My favorite vegetable...and pudding!

And the carrots continue. Thanks for stopping to get these mom :D We still have a couple carrots in our garden, but they always come up so small. So I'll wait it out.

Carrots are by far my favorite veggie (if you can't tell already.) They are soo versatile, raw with hummus, steamed, roasted, stir fried, or baked into yummy casseroles, or muffins, or even stirred into soups.
I love them soo much, I'll go through a bag of full size carrots in 3 or 4 days. No joke.

I can't believe tomorrows really is insane! I've felt pretty chill all week, with a little extra time than normal (NOT FOR LONG!) and not a ton of theatre guild practice. We have cue to cue on halloween, from like 11 AM to 9 PM, so no trick or treating for us! boo hoo. Oh whatever, it is only 9 in the evening after all, its not like I can't sneak out to scope out the few houses that hand out dark chocolate and gum, and just give the milky ways and other candy to my friends :)
Speaking of holidays and such, my friend Emily had a birthday yesterday. Happy birthday Emily if you're reading! The vegan cupcake she gave me was VERY yummy. Some sort of chocolate cake with custard, but there was something really gooey about the cake itself that was awesome.
So about that pumpkin pudding-I've been trying over the past few days to get it right. The other day I almost had it-but it was too "jelly" like. The flavor is spot on, but I can't seem to get the texture. I'll notify you guys the second I get it....silken tofu? Hmm. I'll do more research. In the meantime, I had an avocado to use up so I came up with Raw chocolate pudding! Yum!!
Urg. Natural light can be a bit weird sometimes, especially at 7:30 PM. I need better picture techniques.

Raw chocolate pudding:
8 pitted dates
2 bananas
1 avocado
2 tbsp cocoa powder
2-3 tbsp agave or maple
pinch salt
Whiz together in a food processor. Feel free to add chocolate chips, walnuts, or whatever! This is soo yummy and silky smooth. Definetly reccomend it.
I have some english thesis statement waiting for me to tend to, and some cleaning of my room! Talk to you soon, bloggie.
