Father’s Day 2014


For this year’s Father’s Day, my family (including extended) decided to do a potluck instead of going to a restaurant.

I didn’t make/bring anything because I wasn’t told of the plan change until the day before.Β I probably would have made my tortellini (so easy and a big favourite!) had I known about it beforehand.

Anyway, here’s what was brought by everyone.

Boba, please! Bubble tea is the superior autumn drink because you can have it all year round!

Almond gosh! Another pumpkin spice thing?! πŸŽƒ
β €
It's not new but I recently tried @traderjoes' Pumpkin Spice Almond Beverage. It's vegan, gluten-free, soy free, and lactose and dairy free.
β €
To be honest, the only pumpkin spice thing I've tried is the drink from Starbucks and I rarely go to Starbucks. This has a strong cinnamon punch. If anything, it should be called 'Cinnamon Almond Beverage' because that's all I taste.
β €
It's not too sweet. It's got a creamy feel and is slightly smooth. You can definitely see the spices in the drink. It's not the greatest but not the worst. It actually grows on you.

Would I repurchase it? Nah. I'll stick to the traditional almond drinks.

I like saving the Earth for future generations and other species a choco-lat more than eating meat πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸ°
β €
Had the Chocolate Caramel Cake from @ikeacanada at the end of September. Very rich and definitely hits that sweet tooth! While I've been vegetarian for a bit over a month now, that doesn't mean I can't eat delicious foods. The stigma against vegetarian/vegan food is ridiculous. I've been vegan in the past and I've had just as good vegan/vegetarian food as meat-containing products. If you know how flavours work, then you know how to make something delicious.
β €
Also- I'm not shaming people for eating meat. But, with climate change, it's best if we all eat meat a little less. The carbon footprint in the meat industry is a great one and we all can do our part. Have Meatless Mondays, or make it a habit to make at least one meatless meal a day.
β €
Climate change is natural phenomenon. It will happen and has happened before. BUT, it's the rate that it is occurring at which is the problem. Humans and other species on this Earth will not surviveβ€”the Earth will and adapt. So, let's try and keep the Earth habitable for all the babies and their future kids, and all the other species.

The days of smelling like grease or smoky barbeque after a meal ar-gan. (Swipe ⏩)
β €
Thank you @influensterca for sending me this #complimentary bottle of @Dove Body Wash Mousse! Already loving the smell from the "scratch and sniff" part but cannot wait to actually try it out!
β €
Also- keeping it real with this selfie taken in the bathroom, where I'll be using this product ✌️

There's nothing fishy about these golden filets 🐟
β €
Before I went vegetarian, I RARELY ate fish. The main fishes I ate were tuna and eel. But I've had fish and chips before, so I know what to compare when trying out the @garden Golden Filets.
β €
Maybe because of the grease, it really gave off that fishy, seafood smell I've encountered with fish and chips here. But after a while, it subsided and I was able to enjoy it. The soy taste isn't as prominent in this as other Gardein products but you can still see that because of it, the texture isn't the same. However, it is a good alternative for new vegans/vegetarians that cut out fish.
