A Study in Stuffed Stuff.
I just spent the better part of two hours reading and commenting my way through all the "A" blogs of folks who are regularly posting for MoFo this month. Heavens! One idea I never was able to organize before all the writing began, was getting together teams of "comment bombers." I love the idea of a group of 50 readers or more, commenting together on specific blogs everday. Someone remind me next year!
Blogging daily is such a delightful time suck, but how it distresses me I can't keep up with the throng of '09 MoFoers--so for me, picking a letter and working my way down the list, works the best. Tomorrow, I shall start in with The Bees. My boon has been discovering a bunch of previously unknown, yet stellar blogs. My current new favorite: Claryn's Hell Yea! It's Vegan.
Peanut butter stuffed chocolate-chocolate chip cookies and birthday suit clad orange cupcakes.
In other busy news of the past week, I have been baking and cooking, cooking and baking for a couple o' different benefits. First, I was so delighted to help the Apron Activists last Thursday and Friday. We cooked for a full house, and nothing gave me more motivation than that sweet hero of a chimp, Burrito. Thanks to Jess and Tahinitoo, who captured the event in photos--the menu was insane with goodness.
In between the monkey business, I also promised to help out with a garage/bake sale to benefit another favorite charity. Time was tight, but I managed to churn out a large batch of yumsky double chocolate peanut butter stuffed cookies (a classic Martha Stewart recipe gone veganized) and a dozen orange pudding cupcakes (sorta half VCToTW half Papa Tofu). I swear on my honor, next time I make these cookies, they're going through The Deglutenizer (c). I don't mind baking with wheat flour, it doesn't hold any sort of gross factor like eggs would, but I do mind passing up on the good stuff. Especially, because I'm too lazy and inexperienced to try baking XgfX. Poo poo, kittee. Poo poo.
[Insert new and refreshing attitude here].
I leave you with A Study in Stuffed Cookies.
P.S. I only have one XgfX Primal Strip left. Comment on this post, if you're interested in one (although I still have about six gluten-y varieties left). Also, Veg is Sexy wins the latest chewy.
