Weiners and Nachos!

This past Saturday was my best friend Sheridan's bachelorette party in Little Rock. She's getting married in June, and although nothing is really changing (she lives with and has dated her boyfriend for 10 years), we pretended like this was her last night of real life.

Here's Sheridan and me hanging out on her balcony:

By the way, check out my new "Some dudes marry dudes. Get over it." tee! I ordered it from fckh8.com, and it came in just in time for the bachelorette party!

And here's Brittany and Leslie during our living room dance party:

Though we had a small gathering, the four of us had a blast. After watching Bridesmaids, we got the party started with a Vegan Nacho Bar! Chips, vegan cheese sauce, Tofutti sour cream, homemade guacamole, black beans, black olives, and jalapenos:

Believe me, these nachos were delicious both before imbibing ... and later on in the night after we'd had a few too many glasses of wine. For dessert, I baked some Hearts and Weiner Cookies!

Ha! When I said "weiner" in the post title, you probably thought I meant "hot dog." No ma'am. These are a different kind of weiner. I used the Roll-and-Cut Sugar Cookie recipe from Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar for the first time, and I was really impressed. Too often, sugar cookies get all crunchy after they cool, and I hate crunchy sugar cookies. These were soft and chewy. This will become my go-to sugar cookie recipe.

I love your new T-Shirt! I read this blog for the vegan eats but it's icing on the (vegan) cake that you support your LGBT brothers and sisters.
Keep on!

Ha, you have many friends who marry! I really love your new shirt, too.

I always have to laugh about the term weiner - If you translate this into German, it means "cryer". But those don't cry, they look amazing!

Weiner cookies! They're so cute and pink, haha. Glad you liked the recipe, I always worry that sugar cookies will be boring. I used to love the super-sweet frosted kind that are in every grocery store.
