As much as I love baking, I love it even more when it involves a holiday or theme. Today was the Chicago Suburban Vegetarian’s monthly vegan potluck and I made Halloween sugar cookies: pumpkins, ghosts, black cats and witches’ brooms. The ghosts look more angry than spooky.
I also brought along some scalloped potatoes with eggplant bacon.
First, I made the Eggplant bacon. It is delicious just on its own. Fortunately, I bought two eggplants, so I can make some more.
Then I made the Scalloped potatoes. This is amazing! You must make it ASAP! I’m pretty sure this will be a Thanksgiving dinner dish.
The potluck was very good. There were black beans with mango, veggie soup, lots of hummus, two kinds of scallop potatoes, and a brussels sprout dish with seaweed. Plus, a table filled with dessert!
