Tonight I was in the mood to bake. I tried two new recipes! First I made raw, vegan, soy-free and gluten-free lime cakes. And right after that I made a chocolate chip loaf with chocolate glaze. The raw lime cakes were more for me and the chocolate chip loaf was more for Eric. He didn’t try the lime cakes, but I did try the loaf!
The recipe for the chocolate chip loaf called for sour cream. I didn’t want to use sour cream so I replaced the 1/4 cup sour cream with 1/4 cup vanilla almond yogurt and 1/4 teaspoon baking soda! It worked out just fine!
I’ve been mopey off and on the past few weeks. It’s super hard for me to meet people out here and I do miss my friends who all live in different states. Sometimes I feel like I’m just about to hit it off with someone and then the powers that be say “uh uh…oh hell no!”
I was watching the show “Rev.” tonight. The show is about a Church of England priest in London. It’s a fun show that you should check out! Tonight Adam, the priest, was dealing with his lack of friends. Adam said something that basically sums up the way I’ve been feeling….”Where’s my piece of bread? Who’s going to offer me a whole meal bloomer with the lightest sprinkling of sunflower seeds on top?”
Today has been relaxing and productive. We woke up and went to the grocery store, made food, cleaned the kitchen, I cleaned my office!, bought a few things for the house AND we made cupcakes.
During the month of May I participated in a Vegan Food Swap. I first read about the swap via Vegan Yack Attack. I decided it would be fun to join in the vegan sharing!
Everyone who signed up for the swap was given the name and email address of someone to send a vegan swap package to. A different person was assigned to send you some goods. You can read more about the swap rules here.
I sent my package to Ashley of Season of the Vegan. The package I received was from Cheryl of Stuff You’ll Love. Oddly enough Cheryl is from the east coast, she screen prints and she’s from Seattle! That’s a girl after my own heart!
My package from Cheryl was awesome! Eric even got in on the awesome action.
I’m super happy I participated in the Vegan Food Swap and I can’t wait to do it again next month! Oh, and happy 600th blog post to me!
