Now, registration is supposed to start soon. There will be a ton of stuff going on during the conference. Speakers, demos, workshops, panels, food, and so much more. I'm crossing my fingers that Portland throws one of their awesome vegan proms for this! I've been saying I'd straight school some fools with my robot for years now. Haha. So if you are interested in going, check out the website. Plus, there is also a scholarship opportunity. Winning a scholarship would award you FREE registration! Check out all the details here. Also, be sure to add the banner to your blog because vegan word of mouth (or blog) is where it's at!
Now to switch gears a little bit, I have MoFo on the mind lately. Throughout the year, if I thought of something that seemed interesting for a theme I wrote it down. My list is becoming super huge, and I probably won't get to some of what's on it. As per usual, I am not having a monthly theme. I've broken it down into several themes and will probably not even know what I'm doing until the week before I do it.
So far these are my ideas:
Bowls-Never really encountered these before California. It's a meal involving a starch, vegetables, protein, and a sauce or two. Thinking about doing different ones because bowls are just freaking awesome.
Playing with Food-This involves weird, involved, often hysterical food related projects. Examples include: haunted gingerbread houses, veganizing omni monstrosities, and baking weird things inside of a cake. Oh, and Ladies Brunch Hot Dog Rollups:
the ghost of MoFo past
E.A.T. World-River's blog challenge that involves making cuisine from around the world. I'm finding it hard to narrow down the countries. This will be seriously fun!
Holidays-It's that time of year, and there are so many traditions I'd like to celebrate. And nothing brings a celebration together like food!
Dinner and a Movie-I've only got one movie picked so far (Serenity), but I am really looking forward to doing this again.
Cooking the Books-Always taking my cookbook collection for granted, I figure this is a great way to make recipes I have never made before.
Those are the major ones. Other ideas include: cocktails, raw food on a budget, fair food (deep fried beer anyone?), and a cheesecake party. Okay, a cheesecake party isn't really a theme. However, I have officially become obsessed with finding the best vegan pumpkin cheesecake and decided a tasting is absolutely essential! Why isn't it November yet?
Tomorrow, I'm doing a second Thanksgiving trial. Look for details on that later this week. For now, I'm gonna sip some iced tea, listen to Amy Winehouse, and get a few more MoFo details worked out. More to come soon...
