The weather has decided that it wants to be cold, with blowing snow and just generally gross lately. It's been sunny on and off, so that's been good at least! Temperatures have been hovering around 0C, which theoretically isn't that cold (it is winter in Canada after all!). Although today it's -7C. So that's chilly. The wind. … Continue reading Thai Curry Butternut Squash Soup
Or why it's taken me so long to drag my butt back to the keyboard and post something... I know it's been a while. I can only imagine what this has done to my ratings on Google... Haha, I think my site must have gone from "barely noticeable" by their search bots to "you're never going to be read by the public again!" Not that any of this matters actually. I'm not sure I ever really had the intention of making this website an internet-breaking, visit for the latest and greatest trends kind of site. Those kinds of sites take a lot of work and dedication, and I would rather focus my creative efforts on other projects. (Let's be honest - I would rather flake off and read a book or go for a long walk).

A cool treat on a hot summer day! It’s been crazy warm here lately! We had a heat wave this past week, mixed with some smoky skies. There are several forest fires currently burning in interior BC. The fires have been ongoing for the past few weeks. There are a lot of residents displaced by … Continue reading Watermelon Salad
I’m a day late in posting! Hopefully Google doesn’t punish me too much for this. Who am I kidding? I’m not even sure what page of the search results anything I’ve written shows up on, but I’m sure it’s NOT page 1. Sorry for the delay. I got distracted yesterday by an assignment for an … Continue reading Greek Potato Salad
It was another busy week… Ok, not really. We were away for a bit on a short trip out to Tofino. Neither of us had spent much time on Vancouver Island (a long weekend in Nanaimo once, and a long weekend in Victoria once as well). And everyone kept saying that we needed to get … Continue reading A Quick Grilled Dinner
