Things I Love Thursday – Cats, Having the Right Name on Envelopes, Zevia, etc.

I’ve been having a very good week this week. And probably last week too. It’s one of those weeks where things are going so great, and I felt so positive and optimistic, that I simultaneously felt myself bracing for something bad to happen. So, yesterday, something sort of bad did happen. Our newest rescue cat, […]

Things I Love Thursday – Soy milk at Tim Hortons, probably other stuff.

I mentioned this on Facebook, but earlier last week a friend us a picture from the new Tim Hortons in Liberty Village. A Tim Hortons location with soy milk. I wasn’t able to go check it out for myself until yesterday where JC and I have a standing Wednesday lunch date. The same friend that […]

Things I love Thursday (on Friday) and a Sunshine Award from Sarina at Earthgiven Kitchen.

I’ve already written a little blogger love note to Sarina after she sent me a bunch of treats for Vegan Food Swap […]

Vegan MoFo – Challah becomes French Toast.

So last week I made Apple Cinnamon Stuffed Maple Challah, and it was delicious. After we finished the first loaf, I wondered if I could do anything fun with the second loaf – and french toast came to mind. My mom had bought a package of EcoIdeas Cinnamon French Toast mix (it’s vegan and gluten-free) […]

Things I Love Thursday – Middle of June edition.

Sometimes without my reminder on twitter that it’s #TILT day, I would forget it was Thursday. This week has gone by quickly, quicker than usual, for better or worse. Earlier this week I met up with an Edmonton friend at the Pearson International Airport while she was on a layover back from Cancun. I hadn’t […]
