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!!!
