how was your weekend?

I'm smack dab in the middle of a holiday weekend. Despite the heat squatting over the city, I've been DOING STUFF. Check it.

We went to Crackle Creme Cafe. Yup, a place mostly devoted to many varieties of creme brulee. Here we have earl grey, salted caramel and yuzu.

And after, when Stella helped with "the CRATCH." It helps too if your friends have just eaten a large meal and can barely eat any brulee because you can then go to town with abandon.

Then we got physical in the 5K Color Me Rad race out at UBC.

But mostly I went so that I could accrue a new Facebook profile picture.

nerdFinally, bouncing off an idea a co-worker had given me, I made a dairy free AMAZING "coolada" (my name, deal with it) for our visiting nephews.

refreshing as ALL YESRECIPE

Dump a chilled can of coconut milk into blender with 1.5 cups of frozen pineapple.

Blend well and serve.

It's just a little sweet, super creamy and super refreshing.

For the adult version, add a few splashes of good tequila.

Enjoy!
