Update: scroll down for list of Vegan MoFo 2013 posts.
Today heralds the beginning of a month of Vegan MoFo madness! Yes, after doing Vegan MoFo in 2011 and 2012, I am back for a third year. For the uninitiated, Vegan MoFo means Vegan Month of Food. It is a month where bloggers all over the world post almost daily about vegan food and experiences. So for September, this blog will be vegan*.
|A preview of some of the food I will feature in Vegan MoFo 2013|
This year, for the first time, I have decided to cook with a theme. As my blog seems to be an intersection of recipes, memory and popular culture, I have chosen TV Dinners. Hence my snazzy Vegan MoFo logo. I will be creating a range of food that is inspired by television shows in some way.
I will be a bit fast and loose with my theme but it does not include tv cooking shows. Generally the television shows will be ones that I know and love. It will be fun. It will also reflect on how eating a vegan diet doesn't mean you can't still have links with the mainstream food culture. I will also slip in the odd post that doesn't quite fit with the theme, such as In My Kitchen, that I do each month.
Update November 2013: I have decided to continue the theme beyond Vegan MoFo - for a more updated list go to my TV Dinners page.

I started preparing for Vegan MoFo a few months back because Vegan MoFo demands more posting than I usually do (at least 20 posts in the month) and because I had decided on a theme. Then I found it was September not October. Argh! I had already arranged to host Jac's Pasta Please blog event and to go away on holiday this month. And I was unwell for a few days over the last week of August. Thank goodness for the pre-scheduled posts and Jac's flexibility.
If you would like to send me a pasta dish this month featuring long pasta that would be wonderful (check the event details here). If I am not responding at all, I am either inundated or on holidays. And if you happen to see me down the street, I will probably look like this:
