VeganMoFo: mac and cheese

Another cold weather comfort food is ye olde mac and cheese. The recipe we use is the one in The New Farm Vegetarian Cookbook and we can't make it too often because it is so not good for you (seeing as how it involves almost a bag of pasta, a stick of margarine, and a 1/4 cup oil), but it really just hits the spot sometimes (and has even impressed a non-vegan or two). Last night was a mac and cheese kind of night, but we did make a side of dino kale and chard to try to counter the indulgence.

VeganMoFo: Sweetpea Bakery

Jo and Mom

Been juggling work on Jo's book (it's awesome!) and a short visit from my mom. Spent the weekend formatting Jo's pages and it was so cool to re-read her stories page by page, coming all together as a whole, and seeing how they build and parallel and intersect. We're super excited about it! She sent us her mock-up yesterday (even better getting to flip physical pages), along with some really great little gifts (L, O, shell, and maybe it was just for wrapping, but loved her screen printed tissue paper). Thanks Jo! You can get a sneak preview of what the title page will be like. So the book's just about done, but had to put off wrapping it up...
