If you weren’t aware, the first two days of Novemeber are when a lot of people celebrate the Day of the Dead. It’s just a day to take time to remember those who have left us, really you can read the wikipedia page if you want to know all about it. Anyway, one of the ways of celebrating is by making a dish that your deceased loved one enjoyed! So that’s the challenge. Make or veganize a favorite dish of someone you’ve lost.
Now, if you’re like me and can’t think of anything, you can always use someone famous, like Elvis with his fried peanut butter banana sandwiches. Fun fact: I have been to a birthday party for Elvis. Even though I think his music pretty well sucks. Hey, free food.
My great-grandmother made angel food cake, and we all know that ain’t happening without egg whites so i’m going to have to go the famous person route. Or I could just make oatmeal and sniff coffee because that’s what my grandma’s house smelled like in the mornings.
I don’t want to discourage people from participating due to lack of time, so everyone has until whenever I feel like blogging on Monday. Good luck!
