Happy Canada Day, my fellow Canadians!
These weeks pass by so fast! The second half of June was super busy! I guess you can tell since my posts are all over the place. I literally watched two movies in three weeks. I’m not lying that it felt a little empty at times but then real life does take priority here. That is probably why there’s a good bit of stuff to get through this time around! Less rambling and more fun stuff, right?
Let’s see what happened since the last time!
Pointe Claire Marathon
Of course, it goes without saying. Just support, not actual running. This was in the Pointe Claire village area. My friends went for the half marathon and did a decent time. The weather was beautiful and maybe even nearing a little hot by the end of their course. By far, the most relaxing place that any marathon has been set that even I could sit in the park nearby next to some water and catch up on some reading.
After that, they got freshened up and brunch time! 🙂
Suffice to say, that first weekend was crazy busy. I came home on Saturday and had to start preparing for Father’s Day baking. Thing was, I had no idea what to make. The initial idea was to make Chocolate Mousse for my father in law but then I lost track of time and ended up making these cupcakes that kind of failed. They tasted really good apparently since it was Vanilla Cupcakes with Marshmallow and chocolate. The concept was like a S’mores cupcakes but with a marshmallow centre but that didn’t work out. Its why I didn’t post about it. Here’s how they turned out.
Project Ravin’ Rabbits
Talk about an efficient Father’s Day! My friends came over along with their little girl to help me out with the garden reinforcements and also have dinner together. The afternoon before, my husband and I had attempted to put up a quick fix but it turned out to not be too helpful since apparently bunnies can hop pretty high.
First reinforcement which failed
It was hopeful thinking that they wouldn’t put in the extra effort to get delicious organic lettuce/kale/broccoli leaves/okra leaves.
Its been two weeks and I think its working! So far, there hasn’t been any issues. My lettuce and kale are growing. Even my okra plants are doing better well, the two that survived this rabbit invasion.
Grand Opening of Restaurant
I don’t know how my friends get news of all these cool things but they invited me to go with them to this grand opening of a restaurant called Jerry Ferrer. On their first day that we went, it had a time frame where it was opened and would serve free food until their kitchen was empty. We didn’t end up getting there early enough to try everything but we did manage to get a few things to share. It wasn’t enough to fix the hunger and we had to go grab something else to eat but it gave us a good vibe of the restaurant and the decor and the food.
A great concept here for those of you who don’t read French, for children under 12 years old, they pay their age. Their meal will include one dish plus an ice cream plus a surprise. I like surprises and it makes me wonder what it is. Unfortunately I’m not under 12 so that doesn’t help.
We tried their hot dog and the pulled pork sandwich. My friends also had the ice cream which I didn’t get so I forgot about taking a picture. I have to say that they have a cool twist to the food and I like the flavors quite a bit. I’m interested in dropping by for an actual meal.
Bistro Le Mechant Loup
Part two was at a little restaurant near Le Fagotin that I did a piece on before. I probably should have done one for this one but I didn’t see the need for it probably because it was a rather quick meal and since I was starving, it really didn’t make a difference. The night we went (Wednesday’s) was also the evening they have selected main meals at $15 each. I expect that maybe I’ll head back here eventually. Here’s what we had!
Fish and Chips
Smoked Meat Poutine
I’m not exactly sure of the verdict of my friend’s Smoked Meat Poutine but I liked the Fish and Chips a lot! The service was decent but I think it was slower just because it was a busy night. However, the dishes did seem to have a flair and I’m interested in trying out other items on the menu if I get a chance. Not to mention the decor is really rustic and matches with its small and cozy environment quite a bit.
Game Warp Review Episode: Life is Strange
Seems tireless and probably won’t appeal to a bunch of you but Life is Strange was a huge hit last year and if you’ve played it, maybe you’ll be interested in hearing us talk about it. Its pretty much an interactive movie so maybe it’ll be your cup of tea! 🙂
