 Thank you. I know that is not the recipe but it definitely offers interesting uses of this delicious marmalade.

 Since the Kit Kat was not going to make a very satisfactory pain au chocolat, on the off chance that I would need to buy out the store I decided I should try a bar with my early afternoon coffee.

 

 A bit disappointing I must say. Not much coffee flavour at all and it appears they have put a layer of ganache over the biscuits and the biscuits are not as crunchy as in the original bar.  The chocolate they have used is pretty sad too, of course.  But nothing ventured, nothing gained as they say.  Don’t see them making a big splash on the candy scene.

Grilled chicken club sub - too windy to be fooling around turning it over for the beauty shot.

 

Dogs in Wiki have a good life - there were at least 4 in this family - they came down for a swim and to check out some visiting dogs that were swimming.

What the heck is a "Meatbar"?????

Kind of like jerky. These ones sadly turned out to have a bunch of seeds and cranberries in them - the plain ones I have had before I much preferred.

Dipped some of the popped corn cakes and the key lime twizzlers for work today

I had added a little lime oil to the white chocolate so made a few skinny bars with the remains

But they actually taste better than the way too bland corn thingies! Next corn thingies will get crushed, added to chocolate for a bark and a ton of salt added in there.

My second breakfast. Had a slice of toast with Sicilian lemon marmalade shortly after I woke up.  Fig and olive Raincoast Crisps, smoky blue cheese and some grapes. At just one dollar a package, the crisps were quite a bargain.

 

 I am moving in very slow motion this morning and I have not apparently engaged my brain just yet since I managed to cut two fingers while preparing my breakfast. I was using a very sharp knife so these are little more than deep paper cuts and required nothing more than a Band-Aid.  But they are annoying!  .

The cookies I took today. They went down well but I was not impressed myself.

 

 

 

I've made these, too! Mine were flat as well, but I liked them. Perhaps the additional hazelnut oil I added helped.

It's as though when you order a sirloin steak, it comes with a side of maggots."

Wait.  What?  Free room?  

 

Man, around here they only get discounted lol.

You beat me to it!!!  Where is this magical free room? Around here, we don't even get discounted!

 

Also, @Kerry Beal what did you think of the Robuchon fries? How do you think they compare with other methods?  The best fries I've ever had were ones I made using Dave Arnold's method on Cooking Issues many years ago... granted, it took practically all day and required stuff like Pectinex to degrade the surface pectin, but they were awesome... perfectly fluffy on the inside, and super crisp on the outside, even once cold they stayed crisp!

RE Whisky Smash

 

I've been playing a game since I found this year's Manitoulin Thread. A while ago I bought an on-sale Kindle bar recipes book and I've tried looking up the recipe for each cocktail you post about. So far I've only found the Amaretto Sour. I'll have to buy a better book.

 

I do look up recipes on-line occasionally. I still need to go to a proper bar to try the Brothers Perryman.

      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.

      I have just returned home after four days (three nights) in Guilin. This was a business trip, so no exotic tales this time. Just food. Anyway, despite its reputation, Guilin is actually a rather dull city for the most part - anything interesting lies outside the city in the surrounding countryside.
       
      I was staying in the far east of the city away from the rip-off tourist hotels and restaurants and spent my time with local people eating in normal restaurants.
       
      I arrived in Wednesday just in time for lunch.
       
      LUNCH WEDNESDAY
       
      We started with the obligatory oil tea.
       

      Oil Tea
       

      Omelette with Chinese Chives
       

      Stir-fried Mixed Vegetables
       

      Sour Beef with Pickled Chillies
       

      Cakes*
       

      Morning Glory / Water Spinach**
       
      * I asked what the cakes were but they got rather coy when it came to details. It seems these are unique to this restaurant.
       
      ** The Chinese name is 空心菜 kōng xīn cài, which literally means 'empty heart vegetable', describing the hollow stems.
