Go Joe! And Obama!

Joe Biden totally kicked Sarah Palin's butt in the debate last night! She's so stupid...she didn't answer a single question. She just kept darting around the answers by talking about John McCain's stupid energy policy. Whatever. Obama's gonna win anyway!

To celebrate our eventual victory, my friend Nathan and I had a debate-watching party at his crib in Cordova. I made Joe Biden's recipe for Oatmeal Cookies:


I found it on the internets, but of course, it had to be veganized. I just subbed Energy Egg Replacer for the eggs, and I cut down the amount of oatmeal and raisins cause the original recipe called for 3 CUPS OF OATS!

These were pretty darn tasty! And I made little flags using tiny pics from Google Images and party toothpicks.

I just love Joe Biden! He's super smart and I love his crazy big smile. And well, Obama is a dream! Seriously, if he wins (and he will), this place is totally gonna change for the better.

BTW, if you're not registered, do it before Monday! That's the deadline!

Here's Joe Biden's (Vegan) Cookie Recipe
-------------------------------------------------------
  • 1 cup Earth Balance
  • 1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • Energy egg replacer equal to two eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups old fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • nuts (optional)

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Sift flour, soda, cinnamon and salt together. Beat together the shortenings and sugars until creamy. Add egg replacer and vanilla; beat well. Add flour mixture, oats and raisins and mix well.

Use portion scoop and drop onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 10-12 minutes (should be golden brown in color).

Obama is totally gonna win. I'm glad the press hasn't been as easy on Palin as I was worried about (with the low expectations and all) since she somehow managed to get up their and recite some stuff :)

I love your flag idea!!!

I'm with Betsy-- I didn't really know much about Biden until last night, but now? Well, let's just say if he were running for president, I'd have to go with him over Obama! He was awesome!

Peggy the Veggie said...

Mmm, those look like excellent cookies. And go Obama! I wish I were old enough, and that I were American, just so that I could vote NOT for McCain & Palin.

I love your optimism. I decided I will move to New Zealand if McCain/Palin win the election. Well, only if I can convince Food Fight to come along and set up shop near me...

The cookie flags kick butt. Crafty crafty.

I hate to say it, but after watching Biden have his way with Palin, I wanted Biden for president. He was awesome.

Shenandoah Vegan said...

Go Obama! Joe Biden would never shoot wolves from a helicopter (I don't believe).

Bex said...

it'll be just like cooking with joe right in my own kitchen.

shellyfish said...

Woo Hoo for Joe's cookies! It is so hard being a US ex-pat and having to explain how Bush could possibly still be in office...and how people could be contempating voting for McWar & McBarefoot & Pregnant. Ugh.

Nikki Douglas said...

I love Joe Biden and Obama will kick those Republican freaks to the curb!

The Vegan Snorkeler said...

Vegan_Noodle said...

How could Biden NOT win that debate? I love your cookies! I made presidential cookies for tonight's debate! Smart women think alike ;-)

vegannifer said...

That debate was some of the most entertaining TV I've seen in a long time. The only thing more entertaining was the SNL parody of it.

Great job on the vegan Joe Biden's! They look delicious!

Get ready for tonight's Pres debate... :-)

jelymo said...

Megan said...
