I strongarmed Julien into taking me to the Star Trek Experience at the Canada Aviation and Space Museum near Ottawa. We had such a lovely time!
- Ottawa is dope. We had some beautiful weather, the skies were blue blue blue, and it was sunny and wonderful.
- The Canada Aviation and Space Museum is super duper cool! The featured image is part of a plane, and taller than me! I can remember going there as a kid, but as a grownup who understands a fraction of the stuff we saw, it’s even cooler.
- GLUTEN FREE CRONUTS.
We tried to visit the National Gallery, but unfortunately the main collection is closed until May. So, we’ll have to go back!
LOOK AT THIS. It’s a CRONUT. It was so delicious, and soft, and full of sugar. Full of sugar.
My first bite of a cronut, ever: Is is donutty? Yes. Is it croissanty? Well, it’s gluten-free croissanty. And it is spectacular. But look, you cannot get those layers of soft pliable glutenny buttery goodness without gluten, I think. I’ve yet to have a GF croissant that is what I’m looking for. BUT!! This place also had palmiers, and THOSE, I would be hard pressed to know that was gluten-free. If you’re Gluten-Free and in Ottawa, or near Ottawa, you simply must go: http://www.olivechili.com/about-us/
i do feel a silly jingoistic pride when we go to Ottawa. Like, that’s MY country! Maybe we’ll see Trudeau! (We didn’t.)
