Vegan MoFo IV: Day 1

Yo MoFo'ers!

It's that time of year again - the time when the blogosphere goes vegan crazy as vegan bloggers from around the globe pledge to blog about all things vegan as much as is humanly possible during the month of November. OK OK so it's usually the month of October but that is just a minor detail.
Most years I deliberate about whether to have a theme for MoFo or not and usually the answer is "not" and this year the answer is still "not".
What can I say - I'm just not very good at making decisions of such importance.
What you will see within this blog for the next 30 days is what I get up to in the kitchen and around the home and in my life in general. Believe me it is a very exciting life I live and you are all lucky lucky people to get a glimpse into all this wonderfullness. 
AHEM.
And to kick off this years MoFo I give you Skeleton Gingerbread Men. Cool huh!
I used this recipe here but the design was totally inspired by Shellyfish from 2 MoFo's ago!


My evil army of Gingerbread Skeletons taking a well deserved break before the Halloween mayhem begins.

 They were so evil they had to be destroyed!

Go MoFo!!

Great start to MoFo! Your little army of gingerbread skeletons are super cute! (particularly the legs, which I just *love*).

Michelle said...

Skeleton army!! <3

I can never make a decision about a theme either. Non-theme's unite! Happy MoFo!

Jodi Anderson said...

The cookies are adorable, Jeni.

Happy November!

jessy said...

Mihl said...

I'll have multiple themes. Gotta be flexible y'know? Those gingerbread skeletons are adorable!

Tracy said...

What the awesome?! These are so clever, I love them! I think I'd prefer skele-men to gingerbread men any time of year, SO CUTE. :c) Happy MoFo!

lazysmurf said...

I need some cookies! Happy MoFo!

Hannah said...

First and foremost your cat shoes are fantastic. Secondly, yay Mofo! I'm very excited to see what very. important. things you got going on this year!

River (Wing-It Vegan) said...

Go MoFo! Your army of gingery dudes is so eeevil! I remember Shelly's cookies from way back then!

No theme? Me neither. Well. I guess if you consider laziness a theme, then there's a theme! :D

Allyson said...

I'm no good at making decisions like that either- but I do honestly think spontaneity is the best way to MoFo! Love the gingerbread skeletons!

shellyfish said...

You are the sexiest witch ever! I love that picture - for reals!

Those cookies are my favourite - we tried to make some this year with "blood" icing, but they just look like pink chocolate boy army or something. I'll probably post them.

Love!!!

Jenny said...

Those cookies are adorable. I love it when a recipe calls for white icing (so easy) so this is great for me. We homeschool so this would actually be great even with a human body study, etc. :)

Andrea said...

Decoration perfection! The ginger people look great — love the skulls.

Kiersten said...

I love the gingerbread skeletons! They are too cute.

Tami (Vegan Appetite) said...

Awesome cookies!

erin32mc said...

Your army of skeletons look delicious.

Mandee said...

Your gingerbread skeletons look perfect! I love them :D

Bianca said...

Cute! I love that idea!

Monique a.k.a. Mo said...

Such a fantastic idea! I've never ever thought of doing that with gingerbread men before!

DJ said...

OMG - The Horror, the HORROR, those poor little evil skelingtons! Mind you, they do look pretty irresitible - Happy Mofo!!!

Vicki said...

I love those gingerbread men - so cute & such a good idea!

cravinveggies said...

Happy MoFo, Jeni!

Mail. Me. Some. Cooooookies!!

No theme for me either. That would require organization and planning, both of which I am not so good at.

btw... love your blog header!

snarkyvegan said...

Those are pretty much the cutest gingerbread dudes I've ever seen. For real.

Gingerbread skeletons! yes!

Happy MoFo! :D

C said...

Oh my, so cute! Both of the gingerbread man and you!

Pharaoh's Cat said...

What a cool idea - Skeleton Gingerbreads!!!! Bet they were yummy!

vegannifer said...

Great job on those cookies!

I can't come up with themes, either. It's fun, though, to just see what everyone eats and to learn a bit about people, what they like and where they live!

MeShell said...

These are so darn adorable.

I hear you on the no theme thing. I don't know if I'm going to keep up on mine, but here's hoping.

Connie said...

Love the skeletons. I also love the bloggers who are using a theme, but I am just not that organized. I prefer to write whatever pops in my head. :) Looking forward to your posts this month.

Felicity said...

Love the gingerbread skellingtons! I decided not to do a theme for MoFo this year either. What I eat is what you'll see :)
