Five on Saturday - September 2, 2023 ~ 8th Anniversary, August Month of Vegetarian and Pescatarian Meals, JVN - Great Outdoors Comedy Show, Downhill Karting, and Community Good Food Box

Happy Saturday everyone! I hope you all had a great week and enjoyed the last week of Summer Break! 


I purchased everything in this post

My hubby and I celebrated 8 years married this past week! We don't typically do much but he did get me some wine and flowers and we went out for dinner to our favourite Indian restaurant, Karma and it was delicious! 


It's been a year and a half since I went vegetarian and I've been enjoying sharing my veggie meals. I hope that you guys have been enjoying seeing all the recipes and veggie meal ideas! I'm not preachy about going vegetarian, but I do think everyone should reduce their meat consumption, so even if one day a week you want to do meatless Monday, hoping you will find some good suggestions! Also, I'm also going to include some of my eating out meals instead of just cooked for a little more inspiration if you are looking to eat vegetarian while out! 
(Also, this month there are a few pescatarian meals in here as I eat fish and seafood once in a while!)

Last Weekend in Calgary there was the Great Outdoor Comedy Festival and JVN came and did a show with Monet X Change and Priyanka! Honestly, it was hilarious and such a fun night! Went with a work friend and they had drinks, food trucks and even a cannabis area! 


We had a busy weekend last weekend, we also went Downhill Karting at Canada Olympic Park and it was so much fun! You go up the chair lift and then get a little lesson from the instructors on what to do and then go down the track! It's fun - you go winding down, around obstacles and it was a blast! 


There is a Community Good Food Program in Calgary that offers a fresh produce box once per month - this is the large box and costs $40 for all of this food! It was with apples, oranges, celery, carrots, lettuce, onions, corn, mushrooms, bananas, cucumber, grapes, potatoes, peaches, tomatoes, beets and a sweet potato and grapefruit. I was really impressed with the quality and amount - with the price of groceries, I'm going to keep this up. You don't know what you are getting as it's seasonal items! 

I hope you all have a great weekend!
