Doughnut Love – Welcome to the Neighborhood

Last Friday I had a sneak peek inside Doughnut Love – a new doughnut/coffee shop and the interior of the shop is as beautiful looking as their doughnuts are beautiful tasting. Clint, the doughnut chef (is that actually a baker?) told me that the plan is to have, along with the regular doughnuts they make, […]

Between 2 Buns Food Truck

Up until very recently the best burger I had ever eaten was from a little hole in the wall place called Duane’s Ono-Char Burger on the Hawaiian island of Kauai. That is until I tried a burger from an equally unpretentious place – the Between 2 Buns food truck. And when I say the Between […]

Hiking with the Casus Grill

On Blursday (who is keeping track of what day it is what these days?) last week the kids and I decided to go for a short urban-hike and have a picnic lunch. The kids wanted to have a barbecue on the beach – and I was not prepared to pack my Ugly Drum Smoker along […]

C Market Coffee; Eat Local

In today’s effort to support a local, family owned business my daughter and I visited C Market Coffee for drinks and a couple of sandwiches. My daughter (Blonde Bear) started with the C Market House Made Lemonade. She declared it to be “not overly sweet and as you can see, it is loaded with fresh […]

Building a Growing Potato Planter

With so many people going back to the “Little House on the Prairies” lifestyle and baking bread, I decided to go in another direction and start to grow potatoes for the family. So I built a growing potato planter – in our front yard. I went to my local lumber store and bought the supplies: […]

Restaurants in Crisis

I hate to say it, but the Canadian restaurant industry is in really serious trouble. The current global pandemic is wreaking havoc on the restaurant business – in particular, family operated and independent restaurants. These smaller establishments are at high risk of going out of business during this pandemic – and quite possibly not returning […]

Triple O’s Chicken Sandwich

Before the current global pandemic set in, while I was on the road to the cabin, I had the chance to test out another chicken burger from a local fast food joint – the Buttermilk Chicken Sandwich from Triple O’s. And I’ve got to admit, for a burger (sandwich?) that cost almost $10, the Buttermilk […]

Wendy’s Chicken Sandwich

In my continuing research into chicken sandwiches, I decided to try out the Wendy’s chicken sandwich. It didn’t hurt that a page of coupons recently arrived at my house for Wendy’s burgers, wraps, salads, and sandwiches! The Wendy’s coupons have a “2-can-dine-for $13.99” deal for two spicy, grilled or homestyle chicken sandwich combos. We oped […]

Hi Five Chicken Burger

I had a hankering for a chicken sandwich so I swung by Hi Five Chicken on the Burnaby/New West border just in tine to grab their lunch special; a Home Style Spicy Sandwich with a side of wedge cut fries. Seeing as I knew that I would more than likely have to share my chicken […]
