Plastic Potatoes, David Sedaris, Elvis Presley, and "Mimicreme"

Friends, it's late. I spent all day driving (for work) to and from a nursery school in a remote Ontarian town, where one child hit me in the face with a plastic potato and then tried to serve it to me for lunch while I worked:


She perhaps thought the cupcake would make me forget about the maiming, but it didn't.

But then, lucky me, the Man of Science took me out for veggie burgers and then dropped me off at A Large Chain Bookstore I Rarely Shop At to see David Sedaris do a reading from his new book. I do love David Sedaris and I'd never seen him before, so that was fantastic. He made me laugh and laugh, which made all the potato-face-smashing and long hours of driving seem more like a distant memory.

All this to say, I have very little to go on about food-wise this evening. But I will give you a preview of some products I just found that I'd like to review:

Elvis is fun. Elvis is Music.

I haven't seen EITHER of these things in Ottawa before, and I am excited to try them out. Especially the fakey whipped cream. I can't wait to make a bunch of pancakes to use as vehicles for that this weekend. It's cold out, after all, which means it's important to eat fatty things.

Good night, Vegan Mofo-ers!

This is my favorite line of 2010:

I spotted that coconut milk at Market Organics a few days ago! I wanted to try it but I feared it would make a hole in my flimy reusable shopping back as I trekked home across the bridge.

I am looking forward to seeing what you create with that fakey whipped cream!
