What a coincidence!
Both my parents’ birthdays are in August and I went to see them yesterday and cooked risotto with them, plus I shared my leftover wedding salad with them:
When I started a vegan lifestyle, my Dad was very impressed and tried following me. He is a ultra-runner and cares a great deal about health and weight. He did not stick to it. He might be called a flexitarian now. My mom did make some vegan cakes once but failed and has given up, poor one. I always try to cook yummy dishes for us all when we meet. 🙂
