|Snow Maze and Honey Bear|
This is a crazy amount of snow and I'm totally ready for a break. While I wish I was heading somewhere sunny and warm, I'll happily take the warmth of family. Honey Bear and I are off for a visit to Ontario for 8 days and is it wrong that I'm thrilled about breaking the 100 Mile Challenge? As my father calls it, I'll be savouring the Million Mile Diet. While enjoying family time, we also have an exciting day of grazing planned.
My Dad and I will be partaking in a full day in Toronto doing what we do best: Ethno-Grazing. We visit several restaurants and take-out joints and eat little bits of everything and bring home huge amounts of food to enjoy over the next several days. Here's what I have in mind: Ethopian, Ukrainian, Polish, Chinese, Vietnamese and more. I even plan to bring home some Niagara wine and some sausages from the St. Lawrence Market for Jeff to enjoy upon our return.
Before I jet off, I made use of the handy crock pot and made a sirloin tip roast in a marinara sauce with onions, turnip, potatoes, smashed garlic, mushrooms and carrots. There's something comforting in crock pot meal, although be warned: there is such a thing as too much crock pot! Tender meat is great, but when you could gum your food, it's time to put down the crock pot and return to your oven roasting ways!
