I did make some cookies today, totally vegan, totally delicious. They are chocolate cookies – one of the major flavors is strawberry jam. It called for raspberry, which would most likely have been yummier, but the strawberry was what I had, and it was quite tasty, too.
We also had potstickers, asparagus, and rice for dinner. Damn, I can cook. I didn’t use any oil on the potstickers and they turned out just fine. You would maybe miss the crispiness; but the flavor is almost the same.
I was going to mention that if you haven’t read Flannery O’Connor lately, you should. I recommend A Good Man is Hard to Find and The Life You Save May Be Your Own. Just remember when you read her that she was quite the cathoholic, and as my friend mike says, she thoroughly believed you would be going straight to hell when you die. My students are working on writing short stories as though they are O’Connor, and as though they are a character in the the story. How would O’Connor describe you? I shudder to think of how she would describe me. And I laugh, as well. Maybe I’ll post the assignment once I write an example story.
Ok, my eyeballs are swimming. See ya, Sheila
