Living on the edge of my emotions - Page 3

post #41 of 45

I normally hate how emotionally manipulative ASPCA ads are, but I can't take them right now!  I have four cats!  Stop showing me sick puppies!  I am doing my part.

Dessert is NEVER something to take lightly. Just in case you get a spur of energy, here's my fav vegan dessert recipe to cheer you up!

 

Vegan Chocolate Silk Pie

 

Crust (you could also cheat and buy a pre-made one)

  • crush 1 pkg vegan graham crackers
  • melt 2-4 Tb Earth Balance and mix with graham cracker crumbs.
  • press mixture into pie pan. add more melted EB if it's too dry
  • bake 350 until golden, usually about 10 minutes

 

Filling

  • chop and then melt 4 oz unsweetened baking chocolate in micro
  • in blender, mix 1 pkg silken tofu, 1/3 c agave or honey, 1/2 c your fav jam (I use blackberry), 1 tsp vanilla
  • add melted chocolate to blender

 

Pour filling into crust and refrigerate overnight.

 

It's the best dessert ever! And, sometimes I'm too lazy to even buy a crust, so I just make the filling and eat it like chocolate mousse!

Oh wow, that pie sounds amazing!

 

I had such a hard time holding back tears at our most recent childbirth class.  They showed birth videos.  I just can't watch those without getting emotional!

 

Then it turned to anger (and embarrassment) because my boyfriend made a quite audible sound of disgust during one of the videos.  He is easily grossed out by anything involving blood or other bodily fluids - even, you know, the miracle of life. 

 

We were supposed to discuss the video with our partners afterward, and I turned to him and said "You need to get over your squeamishness or you are BANNED FROM THE BIRTH."

Oh yum!!!  Thank you for this recipe!  I will make it and eat it with a spoon.  Sheepish.gif

 

And, FTR, I DID get dessert - vegan coconut cream pie - and it was amazing!!  And then I ate what was left of DD's carrot cupcake.  Hmph.  Take that, stick-in-the-mud-DH.

Oh grr. How irritating. My DH is definitely squeamish about birth videos, so I don't usually make him watch them unless there is a specific thing I want to point out. But I have faith that he will be ok at the actual birth because he always comes through for me when I really need his support. I don't mind if he thinks it's gross, he's just not allowed to make a big deal about it!
