Today's MoFo Prompt: What (insert well know person) would eat if they were vegan
I wasn't sure if I should pick a real person, or a fictional person for this prompt, but then Mr. VE&T suggested Superman, and I just knew he was right.
Did you know that I kinda have a thing for Superman? In particular, I have a thing for Christopher Reeve's Superman. The movie "Superman" came out shortly before my 6th birthday and had a major impact on me. I had a weird thing where I was 50% in love with Superman, and 50% just wanted to be Superman. I used to run around the neighborhood in my Superman underoos. I was most definitely not interested in Wonder Woman underoos.
my 6th birthday, I got a Superman puzzle.
observe my delight!
I had a lot of Superman paraphenalia, including a Superman washcloth - which I STILL HAVE (and use). There was that one scene where Superman brought Lois Lane to his amazing Fortress of Solitude crystal palace... OH MAN. I was INTO THAT. In fact, I insisted that my mom buy me satin sheets after that, so my bed could be like Superman's bed. Ha ha ha.
y'know... just chilling out, drinking coffee on the couch with Superman
Anyhow, we invited Superman over for dinner. It's been a while since we caught up with him. According to the authority of the Internet, there is some debate about whether or not Superman actually needs to eat... It seems that perhaps is powered by the sun. But we know that after crashing to earth as an infant, he grew up in the Midwest, and undoubtedly that involved a lot of good old fashioned American food.
Homestyle Loaf from Vegan Diner
Mr. VE&T and I decided that if Superman were vegan, he would probably still enjoy the comfort foods that reminded him of the simpler days of his youth on the farm. Before he had to fight with Zod and save people's lives all day and fly backwards around the world so quickly that he reversed time and all that. If you didn't even need to actually eat, I suppose you would just eat for fun or for social niceties, or for emotional comfort. So we decided to make him a good old-timey Vegan Meatloaf with steamed corn and green beans. Hopefully this evoked some happy Midwestern memories for him. Plus, just in case he actually does need to eat, this meatloaf is loaded up with protein for superblasting through the air and fighting evil. Better safe than sorry.
* This recipe is so good. I really recommend it. It's got beefy crumbles, tofu, and walnuts - all for a protein and flavor packed loaf, plus totally perfect seasoning.
After dinner, Superman took Snoopy and me on a super-rad flight around the earth. So fun!
Ha ha. After I showed that last doodle to Mr. VE&T, he got all jealous.
Look out Zod! Look out Lex Luthor! Yummers is going to get you!
or maybe Yummers is the villain???
