shoutouts to the planet we keep effing up!
i'm a big fan of this great big wet sphere full of habitable elements.
and by the way,
all this radical expert vegan magic?
it's good for the planet.
so, really, being a plant-based barbarian of brutal truths and uglier lies
makes it so every day is earth day.
it's not just hippies and environmentalists who care about the earth.
oh, and again- if you're not vegan, but you think you're an environmentalist?
nooooooooope. you're not. you're just a person with a recycling bin.
in addition to being psyched about earth, i am also psyched about cookies, too.
check these out:
cookies aren't the biggest most elaborate and most beautiful bunch on the block,
but they're among the best every time-
they're white and dark chocolate chip oatmeal hot fire,
and they're absolutely essential to overindulge in.
too much is the right amount.
i made chocolate-covered gluten-free chocolate chip jauns,too,
but there's no pictures to prove it- so y'all can believe me or not as you choose-
but i can give you the recipe for those spring sprankle babies up there right now.
preheat your oven to 375
in a medium metal mixin' bowl, for maxxximimum aesthetic, cream together:
1 stick vegan butter;
2 tsp vanilla;
1/2 tsp sea salt;
1 cup sugar;
1/4 cup brown sugar.
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce;
2 T agave.
2 cups flour;
1/4 cup oat flour;
1/4 cup ground unsweetened coconut;
1 cup whole oats;
1/2 pkg vegan white chocolate chips;
1/2 pkg mini dark chocolate chips.
stir it, smoosh it, and make four dozen golfy balls arranged on a couple of baking trays,
and put 'em in the oven for 12 minutes.
you could leave 'em like that, and let 'em cool, then eat 'em up...
you could ice the tops and take them to eleven with all that exxxtra candy topping.
you can see what i chose.
1/2 cup powdered sugar, plus 2 T non dairy milk a drop of vanilla,
and the spranx of your choice.
that's how you make Folk Life & Liberty treats, neighbors.
and that's the right way, really, to activate that next-level taste.
i'm a cookie guy.
of all the treats out there, simple circles of super-elite excellence are my favorite.
i prefer them to most other forms of single-service sweetness.
i make a lot, i eat a lot, and i do both often.
i think it's a good plan, honestly.
if everything is aligned, and circumstance is cooperating,
tomorrow is the beginning of baby time.
finally, this little girl is gonna be enticed to emerge.
or induced to accept eviction.
something like that.
breezy is pretty frickin' tough, and a natural at momming,
and while i'm sure she'll be fine,
i'm only really concerned that she might not like me after squeezin' out a little
i think we'd both be okay with a little bitty bitty baby coming down the line.
no matter what, i'm impressed by and determined to be supportive of,
this fire-kissed ragnarokin' redhead as the events unfold along the prescribed path
that spirit and memory have assigned.
fast, furious, passionate, rationally self-interested superheroics
are scheduled to start tomorrow.
it's ALL really really happening,
and that's what it's all been leading up to;
never quiet, never soft.....
