Happy Canada Day!

HAPPY CANADA DAY to my Canadian friends/readers.

I know, I know…  I’m not Canadian.  BUT,  my son attends the University of British Columbia (and yes, my money goes there too) so I feel justified celebrating Canada Day — just a little.  At least that’s going to be my excuse for downing a margarita tonight.  It has nothing at all to do with the fact that this afternoon my whole family is descending upon me to stay for a loooooong weekend.  More on that later.

 

Cheers to Canada Day!

Margaritas are appropriate Canada Day celebration drinks, right?  I don’t have to add in maple syrup to my margarita, do I?  No?  Good.  Just checking.

 

I spent Thursday doing some of this:

And a whole lot of this:

I made 16 (!) pizza crusts today — pre-baked, wrapped up and placed in the freezer.

Tune in next week for my series on:

How to feed a crowd of non-vegans,
keep them all happy,
and not purchase a single animal product.

 

The planning is all done. Now it’s “show time”.  I’ll let you know how it works out.

    I definitely approve of the margarita. Just so you know….
    -Tomorrow is *International Cherry Pit Spitting Day*. After you’ve spit out your cherry pits, you can enjoy a cherry…margarita!
    -Sunday is *Stay out of the Sun Day*. What better way to stay out of the sun, than to sit in the shade with a….margarita!
    -Monday is *Independence from Meat Day*. Seriously. I believe margaritas are vegan….
    -Tuesday is *Bikini Day*. How will you have the courage to go out on the beach in a bikini? Drink a margarita first!
    Actually, that’s too much drinking. But we must enjoy a margarita together if I end up getting the job!

    What about baby Ryder? No milk for him?

      Too funny. You really need to start your own blog and share this stuff with everyone.
      Btw, I said “I” wasn’t buying any animal products. I’m not going to prevent my house guests from buying their own. In fact, for “Make your own pizza night”, it’s potluck style and Carl already signed up to bring the sausage to share. His veganism only goes so far (it stops at the pizza).
