Double chocolate, fall harvest and veggie meatloaves

This morning, I've been listening to Ryan Adams and making mini vegetarian meatloaves. First though, yesterday's dose of food and autumn:

Double chocolate chip cookies to take to the Writing Center meeting. My oven is too small to fit a cookie sheet, so I've been baking cookies in a cupcake tin, either giving the cookies a perfect round shape, or an odd crater-like shape (as can be seen in the following):

Mom sent me these awesome boxes.

Yay Dub C meeting!

Now for fall harvest:

Went to the Idaho Botanical Gardens for the Harvest Festival. Lots of organic produce, jams, breads, hot food vendors, etc, as well as a scarecrow path where different clubs. businesses, and organizations have made their own scarecrow. I'd love for the EMA and/or the Writing Center to make one next year! I was really excited too that Boise Co-op members got in for way cheaper. The Co-op is tight.

Whoa, the music just shifted to Scissor Sisters. Way different mood.

Beautiful wonderland. If I were little, I think I would have taken off my shoes and tried to live here.

Vegetarian meatloaves! Not vegan, as I used egg to help to keep them together. TVP tends to fall apart way too easily.

TVP, worcestershire for a burger taste, liquid smoke, tomato paste, garlic, fresh thyme, celery, parsley, nutritional yeast, egg whites, salt, pepper...I think that's it, but I might be forgetting something.

These smelled amazing while cooking! I can't wait to try them later. The edges got caramelized. Suhweeeeet.
