oreos... a vegan treat... who knew??

Since Meg was out of town for the weekend and was in for a looooong drive on Sunday; Dave and I decided to make both dinner and dessert for Sunday night dinner. For dinner we made quesadillas with a variety of toppings... arugula, sundried tomatoes, cannelinni bean paste, walnuts... and chicken for the boys. This is them:

For dessert we made oreo cupcakes...after finding out that Oreos (that's right, name brand Oreos, are actually gegan)... so we made these deeelicious cupcakes (from Vegan Cupcakes Take over the World!!)... have a look: and one more view - cause it's hard to see in that photo:

that was dinner... and dessert.

i did a little google search and there seems to be lots of discussions around whether or not Oreos are vegan. they are made differently in different countries...plus the company is changing some of their recipes....so what was non vegan last month might be vegan today. your's were vegan though....the only questionable ingredient is the sugar.....but lots of big brand sugar companies have stopped using bone char, ie Redpath/Tate and Lyle.

thanks again for sharing the yummy cupcakey goodness. don't know if dave told you but i made the lemon gem cupcakes from VWAV the weekend i got back! they were great.. and now i'm looking for a recipe to make a white cupcake (hmm.. maybe yellow) with white frosting, dressed in flaked coconut. not sure why, but i think it'd look pretty.
