Our trip to Ottawa this weekend was fantastic. The Sens lost 1-0 to the Flames, so Billy was happy and gloating. But I still enjoyed the game. Our cat Logan, and their dog Blue DID NOT get along...hint: Never try and break up a cat/dog fight! I have a huge gash on my middle finger, several scratch marks on my arms and a claw mark on my foot...I almost needed a blood transfusion this weekend. Blue was not vicious, he was just used to acting a certain way with their cat, and Logan was not having it. This picture is of Blue escaping the wrath of the cat...who freaked out if he got too close... I love how possessed the cat looks!
As always, Billy's parents were amazingly adaptable and had great food for me...soymilk, veggie dogs, sausage links, and pepperoni for pizza. Shirl and Steve made me a yummy veggie pizza with the pepperoni, mushrooms, onions, green peppers, pineapple and tomato. Mmmm mmmm, who needs cheese?
For our "thanksgiving" feast, I brought a tofurkey, with the apple dumplings and giblet gravy. Add in some corn and peas, and you've got a complete meal. Steve actually cooked the roast for me on the BBQ...it turned out great. No pictures of the roast.
Aside from all the pies everyone ate, and my fudge pecan pie, Shirl also set up a chocolate fondue fountain! It was glorious in all its magnificent beauty...that's right, I love chocolate that much. We had all kinds of fruit to dip in it, and the boys dipped in marshmallows too. Shirl made sure to get vegan chocolate to use.
So, that was our trip...I love visiting Billy's family, its like an extension of my own family. Hopefully we don't have to wait until Christmas to do it again.
This week will be a stressful one, so I don't know how much I'll be cooking. I may have to subsist on canned beans and such!
