Doing and Eating Good

These peanut butter-oatmeal-chocolate chip and dark chocolate gingerbread cookies could be yours.

All you have to do donate $10 online or bring $5 to the Bonbon Oiseau trunk show tomorrow in Brooklyn. In addition to the bountiful spread of unique designers' jewelry, knitware and stationery (all at steep discounts), there will be a generous raffle basket, the proceeds of which will go to the Food Bank, a nonprofit provider of food assistance and educational and nutritional programs throughout New York City.

(How's that for a run-on sentence?)

This isn't going to be on of those holiday baskets full of things you'll immediately regift, either, like stale chocolate gold coins, a Santa-scented candle and itchy animatronic Rudolph socks. And if you don't win it, there's plenty more cookies and other lovely little gifts for sale.

Come on, I have contact diabetes from all this baking; someone should benefit from that. I'm not done, either. Think caramel, vanilla, matcha, fleur de sel and lots more chocolate- you'll have to come out tomorrow to find out what other sweets will make an appearance.

But first I need to sit down and try some of these for breakfast- just to make sure they're not poison- with a nice cinnamony cup of chai. And to wish myself a happy one-year blogiversary while I'm at it.

Ooooh, how I wish I could be there for a couple of reasons..first I'd love to go to the trunk show and second, I wouldn't mind helping you test those cookies :) They look yummy. I guess I'll have to settle for buying one of those food bank raffle tickets from Deb.
