Happy Canada Day!

I’m enjoying a relaxing Monday at home since today, July 1, marks Canada’s 146 birthday. There are tons of celebrations throughout the country, firework shows, and delicious BBQs.


Instead of heading out to the mountains (they are calling our names!) we stayed around the city and enjoyed a quiet weekend at home catching up on things we’ve neglected this summer including people, sleep, and house work!

The weather has been fabulous, which makes a long weekend that much better.

In spirit of the holiday, we’ll enjoy a fresh vegan feast tonight.

On the menu…

How are you celebrating Canada Day or the Fourth of July?

I know there is a Canada Day Road Race here, but I won’t be participating since I’m trying to be smart about Ironman recovery!

A simple search shows 506 Fourth of July races across the USA! Are you racing on Thursday? And are you dressing up?

  1. Happy Canada day to you! I’m just waiting for my long weekend for the 4th of July. Glad you got to enjoy the nice weather. We are also neglecting the call of the lake/woods/outdoors to spend time with family this year.

  2. Your Canada Day feast sounds amazing! I love zucchini, so I’ll have to try out those baked fries. YUM! We are heading to Atlanta on Wednesday to enjoy the Fourth of July with family. We’ll spend lots of time at the pool and eat WAY too much food!

  3. Wow that many races on Thursday? I’m not doing a thing Thursday! Maybe some weights!
    You deserve a month off after CDA!
    I love oh she glows! Do you get most of your recipes there since your husband is vegan? I am trying to be better about prepping food on the weekend so we don’t eat the same thing during the week. I will have to try the zucchini fries and black bean burgers!

    • The black bean burgers are my favourite! For most suppers, we just make whatever. But for baked good I usually find amazing recipes on Daily Garnish, Oh She Glows, or Peas and Thank You.
      I can’t wait for the Oh She Glows cookbook to come out.

      • I followed her until I started my own blog and now just hVe too many faves to keep up with! My stuff never turns out moist with her though.
