What's for preschool snack: Friday + Happy BND!!

Second time this week we've baked "Anything Goes" Fruit-Filled Muffins from 'How it all Vegan!', pg 49. These are so easy and fast to assemble, and the result is a dense, delicious, fruity, nutritious snack. The "anythings" we added today were 2 bananas, 1 tablespoon organic raspberry jam and 1 cup of frozen blueberries. Plus, we sprinkled brown sugar on the tops for a crispy sweet finish.

This afternoon, in lieu of shopping (see below*) the kids and I have planned to bake two batches of 'Mucho Margarita Cupcakes' from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over The World - 75 Dairy Free Recipes For Cupcakes That Rule, pg 133, [one Tequila laced batch for mom and dad, one virgin batch for the kids].

*Two Kensington Market retailers in Toronto: "Left Feet" and "Heart on Your Sleeve" are closing their doors in observation of "Buy Nothing Day" - BND. They are promoting a "Sell Nothing Day!" as a stance against rampant consumerism. They believe in ethical retail, and believe that businesses have a role to play in reducing our global environmental impact.
