If we can discuss whale curries on another thread can we discuss purple potamus sandwiches here?   She was too cute not to mention. I have a thing about hippopotamuses and she will get added to my collection.  I will not be making sandwiches from her.

 

Instead I made this which is not nearly so cute:

 Tomatoes, sprinkled with TJ‘s umami powder and held together with kewpie mayo, between two slices of rye toast.

And now it's early August and I'm hearing "I Want A Hippopotamus For Christmas" in my head. :D

So I wasn't long at the Wiki Nursing Home today - so was able to enjoy the Wegman's Butter Chicken I had picked up at Barny's.

 

IMG_7365.thumb.jpg.8cf8b850ccadd802db27e5ea3106695d.jpg

 

It passed muster for a quick meal. If we were staying up here I'd put a few more in the freezer but I can't see trying to lug them home.

I had planned the Little Italy for tonight - to be served right after I got back from dropping the stuff to be kept in the clinic fridge until next time. That would be the brand new bottle of marischino cherries - an integral part of the Little Italy. DUH!

 

So Brother's Perryman it is - with the orange rind cut off with a knife instead of a peeler - which is packed - DUH!

My GF was horrified recently to learn that I'd never seen it.

 

Alas, it came along after kids and before grandkids. I'm sure we'll manage to find it somewhere on our TV package or online.

If it's any consolation, I have no clue what movie you are all talking about ..... and it would be a really safe bet to say I've never seen it either!

That movie made me cry. I thought you were talking about a movie with hippo song in it. I was drawing blanks.

 We left a Little Current around  8:45, stopped to pick up breakfast in Espanola,  stopped for a bathroom break in Sudbury (Tim Hortons are the best for that!)  and arrived at my house about 3:30.   By then we were all getting antsy and Kerry still had a half an hour or so before she was home with Kira.

 Sausage McMuffin with egg (and pepper) for me.  I really enjoyed it although I won’t make a habit of it.

 

 Thanks as always for your support and interest in our comings and goings.

      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.
