Store Run

Olivia had a major craving for chocolate milk, so we headed to the Co-op. Wish I had my camera with me because she was so cute pushing her own kid-sized shopping cart through the store. I picked up some house regulars, and also found some new exciting things. I'll put a * by the new stuff:

1. *organic smoky tempeh strips
2. *spelt sesame sticks
3. *vegan spelt donut (sugar free lemon glazed)
4. organic frozen mixed vegetables
5. two packs of Tofu Pups
6. organic walla walla sweet onion
7. two boxes Nature's Gate Creme De Mint Toothpaste
8. pint of Chocolate Silk Soymilk

Hi vicki, now your sea is on my desktop ;-) the tilamook photo was so relaxing i couldn't resist!hope you don't mind.

The photos on my page have been taken by my mom during her honeymoon in sicily.Did you see the stall with all those spices, looks like egypt or somthing ;-) we're not used to them-i mean the stalls- here in the north!

School's good,even if i'm always short of time and when i'm done with work & everything else, i'm so tired to start studying! ;-)

I commented about the donut's on the plate/book page and now I will comment about them on the donut page.

Kai mentioned Usborne books. I had several Usborne parties when the kids were younger. For me it was a great way to get some good educational books for our homeschool at a price that stretched my budget pretty far.

I'm really looking forward to seeing your leftover cooked grain (like quinoa) muffins. How interesting! I have made vegan muffins that had quinoa and barley grain in the blender (I added koko bits to them), but the grain wasn't cooked first.

Vicki, those tempeh strips are really REALLY good!

Tofu Pups are quite tasty, tho I like the Smart Dogs a liiiiittle bit better. What do you say to that?

Mmmmmmmmmmmm... I'm big on the Silk chocolate as well...

Good stuff!!

I love the pint-size shopping carts. I saw two little girls marching around the store with them filled with pet toys this afternoon, where my beau was working taking photos of peeps and their doggies... adorable!

Love your vittles!!!

I'm intrigued by the smoky tempeh strips. A lot of products mentioned on veg*n blogs and sites aren't available in Canada. Since I'm only about 45 minutes from Niagara Falls border, I go over a few times a year and stock up on what's not available to me here. What brand are these strips. I can't really make out the name in the photo. I'm assuming they are like bacon? Also, lemon glazed donuts sound delicious!

Carrie, i do believe those are Lightlife brand tempeh strips, and they are supposed to be like bacon.

Let me know how that doughnut was. I've seen it before and haven't had a doughnut in over 7 years. I'd like to try one again but that packaging business put me off a bit. I'd like a tastebud verdict please!

now that's frustrating! i just wrote back to all & it was lost. arrgh. here's a shorter, less creative response...

hi luna: it really pleases me that you have my photo & that you like it. i had a chance to see one of those spice stands in arles, france & it was astounding how many different kinds there were. i'd be so interested in the different foods/spices available to you in italy.

hi tanya kristine: you used to be just like my husband with the choc. milk obsession! we have not tried ALMOND breeze choco milk - and now i'll keep my eyes peeled & try it. i've never liked milk -- very troublesome for my parents when i was a youngster. thanks for your visit.

hi leslie: that doughnut was devoured in 1 second once it was opened - a very yummy treat! the packaging wasn't as bad as i've seen...but i hear ya!

hi dori: usborne consulting sounds intriging, but i already have so many kid's books - when i was teaching, i'd collect my own library. your doughnut machine sounds like fun & i really like that you make your own batter and know what's inside. you seem to have the best kitchen gadgets!

hi kleopatra: art & i prefer yves, and olivia only likes tofu pups. nobody in the house will eat smart dogs - not even our dog, jolie! isn't it funny there are so many variations & preferences on the same thing? your guy is a photographer?! (photos are my big obsession) and taking of people & their animals must be so delightful...& challenging! is he free-lance? you made the call, it's lightlife.

hi carrie: this is my first time buying the tempeh strips, i've seen other bloggers who love these so i wanted to try, i'll let you know if it's worth a run to the border! i've always wanted to visit Niagara Falls - saw a fascinating documentary.

hi harmonia: yes, it melted in my mouth & it's a really good thing there was only 1 in the package.

tempeh verdict: i loved it -- great flavor and texture (nutty & hearty), though don't think it'll be like bacon - it's something unique. tempeh strips. art, liv & abi thought it was ok -- i'll try them again served differently.
