Day 251: final barbecue of the year to celebrate my parents’ 40th wedding anniversary.
Day 252: having been unimpressed with the Daiya vegan block cheese I did not have high hopes for the shreds but they weren’t too bad. I tried them on a pasta bake in the oven and a microwave nachos and they don’t ruin the meal like all the other vegan cheeses I’ve tried. Still not great though 🙁
Day 253: Zach’s first day back at preschool and the start of him doing full days. I felt quite bereft for the 6 and a half hours of child free time.
Day 254: after the disaster of my two batches of vegan cookies that failed miserably, I have been reluctant to bake but with Anya’s birthday coming up I wanted to have a go at a cake and blimey it was spectacular!
Day 255: I ordered a Christmas dress for Blog On but I think they sent me a szie 18 instead of 8. Here it is against a normal top of mine. The Ebay seller was a pain to get hold of but eventually agreed to accept a return (still waiting for the refund…)
Day 256: have you ever seen a less impressed dog in your life?! Zach wanted to be a puppy again so was trying to copy him. Poor old Ol!
Day 257: new vegan product from Nescafe that I picked up at Tesco. My mid morning mocha used to be a daily relax essential in my routine for about 20 years and it was one of the hardest things to say goodbye to when I became vegan. These lattes don’t have the chocolatey flavour but maybe they’ll make a mocha soon…
