Menu Plan Monday October 31: VeganMoFo Wrap-up

Happy Halloween everyone! And Happy Final Day of VeganMoFo for those participating. It's been a fun challenge and I've learned a lot about being vegan. It can be delicious and simple! I've chosen some of my favorites for the month, and I've also dedicated myself to a somewhat new goal for the blog for the next two months.

It seems I'm stepping out of one challenge and into another. VeganMoFo is ending and the holiday season is already upon us. That being said, I'm going to be pretty busy in the last two months of my challenge (as most others will be as well). So, inspired by some of the fantastic and simple vegan dishes I've been able to make, I'm going simple for the rest of the year. With two toddlers under 3, visiting relatives (ominvores included) and holiday festivities, I'm simply going to put together meals that everyone (hopefully) will like, with less regard what meat it emulates.

Also, I'm edging away from the monthly menu planning and going back to a loose weekly plan. While it's great not to have to think about a menu plan for a whole month and going shopping primarily just once a month, it's not as easy to incorporate CSA box beauties and grocery store sales. The good news for the readers: more original, simple recipes. The bad news for Menu Plan Monday: less outside blog links. Be sure to follow me on Pinterest to see my inspirations. And don't forget to check out Meatless (Vegan) Mondays.
