October 17, 2012

I discovered an amazing app, called Songza, that offers hours and hours and hours of great music. The best part? It can go straight to the Apple TV and be played through the stereo. iPadInsight.com sums up some of its other features perfectly:

☆Stream thousands of original playlists handmade by music experts.
☆Let Songza’s ‘Music Concierge’ find the right music for your moments.
☆Browse a curated playlist library organized by activity, genre, decade, & mood.
☆Save your favorite playlists & share them via Facebook, Twitter or email.

Thanksgiving lunch at Mario’s

October 14, 2012

Mario invited a bunch of us over to celebrate Canadian Thanksgiving… it was amazing 😀 Everybody brought such delicious food… let’s see if I can remember everything:

  • Mario – roasted pork belly and duck fat potatoes
  • Mike & Sandra – Meatloaf and apple tarts
  • Yoni – Sweet potato salad
  • Janet & Ben – Mac&Cheese and green been salad
  • Stacy – Pumpkin pie
  • MyCo – Wings (& salad I believe)
  • Jen & Alex – Roast lamb
  • Lauren – Salad
  • Saji – Drinks
  • Ben – Pumpkin risotto
  • Sarah – Mezze board
  • Sarah & Max – White chocolate mud cake

Is that everyone? I hope so! I’m sure everybody had super happy bellies by the afternoon 😉

I wish I had taken photos, but here are a few from Mario:

Thanks again to Mario and everyone else for a lovely lunch!

A yummy treat

As mentioned in the previous post, Yoni came by on Wednesday to make Mike and I crepes!

Here they are: 6 per person, haha

Our variety of simple fillings.

I made some apple pie filling (always my favourite) which tasted even better with condensed milk.
