Ah, 100 Days. I miss you already, on this little Chicago VeganMania suspension & adventure. I miss my kitchen so much when I travel – especially when my luck seems to fail with menu ordering more often than not in the Windy City..but I digress, I mean, did I go through cooking withdrawals and try to sneak my way into the cooking demo prep kitchen at the end of the day to prepare dinner for team VVC?

I’m here now to quickly share 11 more days of this dedicated project, with 9 more days beyond. I’d love to go out with a bang, and somehow incorporate that into tomorrow’s month-long start of VeganMoFo…..so, time (and google doc obsessing) will tell what’s in store.

That pasta dish seems to tie with pickled hot peppers for 100 Days popularity in my kitchen.
Now, day ninety included a warming lemongrass-and-garlic based hot & sour soup with soft tofu strips, all so, so on the fly, that I somehow didn’t manage to capture. Once again, alas.
Speaking of air-drying and related lessons in patience….
And another one with a legitimate recipe to follow during MoFo, oh my:
