April08trains April08pasta April08cookies

This weekend has been pretty good to me.
(My weekends finish on Saturday evening because I work all day Sunday and Monday!)
On Friday night we were lucky enough to be child-free, and decided to go out to dinner at a fancy restaurant.
It wasn’t without dramas (the taxis running late and having to postpone our reservation, walking at fast as we could to get there, me ordering something not as nice as abraham’s and wanting to eat all of his, not being able to afford drink or dessert, and most dramatic : me dropping a glass bottle of soy sauce at the supermarket on the way home (!) and having to walk home with legs and shoes splattered in soy!) but despite all of that it was rather pleasant and so nice to spend some time with just the two of us.

Last night, on the other hand, ran completely smoothly. We spent the afternoon setting up some of our thomas track, making yummy scrummy pasta, salad and garlic bread, baking cookies (from the ‘how it all vegan’ book’) and tidying the house. Then in the evening out friends Julie and Gareth came round and our other friends Donna and Lee came round with their little boy too. We sat around, eating up, laughing and playing with the trains. One of my favourite ways to spend an evening!

Comment by Amanda

they look like Smarties, or M&M’s!!!!

Comment by Amy

Yeah : ) Amy is right, they’re dark chocolate M&m’s (which ruins the whole vegan aspect of the recipe, but sure is tasty.)

Sounds and looks as though you had a wonderful time! The cookies look sooo yummy……… my niece requested your chocolate & peanut butter cookies for her birthday present. I don’t blame her…… they’re delicious!

I’m so glad you’re back!
