Napkins, Dishes

This idea has been kicking around my head for the past couple of weeks now, born of a few comments between Shira (In Pursuit of More) and me – when I invited myself over to partake of one of her inspired dips and she graciously welcomed me to come on by.  Sadly, of course, that was not possible.  Though we share a continent, there were too many miles between us for me to have made it there in time for the main course, let alone the hors d’oeuvre.  But it got me thinking: wouldn’t it be nice to gather this warm community of eating, baking and cooking bloggers for a feast?  One day where we all come together to share favorite recipes as if we were really sitting down – plates balanced on knees, juggling glasses – to eat together?  A virtual vegan potluck.

Here’s what I’m thinking: participants would select a course out of the usual suspects (beverages, appetizers, salads, soup/stews, sides, main course, breads, desserts – any I’m forgetting?) and on the date selected, they would publish a post of their recipe with photos.  A “button” would guide readers to the preceding post and the following post.  A blog circle.  The circle would be set up so that it starts with the appetizers and moves through the courses.  Perhaps there would also be a “host” site that is not participating in the potluck, but just serves as a launching point for the event.  A bit of HTML here and there (provided by me and inserted by you into your post) would tie us all together.

What do you think?  Would you like to join me in a virtual vegan potluck?  I hope so!  Please let me know by emailing me at anunrefinedvegan@gmail.com – and tell me what course you’d like to contribute (no need to include the exact dish).  Check out my page Vegan Virtual Potluck for more details and for info and developments – and by all means, spread the word and invite other food bloggers!

Let’s say the deadline for committing to the potluck is April 30, with the potluck itself being held on May 12.  I’ll list the blog names on the Vegan Virtual Potluck page so that everyone knows who is ahead and who is behind them on the list.  I’ll post a couple of buttons to decorate your sidebars if you like and the HTML code will be available there as well.

There’s no limit on the number of bloggers participating and hey, if you aren’t an every day vegan, no worries.  Just prepare something animal-free for the potluck.  I’d love to have eaters and cooks of all kinds.

Hope to see you at the Potluck!

    You bet! I read about this earlier today but was on a Pennsyltucky Veggie tour and couldn’t respond until now. Count me IN! What a great idea!

  5. meizac says:

    I love this idea too! Does it have to be an original recipe (because I have none of those)? Maybe I could use one that’s already publicly available (and, of course, still give credit), rather than use one out of a book? :)

  6. Oh yeah I’m in! How much fun is this going to be. Great idea.

  7. This is an amazing idea and I’m totally in….now I just have to get thinking about what to contribute :)
    Thanks – you are a creative genius, can’t wait to see what everyone comes up with.

  8. I’m in! Oh the blogging, cooking fun!

  9. Shira says:

    FABULOUS Ann! Now look what we have…there is no limit to ideas when you get a group of inspired folks together! Love this, I am in for sure! I’ll get an email out to you before week’s end! xo! :)

  10. Oh this is incredible! I will definitely participate :) I can’t wait! SO many ideas already…

  11. This sounds like a lot of fun and I will definitely participate (though I think you know which section :P) – wnderful idea and thank you for inviting!
