Day 75: Visiting Grandma

     This weekend I was lucky enough to be able to go down to San Diego to visit my grandparents. I knew this would be an interesting trip for my grandparents are excellent cooks, who take pride in making me their well renown dishes, and now that I am on a vegan diet I wasn't sure how they would take it. While my grandma was seemingly supportive of my new diet on the phone, informing of all the new things she learned after reading my blog, I was still wary of how she would react to the change when she was faced with the challenge of feeding me a vegan dinner.

      After reading my blog my grandma decided to use my vegan pesto recipe from day 51 along with my grandpa's famous bean salad. Every one else had the regular pesto with meatballs, but I was touched that my grandma went out of her way to make me my own pesto sauce and even went as far as to find me some vegan parmesan cheese.

      And to top it all off, my grandma even picked up some vegan vanilla soy ice cream at Trader Joe's. I must say they make a mean vegan meal.


  1. Did Oscar have the vegan pesto? Or did he have the regular pesto with meatballs like everyone else?

  2. He had the regular pesto with meatballs for my grandpa really wanted him to try his famous meatballs, but on most occasions he just eats what I have.
