Roywoods

After spending the day in the sun at the Niagara Lavender Festival, we were ready for a low-key dinner. We decided going to Roywoods to pick up some jerk chicken for dinner.

Niagara Lavender Festival

The Niagara Lavender Festival took place this past weekend from July 7th to 8th.

We made the trip to Niagara-on-the-Lake on the Sunday, having ordered the World Traveler pass in advance. This included ten tasting-size food and drink items, as well as other goodies. Continue reading Niagara Lavender Festival

Earnest Ice Cream

I love London Fog. Put London Fog in a food item, and I’ll probably try it. A lot of ice cream shops make Earl Grey ice cream, but London Fog ice cream is harder to come by. The difference lies in the creamier vanilla flavour that is not guaranteed in the Earl Grey versions.

Earnest easily makes the best London Fog ice cream (or London Fog flavoured anything) that I have ever had. Earnest, please sell your ice cream to the rest of Canada!

Kitchen Sounds: Iced Matcha Latte

I finally bit and got an external microphone for my camera, and decided to test it. Due to the recent heatwave, I made an iced matcha latte. When I reviewed the footage, I really enjoyed the sounds of the latte-making process, and decided to keep them in instead of overlaying with music.

This is not quite ASMR as I filmed this next to my fridge and there is some hum from the machinery, and the counter I was using was the glass range, so there were some sharp drops. Hope you enjoy it nonetheless!

Stay cool!

The Homeway

We recently participated in the Sporting Life 10K for Camp OOCH. After eating bagels and bananas on the lawn of Coronation Park, we shuffled our way back to the starting line. Seeing as we were rarely in the Mount Pleasant area, we quickly looked up brunch places and decided to try out the Homeway.

Bullock’s Bistro

We met several people in Yellowknife that recommended one place; Bullock’s Bistro. Their speciality is fish, and it’s pretty much the only thing on the menu (we called to ask for vegetarian options for our fellow vegetables – their only option: salad and fries).

We came here on our last night in Yellowknife, and in retrospect, not the greatest idea.
