Birthday Presents

Two weeks ago was my birthday and it was my first birthday here in Ireland in our new apartment. Boyfriendlovlie and I moved to a new apartment 3 weeks ago and we both love it! It’s much more spacious and bright. Good size kitchen with enough natural light to take good photos! Nice balcony too! I can’t wait to start growing a little veggie garden!

A while ago, I was thinking that I don’t actually own a single vegan cookbook. I actually did get a vegetarian one as a present from a couple of friends but no vegan one. So, for my birthday, Boyfriendlovlie got me one! Yay! I actually saw this book a while ago in the bookstore and was very attracted to some recipes in it. Boyfriendlovlie secretly recorded my fondness for the book and went to buy it. 😀 It’s Now Vegan by Lynda Stoner. I will review or adapt a few recipes in the coming weeks or (more so) months!

I also got a mug; this one I wouldn’t have guessed! No, it’s not just any mug; it has one of my designs printed on it. You will surely recognise it!

And flowers! Lilies, my favourite!


Coming up in the next post Nasudengaku recipe (Eggplant grilled with Special Miso paste) that I adapted from the Now Vegan book.
