Here are some of the things I wanted to show you, and never did…
Michael Symon says never to pair fish with cheese. This amazing smoked salmon breakfast with goat cheese and GF toast from my beloved Machiavelli proved him wrong. Super delicious.
Veg from this year’s CSA basket, the McGill’s Farmer’s Market: http://mcgillfarmersmarket.blogspot.ca/
Super pleased with everything about them – great veg, great size, great price, great folk!
Cats have two catbeds and a perch atop the tree. What’s best? Clean laundry.
Giant salad from Green. Sometimes I forget my lunch, and then I have to buy food. I was really pleased to find Green, right up the street. Every one of their salads is delightfully tasty – and gigantic. No banana for scale, just my normal 8 oz coffee mug.
The windows at Charlevoix metro. Mina had taken a (better) photo when she was in town, and this was my version. It was my phone background for a bit. I switched it to a picture I took at the Chihuly exhibit – which was amazing.
Poutine soda. Just .. don’t. It smelled like bad parmesan (putting parmesan in your poutine would not be correct!) and gym socks, and tasted worse. Luckily, we had Dave Matthewses to wash it down.
A much better drink, the Hulk at Le Bureau
After wedding-dress shopping with Lauren, we tried Taverne Gaspar. The server was a doll about my gluten-intolerance, and apparently they have a GF pasta! I did not have the pasta, but the mussels and fries, which were very good. The oysters were also very good. Drink pictured is the Vanilla Cosmo – delicious!
