Before this week-end, I had never eaten food from a truck. The stigma that is attached to it is meat on a stick and crappy food. Texas is big on food trucks. They have food truck parks everywhere. There is actually one walking distance from my place. I have been hemming and hawing about going, […]
Tomorrow is Earth Hour where people across the globe will be turning off their lights for one full hour (8:30-9:30pm) to help fight climate change and take a stand. I will of course be turning off the lights, and either head out for a nice walk or just sit and chat with J.P. I wanted […]
Wordless Wednesday, a simple post which features a photo to convey a message that speaks for itself without using words; well not a lot of words!
When it comes to gardening, I most definitely do not have a green thumb. You would think with all my green talk that I would. I know- shocking! A few months ago, I saved a Poinsettia from dying in a landfill and let’s just say it will be spending the remainder of it’s time in […]
You know when you really want something and have been thinking about it for a few days and when the time comes- no dice? Well, that is exactly how I felt on Friday at the farmers market. I was down to the last few cucumbers on Thursday, so I just threw them in my juicer […]
This past week was Canada Water Week, a week-long celebration of water from coast-to-coast-to-coast. This years theme was “Discover your water footprint.” What does this mean to you? A water footprint is that of an individual, community or business and equals the total volume of freshwater that is used to produce the goods and services […]
Isn’t it beautiful? Don’t you think everyone should have access to freshwater like that? How many of you have ever experienced water scarcity? The closest I have ever come is limiting when I can water my lawn or plants in the summer months. It is hard to believe that 884 million people lack access to […]
Wordless Wednesday, a simple post which features a photo to convey a message that speaks for itself without using words; well not a lot of words! It is Canada Water Week. Let’s conserve our precious resource.
The carrots at the farmers market are the biggest, fattest and most delicious carrots I have ever seen and tasted. I tend to buy a lot of them during the week because I enjoy juicing them. Carrot and apple or carrot and pear juice really are one of the most refreshing juices. I love the […]
St-Patricks day is one of my all-time favorite days to celebrate. My grand-father literally got off a boat from Ireland and ended up in Canada. Growing up I remember how important it was for him to celebrate in style with his shillelagh in one hand and a beer in the other. I guess deep down […]
Wordless Wednesday, a simple post which features a photo to convey a message that speaks for itself without using words; well not a lot of words! Best buddies. We miss you, Kobe! And even Shadow is wondering where his partner in crime is.
I was disappointed with our CSA basket this week. It just seems they threw a bunch of random fruits and veggies in a basket with little though. I am pretty sure the only thing local was the tomatoes. We decided we are going to cancel our CSA basket and just purchase from the farmers market. […]
