Bake Off

Here was my ugly contribution: cookie dough brownies basically the recipe that is floating around the net with a few alterations like white choc on top and a different brownie base. So it's layer of brownie, layer of cookie dough and layer of white choc. I thought they looked ugly so I tried to make them look better with dark choc on top and it just made it worse, but I think they tasted pretty good.

Anyway, the bake off was amazing. There was something like 38 or 39 dishes. I couldn't taste them all but tried probably over a dozen and then felt sick and very full. Highlights include oreo cheesecake, vanilla slice (which come 3rd), peanut butter choc cupcakes with mini cupcakes on top (second place), cupcakes baked into waffle cones, lemon slice and so much more.

Mr T took pics with his phone and swears he will blog about it tomorrow- here .

For dinner we went to Veg Nirvana with about a dozen people and because there was so many of us and it was sat night it was all you can eat for $25.

The day would have been perfect except we went to the tofu shop for lunch and the boss was being his normal anti-vegan rude self and started harassing poor Mr T and a few others with his crazy arguments like 'veganism is consumerism driven' and 'animals have to die anyway' and shit like that. Mr T was just trying to enjoy his meal and is the gentlest person ever so I don't think we will go back again.

Your brownies look cute and they sound so naughty and tasty.

i'm glad i'm not the only one who has had to deal with mr anti vegan at the tofu shop. finally i'm hearing from someone else having horrible experiences at that shop. i vowed never go to back there after my first time there and haven't been back since.
what's his problem?????

Sorry you both missed it Lena and wanting and kneading. It was the vegan event of the year!

Vegan Pulse, I don't know, but I swear he gets off arguing about it with people we had to drag Mr T out of there and he was like 'we will continue this next time'.

I've read comments about this guy and can't believe anyone who owns a shop and needs customers would be so rude.
