Chick-Fil-A copy cat but vegan

Image
  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

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.
