Westjet economy vs Air Canada business class

In June I knew I was going to Vancouver from Ottawa and if you know me I can’t buy anything unless it’s on sale. If you are new to my blog I lived in Vancouver almost my whole life and last year I moved to Ottawa so I go to Vancouver frequently to visit friends and relatives. The hotel I like to stay at usually sends me a personal promotional rate once a month. See my YouTube video here of the Riverrock hotel suite  Riverrock Hotel Richmond BC The hotel prices in Vancouver had increased significantly since the last time I visited in February. I had started looking to visit in May when I wanted to go to Plant Expo but the prices were too high. I still wanted to visit and I was looking at flights earlier. While searching I thought the business class flight is less than it normally costs to fly economy.  I was tempted to book it and cancel later if the hotel didn’t work out which I didn’t do it but I should have because if I booked it then would have been less than my economy flight I sti

October 16, 2017Attempting to make recipes shared on facebook delish how to make stuffed eggplant parmesan


I know its been awhile and in another post in the future I will give the life update for the last few months.

Since I haven't cooked in awhile I thought it would be fun to try making some of the recipes I have shared on facebook in the past but have never attempted to make before.

The first dish is is from delish How to make stuffed eggplant parmesan and the link is here
Full recipe: http://dlsh.it/vePxgK0

I bought the eggplant a long time ago so I only salvaged around half of it also missing

olive oil - substituted coconut oil
cherry tomatoes - substituted tomatoes that have also been around awhile
oregano - substituted basil and herbamare (free from social nature an herbed salt)
missing - breadcrumbs, parmesan cheese, and fresh basil

The video starts with scooping out the center of the eggplant I just cut what I could salvage into chunks.




 Then sauté the onions in olive oil I used coconut oil and used a bit less onion for my taste




Then add the eggplant


Then add garlic, and seasoning



Then add the marinara sauce lately I have been using costco brand or Rao's I went cheaper today because it was made in Italy and I do not recommend it. Stick with a good quality tomato sauce this one tastes like tomato paste.


Then add tomatoes, egg, and cheese. The magic bullet is the cheapest and fastest way to grate cheese although I wasn't using the correct blade for it. 




Realized I needed a bit more for the top so used a different cup and blade 



and its ready to go into the toaster oven for half an hour


Final Product after 30 mins not to bad considering there was no parmesan cheese in it
