My contribution to the Halloween feast this year was a fantastic pasta dish that I threw together on the fly. It was basically just some fusilli topped with a creamy, curried pumpkin sauce. It was such a big hit, I'm going to try to recreate it and write the recipe down so I can share it.
I also baked a cake, which I intended to share with the neighbors. Unfortunately, it never made it out of the kitchen so now The Husband and I will have to eat it all. Don't you just hate it when that happens?
Anyhow, it was my first time with this recipe, which happens to be out of my new cookbook - Get it Ripe: A Fresh Take on Vegan Cooking and Living by Jae Steele over at Domestic Affair. This is only the second recipe I've made from Get it Ripe, and I already think I'm in love. But more on that tomorrow. For now, let's talk cake.
I hope your Halloween was super spooky and lots of fun. I also hope VeganMoFo was as enjoyable for you as it was for me. My theme of "putting food by" served dual purposes: it gave me plenty to talk about for the month and it allowed me to get our kitchen stocked up for NaNoWriMo. If you're a NaNo'er, hit me up on the website - I'm Scorpio Rising. Just don't ask me what I'm writing about. I don't know yet. That's half the fun! :)
