Happy Father's Day

First off, a big Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there, especially the vegan dads (whether they cook or not). Here's hoping someone is making you a wonderful brunch. If you are interested, Meatout Mondays featured me for Father's Day. You can check it out here. I will warn you, though, they posted my picture. So, if you think of Vegan Dad as some graying and wise older man (something like you own father, perhaps), then prepare to be disappointed.
Sorry, no recipe tonight. With so many people bringing food by I have not had to cook since we got home from the hospital. Some of the dishes have been off my blog, but most have been new and I hope to post them here in the future (the Senegalese Peanut Soup was amazing!). The black bean chili and cornbread pictured here was made by someone who followed my blog and then later found out we lived in the same city and our kids were in the same class. Crazy, right? I like to feel like I contributed to her vegan cooking prowess ("when you can snatch this beansprot from my hand, it will be time for you to go.")

Back soon with recipes. In the meantime, enjoy your families, dads!

Congratulations on your new little girl. I am the mother of two little girls and a newborn baby boy. Sleep is indeed at a minimum. I have followed your blog for quite some time and always enjoyed your recipes. Not doing much cooking lately as I am breastfeeding an infant with intolerances to milk, soy, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, and wheat (and all gluten-containing grains.) So, currently my meals consist of lots of beans and rice, quinoa, seeds, and fruits/veggies. I've actually considered eating meat but as I never have...doubt I could bring myself to do it.

That cornbread looks delicious. I so miss it. We don't get those things over here, and it is even hard to make our own because of the lack of cornmeal.

I spent Fathers Day baking vegan whoopie pies at my parents' house! My omnivore parents were shocked by how delicious they were. Right on.

Michelle said...

No... not at all disappointed! It will be nice to be able to picture you when I read your blog now!

Happy Father's Day to an amazing father - you provide the healthiest food to your kids while looking after our precious earth at the same time!

Hey Vegan Dad, I was thinking of you earlier today while doing some Father's Day cooking. Happy Father's Day! You look different than I expected but I like the photo!

So funny to see your picture! I always thought you'd have to be much older to have so much wisdom... huh! Hope you had a very happy father's day!

I was picturing the dad from Family Ties... instead he's some dude probably only five years older than me! Practically a peer! Pretty funny that you predicted my reaction so well.

Congrats!

Congrats on the New Vegan Daughter, I'm sure she's beautiful! I never pictured you to be older, actually you look somewhat like I pictured you.

No matter how young you are, your cooking is still brilliant.

Hope you had a happy father's day...you derserve it!!
