Neverland Vegan High Tea

Image
 I won a gift card for Neverland Tea Salon and Foodie Buddy suggested we go there because they have vegan high tea. Regular price of the tea is $50 per person which for Vancouver is a reasonable price. We were a little late to arrive as we commuted by transit. The place was very crowded but we were seated and given the menu. The server explained that we could have as many teas as we wanted but you could only one at a time. I ordered an apple black tea for the first one they also have a variety of plant milk choices I requested almond milk.  I ordered the Vegan high tea and Foodiebuddy ordered the traditional. Our platter came with all the vegan items close to me and the other items on the other side. The server explained what everything was but I still had to look up the menu online.  I started by trying the scone. The vegan ‘cream’ tasted like the coconut whipping cream you get at the grocery store. We were only given one container of jam to share but foodie buddy let me have it. The

January 21, 2017 Life update and a twist on the no flour pancake recipe

A new take on the December 18 no flour pancake recipe same ingredients different method. See the end of the blog post for the new recipe.





Sorry I haven't been able to keep up with blog posts. I decided to return to school to learn web development at Red Academy while still working at the schedule has been really gruelling. Changes to my life to come soon. The course has been amazing but super fast paced I am actually amazed at how much I learned in the last two weeks and that I didn't pass out from exhaustion with very little sleep. I am doing the beachbody challenge which involves three work-outs a week and 5 shakeology's a week and that's what I attribute to not getting sick on only 10 hours of sleep during the whole week.

Last week I had a business dinner meeting at Cardero's in Vancouver but I didn't get any pictures. I haven't been there in year's as it is known for its seafood and in the past I felt their vegetarian options were lacking. This time there were a few vegetarian items on the menu. I had a really good salad as an entree it had everything I would have wanted in it potatoes, beets, olives just a few of the items in it. The people that ate seafood enjoyed it and the place is known for its view being right on the water except it was in the evening so I couldn't see much. Everything was excellent.

I also stayed the night at the Ramada limited in downtown. I was a little hesitant as it was convenient and cheap but the hotel was excellent. The staff was the best they called when I got to the room to make sure everything was okay. The room was great except not being able to see out of the window but the window did open slightly. My water also got stuck in the vending machine and the staff was very nice to make sure I received it when I returned from dinner. Breakfast was included but it was really limited okay for the price nothing great. This is a great hotel if you are going to be in downtown for a show and don't want to commute home well worth the price.

If you haven't seen my December 18 no flour pancake posts go read that one now. I saw a food network add that was a very similar recipe same ingredients except the almond butter isn't mixed into the batter. I don't know if the magazine is copying food network or food-network is coping the magazine either way I am sure the slight variation of the recipe is keeping them out of legal trouble. Of course I can eat this every day so I had to try out the recipe.

This recipe is only two ingredients for the pancake part
1 ripe banana
1 egg

Mash the banana and whisk the egg into the batter and cook like a pancake. My magic bullet was in the dishwasher so I just used a fork to mash this time.



Once the pancake is cooked spread almond butter and roll.




I personally liked the first version better where the Almond butter is mixed into to the pancake part. I felt it gave it a better texture. I did find the two ingredient version less sweet and because its plain other toppings could be rolled in. I will probably rotate between the two different methods in the future. Let me know in the comments if there are any vegetarian recipes you want me to try making.
