Vegan MoFo week one retrospective

I've been having such a good time participating in Vegan MoFo! This week I got to play food detective, learn a few new words, and make an entire Mayan dinner. Thankfully, my sweetheart's been enjoying my kitchen experiments - I even got a surprise new bag of beans today! If that's not love, I don't know what is. I'm learning an awful lot researching my theme - and an awful lot from reading other peoples' posts. Have you discovered randomofo yet? If not, it's a fantastic resource and an easy way to sneak some quick peeks at blogs you might not have come across otherwise.

my sweetheart went out to pick up brunch and brought me back beans!

Here, in no particular order, are five posts from other bloggers that I really enjoyed reading this week:

Dawn at Veg-Am posts about sweet breakfast arepas! Amazing.

Kelly over at Seitan Beats Your Meat has so much detail in Mad Men theme so far, I can't wait to see what else she does after this Sugarberry Ham!

I've been eating so much savory corn this week that Sophie's sweet application at Hasta La Vegan  was a revelation.

Lindsay at KitchenOperas is devoting the entire month to hummous

And, finally, Amey at Vegan Eats & Treats has so many lovely words to say about her grandfather and toast.
