Latkes (potato pancakes) are yummy.  I first had them at Marche downtown with sour cream and sausage.  My recipe is made just a little lighter with the addition of cauliflower. I used the grater blade on my cuisinart and threw the potatoes, onions and cauliflower in (but you can finely chop/mince the cauliflower if you don’t have one). The recipe makes about 10-12 latkes- I just do a heaping spoonful of the mixture for each patty. Be sure to use Russett potatoes- they are less moist. Using a non stick pan makes things go more smoothly, and about 2-3 minutes on med-hi heat per side should do it!

1-tumblr 2015 short term2

Last year I went to Chasing The Cheese in PTBO and made some yummy grilled cheese with them picking the cheese and I made them and sampled each one to later reveal what type of cheese they gave me.  This year… I did it again and went back to the cheese shop.  This time… I thought I would shoot a little video about the little outing.

Cider | Somersby | Yummy Goodness

Somersby is a yummy thing introduced to me this summer.  I had some at a Pub and was hooked this past summer.

The other day I was downtown and picked up a couple cans and sat outside on a mild day and watched the world go by.  I’ve tried a couple other kinds and so far…  and I just keep coming back to Somersby.  I like the sweet taste.

My goodness… it’s so easy to drink it up since it’s like drinking juice.

I’ve had many cans from the LCBO and I enjoy drinking it out and about.

Happy Thanksgiving | Who Is Coming To My Place Next Year?

No idea where I will be next year… but if I can’t have Turkey… I will head to Marche downtown for Turkey Dinner and the whole world is invited.  This video made me understand how Casey’s head spins.  Love this video and it’s cool to see Owen and how little he was and it’s nice to see Candace in it as well.

Happy Thanksgiving Weekend to everyone!  I used to love cooking Turkey and all the trimmings and decorating the house.  I’m excited in my new life away from Karen and just wished I could be closer to the kids.  I’m excited for this weekend since I get to see them.  In Thanksgiving’s in the past… I have been screwed a bit by her.  So I’m wondering what is in store for this weekend.

Let’s get back on the positive side.  Happy Thanksgiving and I hope everyone can spend it with the people that are close to them!

You must watch the video from Casey to help with the kitchen prep so you can work out your chart for victory!
