Eat at home : Steamed fish

BO-ring!... but with roasted cherry tomato compote (I actually just drizzled white wine vinegar over them and mashed them up a bit), rosemary oven fries and roasted asparagus you've got quite a Friday fish dinner!


Have a great weekend!

Listen to your hometown : Sam Roberts

I can boast knowing someone who went to high school with Sam Roberts, but that aside this is just a great song and I thought I'd share it!

Eat at home : Homemade Chicken BLT

Sometimes the best ideas are my husband's harebrained ones! (But don't tell him). He requested a fried egg topped BLT but I went with some herb roasted chicken and homemade mayo instead... now what can be bad about that?

Eat your hometown : La Paryse

La Paryse has a bit of a reputation in Montreal for good burgers but with a few new players in town, it is definitely getting a run for its money! From the fancy and hip M:Brgr, the brainchild of the owners of Moishe's Steakhouse, to the more casual Le Gourmet Burger,... there are a lot choices for burger afficianados in Montreal. Even the American chain Five Guys has opened in Montreal!


Anyway, while I loved the atmosphere and location of La Paryse, I can't say I would want to go back for the food, it was so so for me, Le Gourmet Burger was much better and a lot closer. The fries were definitely worthwhile and so was the homemade not-too-sweet lemonade.




Closet Expansion : Chambray and white eyelet

I wrote a while back here about summer sandals and I did pick a pair up and never showed them off.

It's actually been so hot that wearing a shirt is hard but this outfit still feels so summery!

Following some amazing inspirations from Emily from Cupcakes and Cashmere (through a bit of obsessive web stalking - I read three years worth of posts in as many days), I have a renewed motivation for my blog and I'm considering revamping. As you can tell I have a great love of food and I would like to incorporate it into my blog (I kinda already have just totally unrelated!).

I also dabble in design and beauty and am thinking of introducing those topics as well, please let me know what you think and what you're looking forward to reading about!
