Eats and treats

I am slowly, but surely getting addicted...wait...I am completely in love with...no. I can't help myself, I have to look at Johanna's Daily Eats everyday. Seriously, I don't know what it is I like so much about looking at other people's food all day. I guess that's why it's called porn. I'm thinking about trying to do something like this, just because I think it would be fun. But that might be a little difficult since my USB port on my laptop is al funked. I do good to control my temper long enough to deal with it once a week or so. Everyday? Sheit. It would also probably be kind of boring, since all I have been in the mood for is PB&J and brussel sprouts.

Also, some exciting news. I became a tester! I have been wanting to do this for so long, and I finally got the chance. I will be testing cookies for Autumn Vegan, and her new vegan cookie book. I baked my first bath last night- Cashew Chocolate Chip Oatmeal cookies. They were so so easy, and perfect chewy delicious goodness. Great after a long, hard day and getting hit on my bike. Yeah, I said it. I got HIT on my BIKE.. by a CAR. Grrr. I'm fine, but my bike got a little beat up. I came home and worked on it, and it's rideable. I definately need to take it to the shop now, though. Anyway, expect seeing many more cookies in posts to come. Did someone say Chocolate Peppermint Cream Bars? Umm, yes please! Perfect timing for the holidays.

A nice plate of cookies hangin' out on the recent copy of The Advocate, waiting for me to dip them into some soy chai.

Oh I can't believe you got hit! I'm surprised I haven't been run over crossing Congress everyday. Austin drivers are the worst. I'm glad you're okay.

The cookies look great and I can't wait to see the creamy minty ones!

Yep, Texas drivers don't know how to deal with bikers....would expect a little better our of Austin than others though. Good thing you got off okay.

Cookie tester? That's awesome!

I know, right? I was pretty shocked and shaken by the whole incident. Thankfully I wasn't hurt. And I'm still riding, and loving it.
