With Vegan Month coming to a close soon (we're tacking on a few days in March since February was a short month), Kenji spent a day cooking in his kitchen to photograph recipes for the upcoming month. Hambone loved having him at home all day. Or maybe he just sat there and slept like he always does.

Max: "That sandwich has a face-hole."

There it is. (Oh yeah, the sandwich was good!)

"Banh mi, you look...different today"

We bought a bunch of veg-only banh mi and shoved a bunch of other things in 'em, like fried crullers and dumplings. Just another day at the office.
