It’s not that I don’t have recipes or dishes to talk about these days – I do! I just really don’t feel up to doing it. Maybe it’s because winter is just dragging on and on and on…I’m sure a little bit of spring would get me motivated again. Thankfully, it’s daylight savings this weekend, so I’ll finally get to enjoy a bit more sun at the end of the day.
I do have a little bit of foodie news though! A few weeks ago, Soli attended the open call for Food Network’s new show, Recipes to Riches. It was definitely a fun experience being on the other side of the TV, the side with all the lights and cameras and headsets and stressed out people. When it airs, we’ll definitely share more!
We’re also on our way to the Au Pied de Cochon sugarshack this weekend. Last year’s was amazing, and I can’t wait to go again. We’ll be giving a nice detailed description, packed with photos, once again.
We were just on a short trip to Tremblant for a weekend for Soli’s birthday, where some of us enjoyed snowboarding more than others. We had a lame meal at one resto (lackluster chili and a burger with an unidentifiable margarine-mayonnaise sauce), but at our super-fancy condo (complete with two bathrooms, two floors, full kitchen and enough beds to sleep about 6 people), Soli cooked up some Dungeness crabs one night and a breakfast of duck, bacon and eggs the next morning. No pictures of that, but check out the view from our bedroom window! There’s also a few other pics from the weekend:
