I meant to blog this ON THE DAY (Vegan pizza day- 29th June) but with laptop issues and getting-photos-off-my-phone issues it has been somewhat delayed…
All week I’d been really craving a sweet treat so my lovely husband took me out to get some from Vx.

We picked up field roast sausages, vegourmet herbario cheese (still my favourite), freedom mallows and lots of biscuits! I also got a slice of cat and the cream blueberry and vanilla cake!
Next we headed to Borough market and R got some coffee beans from Monmouth and we had a couple of espresso samples. We would have bought some take away coffees too but they didn’t do non-dairy milk!
It was 11:30 so time for brunch and we found our way to The Veggie Table

We picked up some of their vegan burgers in seeded buns. We headed down to the river to eat them.
They were lovely. Although you can stick anything vegan in a bun with relishes for me, call it a burger and I’ll love it! It seemed to be mainly quinoa with a few vegetables, quite a soft texture but lots of flavour. The salad in the bun was a nice touch and I had red onion marmalade too! I really enjoyed this burger.
Then I had my slice of cake from earlier for pudding.
It was as excellent as I have come to expect from the wonderful cat and the cream. Moist sponge and lovely icing.
We went to the whiskey exchange and picked up some spirits and bitters to make cocktails from later!
Once home I opened a few of my treats from Vx:
This delinut dip was amazing! Little breadsticks with a neverending pot of nutty chocolate dip. I finished it with my finger.
Later that day, as it was Vegan Pizza Day, R took me to Surbiton to the Village pizza branch there to get a vegan pepperoni pizza.

It was my first visit to a village pizza and I really enjoyed it. It was properly greasy, like takeaway pizzas always used to be. The ‘cheese’ was nicely melted and it had a good taste. The pepperoni was a little bit spicy for me so I might go for mushrooms next time, or fake chicken which is an option!
We then used our awesome kitchen aid blender to crush ice and make ourselves some cocktails to go with the pizza.
What a lovely day!
