cats and cookies

First, I can't help but laugh at this photo. Dan was laying in bed listening to the radio last night, and I was in the kitchen doing dishes or something. I heard his voice, and peeked in. He said to me, "We're having a very important conversation." This is what I saw:

Silly guys.

I made cookies tonight! I tried the chocolate chip cookie recipe from Joy of Vegan Baking, varied only slightly. (I really, really, really struggle following a recipe as writ.)

I plan to take some to work tomorrow, (one of my coworkers underwent a very unpleasant, but routine, medical procedure last weekend, and had to fast for 24 hours beforehand. These are a welcome back party for her tummy!), and to save some for camping this coming weekend.

So far, I think the cookies are good . . . but my made-up recipe is still better! We'll see how they "age" over the course of the week/end. I have a feeling they will end up pretty crunchy . . . bah. (I likes me a soft and chewy cookie most always!)

Looks like Dan and Oliver were having a very enthralling conversation. What a cute kitty.

I want one of those cookies right now!

I like soft and chewy cookies too! Those *look* like they could be soft and chewy--and they look delicious too--I am sorry they are not!

Dan and Oliver are too funny--that is such a sweet photo!

I don't think I have ever followed a recipe 100% exactly how it's written. I mean, where is the fun in that?? It's fun to add your own "flavor," so to speak...

I wish you still worked at that kitchen store so you could give me your discount. ;) Man, I love that place!

Cute. I think my boys have very similar interactions.

That picture is very cute. I always hear Marty talking and think he's talking to me but then realize he's talking to our cat. You're so sweet to make cookies for your coworker!
