Chick-Fil-A copy cat but vegan

  I have been watching way to many copy cat YouTube videos lately. I have never even been to Chick-Fil-A but decided to make the sauce after I saw the recipe on Raphael Gomes channel. The only things in the sauce that are not already vegan were mayo and honey I have access to vegan substitutes.  I found the vegan honey didn’t taste like honey it’s less sweet and has a darker flavour like molasses. It’s good though. Recipe is simple mix ingredients in a jar I didn’t follow exact measurements. I then let it sit in the fridge for an hour.  That looks pretty close to the pictures I have seen of the sauce. It tasted pretty good if I make it again I will add more honey as it wasn’t sweet enough I didn’t account for the milder taste of vegan honey.  I live close to a no waste grocery store and they sell beyond tenders by the piece. I had waffle fries in my freezer and use my airfryer to heat the tenders and fries. The tenders are a little expensive so I didn’t want to experiment with doing an

What has been happening in my life part 1 2022

This is a catch-up series with what has been happening in my life post. It has been awhile since I have posted because things have been really busy. I have lots of exciting things I want to post about so hopefully I will be able to post more regularly in the future.

Vancouver 


Let’s go back about a year. My mom and I lived within walking distance of each other in Coquitlam which is in the Greater Vancouver area. We both thought we would never leave BC this had been our home for almost my whole life I never thought I would leave. This blog url even has Vancouver in it.

 It was still the middle of the pandemic. My brother had two small kids in Ottawa. My mom and I both met my nephew when he was two weeks old just before the pandemic. I visited Ottawa during the pandemic to meet my niece when she was 2 weeks old. My mom had never met her granddaughter as she was uncomfortable going on a holiday during the pandemic. My nephew was very confused on how I got out of the TV when I visited as we had only video chatted. My mom and I were talking one day and decided we should both move to Ottawa to be near the kids. This was a conceptual plan thinking it would be a year or two in the future. 

Visiting Ottawa

We had already signed a contract with the Realtor. The house was going to go up for sale in April. A couple weeks before my mom thought she had food poisoning. She was sick for a bit but we still did things like going for walks she thought she was recovering but still feeling like after one has the flu. I had booked her a drive through appointment for her vaccine booster dose about a month earlier. She went to her pharmacist to pick up a prescription and asked if the pharmacist could do the booster dose instead. When she went to the pharmacist he told her she was jaundice and she needed to go to the hospital. She went to the hospital and they found she has pancreatic cancer.

My mom was scheduled for surgery within a couple weeks. The house was already to go on the market but what if she passed away the house would go into probate causing delays. The realtor was great finding us a lawyer to get me on title so I could finalize things.


Coquitlam 


My mom has surgery and the house went up for sale while she was recovering. Twelve years ago when I bought my apartment my mom made me buy a sofa bed. I complained for the last twelve years it had never been used. My mom stayed on that sofa bed during her recovery it was nice that it got used and it was so much easier to do showing while not living in a staged home. 

There is a lot more to my story so there will be a few more posts. I have forgotten a lot of what has happened as there has been a lot. We have had a lot of great people helping us and things right now are as good as they can be.
