A Weekend of Work, Fun, and Food

A good weekend of work, fun, and food.

The first lunch on Saturday was in a tiny hole-in-the-wall place near the Executive Plaza Hotel on North Road. Tiny place that I didn’t catch the name of. Very nicely cut sashimi.

Finally, I’ve got the outdoor grill up and running again! The kids wanted smokies so I went to our local grocery store and bought some Presidents Choice.

I have to admit, I was very unimpressed. The “skins” were far too thick and were really tough to bite through. Not impressed.

Back to meetings so … food required! Back to the Blacksmith Bakery in Fort Langley for a Reuben sandwich. Sublime. Reuben and a lovely side salad.

And then home again and to the grill. My favourite cut of pork is the lowly pork steak. So I grilled one up and sliced it up for the kids and I for a perfect late dinner.

Of course my motto is, dessert before dinner, so we had a couple of scoops of ice cream from the patio at Coquitlam’s Pasta Polo.

We stopped at Pasta Polo for a cool drink after hiking in Belcarra up towards Jug Island.

Cheers for a great weekend of work, fun, and food.
