Vegan bucatini with soy curls, fresh tomatoes, and basil

  A couple months ago I moved from Vancouver to Ottawa. I will save the story for another post. After staying in a hotel for over a month I am finally in my own apartment. I am still getting settled but I was ready to cook a meal.  The area I moved to has everything in walking distance. The neighbourhood has so many good restaurants, shops, and cafes. The area also has a farmers market where I purchased the amazing looking basil and tomato’s. The olive oil is from a specialty oil store. The bottle I bought was from a brand new batch that was delivered today. The vegan cashew cheese was from a vegan festival that was held a few days ago. I bought these ingredients because I wanted to make pasta. I used to use my always pan often when I was in Vancouver I gave it to my aunt before moving. I bought a new set of the always pot and pan. When I only had the pan I always wished I had the pot for cooking pasta. My mom had given me some bucatini that she hadn’t used and I had some soy curls in

What I got for free because I had a birthday and subscribed to marketing campaigns

I am subscribed to many marketing campaigns where I get free items for my birthday. Normally I would get more items this year I am moving to another province soon so I only collected things that I will use before I move. I was also super busy on my birthday helping my mom move so all items except for Starbucks did not have to be collected on my actual birthday.  The first item was $1 cashback on Checkout51 for buying sweets. My rules are your birthday you bring the cake. My boss made me a great vegan cake that was free for me. I also got a vegan tiramisu which I got the cash back on. Checkout51 is a a great app to upload your receipts and get cashback.  Jugo Juice will give you a free birthday drink if you sign up for their digital rewards program. You also get a free drink when you register but you only have three days to get it so plan when you register. It is a great program. It is an easy registration process and you get free things as soon as you register. The body shop gives a $1
