Saturday, December 27
Christmas was nice and quiet for us. I've spent the last few days baking - 4 different kinds of cookies: gingerbread, snickerdoodles, apricot/shortbread pinwheels and chocolate chip (ALL VEGAN!) and one set of vanilla cupcakes with cream cheese frosting. So. Much. Good. Food. Lots of good friends too. I had friends from work join us for Butternut Squash soup and Dutch Chocolate Silk Pie on Christmas Eve, and they brought their 3-year-old son who just had us laughing all night. Then, Christmas morning was spent with another vegan family we know and we stuffed ourselves silly. Once we could move enough, we spent the afternoon playing Rock Band on the Playstation 3. Hahahaha - that's a hilarious game to watch.
Yesterday, our friend Nick came up to spend a few days. After a lunch of falafel, we wandered around the mall playing with gift cards that we received, then headed home. It's just too rainy and cold out to enjoy the day outside.
For tonight's dessert, I threw together my vanilla cupcakes with soy cream cheese icing.
Almost all of the snow we got a week ago has been washed away by the rain.
