My mom passed away on October 16, 2022. She had pancreatic cancer so I was prepared for this but it still hard. My dad also passed away from cancer so I was already familiar with the process of what happens after a parent passes this time is different because my mom and I did everything together before. My mom and I were each other’s bubble during the pandemic and we were each other’s social life for a long time. It is a tough adjustment now living in a different city where I don’t know many people without the person that I spent most of my free time with. My moms last words to me were be strong you are strong I will hold on to that. My mom also wrote a goodbye letter to my brother and me. I’m not sure if my brother has read it yet but I want to say if you are going to write a goodbye letter don’t wait until you are heavily medicated and in lots of pain to do it or just don’t do it. I’m holding on to the actual memories I had with my mom the letter has been given to my brother to do wh

March 15, 2017 - lunch at the pan pacific and butternut squash soup recipe

I missed a few weeks of blogging and looking at the pictures I hadn't downloaded yet I missed a lot of talking about food. I attended a wedding and a funeral in the last few weeks and got busy. I wanted to blog today about today so I don't forget. I had lunch with foodie buddy today. It was pouring rain when we met at the skytrain station so we decided to have lunch at the Pan Pacific as we could get to it without going outside. Lunch was finished when we went there but they had a bar menu. The view was amazing. We watched the harbour air planes come in and also saw people running really quickly on the roof of the convention center assuming they weren't supposed to be doing that.

The drink menu had non-spiritied drinks I was trying to choose between two different ones. The waiter suggested which one I should try. I can't remember what was in it but thought it was okay and overpriced.


Our food was much better. I had the mushroom ravioli and foodie buddy had a seafood club and salad. The thing that was wierd about the seafood club it had seafood and I think salmon fillet and also bacon even as a vegetarian I know that bacon and seafood aren't the right mix. My friend pulled the bacon out of the sandwich. My raviloli was really good and the king oyster mushrooms on top were very tasty. Our server was also very good it was a nice lunch.

The 40 day countdown to my fortieth is on right now I intended to eat healthier and workout for 40 days but its only day 38 and I wasn't very good today. I did upgrade my beachbody on demand membership after a few trials of country heat I know this is the workout for me. It is my program of choice for the next 30 days. Country heat is a line dancing workout my Autumn Calabrese the maker of 21 days fix. The workout isn't hard but the workout is fun and I have met her in real life and she really looks like she does in her pictures in real life of course it is 80% diet and I haven't looked at the diet part yet.

I visited whole foods on my way home and got things to make soup in my soup maker. This turned out perfectly I made a few earlier versions that were too bland, this time its very tasty.

 Put one tablespoon of Ghee (grass fed clarified butter), the box of vegetable broth, the small container of pico de gallo, and frozen butternut squash in soup maker. Add water to line.
Close lid press button on smooth.
Wait for buzzer and you get this amazing soup.
