This past week was a welcome quiet one. Arthur and Husband had super busy schedules but DeeW and I were able to take it easy at home. On Saturday we went down to Federation Square in the city to check out the Buddha’s Day festivities. Melbourne switched on perfect weather!
I’d hoped to get something to eat. There were lots of foods marked vegetarian but nobody was able to give me a guarantee about vegan options. In the end I gave in to DeeW’s big googly puppy eyes (maybe because I was making the same eyes) and got one of these twisty potato things. I was told they were cooked in oil and that was it. I was starving, I’d never tried one of these before and they smelled soooo good. Only later did I learn from a fellow vegan that these twists are often pre-dipped in a non-vegan batter:
Here’s a random house near Melbourne Uni, snapped while DeeW and I were waiting for the tram:

Have you heard the cover of Don’t Dream It’s Over by Ariana Grande and Miley Cyrus?
I’ll leave it there for this week. Please enter my current giveaway (Leigh Drew’s Veganissimo! and Greenilicious) if you have an Australian mailing address. It’s a pretty sweet giveaway, if I may say so!
