We all know how much I adore Monica, yes? She gets angry in hilarious ways, she loves controlling everything, and she has really shiny hair. I aspire to be like her in most aspects. HOWEVER. Today we're all about hating Monica. I KNOW!! Bitch needs a slap in the face for changing the food at Phoebe's rehearsal dinner without the bride's authorization. It's worse than it sounds: In "The One With Phoebe's Wedding", Phoebe, the bride and a vegetarian, requests vegetarian potstickers be served so she has SOMETHING TO EAT AT HER OWN DINNER. But Monica in full-out bitchface mode commits an unforgivable sin:
Welcome to the first installment in my "Challenge Accepted" series, inspired by Barney on "How I Met Your Mother" but having literally nothing to do with the show! Today's post answers the request of my friend Sari, who asked for a way to make amazing Rice Krispie-like treats without marshmallows. You could sub a vegan marshmallow, such as Dandies or Sweet N' Sara, into the standard recipe, but a) that gets freal expensive b) that's not very exciting! So, a treaty crisped rice treat using other ingredients??
We're at that point in our Veganizing "Friends" fun when we have to acknowledge the worst mistake my beloved show ever made: Trying to make Rachel & Joey happen. UGH! The worst, right? Even if you didn't like Ross, you still wanted him to end up with Rachel. (It's pretty much the point of the show, though Monica & Chandler's relationship was my favorite.) And even if you are some Crazy McCrazerson who didn't want Ross & Rachel together, there's no way in hayell that you wanted Rachel & Joey together! It's like incest! And weird! Awkward for everyone, and especially awkward for Ross. Which brings us to FAJITAS. (I'm legally bound to use all caps.)
As you may recall, Ross understandably but wrongly decides that the best course of action in response to the news of Rachel & Joey is to pretend that he's fine with it. Not just fine, but fiiiiine. I think he says "I'm fiiiine" about 30 times during the course of this episode. The episode is even called "The One Where Ross Is Fine"! You gotta feel bad for him, even if he acts like a total ass.

I love to cook. Love it! 9 times out of 10 I'd rather cook my own meal than have someone else (especially a stranger! Stranger danger!) make it for me. However, I am not a chef, so my recipes usually are haphazard slapdash ragamuffin mixtures of ingredients. Proceed with caution.
