Thomas and Camilla January 2022 Date Day

January 28 2022

Thomas and Camilla January 2022 Date Day, er, as Thomas wants me to call it: Father and son bonding time. 😂🤣😂

Part 1: Lunch at House of Mexica. I think this may be the only all vegan menu restaurant in Reno. Everything on the menu is vegan. We ate outside with this lovely view.

Cheese God Chimichanga for Thomas. Asada tacos for me. Buffalo fries for both of us. The asada tacos and Buffalo fries are my favorite menu items so far.

Part 2: Cat toy shopping for Basil.

Part 3: A lovely walk to end the date.

Praying Mantis – Making Himself Huge With Sushi and Eternals

November 2 2021

We’ve had a lovely visitor at our front door for the past few days. Thomas was going to move him, as we were afraid we might step on the little fella. He wasn’t having it, making himself look huge!

November 5 2021

This afternoon was veggie sushi, followed by a matinee showing of Eternals with Thomas.

I have to share this wasabi powder. It is amazing!! It’s 100% freeze fried wasabia japonica (wasabi). Mix it with water, let sit for 10 minutes, and wow! 💥💥💥 It’s strong! Also this sushi ginger. Incredibly tasty!

The sky was gorgeous when we exited the theater, with both of us agreeing that we liked the movie.

Vegan Eats: Jackfruit Tacos With Curry Butternut Squash and Steamed Vegetables

October 8 2021

I made jackfruit tacos yesterday. They were so pretty, I had to take their photo. Had them for lunch and dinner.

October 13 2021

And then I made a curry, butternut and honey nut squash soup. Good stuff!

October 15 2021

One of my absolute favorite meals. Steamed vegetables over a huge serving of basmati rice, with a few dollops of vegan butter and a few shakes of pink Himalayan salt. 😋😋😋 (and heavily seasoned with my “everyday” seasoning.)

Nighttime Bocce Ball While Relaxing by the Pool Eating the Best Burger Ever

August 3 2021

Bocce ball tonight for me and Thomas.

August 4 2021

I decided it was about damn time and okay if I just relax, and do nothing. Very hard for me. I’m used to always feeling I’m being useful, researching, advocating for Thomas or Lillian, creating some form of art. Whether it’s writing or creating art in some form, or being out exploring Mother Nature. This is okay, Camilla.

That was The Best “burger” I think I’ve ever had. I love these new-to-me vegan pretzel buns I discovered. They have sausage buns, too. Yes. I bought those, also. They are delicious with a “hot dog” and beans spooned over the top.

Movie Night: The Lion King with Nachos

March 13 2021

Lillian and Camilla movie night: Lillian’s choice – “The Lion King” 2019 Live Action version

Lillian says, “Like the songs, my favorite character was Nala, like the moral of never give up, and would definitely would recommend.”

I say, “It was okay. Beautiful scenery.”

Nacho night. This was so good and satisfying! 😋😋😋

Thomas and Camilla January 2021 Date Day

January 23 2021

Yesterday was the January 2021 Thomas and Camilla Date Day

Lunch from House of Mexica (all Vegan menu)

Jungle Tamale and Mexica fries for me. BBQ Mac hamburger and fries for Thomas. Horchata for both of us to rinse it all down.

We had a car picnic with a lovely view at Aubrey Harris park, and then went for a walk at Virginia Foothills park. ❤️❤️❤️

Vegan Eats: Pfeffernüsse With Dutch Apple Pie and a Midtown Quesadilla

December 9 2020

Pfeffernüsse … I may have accidentally eaten three of these right after they were cooled enough for the powdered sugar. Been saving the chocolate “milk” for a special treat. 😋😋😋

December 24 2020

I’m so excited! I ordered a vegan Dutch apple pie from Great Full Gardens South Meadows Reno. Since I had to go there anyway, I ordered lunch for me and Thomas. I’ve never had the midtown quesadilla. It was delicious! I cannot wait to dig into this amazing looking pie, with a side of coconut bliss Madagascan vanilla bean “ice cream”. Yum!! 🤍😋😋😋🤍

December 25 2020

For breakfast? Yes, I did! ❤️🎄🎄😋🎄🎄💚
