Guys! Today is letter N, which means we are officially in the second half of the alphabet! Here is a quick look back at the first half, which was pretty freakin' delicious.
A is for Apple - Apple Crisp
B is for Bourbon - Spiced Seitan Tacos in a Bourbon Reduction
C is for Caraway - Caraway Cashew Cheez
D is for Dill - Baked Dill Mac'n'Cheez
E is for Eggplant - Eggplant Tempeh Potpie

K is for Kimchi - Kimchi Jeon
L is for Longan - Seared seitan in longan barbeque sauce
M is for Mushroom - Fried Seitan & Mashed Potatoes with Mixed Mushroom Gravy
For the record:
Favorite meal so far: either the longan barbecue or the bourbon tacos.
Least favorite meal so far: jaggery dosas with tofu scramble... both good components, not right together.
Number of ingredients I had never cooked with before this month: 7 (longan, jaggery, kimchi, icewine, fresh horseradish, farro, bourbon)
Number of ingredients I had flat out never eaten before this month: 3 (longan, fresh horseradish, farro)
Worst chalkboard picture: The horseradish one. I keep looking at it and thinking I should re-take it. What is with those streaks on the board?! Seriously gross looking.
Best chalkboard picture: Kimchi. Kimchi is so nice to look at.
Number of pictures of the Emperor I've taken in order to get 13 good ones to post: around 500, seriously! He moves too much these days.
On that note, I'll finish this post off with one that didn't make the MoFo cut but is still pretty cute:
Okay! That's our recap! Seeya later!
PS: Happy MoFo hump day!
