lobster leftovers…no really

Lobster leftovers.  Akin to bacon leftovers.  Or cheesecake. As mentioned before (here and here), we like to cook more than we need for a meal.  That’s the only way we have leftovers for rolls or sandwiches, and chowder. I believe I may need to try one of those delicious pasta recipes, as well. On the menu…… Continue reading lobster leftovers…no really

soup’s on ~ chowdah

Since we began traveling to the east coast, we have been on a quest for the best cup of seafood chowder.  There have been many tasty samples along the way, but I think our favourite, as yet, has been the offering from the Water-Prince Corner Shop in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island.  I believe we first heard…… Continue reading soup’s on ~ chowdah

gotta see a man about a lobster

It’s spring lobster season here on the east coast.  My Love’s favourite time of year.  He’s heading down to the harbour to buy a few beauties right off the fishing boat.  We’ll enjoy a lobster dinner tonight with some friends, and probably lobster rolls, or sandwiches tomorrow to share, as well. Lobster has a way…… Continue reading gotta see a man about a lobster

Am I the only one who thinks of this jingle from back in the day? https://youtu.be/tzY7qQFij_M Let’s take a stroll down memory lane, shall we? Christmas time.  Television ads capturing the hearts of children and the wallets of their parents. Remember Slinky, the wonderful toy song? “Batteries not included” caveats? The game of Trouble with the fancy pop-o-matic…… Continue reading cha-cha-cha-chia

mexican night

Do you recall (the value of friendship post) that my friend taught me the inside scoop on making authentic tacos?  Well, I finally got around to making them.  I followed the directions she gave me as best as I could remember, but the tortillas were not as soft as hers, nor as perfectly round.  I guess I…… Continue reading mexican night

win! almond milk yogurt success…finally

If you’ve read my past posts, you’ll know that I’m 0 for 2 in my almond milk yogurt making game (see this post).  My dairy-free girl was over the moon to find a reasonably priced yogurt maker on Amazon (this one, in case you were wondering), so she could once again enjoy one of her…… Continue reading win! almond milk yogurt success…finally

sleepless nights…

Some nights are like that… You fall sound asleep on the couch by 9:00, flaking out on the better part of family movie night.  (I did manage to make the popcorn; but, I can’t honestly say I’m devastated to have missed out on Lemony Snicket.) When it’s time to actually go to bed, sweet slumber completely eludes you. Tonight, however, it’s…… Continue reading sleepless nights…
