Vegan Whole Wheat Biscuits

 I was craving something baked this morning.

So I made these for breakfast. Since having the ALCAT test done and finding out that I'm intolerant of a lot of major ingredients I used to use I've basically become vegan. Except for pork. And turkey. And some fishes. Ok, so basically no wheat, honey, eggs, chicken, beef and some other fishes..... Ok, so it's more complicated than that.

Anyhow, I used this recipe with no major modifications except, as you can see, I'm a drop biscuit maker. I just don't have enough time to spend rolling things out first thing in the morning - though I guess I could give it a try like that after work.

Favorite Things; Part I

  My mom bought this for me last time she was visiting. We found it at the local DI. 
Isn't it the cutest? 
It goes well with my other little plates and sugar bowls and the like.
Plus it goes well with the house, which still has most of its original trim from 1947.

I've been off and on working on this. It'll be a mighty quilt someday....

It's made out of old cotton shirts. I really like how the colors are going together.

Uhm... Well that's not 'as advertised'

These were billed as 'Leprechaun Gold" and while they have the characteristic green and gold variegated leaves of the variety they don't have little purple flowers....

I'm not upset - I like them all the same. I think they're cute! It's just not what I was expecting after weeks of close watch, waiting, anticipating a burst of purple color along the walkway next to our house.

After all that teasing me with gradually purple-ing buds! Purpling? That's not a word.

 They look like little fairy skirts to me. They're awfully cute. Maybe I'll be a columbine for halloween....
