Week Four: Memories and Traditions

Today’s prompt is “vegan memories” — which is remarkably appropriate for this blog, since I’ve been keeping it on and off since becoming vegan. Here are a few posts and foods that bring back particularly strong vegan-newbie memories for me:

  • This post, regarding Isa’s ancho lentil soup. A friend made the soup back in my early flirting-with-veganism days, so it holds a particularly strong spot in my taste-memories.
  • The Mucho Margarita cupcakes from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World.I made them for my college graduation party, and I remember my little cousin (not so little now) eagerly helping. Everyone was surprised that the cupcakes were — gasp! — vegan. Little did they know that in a few years, nearly all shared food items at family gatherings would be vegan.
  • Banana soft serve, eaten any old way. Banana soft serve exploded onto the blogosphere in summer 2009, right before I went vegan — and it was one of the first “raw foods” (hah!) I tried.
