Why, as a vegetarian, I don’t lose weight

I don’t cook, people. I don’t bake, either. All of my attempts at becoming a world-renowned (or at least apartment building-renowned) chef have ended in a call to Pizza Hut. However, I’m totally going to make this tonight.

The Pioneer Woman Cooks!: Peach Crisp with Maple Cream Sauce. Brace Yourselves, People.

(In other news, I’m back from the Philippines—hooray! More from me to come.)

    Welcome back, Daniel. I been missing you.

    Welcome back, Daniel. One chunky vegetarian to another.

    Remember the era of vegetarian cookbooks featuring all those recipes calling for “2 lbs. grated cheese”?

    I’m sorry, I know this is cruel.

    You know, most desserts are vegetarian. It’s a funny thing about desserts, and no doubt one of the reasons I have made them my primary food group.

    Speaking of food blogs, this is my current favorite: Bake and Shake.

    Oh, and Daniel? Any photos you can post for us (for which you don’t need to file a dozen clearance forms on account of they document Human Research Subjects)?

    I meant to specify photos from your Philippine sojourn — though photos of the peach crisp would be nice, too.

  7. Daniel Lestarjette on July 9th, 2007 at 4:02 pm

    Yes, I’d be glad to post some photos from the Philippines tonight.

    I’m not sure if the peach crisp is forthcoming, however. I forgot the Kyle hates peaches, and I couldn’t possibly eat a whole one by myself. Could I?

    Thank you, India, for introducing me to Bake and Shake. I loved it the instant I read “I will frost you like a motherfucker.”

    Pioneer woman! Bake and Shake! I spewed! Um, I mean aspirated. Forwarded both links to Danny, he’ll get a great big kick out of them.

    I thought y’all might like Lo. She is foul-mouthed and beautiful. And she likes cake.
