Fried Bologna

Not something I have very often but something, when thought about, makes my mouth water… fried bologna. While researching the origins of fried bologna I came across this article in The Telegram; Hunting the origins of “Newfie Steak”. It’s widely known us Canadians like to make fun of ourselves and it’s plain to see in…

Bridgehead Review

I first heard of Bridgehead from a friend back home… I’ll be honest, I had never seen or heard of the place during my frequent travels. The origins of Bridgehead go way back to 1981. Possibly making this the best kept secret in my ‘coffee’ world. Some excerpts from their History page below. Two United…

Mouldy Bread

For lunch yesterday, I decided to have a toasted English muffin with Peanut Butter and a little butter… who am I kidding, a lot of butter. The first one was sooooo good that I had to have another. That’s when I noticed the mould… My first reaction was to check the date on the English…

Thai Green Curry

I spend a lot of time on the road and like to try different places to eat. Thai being a favourite with Green Curry Chicken at the top of the list. I’ve tried it in many cities, often relying on Google to find me the best place. Earlier tonight was no different… A search for…

The Banana Cake

When your wife brings home a Banana Cake… walk away. Tuesday night was Pita’s birthday. Not her real name, a nickname. I picked up some Pad Thai. My wife had been raving about these Banana Cakes from some fancy bakery downtown and brought one home for the party. It wasn’t big, maybe ten inches in…

Toilets and Food

The two don’t mix and never should… There are many things you can do while sitting on a toilet. Read a book, the newspaper, check all your social media feeds, some people even talk on their phones and there are some bodily function too. Eating is definitely not one of the things that should be…

Meatloaf Sandwich

This past week I had meatloaf… It’s been a while since my last feed of meatloaf. In fact, the last time I had meatloaf was while in Chicago on business. A group of us went out to the Weber Grill Restaurant, on my recommendation. On a previous trip, I visited the same restaurant and had…

Fig Pizza

In Ottawa for work and was lucky enough to meet up with my cousin and his wife. After some local, flavoured beer; his vanilla, mine blueberry, we started thinking about dinner. There are many restaurants to choose from in the area, some bordering on the exotic. In the end, we decided on Italian and went…

My Failures

How many times have you failed at something? One, two, maybe three times? More? Have you ever compiled a list? I was reflecting on this today after my boss sent me a joke loosely based on reality. We’ve all failed at something; be it a project, a relationship, a resolution or even a Sunday dinner….
