We decided to prepare a grilled cheese sandwich lunch over the fire outside and all things considered, the sandwiches turned out pretty good, even if the cheese didn’t get as ooey and gooey as we would’ve liked.
Let me tell you an amusing little story to illustrate a point about a thing I’m calling the Knowledge Gap. Most mornings I leave for work quite early while my wife gets our kids ready for school. She makes them breakfast and packs a lunch for them to take to school. It’s typically a healthy […]
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 […]
I’ve had a Vitamix “whole food processor” for about 20 years now and while I don’t use it all that often anymore, when I do use it, the results are usually pretty much 100% tasty. This weekend just gone, I was watching Let it Mix on Instagram make apple juice on with her Vitamix and […]

The best thing to do on a cold and and rainy afternoon after you have just discovered that the last four hours of work you have done on a computer has not saved – go for a bowl of soup. Yesterday I was writing report cards – every teacher’s favourite way to while away the […]

Lunch was good. The food, as usual, was tasty and nicely prepared. […]
Our third and final day in Texas was spent in Austin and Houston, Texas. Our stops included a cruise along the Colorado River where we go to experience the emergence of literally millions of bats, lunch at June’s Restaurant up in SoCo, and a tour of the Houston Space Center. This was a great way […]
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 […]
One of my grandfather’s more “edgy” sayings was, “if that’s lunch, I’ve had it!” When I was a kid, I’d chuckle at his double entendre. Now I use it! Thanks to the great staff at Port Moody’s Taps and Tacos for a late lunch.
