Weekend Recap!

Hey guys!

The weekend is over again!  Amazing how quickly it whizzes by!! :)

We had a pretty mellow weekend…  went out for Thai food with some good friends on Friday night!!   Here’s a photo of the left overs!  YUMMY! Lemongrass chicken, red thai curry and another savoury curry all over coconut rice!!

Saturday morning started off with a breakfast cookie!!!

Then we heading down to the market to visit my favourite Vegan Baker!!   We were super late (I had the times wrong) but we still got some yummy goodies… (and I took the worlds worst photo with my phone!   This was delicious, but I don’t remember what it was called!! haha :) 

Photo0049We also picked up some orange/basil fresh pasta with dairy free pesto…DSC_1266

  And a bunch of cucumbers… because of my silly time mix up, there wasn’t much left… so we’ll have to go another weekend!!

Then I (dragged) convinced D to go to the smoothie/raw/juice bar to escape the blustery weather…

Here is his excited face…

He got a pear, apple, lemon and ginger juice!

And I got a mango smoothie…

Love this place… it’s dangerous!  They had RAW, VEGAN turtles chocolates… but I’d already spent too much $$!!!

Later that day we headed to a newer restaurant and I had the “VEGINATOR”  (sorry phone pic again)

It was huge and good… until I realized that the “rice cheese” contains dairy…  BOO!! (after I had eaten it) It didn’t bother me too much, thank goodness – I’m assuming that there wasn’t much dairy in it. 

That’s our Saturday in a nutshell!!

Salmon Cakes!!

Mixed it all together and pan fried it… 

I made some mini ones just for fun, served on a Mary’s Cracker with a pesto topping

So cute!!  Then I served the bigger salmon cakes over sautéed kale.

Yummy they were good!!  Next time I would add some green onion!! The left overs are great too!!

That was pretty much our Sunday, unless you want to hear about Therapy or Psychological Disorders!!   Which is what I was studying!! :)

Hope you had a fabulous weekend!!!!!!! 

Ciao for now!

  4. Yummy weekend! I love it! I didn't know rice cheese had dairy. We use almond cheese, so good and lots of protein. It has Casein but thats it. Good luck studying.
