January 2020 - Toronto ON
What the heck?? 11 C on January 11? With rain non-stop causing flooding in some areas.
We had some dodgy apples so I made an apple crisp from my Betty Crocker cookbook. I also added raisins. It was good but it could have been a bit more buttery.
Roast pork with potatoes, Brussels sprouts and baby carrots.
Sunday was another warm day. We should have checked out the No Pants Subway Ride!
Wings and fries for dinner.
Monday we went downtown for dinner with John's son, who was here on business.
The lights looked great.
This is the second and last time that we will go to Craft. We weren't impressed the first time and less impressed this time.
Basically it is overpriced and underwhelming.
Tuesday and we headed downtown and then walked to the St. Lawrence Market.
First stop was the Market Gallery on the second floor of the South St. Lawrence Market, which encloses all that remains of Toronto’s original 19th-century Front Street City Hall council chamber, operating from 1845-1899. The historic site presents a variety of changing exhibits related to the art, culture and history of Toronto.
A new exhibit had opened.
The gallery’s signature fan windows, which once overlooked Toronto’s harbour, today overlook the main floor of the market featuring various food vendors.
The market was so quiet, it was a pleasure to shop!
We bought some Irish salmon for the first time.
I made meat sauce for spaghetti tomorrow.
Salmon (roasted in the oven) with mustard sauce, broccolini and boiled potatoes.
The Irish salmon was mild and delicious.
Wednesday and I went for a hair cut and picked up some items at the $ store.
John and I sat and watched TV, something I don't ever do in the afternoon.
We finished The Spy and really enjoyed the series.
And then another short series Killer Inside: The Mind of Aaron Hernandez which was very tragic and informative.
Sunset was magnificent.
Dinner - spaghetti and garlic bread.
Thursday and I met a friend for a nice long coffee break.
And we had salad with the leftover salmon for dinner.
Friday and the week is ending with a January freeze. It was -12 C when I headed out shopping and John went to Costco.
Through the Bay and then into the Eaton Centre.
Poking in the bookstore.
Steak broccolini and baked potato for dinner.
AND this is the dire weekend weather. We're stocked up and ready!

As I had really enjoyed War Of the Wives last week I decided to read another by the same author, The Fallout which I really enjoyed.
I started In the Dark, so far so good!
