Happy Halloween! I hope everyone has had a weekend full of costuming, scary movie movie watching and festive treats…or whatever it is that makes you smile (or scream!) during this special time of year. Tonight I plan to dress up in my homemade wind-up doll costume and hand out candies to lil treat-or-treaters. I spent Friday night out on the town in my nifty costume with friends and on Saturday my man and I enjoyed a scary movie double feature. During intermission we wanted a festive treat so we decided to make pumpkin cookies. We veganized this recipe from All Recipes and omitted the frosting. They were scrumptious (and quite easy)! These went perfectly with the strong coffee we brewed to keep us up for our second thriller.
Boyfriend and I have a little tradition of making waffles on weekend mornings that we spend together at his house. He has a fancy waffle maker and all. This weekend we jazzed our waffles up a bit by adding the remainder of the canned pumpkin we used in the cookies (about ½ a cup). They made for a great weekend breakfast.
We use Bisquick for our waffles and just follow the recipe on the side of the box, subbing soymilk and egg replacer for the non-vegan ingredients.
Today also marks the last day of VeganMoFo! I’m a bit sad, however I am so, so happy that I made it through and kept up posting on an almost daily basis. I’ve learned a lot and added quite a few new blogs to my reader as well. It’s been a scream!
