I am in a New Year's Eve Food Coma.

I bought a Field Roast Celebration Roast about a week ago and thought I'd make it today. Never had it before so it was my first time trying it. I roasted it in the oven on a bed of onions and poured over an orange juice/soy sauce/olive oil marinade and let it roast for about 45 minutes.

What a feast! The roast was really really good, it was tender and tasted really flavorful. I prepared the gravy using a tub of Tofurky "giblet" gravy and whisked into it over medium low heat: 2 TB olive oil, 1 TB orange juice concentrate, 1 tsp. soy sauce, 2 tsp. mixed herbs (sage, thyme, rosemary), 1/4 cup red wine and black pepper. I let it simmer until it thickend a bit.

Hello Magical Coconut Cookie Bars from Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar! These are before they are cut into bars.

They don't look much like the photo in the book but who cares? These are freaking delicious. The layers go like this: cookie crust (made out of crushed CATS Cookies for People from Trader Joe's), coconut milk/brown sugar concoction, chocolate chips, sweetened coconut and chopped walnuts. Sugar Coma.
