for halloween,i made peanut butter oatmeal cookies with vegan 'm&ms/smarties',and theresa and i made cookie sammiches with them.for breakfast.because it's halloween.

so we spread the cookies with peanut butter,jam,banana slices,homemade granola,and then there was the candies on them,too.somewhat healthy,right?but it's halloween!

i had a free drink from a filled-up stampcard at stumptown,so since it's halloween i had my first mocha ever!elliott did a really nice job.
the espresso i had earlier was better,but this was still kind of amazing.just not coffee.




just cookie.


happy halloween!

ohhh,and this one!

Vegan MoFo Day#30-Peanut Butter 'Oats In a Jar'

look at that chunk o'peanut butter!

so this kind if brilliant idea is really popular and this was my first time trying it,and i'm pretty sure that chocolatecoveredkatie either 'invented' it,or at least made it really popular.

this is my practically empty jar of peanut butter,and the idea is that you make oatmeal in it.then eat it.and it's like amazing-er than just oatmeal with peanut butter stirred in or added.

adding museli 'mix'...

heated unsweetened original almond breeze...

oats in a pb jar2

shake and let sit...

and i like my oats cold when i eat em,so i put it in the fridge after adding some banana chunks and then ate later in the afternoon.

as you can tell from the picture at the beginning of the post,mine was super peanut way to eat cereal/oatmeal.just make sure that you always have a practically(i guess) empty peanut butter jar on hand.

Vegan MoFo Day#29-Peanut Butter and Pomegranate-a Surpising Match Made In Heaven

up until yesterday i thought that pomegranates weren't that great,weren't too flavourful,too much of a pain to eat,over prices,and just plain less-than-mediocre.

then theresa did a still life of a cut one and left me with half of it.

and i ate it like so,and that opinion at once changed forever.


it was like eating an incredibly juicy,exotic,pb&j.
yeah,it was kind of amazing,and will soon make an actual pb&j with pomegranate arils and pomegranate jelly(i think crofter's makes one...)

Vegan MoFo Day#28-Peanut Butter & Soft Whole Wheat Fig Bars from the Upcoming Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar!

remember when i wrote about peanut butter & fresh figs last week?and how i said dried vs. fresh is a totally different story?
well it is.dried figs are suuper chewy,seem like they have a bajillion more seeds,drier skin,less juicy,more intensely sweet,umm taste like candy and are just flat out amazing.

peanut butter-ed soft whole wheat fig bar with latte at stumptown,ace hotel,nyc

here,we have soft whole wheat fig bars from isa chandra moskowitz and terry hope romero's upcoming cookie book-vegan cookies invade your cookie jar-which should be out next month.i was a tester and wrote about these then-b/c i'v loved dried figs for a long time-surprisingly were my second favourite cookies from testing.they better than fig newton type cookies,and healthy,'s weird.i love the soft crust,crunchy and sticky and honey sweet filling,and how the fact that there's the top and bottom crust with a jam like layer in the centre totally screams"i'm like a fig jam sammich missing peanut butter,so come peanut butter me up!"
and that's just what i do.

Vegan MoFo Day#27-Peanut Butter,Jelly,Grilled Onions,Brussel Sprout,and Tomato Sammich

Peanut Butter,Grape Jelly,Grilled Onions,Brussel Sprout,and Tomato Sammich

okay,how good is jelly in savoury things?
i quess i never really thought of it until i got this smucker's jelly cookbook which uses jelly in just about everything,savoury and sweet.and then i thought about that rayray article from last winter for pb&j 'wings'.

peanut butter,grilled onions,brussel sprout,tomato sammich2

so i decided to pair up pb&j with grilled onions,brussel sprouts,and tomatoes.
it's kind of all about the grilled onions and salt n pepper b/c it way balances out the sweetness,but combined with the tomato is like eating burger toppings.and peanut butter on burgers works,amirite?
and brussel sprouts just because it needed a green and why lettuce when cooked brussels was what i had and i guess makes it feel seasonal.

i mean,look at those grape-jellied grilled onions!delish,right?!try iiiit!or atleast something similar...
