We opted not to have a cookoff in October and instead had a non-competitive vegan Thanksgiving dinner at the Treehouse. In November, the comfort food cookoff was held at Blühaus on the cold and rainy night of November 22nd.
COMPETITORS AND ENTRIES
Jen: grilled 'cheese' and tomato soup (VeganRella on rye bread)
Laryssa: shepherd's pie (lentils, veggies, & mashed potato)
Yaara: I'm broke (rice & lentils, "just like mama used to make")
Jeff D: southern six pack (biscuits & gravy)
Malloreigh: fuckin' poutine! (fries & tofu with mushroom gravy)
Angelique: a former cheese lover's addiction (mac & 'cheese' with cornflake crust and tomatoes)
Corinna: faux chicken pot pie (tofu, veggies & gravy in a pie crust)
Also in attendance were Dan, Kaylie, Kerstyn, Ben, Luke, Jen's roommate Jesse, and a whole bunch of beer and Southern Comfort. Jeff Z was stuck at work, sad to miss a delicious cookoff at home.
