Vegan Abby and Brittany Theme Party!

Happy September!

ATM and I like to joke that we are joined at the hip, so when we found out that "Abby and Brittany" was premiering on TLC last Tuesday, we decided to throw a party!  The show is a series based on a TLC documentary about twin sisters' Abby and Brittany Hensel, who have conjoined bodies but each have a separate head.  As our excitement for the premiere grew, so did our wacky ideas for the party.  

While on a hot date at Tre Visi (noshing on Pasta Puttanesca - hold the anchovies - with gluten-free farfalle), ATM and I decided that themed vegan appetizers were absolutely necessary.  How the heck do you make themed vegan appetizers for a two-headed sister party?  Had we lost our minds?  Had we gone too far?  

Before we start coming off like total jerks, I should note that we have nothing but admiration and respect for Abby and Brittany!  They live a life that is unimaginable to most people and they thrive.  They seriously kick ass at life!  They are a very inspiring pair and ATM and I as well as our cocktail party guests remain huge fans :)

Back to the themed appies:  It was a lot harder to come up with themed snacks than I thought.  I ended up making a crudites platter with some Abby and Brittany's made out of veggies, served with my vegan ranch dip as well as 'Abby and Brittany in a Blanket' (two vegan hot dog slices wrapped in crescent roll dough and baked) served with maple mustard dip.  ATM's auntie and I made some very cute Abby and Brittany's out of fruit as well.  

We had a blast at the party and loved, loved, LOVED the show!!!
