The Launch of Summer

I heard about favourite meals from those too shy to post on the comments - I had a chuckle with my sister around our Tofino experience. She agrees that it was one of the best tasting meals we have ever had!

Just like the bottle of Kahlua I bought at duty free in Denver and then had to pay duty. I believe everyone remembers that it was the best kahlua - ever! What was that cost per ounce?

In June I stayed pretty close to home. Getting the summer look...

And we have new tenants...

The critter which I got whiff of occasionally this winter when I approached the shed in the back yard has been busy. There are 6 in the litter. Julia is quite bored by this new development.

So, this summer in Nelson, it seems stripes are in!

The Best Meals I Have Ever Eaten

One of the delights of journeying is getting to sample different types of food. If you live in Winnipeg (or Toronto perhaps), you don't have to travel far to get some deliciously diverse food.

Here are some of my most memorable meals:

1. Prime rib on a cruise ship between Miami and Puerto Rico. The meat was sooo tender.

2. Spaghetti on a Slocan Lake beach while camping. It was the best spaghetti ever. Perhaps it was enhanced when the lot slipped out of the pot when I was draining off the water??

3. Shrimp on a pier in St. Petersburg, Florida. How much did it cost? Ryan said, $2,500 for the first dozen and then $6.95 after that.

4. Turkey dinner made by my mom. It includes perogies filled with cheddar, potatoes and bacon!

5. Elizabeth's fry bread - surprise breakfast on my 50th birthday.

6. DQ Ultimate and onion rings after a Monday night weigh in.

7. French fries and gravy the day after a late night in the bar. Extra salt please.

8. Sitting around a campfire in Tofino, smokies (bought at the co-op: 4 for $10), and tortilla chips. This experience reminded my sister, "I hate camping." I laughed until we climbed into the tent.

9. Homemade pasta. Sausages with peppers.

10. Any meal with Ryan and Aimee.

Now it's your turn.... What's your most memorable meal?
