Vegan Mofos: Happy World Vegetarian Day

Wanted to give a shout out to all the lovely bloggers participating in the second annual VeganMofo. (Vegan Month of Food). What a great way to kick off the MoFo with a celebration of World Vegetarian Day, and the beginning of Veggie Awareness Month. So how does a veganmofo celebrate such a day when every day is world vegetarian day for us? Well WVD has a list of suggestions?

As for this vegan, i thought it would be a nice day to pay homage to those who came before me.  Special thanks to my mom and dad who raised us vegetarian, with extra special shout out to the mom for veganizing raita, lassi, paneer, and indian sweets. To my friend Valerie, who was my first real vegan friend who was also into chimps and against vivisection. To the dairy cows of the world:  Once i learned your story, there was no turning back.

I also want to acknowledge the vegans who came after me:  To my dearest Wan and our lovely Mookie, I love this vegan life with you.

Now off to eat a veganhodgepodge.  More tomorrow.  (CSA pickup, the revival of the vegan potluck and Gandhi’s Birthday)

P.S.  Vegan discovery of the day:  Vegan Challah from Lily’s Bakeshop in Brooklyn.  Happy Vegan Roshashana!
