Welcome to March. That point in the winter when you wonder why you have chosen to relocate to a frozen tundra when you lived in Sydney, Australia not six months ago. While it is true that I miss the fine weather and the white-sand beaches I could never sacrifice the community I current have here in Toronto for a sun-tan.
The first thing I did upon Will’s return was hop in an uber with him and take him straight to Kettleman’s Bagels in the Glebe, Ottawa. I had a sesame bagel with vegan cream cheese. He had the vegetarian. I used to get it all the time in high school. That spicy eggplant rocks my world.
Last month, I sampled the vegan burger at Holy Chuck. It’s a fast-food burger joint that reminds me of America. The food is intentionally greasy. The fries are served in massive piles. The only vegetables in sight are the single piece of lettuce and that a couple slices of tomato used as garnish on your burger.
A week ago I posted a photo of this spaghetti with cauliflower Alfredo and grilled radicchio on Instagram. It was an impromptu meal that I threw together with leftover ingredients. Anyways, I think it’s my most liked post yet, which is funny given the circumstances. It was so easy to make and the photo was shot at my dining table in the worst lighting ever.
I wanted to save this spooky pasta post until I had time to photograph it with some sauce. Then, I realized that I am never going to have time for anything in my life again. Honestly, I do not know how non-professional bloggers find the time to cook, photograph and eat their spooky pasta while still attending to their jobs, relationships and household chores. It is impossible!
Will and I have never eaten in the restaurant because the temptation to enjoy take-away in the comfort of our own home cannot be overcome. We always order two veggie boxes packed with felafel, homous, garlic potato and our favourite- the kale salad.
