In the Dark

Quick what’s your favourite food trend?  Farm-to-table and locally sourced?  Everything adorned with a fried egg?  Food manipulated to look like other food aka molecular get over yourself gastronomy?  Fancy comfort food?  Bacon chocolate and bacon wrapped veggies and basically bacon everywhere?  Yeah, me too.

You know I’m not one for apologies. Same goes for helping you move, sleeping in a tent, wearing “flats”, and playing a team sport of any kind.  But I love you so much, my loyal little readers, that I say a very solemn and heartfelt I’m sorry for slacking on this here blog for as(…)

But I just had to tell you about a trip I took to somewhere far, far, not-that-far-but-it-sure-feels-far-if-you’re-flying-coach: Halifax, Nova(…)
