Thursday before Christmas, Chase and Liz came for dinner and cookie decorating. We had lots of fun making our own falafel. Here they are ready to bake.
Chase was still in the decorating mood and wanted to make falafel-men and stars.
They turned out great!
I guess I made green beans too. Here's our table.
Then I filled it with pureed bananas and chocolate chips.
I let it thaw a few minutes before cutting into it. It was really good! Can you see the layer of peanut butter over the crust?
I made some candied pecans for my dad, not vegan because I can't find a good substitute for egg white for getting the sugar and cinnamon to stick to. And I have to admit - I had a blast whipping that egg white into meringue! It had been a looooong time since I had done that.
I also made my family's favorite granola for my mom, brother, and Chase. It is vegan. Some of the add-ins I use are dried cherries, raisins, dried apricots, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, and almonds.
I made fudge from LDV. Everyone loves this!
And blueberry muffins, the first nonhealthy muffins I had made in quite some time. They are so white!
Shirts and a framed print from my brother. I can't wait for spring to wear these t-shirts!
I hope you all have a happy new year!
