So we made an Old Flame - then packed all the booze away in boxes in the cupboard. Apparently a dry minister is going to be staying in the condo before I get back and I don't wish to offend (or tempt).

Cooked up a bit of rice and heated up the leftover Vietnamese Chicken. A perfectly satisfactory meal.

Now to pack more stuff away, get the Mini Green Egg tucked away, clothes packed...

Thanks for sharing! I've really enjoyed following along.

Me too. You've added a new "must have" toy to my list, the cotton candy machine.... :rolleyes::biggrin:

It's been terrific and a lot of fun.

(I'd love one of the cotton candy toys also.)

Had a lot of fun following along this week+... sorry to see it wrap up.


It's kinda like wrestling a gorilla... you don't stop when you're tired, you stop when the gorilla is tired.

You realize of course this cotton candy machine is going to come home and never, ever get used again! It's the way of all toys - fun for a while!

And, when you get tired of looking at it, the Northern Ontario Scavenger :biggrin: will offer to take it off your hands. No thrift stores up here, gotta do my bargain hunting long distance.

Seriously though, the bug to play with it again will hit. You'll probably figure out a way to whip up a batch of cotton candy and cover it in chocolate.

Funny you should mention that...

But it's such fun to play with. I did use mine when I was still catering to make "candyfloss" cone tops for cupcakes for parties for children. Very popular, especially as I made them at the party so the kids could see what I was doing.

And it was a bigger glass!" Terry Pratchett

True - I'm still determined to get the fat based one to work.

An Old Flame is the perfect drink to end with. What a wonderful week, I could hardly keep up. Learned I don't need the Milk Bar cookbook...or a cotton candy machine. Reinforced the value of the green egg. And really good breakfasts.

You'll get it. I have no doubt about that.

Well folks - it's time to bid you adieu - there is no more food in the fridge (well there are about 6 dozen eggs but they are going home with us) and the sun is just about all the way down.

It was not one of the truly amazing sunsets that the area is known for but it was still wonderfully peaceful sitting down by the water, listening to the loons, the sound of a baseball ringing off a metal bat in the distance and the drone of an engine from a boat coming in from one of the islands in the channel.

Tomorrow we'll head off down the island to catch the Chi-Cheemaun ferry which will take us from the island to Tobermory which is at the tip of the Bruce Peninsula. It's about 260 km home from there - and I'm sure it will take us a little longer than usual as there are a couple of liquor stores we need to hit and the emporium in Wiarton (home of Wiarton Willie - one of the spring predicting ground hogs). Never know what lovely junk you might find in the emporium!

Thanks for following along - it's been a whole lot of fun for us to share our food and experimentation with you.

Terrific blog ladies. Thanks for revealing your days and nights to us.

Thanks to all for following along. It's been great fun but I am ready to go home - I am such a wuzz away from my family. :smile:

It has been great following you guys. It made me miss home a bit and hanging with you two in the kitchen experimenting. Your sense of "Let's try it" is truly inspiring.

Truly inspiring....got my Momofuku pork belly made and the buns are in progress (used pre-cut round dim sum bun papers which I found at the local Asian store rather than hand cut parchment). Also had a go at the pig skin crackling which is in the fridge....made me get off my butt.

Thanks for your efforts.

      @Alleguede and I are in the lounge at Pearson awaiting our flight to Vegas for the IBIE (International Baking Industry Exhibition).
       
      I got the usually bomb sniffing swab done on my electronics - @Alleguede got the 3rd degree at customs. Anyone know what a carnet is? I believe I got that lecture the last time.
       

       
      Made myself a little cocktail, Maker's Mark, Grand Marnier, vintage port. I've had better! 
       

       
      Not a lot of choices to eat since it's rather late (not that earlier would have helped) - they also have pasta salad, Italian Wedding soup, Cream of mushroom soup, corn chips and salsa. There appear to be some cookies there as well. I'm trying to low carb as much as possible so I'm avoiding most of it.

      Host's note: the initial title of this thread was "Swarvin' in ???"  as a teaser.  Once the destination was identified as Newfoundland, the title was changed to reflect this.  The initial comments were based on the ??? In the title.
       
       
      And we'll soon be off.......culinary adventures to follow.

      Some of you may recall that in 2016 I had a blog about our trip to Newfoundland.  We are going there again tomorrow for a week, returning July 1 and I thought that since we are going to, and eating at, places different from that year, I would do another blog.  When I booked our flights and accommodations (7 places in 8 nights) last February, June 23rd seemed like a long ways away.  Yet here we are, about to leave.   I hope some of you will follow along as we travel through the province.

      In December, I spent 3 glorious weeks eating my way through Japan; Tokyo, Kanazawa, Kyoto, Sapporo, Hakodate and back to Tokyo. It was my 11th (!) trip to Japan but my mother had never been, so I thought I'd take the old girl over for a good time. We did not kill each other, surprisingly.
       
      I'll come back and caption these a little more informatively over coming weeks, but as you can see, we ate rather a lot.
