Year of Firsts: Meatless Post Clean

So it seems this every couple of days thing is becoming more common. I was too tired last night to catch y’all up on my Firsts.

I wasn’t sure what my First was going to be on Saturday, I hadn’t set anything up ahead of time, so I thought I’d try to wash my makeup brushes with a conditioning mask. I also received this brush cleaner and it was my first time using that.

Look at how much gunk gets stuck in my brushes. It makes me sad to think I put that nastiness on my face. I suppose I should wash my brushes more often. I wanted to see if conditioning them would make them feel nicer because I usually use a soap or shampoo to clean my brushes. Conditioning was a good thing.

 

Then I lit a Skittles candle for the first time. I wanted the smell to be a lot stronger than it was. But it was a nice subtle scent of strawberries. Soothing… I’m all about the soothing vibes.

Later that day, I accompanied my mom on a drive and she mentioned that she wanted to stop at the post office. I had never been to that post office before. It was a First. It was big. I like big post offices. They’re so roomy and exciting. Mail is exciting. It’s so full of possibilities.

While paying for the letter to be sent, the post woman told me to click on the screen to agree that I didn’t include any type of explosives or whatever. But I couldn’t see the screen because of the glare, so I had to get on my tiptoes just to see it. The post woman giggled and said she wasn’t going to laugh at me because there are a lot of older people who come in and can’t see the screen because they’re shorter. And I said, “Yeah, but that’s what makes them so cute.” She laughed. Admit it, short old people are the cutest.

 

Saturday was a busy day of Firsts, I closed out the day by a Carvel stop. Although it was not my first time at a Carvel or my first time ordering a vanilla soft-serve with chocolate sprinkles, it was nice because this was my go-to order as a kid and I haven’t had it in ages. It makes me happy. It’s the simple things.

 

On to Sunday’s First. I had read a lot about these Beyond Burgers and have been quite curious. I heard they taste like meat and are the meatiest tasting plant-based burgers around. I wanted to know how true that was and have looked for them for a while, but can’t seem to find them anywhere.  Anyways, I found them! Beware, even though they are plant-based, there is beef juice extract in it. Apparently, it’s used for the colouring. I could have done without the colouring though.

The directions say to cook them for three minutes on each side and that the insides will remain red. They won’t get brown like that of a beef burger. So I knew they would be red, but I was surprised at how red it was. It looked like a raw beef burger.

The texture was insanely similar to that of a beef burger. Not exactly the same, but a heck of a lot closer than that of other veggie burgers. It was very bizarre in a good way. The taste was smokey, like that of burger, but you can still tell it’s a veggie based burger. The top ingredient was Pea isolate, so I am curious about how they made it taste meaty.

It was an interesting and tasty experience. I don’t know if I’d ever crave this burger specifically, but I certainly wouldn’t turn it down if someone offered me one.

Until tomorrow…

Peace and Pistachios,

Heba
