Thanksgiving, Just Eat!

Thanksgiving, Just Eat!
Right before Thanksgiving weekend, Just-Eat.ca reached out to invite me to test their new Android app. “Why not?” I thought. I like apps, especially food and restaurant apps. Besides, we were planning on working all Thanksgiving weekend. Why not have a little fun playing with someone’s food app as a bit of a break?  “H [...]

Apple Bushel

Apple Bushel
One of the things I love about fall is the smell of apples! I grew up smelling them in the trees, then during high school there would be people selling apples by the bushel in the mal where I worked. When we traveled to Kingston regularly for Thanksgiving, Gerry would agree to stop to let me pick bushels of apples in exchange for Apple Crumbl [...]

Thanksgiving Dinner In The Air
Sadly no big eating for us this Thanksgiving. Our flight home from New Brunswick pulled us from a BIG feast prepared by 2 professional chefs and 2 MORE amazingly good home cooks.Our hosts decided to pack us up plates to-go at the last minute. Little did we know how much they packed in. We goobled to-go plates on the plane. And the only chall [...]

A Little on the Side (s)
I have posed a little pre-Thanksgiving question over on F*book.  (They have this cool "My Questions" app that lets you ask your friends a question on the sidebar of your profile. I know, I know… but I'm a widget & social media junkie.) Thanksgiving Food I realized, as the responses started flooding in, [...]

The First Word on Food

The First Word on Food
Sunday October 22nd, that’s tomorrow, will find me chatting about food with Lisa Moskaluk on CIUT‘s The First Word.

Thanksgiving Weekend All Way

Thanksgiving Weekend All Way
I know, I know, you’re all chomping at the bit to know how our Thanksgiving went. My excuse is that we had a busy weekend with Mom, Andy, CIUT‘s The First Word, and 14 guests for dinner.  Add to that the fact I jumped on a bus and headed to Ottawa before all the dishes were even done, thanks honey!, and well, I was just too lazy t [...]

Giving Thanks.

Giving Thanks.
First of all, Happy Thanksgiving to our US friends, readers, and lurkers. More than any Thanksgiving in the past, I am thankful today.  One year ago today, my father had a heart attack. He was stuck on an isolated island for 3 days before the weather allowed him to get to the hospital.  Less than 6 months later he had a stroke as a result of [...]

Well, it’s been a busy couple of weekends. We had a lovely thanksgiving weekend with mom here in TO. She drove up, so we took advantage of the car and did some site visits outside TTC range. Yesterday, Mom had an International Baccalaureate round table. So we got her 2 weekends in a row and she “got” to join in on even more [...]
