    The Trading Post Eatery Abbotsford

    On Saturday night my buddy and I were headed out to Abbotsford to see the Doobie Brothers in concert and we needed a pre-concert meal. We hit up the Trading Post Eatery in Abbotsford for some dinner. I have to admit that the Trading Post Eatery was not our first choice for our eats. However,…

  • Comfort Food at Ramen Bella

    Comfort Food at Ramen Bella

    Last week on a cold and rainy night, one of my kids said, “Let’s go to Ramen Bella for some ramen. Ramen makes everything better!” Who am I to argue with such pure and beautiful logic? So we headed down past Coquitlam Centre mall, over to Westwood and into Ramen Bella for some simple and…

  • Storytelling with YouTube Shorts

    Storytelling with YouTube Shorts

    I’ve been learning a new format of storytelling – YouTube Shorts. It seems to me that this is YouTube’s move to take market share back from that other app the kids are calling TikTok. With YouTube Shorts people can create “stories” up to a minute long and then they post/share them on YouTube Shorts. Although…

  • PNE Food at the Fair

    PNE Food at the Fair

    As we do every year, the kids and I went to the PNE. And of course my primary purpose is to eat all the PNE food! The first food item we tried at the PNE was the “blooming onion”. We ordered it with “the works”. A deep fried onion loaded with melted cheese, bacon bits,…

  • Breakfast at Wendy’s; Follow Up

    Breakfast at Wendy’s; Follow Up

    I recently posted about the new Wendy’s breakfast menu and the pictures I shared were total garbage – probably a result of me touching the camera lens with a greasy finger! So of course, in the name of journalist integrity, I had to try more of the Wendy’s breakfast menu. You know, just to get…

  • Wendy’s Baconator; The New Breakfast Menu

    Wendy’s Baconator; The New Breakfast Menu

    Recently Wendy’s rolled out a new breakfast menu. So naturally, I had to try a couple of their items. Seeing as I am a big time fan of the Wendy’s Baconator burger, I decided to try the new Baconator Breakfast sandwich. The Breakfast Baconator is very heavy on the bacon. And unlike some other fast…

    Venison Vs Farmed Salmon

    Funny thing happened to me this weekend. A thing that made me go hmmmm… Let me back up a bit. Last fall a friend of mine who lives near the Kootenays – actually his home is in what is known as Boundary Country – the area between the Okanagon and the Kootenays gave me three…
