Busy BUSY bee!

June 19, 2010

Whew!  I got a day off from class and work and quickly turned it into a jam-packed cooking/eating/playing day!  My baking bonanza began Thursday night.  Jenn, my best friend, who lives in Fort Collins turned 21 TODAY!!  I, however, am still 20 and couldn’t join in any of the festivities so I promised to drive up and take her to lunch the day before.  I wanted to make something special, soooo

Ooooh a shiny toy loaned to me from my mom

used to make these… (and yes my kitchen IS THAT green!)

Hidden Peanut Butter Balls (+ 2 more recipes that I used)

Popped these babies in the freezer for 30 minutes then switched to the fridge overnight.

Somewhere in there we ate this tasty margarita pizza on GHBC whole wheat pizza dough.  Joey should not be trusted with the pizza slicer (nor should my dad who tries to use it to cut everything — he once used it to cut a king cake)

I was up at 7:30 to shower and dash over to Whole Foods for a few things I couldn’t find at the local grocery 😦  Thankfully, WF never fails to bail me out of my ingredient dilemmas.

Half an hour later, I was back home and cooking up a storm for Jenn!

I did TONS of tasting and needed some REAL food — Vegan Overnight Oats (VOOs)

Then back to baking

And mess making

All done!

I frosted half for myself, he he

And half for Jenn, with blueberries mixed in.  I wanted a natural alternative to food coloring.  This worked OKAY, but was more gray than purple :/

I kept having to switch between having them on the passenger seat and on the floor to keep them out of the sun on the drive (it takes about an hour and 15 minutes) and BLASTED the air — I was so scared the frosting would start to melt!!  Luckily, they were fine 🙂

We hit up Avogandro’s Number for lunch.  I’d never been and was DYING to try their famous Tempeh Burger, yumm!

It was Free Fry Friday (try saying that 10 times fast!) so I tried a few and they were delicious!  But nothing compared to the burger

The taste and texture were out of this world!!  This totally lived up to the hype.  Lunch was followed by cupcake consumption and giggling over letters we wrote each other in high school.  I LOVE JENN ❤

Then it was back home for the Rockies game!

Can you tell I have allergies?  My eyes have been so itchy and puffy, ugh!

One last meal, I promise!

VOO parfait!

Bottom to top: Just Bunches, VOO (oats, almond milk, chia seeds, vanilla + cinnamon), Banana Soft Serve (banana + blueberries blended in at the end), VOO, BSS, VOO, BSS, Just Bunches, PB.  Run then scarf and emit sigh of relaxation.
