finally!


so happy somebody finally invented this! hated it when i would go for a tablespoon of tomato paste and the rest of the can would go bad in my fridge. a special lady put this tube in my stocking one year... best stocking stuffer EVER!

soup, not so much. oh ya i just remembered the mashed potatoes sucked too… pretty sure they were out of a box. reminds me of a retirement home I used to work at.

meat


if you want a good steak and don’t care to pay for the atmosphere this is the place. a few people have told me about tulip on queen east and we finally made the trip. haha it’s so funny when you live west of young how the east end can seem so far! anyway, you know it’s good value when you see all the white hairs there. be ready to stand in a cue for at least 30 minutes.

i want it right now!


i always get this at cantine and wash it down with a mimosa… don’t you love how brunch is a good excuse to drink mid-day? love a good greasy spoon but this is a nice treat when you’re meeting one of your girlfriends and want to chat for a few hours over brunch and drinks. who’s in next weekend?

summer eats


yay spring!! bbq's, drinks on patios, pinics...sigh. i'm thinking that's why i had a craving for potato salad. this is a version I made recently. I usually go with mom's and that's with lots of mayo, s&p, onion and egg... always a winner (especially with magda's dad), but i thought i would try something different. this one is with red potatoes (fingerling would be good too), green beans, hard boiled egg, shallots, red wine vinegar, dijon mustard, s&p and a touch of mayo. this is just before i mixed it all up and it didn't look as pretty.
