$5 Footlong and Cake Mix Cookies!
When you're lazy and don't want to cook or spend a ton of money on lunch, take advantage of the $5 sandwich deal at Subway. If you're a vegan, you can easily get a mouthwatering "Veggie Delite" sub stuffed with every vegetable they offer. Make sure you get white italian bread as it's the only bread that's vegan. Also skip the cheese and mayo. Mine has lettuce, tomato, red onions, olives, green peppers, cucumber, spinach, avocado, pepperoncini, jalapenos, mustard and oil and vinegar. I ate half of this for lunch and will have the other half for dinner.
Ok, get ready for a junk food alert! If you're in the mood for quick junk-foody cookies, look no further than a box of Duncan Hines cake mix. I got the idea and recipe for these cookies from Vegan Guinea Pig.
The plain ones on the left were my first batch. They were dropped by rounded TB on a cookies sheet and baked up kind of puffy looking. The frosted ones were rolled in a ball and flattened between my palms and baked up more cookie-like. The frosting is Duncan Hines Chocolate Fudge. As sweet and cute as these cookies are, I will most likely stick to homemade "from-scratch" cookies next time as they are not full of processed ingredients as these are. But if you want a quick sugar fix and all you have in your pantry is a box of cake mix, give them a try!
