Poutine Dogs

Print Friendly

Are you even seeing this? I’ve eaten 76 of them and I’m still in disbelief that they exist. I’d like to shake the hand of the genius who invented this whole poutine thing. And then I’d probably be tempted to do that little thing where you wiggle one finger inside the person’s hand you’re shaking. […]

Lemon Butter Sole and Apple Cinnamon Empanadas

Print Friendly

Dudes. Hark. Are you seeing that light coating of drizzleness sliding down those lemon slices? I don’t want to give anything away, but it’s butter. Pure unadulterated butter.

AMERICUUUUH. This round-up is actually extremely tiny and hilarious. And you mostly likely have your menu planned for today like a well-behaved, organized American citizen, but just in case you needed two more side options, four main entrée alternatives like burgers and fish, one drink option and seriously only one dessert option, Y’ALL I AM […]

Print Friendly

It started off so innocently. It was a muggy Saturday evening and we’d spent all afternoon spreading one hundred thousand bags of black mulch all over the garden beds. Covered in wood chips, we wearily stumbled into the house to collapse on the sofa, pour 35 glasses of wine and fist bump over the success […]
