Vegan Potato Dish (You Name It Challenge Remix)
So, we live in a time of internet challenges. I love to watch them, I love to participate in them. I’m dying to do the mannequin challenge. I keep missing it! I didn’t go to spin class that day and what do I see posted on Facebook… my class doing the mannequin challenge. I didn’t go to a Quinceneara that I was invited to and what do I see on my co-workers’ phone on Monday….the whole party doing the damn mannequin challenge!
When was I going to get to be a part of the masses? I too wanted to be a cool kid! I turned on Facebook one day and there it was, a remix of Pastor Shirley Caesar’s song “Hold My Mule”. She listed a few items such as: Beans, greens potatoes and tomatoes while they showed clips of people dancing to the beat. I had found my challenge. It was a culinary challenge!
I saw a video with a super cute rapper (Shout out to Official Grey!) who rapped about the marvels of a meat free Thanksgiving. Now, Pastor Caesar had also gone on to list different vegetables as well as a variety of meats on her song. He had chosen to focus on the veggies that were listed and it made me wonder, “What do vegans eat for Thanksgiving and do I ever want to find out?”
So, Here ya go my vegan friends as well as my meat eating friends. This is my interpretation/contribution to the #YouNameItChallenge . I hope you just love it!
