VeganMoFo and Tricks or Treats?
Okay, I admit that I am a HUGE fan of Rachael Ray. Her constant babbling and overuse of the acronym EVOO* is just icing on the cake for me. I will watch her shows (all of them, not just 30 Minute Meals) over and over again. I want to BE the vegan version of her...
...Anyhow, I picked up the October issue of Everyday with Rachael Ray and tucked inside on page 108 was an article on Halloween foods...in costumes! Like cupcakes that were actually meatcakes that had mashed potato frosting, and a pizza which was actually a strawberry tart with mascarpone cheese. GENIUS!
I probably won't be having a Halloween party this year, but I probably will be attending one, so I think bringing a beautiful plate of TVP meetloaf "cupcakes" with sweet potato frosting, or a gorgeous lattice topped pie filled with savory tomatoes and spice, might just trick a few partygoers!
*Abbreviations that use the first letter of each word in a phrase are sometimes referred to as initialisms. Initialisms can be but are not always acronyms. AT&T, BT, CBS, CNN, IBM, and NBC are initialisms that are not acronyms. Many acronym lists you'll see are really lists of acronyms and initialisms or just lists of abbreviations. (Note that abbreviations include shortened words like "esp" for "especially" as well as shortened phrases.) So, yes, I called EVOO an acronym when really it is an initialism, I know.
