I was quite a lucky lady this weekend as I was the date of my good friend Jimmy to his work Christmas party. I love getting all dressed up and I love being peoples dates to events like this, even weddings. I'm not shy and don't need to be baby sat so I think I make a good date. Lol.
I didn't ask Jimmy about the menu for some reason but figured I wouldn't be eating much BUT low and behold, Jimmy made sure there was a vegan meal for me. I think there was 1 other vegan and a few vegetarians that were more than happy to go vegan for the night as it makes it a lot easier on the kitchen. The party was at the Coast Plaza Hotel in Tsawwassen. They were wonderful. They prepared a meal that was delicious and looked very nice and colourful. Much better than the meat option if you ask me. Lol (Maybe I'm biased).

It was a lovely evening and was nice to meet some of Jimmy's friends. His friend Janine (Niner) just went vegan 2 months ago. So it was cool to chat shop yah know?! She had a lot of the same books and some that were new which of course I've now forgotten the name of them so I will need to get on that. Even though I have about 30 unread books on my book shelf. Lol
If I haven't mentioned before I have a slight mustard addiction. I just love it. And right now I'm all about the whole grain mustard. YUMMMMMM. I picked up this bottle on Saturday and am almost done. LOL I started dipping crackers in it and putting it on my rice, well almost anything really.
I also put up my Christmas tree on Saturday. Took all of 5 minutes. LOL I have a rather tiny apartment, so I need a tiny tree. Sorry for the lighting. It was tough. lol
