Birthday Follow Up

Jason's French Toast
I have never, ever liked french toast. The thought of soggy bread sprinkled with sugar made me sick. However Jason grew up enjoying french toast so he decided to make a vegan version. He made his version a few weeks ago and reluctantly, I tried it. He bought a thick, seedy bread and dipped it in a bath of coconut milk, cinnamon and nutmeg. He lightly browned the bread in a pan with a little olive oil and topped with bananas and walnuts. Um yum. Needless to say, I like this french toast so much that he made some for me on Sunday.  Thanks cutie.

We enjoyed lunch at Pho Lang Thang where we could order vegan with no hassle. We each had a small bowl of rice noodles with a topping; Jason and I went with tofu and Elena picked mushrooms. Elena took a few bites, looked out the window and stated "this is the life". I think she had a good day.

Silly Plant Photos
I took a few silly photos and thought I would post them. Enjoy. They may make more sense after a few adult vegan beverages. Maybe not.
