Since my mom’s arrival on Tuesday I have been just zipping around, basking in mumma-land. As is often the case when we live on the other side of the world from our family, well, I don’t get to see my fam very much. At all. So when we have visitors from North America, it’s a really, really big deal.
It’s especially the Guppy who is on cloud nine having her Pamma here to cuddle and play with.
Pamma is omni, but she is more than willing to be a gracious guest and has been loving our vegan cuisinefests. I want to say up front that while my folks and I have extremely different opinions on many things (let’s just say I live on the left, they live on the right), but they have always been very supportive of my decision to live cruelty-free, and have been since I announced my vegetarianism when I was 16 years-old. Encouragement coming from self-described squares (ok, maybe a little), well, I would just like to say “you guys rock, mumma & dad” (I wish my dad could be here, but this is a Pamma-only visit).
I have so many yummy things to post on, but for now I’ll leave you with the Jelly Doughnut Cupcakes from Vcon, which I made to welcome Pamma, and which were, of course, delish!

Thanks Julz! Oh my dog! I think it’s hilarious that you crave lemon- so do I!! I think we were conditioned by jelly-filled donuts as kids!
These look just LOVELY ❤ For some reason whenever I think of Jelly-Filled anything, I crave lemons! Is that weird? haha
I love these pictures and the blog, of course! I hope you have a wonderful saturday Shellyfish! 😉
Looks like the perfect way to welcome your mom!! Isn’t it awesome when your parents are supportive even if they may not agree? I went vegetarian in high school as well and my parents weren’t sure what to do with me.. but they tried as hard as they could…. now they eat mostly vegetarian/vegan!!
geze, thanks Dr. S! 🙂
that’s very sweet of you! your cupcakes look wonderful 🙂
