So after stating, here, how I didn’t like figs, it looks like now I’m on a figgy roll.

So there used to be a vegan store (Karmavore), conveniently located just steps from our home. They sold all sorts of hard to find vegan specialty items from food to personal care to clothing. I loved going in there, finding foods I thought could never be made vegan (hello Dandies!) and discovering things I didn’t even know I needed 😉 … Over time, my favourite little store evolved to include an in-house bakery (with their own vegan baker) and a deli counter. And then it evolved again, focusing on food service and dropping the retail side all together 🙁
This weekend (July 1st, to be precise), communities across our nation will be celebrating Canada Day. There will be parades, and festivals, and fireworks galore! Not to mention all the smaller, private parties put on by families and neighbours… I’ve always considered it the kick off to summer, myself.
