New Years Tradition

This year we decided to try a new tradition for New Year's Eve. The plan is to fondue with the kids using vegetable broth or oil, cheese, and chocolate. Not all at the same time of course. I wanted to do something to make the night fun for the kids, since we aren't able to go to the kid's New Year's party we were invited to.

We're going to fondue broccoli/veggies, tofu and/or cutlets in the broth or oil. The vegan cheese will be for the bread and broccoli. For the chocolate we'll do marshmallows and strawberries. Since it kids are little it should be interesting to see how it all goes.

Tonight I'll be celebrating 11 years of following a vegan lifestyle, which was the only New Year's resolution I can say I've kept. Actually I don't recall ever making any others, but becoming a vegan was certainly the most memorable. If you are considering improving your health and eating habits why not consider eating vegetarian or vegan more frequently next year? It is good for your health and the environment, and will likely help to expand the new foods to your dietary repertoire.

Happy New Years!


  1. Happy vegan anniversary! Are you guys sick? Why aren't you going to the party? Let me know how the fondue turns out. So far we don't have a specific tradition just spending time with friends.

  2. You and yours, I mean. That would be just weird to wish a Happy New Years only to your husband and kids.

  3. We weren't sick. One of the kids came down with something the day before New Years Eve, so we decided to stick home.
