My first vegan baking experience, which I suppose was technically a failure because I didn’t know the sugar I bought was processed with animal bones. Aside from that, they didn’t suck! They didn’t get all golden like cookies made with butter do, so I stuck them under the broiler to “brown” some of them. That was stupid. That batch just looked like cookie toast.

I have had no problem going a week without eating meat, which is as I expected. A friend loaned me “Eating Animals” by Jonathan Safran Foer, which I recommend reading even if you aren’t looking to stop eating meat. I didn’t know a whole lot about how we farm animals in America, so it was certainly enlightening, to say the least. I’ve also amended my previous approach to eating – I will not be eating fish. I’ve also been slow-going at only consuming non-factory farm dairy and eggs, mostly because I didn’t realize how much of my existing food has milk in it, but that’s still my overall goal. I’m pretty sure I’m off meat for good at this point, but giving my pantry a total overhaul is going to take some time.

In other news, the weather here taken a turn for the obscenely cold, so if you don’t hear from me for a while, I’m hiding in the fleece fortress that is my bed.
