen and learn and growww. I'm going to try to actually make the effort to host and cook either at my apartment, or their places if they prefer, or just grab some vegan food to eat together. Maybe there will be picnics, maybe there will be food field trips. I will also try to get some recipes from faraway friends to create, and they can be involved that way.
Also my brother (from CA!) and sister (from Spain!) are visiting this month and I plan on strong-arming them into a dinner party chez moi
(roommate to be consulted!!) so, like, maybe there will be that.
I am lucky enough to have a good amount of compassionate vegan friends to share food with, but there is also the idea that sharing delicious vegan food with non-vegan people is a good way to win some points for the team.
Other Food Friends posts here, here, here, and here.
Vegan penpal friends mail is the best mail:
Lunch with G (my best friend always, forever) at Bite recently:
Mediterranean Salad: Israeli salad, greens, hummus, eggplant, spicy roasted red pepper sauce, almonds.
We biked into the city to go to the Tompkins Square Park farmers market on Sunday, with his friend John.
Let's see how totally overwhelmed I am at the end of this month, haha. As an introvert I cherish ALONE time, but this is a challenge. And it could be good. Also, if you are a vegan blogger from NYC and want to try to meet up with a neurotic stranger this MoFo, feel free to get in touch.
See you later...
