    Wow, those two bar meals look fantastic! There is an awesome vegan bar here called Pine Box Rock Shop that serves a variety of vegan bloody marys and the like but I think the food is just kind of nosh stuff – tots, empanadas and the like…Nothing on plates like that! The pizza sounds wonderful as well.
    Love the sound of a vodka-soda night. That’s my kind of time, loud singalongs obligatory!

    I don’t know what’s with me a sweet potatoes lately, but that puree looks awesome – and it’s just a purΓ©e.

    The dishes at McCoy’s look wonderful. Sadly, there are no good vegetarian or vegan places to eat where I live. Heck, there are rarely even vegetarian or vegan dishes offered beyond salads and pastas. It’s not a huge deal for me, but sometimes I’d like something yummy, not filled with meat, that I don’t have to cook myself.

    So out of all of that information, i got stuck on the cookies. LOL Good news for me…I’m currently waiting on that book (and a few others) to arrive. Woohoo! Think I know where I’ll start πŸ˜‰

    Although I had wanted to order a signed copy of your book, I am happy to report that my hubby did get the hint that I wanted your book, signed or not. He gave me a copy this week that he ordered without me knowing. Such a nice surprise. I’m really impressed with it.

    There aren’t many vegan options in my area, unless I’m willing to take a long drive. The closest thing to vegan pizza is when I’ve ordered it without the cheese. Too bad it’s not gluten-free, though.

    Weird, I have no idea why that other post showed up in my reader! I was wondering when you had started P90X again, haha. And now when I go to the post I can’t see my comment or your reply. Bloggy-Twilight Zone . . .

    You guys always have the best eats Amber – at home and out! I want to come over! Its so cool that you can order great vegan options in your city. There are no such options in my town or in any of the surrounding cities πŸ™ I swear it was only in the past year that I could find a decent salad here!

    Hi Amber!
    I’m really enjoying your cookbook! I made two (!) of your recipes today that I’m in love with: the Apple Pie Oatmeal and the Sesame Almond Noodles. The oatmeal was like dessert for breakfast–but healthy AND low-fat! I was unsure about how I’d like the raw apple slices in it but I sliced them really thin and it was just perfect. I made my own fresh apple juice for this, which I highly recommend to everyone, if it’s possible for them to do. Sesame Almond Noodles–my new favorite noodle dish, seriously! I had to make them cooked with whole wheat spaghetti, as I could not find kelp noodles at Whole Foods. This dish was perfectly seasoned and I followed the recipe exactly. I also really enjoyed the basic green smoothie. It was so simple and delicious. I could not believe how much energy I had all morning after drinking it. Can’t wait to try more recipes!!! P.S. I will be putting these 3 recipes in my regular rotation.

    Oh, that pizza!! And I love your story about drinking vodka sodas and singing along to potential wedding songs. Y’all are too damn cute.

    As for what Matt said at the gas station, he was getting out to pump the gas (I think) or maybe he was explaining that you don’t have to pump your own gas in Oregon. And then he said something like, “I want to pump myself.” Or something. I know it involved pumping himself. πŸ™‚ It was hilarious!

    Also, I plan to put a review of the cookbook on Amazon later this week! I’ve been swamped lately. But it’s on my list of things to get done asap.
