Victoria Day, yay!

Today is the day when we in Canadia celebrate the life of a long dead Queen from the Motherland, AKA Britannia. It is a day off work and a long weekend for wet camping, ill-advised drinking, and fireworks. That's what I love about the Canucks... any excuse for a party. So today, I'm celebrating with a Victoria Day cartoon from "Hark, A Vagrant" by one of my favourite comix artists who is also a fellow Canadian, Kate Beaton.

Queen Victoria got one thing right, anyway, and that was to arrange for her birthday to always fall on Meatless Monday. So convenient! Here's another few items worth celebrating:
This week's recipe has lots of veg and keeps it simple and delicious. Have a good Monday, even if there are no fireworks in the forecast where you are.
