Tour de Mofo: Weeks 1 & 2

Vegan MoFo 2011 - Vegan Month of FoodI’m subscribed to my own Healthy/Whole Foods category for MoFo, so most of these sightings are from that category. I can barely keep up with this small portion of the entries, and I totally fell behind the second week. Holy carrots.

Here are some of my favorite and most fun contributions to MoFo:

Biscoff spreadBest kid-friendly food that makes my kid’s PB&J sandwiches look sad:
Fun Kid Foods – Vegan and So Forth

What can I say – he likes PB&J. We use natural peanut butter, real fruit jelly, and whole grain bread. This week’s sandwiches included homemade wheat bread, Biscoff spread (a.k.a. the infamous Speculoos) and bananas.

Best idea for a restaurant that I should have thought of first:
Pop Bar

Hand-crafted ALL VEGAN gelato on a stick. With dips and toppings. Oh my. Pistachio bar dipped in dark chocolate and coconut, please!

Best food product picture that looks like a body part but isn’t:
Tempt Vanilla with Fudge Swirls Bar

A.k.a. a giant, waxy ear. Just a glimpse of my brain at work. I’m also good at creatively mishearing conversations.

Kitchen gadget I’m coveting but don’t actually need:
Ninjabread Men Cookie Cutters

I like irreverent takes on the classic gingerbread man. Last Christmas, I made giant Domokun gingerbread cookies. I sculpted them freehand, but this year I would like to try making my own cookie cutters. It looks easy, as long as I don’t slice off a finger.

Coolest theme idea (and I WON twice, woot!):
MoFo Mystery Pictures by The Airy Way

This is such a fun way to participate in MoFo! And I won twice so far, with “cabbage” and “those bumpy knobs on the outside of squashes”. The squash bumps were a total longshot, and a sign that some of my neurons are being put to good use.

Cutest mascot:
Ingvar

A little finger that poses with food. Finger food!

Post for making you say, “Eww!” and “Yum!” at the same time:
Creepy Crudités

I need to make these for Halloween.
