King St. West Toronto
Saturday was a gorgeous day for our drive to Montreal for the weekend.
It was a different story on Monday as we drove home in the rain that washed all our snow away.
This was taken as we left the hotel.
And our view when we got home. A good night for a stew.
Tuesday was spent doing chores and baking a lemon blueberry loaf. But as I was watching The Kitchen at the same time and they made an icing, I copied it. I swapped out the butter in the icing for maple syrup and instead of lemon juice I used Limoncello!
Wings and fries for dinner.
Wednesday as I went to get my hair cut, display in Brookfield Place.
Clam chowder and gluten free homemade biscuits, these never fail.
I took this on Thursday as I waited for my cousin to have lunch with. We both had dynamite poke bowls at Mercatino.
The Dynamite bowl isn’t so much a poke bowl as a kind of sushi-poke mashup, a hefty base of warm white rice topped with a giant scoop of imitation crab, neon red tobiko, avocado, lettuce, carrot, cucumber, shrimp tempura and spicy mayo.
Thursday dinner was haddock, mustard sauce, cauliflower rice and roasted mushrooms and tomatoes.
Friday was a gorgeous sunny day. This is the Union Station skating rink.
They offer free skate rentals and free lessons. It was quiet but it got busy at lunch hour.
We went to St. Lawrence Market as I wanted to make a prime rib on the weekend.
$12 for vegetables and we got potatoes, Brussels sprouts, sweet potato, spinach, beets, carrots and turnip.
All kinds of frozen shellfish, including cooked mussels.
Various types of chicken to roast.
This counter carries all kinds of interesting meats like emu, yak, camel, ostrich...
And more cheeses!
We need some snow, just a dusting, for better photos!
Back at Union Station, this is the warming lounge.
For a change, lamb chops, roast potatoes and broccolini along with beets that I roasted in the afternoon.
Not a great reading week, can't seem to find something I really like.
I finished Another Brooklyn, and was a little underwhelmed and disappointed.
Our Secrets and Lies annoyed me, the main character needed a good swift kick, a typical helicopter mother, the story line did nothing for me. Too chick lit.
Started The Confession Club, too sweet for me.
The Suspect does have my interest!
