February 2020 - Toronto ON
Sunday we took the subway to Yorkville to see the Ice Fest, click here to see the ice sculptures.
It was almost impossible to get photos without people posing. Why do people HAVE to stand beside every sculpture to get their photos taken???
Maple syrup taffy on snow!
Actually saw a woman wearing a real mink full length coat!!!!
The rest of the week was mundane, John had lunch with a friend, I met a friend for coffee, Costco and a haircut.
Random shots from this week.
Union Station TV in the food court.
To put the size in perspective.
Another sweet pop up in Union.
Teachers' strike outside the Royal York.
TTC had another bad day as I waited and waited..Another derailment.
People are making spoof ads of the new fare evasion ads that are popping up everywhere.
Good gluten free pasta selection at Eataly.
Friday, Valentine's Day with bone chilling temperatures, but at least the sun was out. Feels like -25C is -13F or 13 below 0!
Plenty of flowers for sale everywhere!
Waiting area at Pickle Barrel restaurant.
Walking through Union Station in the VIA section was weirdly quiet. All trains across the country are cancelled until further notice. Why?
Click here to read about the Indigenous protests.
And then to add insult to injury UP service from Union to the airport was suspended this morning for six hours due to signal issues.
And I came home to this!
And it's a long weekend here - Monday is Family Day.
MENUAsian ground pork lettuce wraps
Lamb chops roast potatoes and baby carrots
Chips and eggs
John had a late lunch so I had the leftovers - corned beef, mashed potatoes and mushy peas.
Carbonara with chicken - first time using chicken instead of pancetta. Will go back to using pancetta, the chicken was too bland. New gluten free spaghetti from Eataly was really good.
Steak baked potato oven roasted broccoli.
I finished Our House, and it is my favourite book of this year, so far. I loved it to the point of plotting how I could pull this off...just kidding.
I also finished Autopsy of a Boring Wife, a quick fun read from a Canadian writer.
