Busy as a bee

Well I am sad to say that I forgot my camera for the catering gig :( I realized once I was already half way there...I wanted to turn around, but I didn't want to be late. DOH'. I think it went great, everyone seemed to love the food. It was a fun experience and I hope to do some more in the future. The wedding was beautiful and it took place on my friends family property, seaside of course!

I have been crazy busy...I have painted, packed, moved, cleaned and unpacked a four bedroom home on my own! I feel exhausted, but the end is almost near. It is SO much better to move out in one day apposed to taking one month!  We haven't had the best of dinners lately but I did manage to make this yummy summer tomato and zucchini linguine with fresh basil, accompanied with a vegan cheese toast :)

I think this has been the best summer in record (or at least a very long time) for Nova Scotia. I have spent quite a lot of time at the beach, when I am feeling stressed out I pack up the kids and walk down the street. Last night I went for a dip in the sea. It was so warm.

What do you do to get unstressed?


  1. I am SO glad your catering gig went super well! Too bad about the camera too. When I get stressed I go to the gym becasue I feel SO much better after. Cheers!

  2. This may sound weird, but when I get REALLY stressed, I go to Good Will and poke around through the secondhand clothes and kitchen stuff.

  3. That meal looks so good. What type of vegan cheese did you use?

    When I need to lose some stress I create or go out into nature, usually a bit of both.

  4. Thanks Noelle! Yeah it sucks that I didn't go back and get my camera:( Makes sense to go to the gym burn off stress (and calories:)

    Andrea...I guess anything to get your mind off whatever is stressing you for me!

    Maria Rose....thanks, I used vegan gourmet. It is a product by the vegenaise company. It is the only vegan cheese I can find where I live. It good :)
