Whew. What a busy time. I can't wait until this year is over and we can all start fresh! The holiday season has us working long hours and eating on the run, so I don't have much to post food-wise. But here are a few of my favorite things from the past month or so.
Tiny plastic donuts, a birthday gift from Laura:
Raspberry-topped Lemon Love Cups, a recipe from Sweet Utopia. Get this book, you won't be disappointed:
Another goody from Sweet Utopia, Midnight Chocolate Cake. Strawberries aren't in season, and my frosting was sweating. But in my defense, I was crazy sick and had a fever while making it:
Citrus Glitters, the first cookies I've made from Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar. I'm so behind! These were great, by the way:
An impromptu berry cobbler we made one night. We added chocolate chips to the biscuit topping. Mmm.
New zombie shirt! Threadless had a sale.
New tattoo! I decided on a deer tattoo while on a road trip with Ken. We were driving to upstate New York to exhibit at a vegetarian festival, and along the way we saw several deer hanging out near the highway. It reminded me of how hunters try to justify killing these beautiful animals because they seem to think it's their duty to control the deer population in order to avoid situations like deer running out into the road and causing damage to cars, or eating plants in people's yards. The idea that humans have the right to kill another species simply because they are inconvenient to our sprawling urban and suburban living is just sad to me.
Danielle at Only You Tattoo created my beautiful little fawn with all vegan inks. I just love it.
That's it for me this year. See you on the flip side.
