Hi Friends!  How was your weekend?  Mine has been awesome!  I had a wonderful time with Scott and Skylar at San Diego’s Gay Pride Parade on Saturday.

Moving On to some Gay Pride Parade Pictures!

These two ladies happily said I could take their picture.  Yay for pasties, suspenders, and tube socks!

Skylar loved the Action!

A man with a white face, a dress, hairy legs, and a veil, with a super deep baritone voice.  Interesting.

Now I know why my gym has been so crowded.  All these Float Guys needed to get in tip-top shape.

This was the couple standing next to us.  I love their pink parasol.

 They’re actually making out behind me if you look closely, you can kind of see what’s going down.  Skylar didn’t even notice.  Nor did anyone.  I love the celebration of diversity at the Parade!

Bourbon Street.  A gay bar that I used to go in when I used to go out barhopping before Skylar.  They make the stiffest drinks.  Love it.

Dessert:  Foodbuzz, Electrolux and Kelly Ripa are raising money for the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund (OCRF).  In honor of the Food Buzz and Banana Split Challenge, for every banana split posted, Foodbuzz will donate $50 to the cause.  I’ve seen Heather, Jessica, Anna and many others already help out.  I thought I’d remind you about my version of a “Banana Split”.

Vegan Bananas Foster

I like to save the extras in a container and let the bananas sit in their brown sugar and rum bath for a few days.

Or you could eat most of it at once, and catch a banana buzz.

If Bananas Foster isn’t your thing, how about a Vegan Chocolate Chocolate-Chip Coffee Softserve Sundaes?
