Being Well: The Beginning of the Journey

Hello Everybody!

I’ve started a brand new adventure this year that I feel like I’m ready to share. One of my new year’s resolutions this year is to be healthier. As you age, things change or stop working quite so well… my metabolism is one of those I guess. My doctor’s been concerned with my cholesterol level and thus I’ve been carefully monitoring it. In January, I decided I needed to help myself more and started Meatless Mondays.

Meal Deal: Game of Cheese

Hey Everyone!

Trying to get back into the regular posting business here, so let’s see how long I can hold on before I forget or RL gets the better of me.

The NSSSO and I went to a new restaurant in Commerce Gate in Markham. I’ve driven by it a couple of times before it was open and I had wondered what it would be. Well, obviously they would serve cheese, but to what extent? In what way? Could I also buy cheese there? The questions were numerous and I couldn’t wait for them to be answered.

Meal Deal: Happy Birthday to Me

Hey Everyone!

So if you follow me on Instagram (which you totally should…. link) then you know that I’ve just celebrated my birthday!!

To be fair, the celebrating is still happening as my friends are still booking dinner dates (wink). The amount of food and desserty things that I’ve eaten this year is far larger than I want (recently gained a lot of weight… like a lot), but I’ve decided that birthday food = no calories (excellent adulting). So below the cut is just a brief overview of what I’ve eaten so far.

2017 – what a year so far

Hey Everyone!

I know I know, I’ve been MIA for almost a year now and I’m not proud of it. RL got out of control really quickly after that post. I’ve spent most of 2016 renovating/updating my home and I never realized how much work that was (just painting the entire house took forever).

Now that my kitchen went from this…

 

…to this.

You might be thinking “Oh, so videos will happen again?” well… you are most certainly wrong. We’re looking to move (yay). The NSSSO and I are looking to move (hopefully) soon and we’ve been given strict instructions not to touch anything to ruin the perfection that is staging. So no… no new videos anytime soon (which gives me time to research what I want to make anyway…). But I’ll try my best to post more Meal Deals in the meantime.

This was a pretty short update… soooo I guess that’s all folks! #badblogger

Summerlicious 2016: Hapa Izakaya

Hello Everyone!

So, Summerlicious might be over this year, but it doesn’t mean that the reviews have stopped!

I went with a bunch of friends (including Laugh Live Eat )for our yearly Summerlicious excursion. This year, we tried a Japanese Izakaya, which I’m not generally for. This is usually because if I’m going to eat little bits of appetizers during Summerlicious, I might as well get the full feel of them during a regular meal. But, the menu looked intriguing enough for me to say yes.
