If you haven't checked out Beastmomma's blog, you should stop by. She has a gift for writing. When I read her blog, it makes me look at my own experiences in a new light.
I made the banana date scones from veganomicon. They were good, but not as flaky as typical scones. Probably because of the bananas - they always give a strange texture to baked goods that I'm only 80% in love with. Banana bread is a different story, it gets 100% love.
They did taste better texture wise the 2nd day. Maybe that's the trick w/ banana items.I cut the amount of dates in 1/2 because the recipe called for 8 oz, which worked out to be about 40 dates. I really liked the mix of finely chopped nuts and the dates.
Back to the current year's calendar:
June: Tubs - He likes to hide in the grass. He thinks he's being stealth, but I can almost always find him. Though he must have some skills, because on the rare occasion when I let Kobie in the cat cage, Kobie can't find him. So much for Kobie's sense of smell.
July: Chippy - I have a lot of pics of the cats on the concrete stackup. They love it. Makes for a repetative cat calendar :(
August: Faline - You can't see it very well in this smaller version of the pic, but I altered her tag to say "I like to lay around all day and eat catnip". Nobody noticed it in the calendar (where you could totally read it).
