Vegetable Soup or Vegan Cheese Sauce?

Image
  I find it amazing that I can throw some vegetables in the soup maker press a button and after 25 minutes it transforms into something super delicious.  This morning I defrosted some pizza sauce and then did not feel like making pizza. I thought I would try a vegan pizza soup.  I had a giant sweet potato so I cut some into fry shapes and added the not good looking pieces into the soup maker. Then I added some vegan better than bullion chicken flavour. Half an onion, water, cashews, nutritional yeast, pizza sauce, curry powder, Mexican seasoning and water. I usually add some fat to the soup maker I forgot this time it turned out great.  While the Soup maker was working I tossed the fries in cornstarch and sprayed with avocado oil. Then air fried them for 12 minutes. Adding a little oil part way through cooking.  The soup tastes amazing and was a perfect dip for my fries.

Small Business BC Vancity Seminar and Instagram

I have some catching up to do on blog posts and there will be some catch up posts in the next couple of weeks. I took a vacation and also took one from blogging but I have a lot to write about. I am going to start with a quick update about today.

Today I attended a free seminar that was put on by small business BC and Vancity. I really initially signed up for it because the location was a short walk away and free breakfast. It ended up being a great networking event I met a few people I have actually met from other seminars or events I have attended in the past and met a few new people that are involved in the business community. If I was actively involved in a business currently which I am not,  I would have made some great contacts today and found some potential new clients. I highly recommend attending community networking events if you have the time. These networking opportunities are invaluable. I know they are very intimidating if you have never been to any and you go by yourself. I actually used to be a very shy person and going in to a room full of strangers was not my favourite thing to do. I used to try and get friends to go with me but they are busy and I do meet more people when I am on my own. I always seem to meet people and usually their are people I know from other events but if I am ever in an awkward situation I just get some food or go to the bathroom and wait for the event to start.  I didn't win any of the door prizes this time but they also have great prizes and a limited number of people to win them. I did get a free promo code for a course at small business bc that is $50 regular price.  I also had an excellent free coffee and muffin provided by cafe Divano and a really good free lunch provided by Pasta Polo.

The other great part about attending this event is I met someone who worked for a company that I have had some issues with. This person remembered me from just being around and she was actually able to make me a little happier with the company by giving me a credit and listening to my problems which I didn't get results on by dealing with head office. It really puts the company in a better light when their employees have the power to resolve issues and provide great service when you aren't in the place of employment.

The other highlight of the day I have been avoiding getting an instragram account for awhile now but it seems to be the new way to get contests or free samples. I met someone in marketing today that suggested that Instagram is just a necessity now so I finally did it. Follow me on livingvancouverloca.
