Hey ya'll! It's our last day of debauchery before Lent begins, so laissez les bon temps rouler (or "let the good times roll," as they say in NOLA!). I don't actually celebrate Lent, nor do I live in New Orleans, but no good Southerner misses an excuse to throw a party. Today, I brought one of Kittee Kake's yummy-nummy King Cake's to the office:
Hidden somewhere in there is a white bean dressed up like a baby (thanks to Sharpie) since I couldn't find a plastic baby anywhere.
On Saturday, Stephanie (a.k.a. Poopie Bitch) and I hosted a Mardi Gras Vegan Dessert Potluck for our veggie group Food Awareness. Here we are all decked out in proper Mardi Gras colors:
Steph brought one of Kittee's King Cakes! Hers looks way better than the one I brought to work today. She used more colored sugar ...
I made the Smlove Pie from the Veganomicon:
OMG! This was so good, ya'll. Definitely my new favorite party dessert. It's a chocolate tofu-based pie with a graham cracker crust, peanut butter caramel, candied pecans, and chocolate ganache!
Steph also brought some yummy Half Blondies/Half Brownies. So good (and believe it or not, my first blondie experience)!
Corey and his girlfriend (I can't remember her name! I'm such a bad party host!) brought some non-alcoholic Darjeeling Sangria Tea, which we promptly spiked with vodka (hey, it was a Mardi Gras party!):
The lovely raw Judith made a savory Raw Bread (garnished with fresh daffodils!) to prevent us from going into sugar comas:
Overall, the event was a huge success. We all gorged on sweets, sipped tea and hurricane cocktails, and let the good time roll:
