We live in a small town. A small town in a fairly remote area. You know the kind. The kind where the exemptions in free shipping meets the map. Sigh. That means sometimes groceries are expensive. We like avocados here. Unfortunately buying them at our local grocery store is sometimes cost-prohibitive. When we head to… Continue reading avocado overload ~ chocolate pudding
We enjoyed a wonderful week with our Alberta girl! Not a lot is going on around here yet, so we mostly just chatted as we hung out, played games, watched movies and did a little sight-seeing. We each had a ‘date’ with her. We did have a few nice days to walk the beach, too.… Continue reading time with our girl and makin’ sushi

That’s the only way we have leftovers for rolls or sandwiches, and chowder. I believe I may need to try one of those delicious pasta recipes, as well. Lobster Rolls… Continue reading lobster leftovers…no really
Since we began traveling to the east coast, we have been on a quest for the best cup of seafood chowder. There have been many tasty samples along the way, but I think our favourite, as yet, has been the offering from the Water-Prince Corner Shop in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island. I believe we first heard… Continue reading chowdah
