    • They are my people. They don’t mind it if I call them Indian. It’s an “inside” thing you wouldn’t get…
      Friendship Feast! Friendship Feast! Wow, that surprisingly replaces “Darkest Sketch” quite nicely.

        oh you Indians are soooooooo superior. . . .
        you know where you would be without us?

        November 21, 2011
        • Yeah, probably ALIVE and conquering North America still, you bastards! haha

  5. You’re leaving us..? πŸ˜₯

    I hope you have a wonderful trip! And – Cara, you’re like a food artist, I swear! You’re so creative with these themes.

    November 21, 2011
    • No, my fluffy cloud, I’m not leaving yet. I like to pack early πŸ™‚ But when I go, I will sprinkle little surprises for you along the way (and not the kind that my old cat used to do you once I would get into my bed for the night and find her surprise, aka URINE all over my comforter). Oh no, a much better surprise πŸ™‚
      And thank you about the food artist thingee. I like that combo of words, actually. Oh and guess who I am meeting up with on my trip? I will give you one hint: It’s not Madonna. Wish you lived in Colorado also!!! 😦

      November 21, 2011
      • HA! haha. Man. I spilled my kombucha a little from laughing. You made me waste kombucha! I know all about those surprises. Except I don’t have cats, only dogs. But I’m glad to hear there will be surprises (*sprinkles fairy dust*)

        aw..you’re meeting Ashlae? You’re going to listen to Madonna and bake things without me!? haha. Okay I’m over it. But I wish I lived in Colorado now too. That’s really cool that you’re meeting up! If you listen to Madonna, play “Lucky Star” for me πŸ™‚ I guess I really like the sky.

        November 21, 2011
        • You *do* have a thing with the sky. I love it! And you better not get over us baking without you that quickly. No, that was too anti-climactic for me–I do not approve! Be sad with me because how FUN would that be??! Boooo! I’m sending kitty over to you now to “surprise” you. Eeeeew, those are horrible memories, really…
          P.S. Sorry about the kombucha spill. Truly. *hanging head in shame* I owe you a jar now…

          November 21, 2011
          • Oh, I’m not really over it. I’m just trying to convince myself that I am so that I feel better. I’m squeezing my eyes together right now to prevent the tears from falling. I can be climatic for you if you want..

            NOOO! TAKE ME WITH YOUUU! ( sad classical music begins as I run in slow motion towards..the door? where are you again, LA? Sorry, I don’t have the brightest memory). Anyway..YOU CAN’T DO THIS TO MEEE!

            I only dribbled a little on my chin. But every drop counts! Every drop! (i’m super addicted now).

            November 21, 2011
            • Seriously. I heart you. You make me laugh so hard!!!

              November 22, 2011
  6. Hahaha, more great designs πŸ™‚

    November 21, 2011
    • xoxo Thank you! πŸ™‚

      November 21, 2011
  7. Cuuuute! At first I thought the black olives were jelly beans and was like, jelly beans and grilled cheese? Really?!

    I like that they’re both Daiya grilled cheese sandwiches… some sort of message about how we’re all just people on the inside, even if some of us have braids made out of olives and some of us wear hats made out of peppers.

    Have a wonderful trip!! We are leaving for Oregon for Thanksgiving tomorrow afternoon and uh yeah, I haven’t packed yet.

    November 21, 2011
    • Ohmygoodness Nikki, you had me laughing so hard! You are getting existential on me and the Daiya cheese, though you do make a remarkably valid point. Yes, that is exactly what I was thinking while creating these sandwiches πŸ™‚ Have fun in Oregon!! Enjoy being far, far away from work…

    Aw… these are so you, u wo du hi (Cherokee word for “beautiful” and pronounced: oo wo doo hee. I just want those little guys to feel comfortable so they don’t eat each other before I get to!
    Have a wonderlous trip.

    .

    November 21, 2011
    • Laurel, do you have some Indian blood in you or is that just because you live in an Indian town? haha. I want them to feel comfortable too–they are getting along so nicely. And people said there was tension between the two… What do our history books know anyway? πŸ™‚

      November 21, 2011
  9. Cute little sandwiches!!! I especially like the olive braids, hehe πŸ™‚
    Eeeee—I’m thrilled about your upcoming trip!!!!! I can’t hardly wait!

    November 21, 2011
    • MONDAY! Woo-hoo!!! Blogging friends become real life friends πŸ™‚

      November 21, 2011
  10. Olive braids. Who would have thunk it? You of course πŸ™‚ So cute. Have a safe and wonderful holiday, my friend.

    November 21, 2011
    • Thank you GiGi!! What are you Thanksgiving plans this week?

      November 21, 2011

    Sooooo sweet! So cute I almost can’t believe it! Except then I remember which site I’m looking at and I’m all, “ok, I can believe it…” πŸ™‚ hope you have fun on your trip!

    November 21, 2011
    • ha. Thanks Brooke πŸ™‚ Hope *you* are having fun on your trip as well! P.S. I can’t stop eating kolaches and shortbread cookies…

      November 21, 2011
  12. i love the native american’s hair and the way you were able to make braids! you are so cute! what kind of bread do you use?

    November 21, 2011
    • Yeah, I was stuck for awhile thinking about how to do the braids πŸ™‚ There is a bakery close to where I live that sells a GF and vegan oat loaf that is actually really good.

      November 21, 2011
      • oh wow, that’s awesome. i am so totally jealous!

        November 21, 2011
        • I am realizing more and more that this is a very uncommon feature to live near. Each time I hear this, the more I am grateful for this bakery! Are you still able to find GF/vegan bread around?

          November 21, 2011
  13. Oh these are adorable, almost too good to eat.
    *grabs one and shoves it in her gob anyway*
    Enjoy *munch munch* your *nom nom* trip
