Friday Finds

I know, I owe you guys so many recipes! I’ve been baking, but all things I’ve already posted. Banana bread (you can see that super old blog post here) and waffles (last summer’s discovery here). I have yet to attempt aquafaba but it is certainly in the plans. I am spending every waking moment outside, enjoying the sunshine and my garden. I can’t seem to walk into a garden center without dropping some cash and buying new planters, new plants . . . new bird seed! I’ve never been one to have many indoor plants but I think that needs to change, I hated having nothing living around in the winter. So the world is speeding along and I often feel like we are just caught up in the spin. Things happen in the blink of an eye, let’s see what happened this week.

Obviously the Brexit is foremost on most people’s minds today. I have family in England and am curious to hear their take on all this. It seems incredibly short sighted, but all the way over here in Canada I suppose I’m not one to say. I did see an interesting graph which showed the vote divided by age. It would appear that those who will be living with this decision the longest voted to stay in the EU, which is a sobering and frightening thought.

I have read a lot of recipes about jackfruit and these vegan jackfruit tacos look like the perfect place to try it out!

I discovered a new place for breakfast that I absolutely love. It’s called Cardinal Rule and it’s delicious. The perfect place to go for all day breakfast with your omnivore friends, there’s loads of options for you and for them. The scrambled tofu was some of the best I’ve ever had. Highly, highly recommend! I would devote a blog post to them, except I was too hungry and ate all my food before I could sneak in a picture!

This is a fascinating watch, What Happened Before History.

And speaking of history I’ve recently gotten in to this podcast, Stuff You Missed in History Class. I love history (I often wish I could go back and do another BA majoring in history, just so I learn more!) and the detail they go into is fascinating. They cover such a wide array of topics and time periods, there’s an episode for everyone no matter what you’re interested in.

And for those of us who care, an interview with Brian Fuller about the new star trek tv series. Keeping up Star Trek’s history of progressive casting and story lines seems to be a high priority which is refreshing.
