|Magical, Heart-felt, mostly-handmade gifts from my children|
I had a wonderful Mother's Day, hope you did as well. My family members traveled various distances to meet at the Ormond Beach house to celebrate, can't remember the last time all of us were under one roof! Even Dad managed to break away from his job and join us. For the first time ever, I requested a 100% vegan menu. Though my family is in various stages of veganism, I am rather lenient about other people bringing their own meat dishes, but the more I embrace my own compassionate lifestyle, the less comfortable I am with animal products being in my home. I figured Mother's Day was the perfect day to take a (gentle) stand.
We began the day with a trip to the flea market farmer's market, grabbed a whole bunch of veggies for next to nothing (love the $1 bags of "slightly bruised" goodies!).

Our meal consisted of various veggie burgers & sausages, tossed salad, bean salad, corn, vegetable skewers, baked potatoes, corn on the cob and grilled pineapple.
