Nothing like a chilly walk home to make you crave a big bowl of warm things.

I’ve been playing a fun game all week. It’s called torment mom by constantly discussing how you’re going to make this ‘vegan for a week’ thing a ‘vegan for life’ thing.

Let me tell you, she’s terrified at how much I’m loving this.

Ariffa! NO! You can be a vegan, but eat cheese and eggs and FISH!

-Mom

I don’t actually plan on staying vegan (although everything is going great !) but I think I’ll play this out until the end of tomorrow
