Happy veganversary to me!
Today was my two year veganversary. I would like to thank the ppk, for taking a chance on an unknown vegetarian, and for the awesome food porn that showed me that being vegan ain’t no thang. Also to my family and friends, for generally not being dicks about it and for any time that you made me food or even made sure there were bananas in the house so I wouldn’t starve. And to my mother, for starting me on my journey fourteen years ago by telling me that I could never give up meat. Thppppt.

And finally, some tofu marinated in tempeh bacon marinade and pan fried. I used dark soy sauce, which I love because it makes everything a dark reddish brown:
