Bake Sale !

A few weeks ago we found out that a family friend has breast cancer. She will have to have 3 surgeries in the next 12 to 18 months. To remove and reconstruct her breasts. She has been a waitress for 15 years at a local restaurant but will not be able to work for at least 8 weeks after each surgery. So we have been working on raising some money for her to pay her bills because she is the support in her family. So we are doing a basket raffle and we had a bake sale a few days ago during the town yard sale day when there are alot of people in town. Of course all the baked goods that I made were vegan. Here are some pics of some of the food a made. The first pic is the German Apple Cake from "The Joy Of Vegan Baking". I made 2 of them.

This is sugar cookie dough from TJoVB w/ Peanut better added to it with just some icing. Simple but yummy.

The Cupcakes are the Chocolate Peanut Butter Cupcakes w/ Chocolate peanut butter Icing also from TJoVB.
I also made Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies and Peanut butter cookies from TJoVB. The last thing I made was The Blueberry Corn Meal Muffins from Vegan with a Vengeance.
I also tried to make the Chocolate Thumb print cookies from VwaV (I think) but the dough wasn't dough it was more like cake batter so I'm not sure what I did wrong but I turned it into something like a brownie for J and I to eat.
My mother, our "Aut's" mom, and another family friend also sent some baked goods. We had a really good turn out.

An Owl flew in to my Car !!!

This is the little Screech Owl that decided to fly into my car through the back window the other day. He Knocked himself out for about 5 minutes then finally came to and started flying around the car. John was all by him self and the owl decided to fly up and land on the dash and stare at him. But I think the owl was ok.

We drove him back close to the spot where he flew in at and took him a little ways from the road. He is "J" letting the little owl out.
The last pick is where the little owl landed in the tree. Look how different he looks in the tree then in the kennel all fluffed out..!
