We are still in the midst of a cold snap, so soup is on my mind all the time. It’s great for supper, great for lunch – warm, comforting, goes a long way, uses ingredients I have so I don’t have to go outside. Just before Christmas I bought a big bag of pre-cooked shrimp…then

Once upon a when-my-kids-were-little, I would ask the question, “what do you guys want for supper”, and a little voice would answer (generally the mancub), far more often than I appreciated, “Hamburger Helper”. Sorry, Betty Crocker, but I hate that stuff. It’s bland and the sauce is plastic-y and no amount of dressing it up

The family all drove out to Canmore today. As a collective, it’s one of our favourite places to be. The smell of the trees, the quieter streets (except in summer), the fewer tourists than Banff (there are places to park!), the river – it’s beautiful. It’s where my now son-in-law proposed to my daughter –

I had a plan – shortcuts all the way. I was going to the grocery store after work, going to grab a few things for a dessert I want to try and, while I was there, I was going to grab a jar of pasta sauce and a loaf of French bread or a couple

Fall, despite what the calendar says, has fallen in Calgary. Warm days (mostly) and cool nights. The leaves are falling – we really only have three colours here – green, yellow then brown. We only rarely have other leaf colours – the occasional purple, and the very, very occasional red. And that’s pretty much all

Mid August has descended upon Calgary, and so has cooler weather. It was a whopping 9C today. 34C a week or so ago, and 9C today. I was messaging with someone today and they mentioned that there was snow in Alberta last week – wasn’t sure where, exactly, but the rumour is out there. Given

Once upon a time, I worked full time across town, while riding Calgary Transit – although reliable, not the fastest or most direct method of getting anywhere. Calgary is a sprawling city. Downtown is quite closed in but very small compared to many other major cities, however the suburbs are massive. There are trains that

I went to grab a few things at the grocery store after work. You know that saying, “don’t food shop when you’re hungry”? I think it’s because you will buy anything just so you can get done and get out. That was my deal tonight. But I only spent $21 and change, so I was

It sounds weird, I know, but it’s really good. It’s supposed to be called a Big Mac salad, but I feel Big Mac has some very definite non-healthy feelings attached to the name. I occasionally indulge in the Mac of the Big size, and I have no guilt about it. They’re awesome. An indulgence, but

I gave away the leftovers in my freezer a couple of weeks ago. I went grocery shopping, came home with the loot and realized I had no room to put anything in the freezer – not the chest freezer, not the freezer over the fridge. So I made an emergency call to a friend and
