So, a few months back I signed up for the Dutch Oven Cook-Off my work is hosting this Friday. After that I kind of forgot about it until a few days ago when I got a reminder email–and now I am kind of regretting my initial bravery.
A vegan at a dutch oven cook-off? How out of place can you be? Dutch oven cooking is the land of steak and potatoes people, hunters, etc. (And, of course, 7-up cobblers. Can’t forget those.) What made me so brazen as to think I could possibly get anyone to even TRY my pot pie? (Oh yeah, I am making this AMAZING vegan pot pie.) I mean, I have completely given up on winning since every tester only gets ONE vote and I am pretty sure it’s not going to be mine. Not that it’s not going to be AMAZING, but I think most people will be like “yeah, this would be great with a little (some kind of dead flesh) in it.”
Anyway, I’m not backing out now. Dutch oven cook-off, here I come. Coming to rid the world of prejudice against vegan food and it’s tastiness and stereotypes about dutch oven cookers. Wish me luck everyone!
