October Eats

Happy Halloween! I hope you all had a safe and delicious end-of-October. πŸ™‚ Check out some of these fantastic meals I’ve had!

PS: I have a super sore throat. I was coughed on yesterday at the hospital, and I’m clearly sick now. 😦 Even after 10 hours of sleep, I feel weak – too bad I have an aerial silks lesson coming up in half an hour! Hoping that the exercise will make me feel better?

Party lunch with steamed garlic broccoli, rice, maple-soy salmon, and stir-fried vermicelli noodles with shrimp.

Brunch at Whole Foods! I love, LOVE having brunch there. Their cottage cheese is so creamy, and my favourite item here is the blueberry brioche French toast. Also loved the mushroom and goat cheese strata. And yes, I had mac and cheese and chicken cacciatore in the morning. :mrgreen: What an awesome start to my day!

And then, like it couldn’t get any better… we had ice cream from Rain or Shine!

Yes, this is my new favourite place. EVER. Here we have strawberry cheesecake, brown butter pear, coffee, and vanilla caramel. This was so delicious and probably the best ice cream I’ve ever had. 100% made in-house with fresh and local ingredients, these ice creams were INCREDIBLE. I wanted to buy the whole store! They even had a peanut butter flavour… next time!

Lunch at Kefi, a Greek restaurant. These were the appetizers: spanakopita, garlic lemon shrimp, pita bread, and my special spanakopita πŸ™‚

Seline’s dish of seafood scampi (yup, at a Greek restaurant), and my spinach and feta-stuffed chicken breast with almond green beans and Greek salad.

Mom had the BEST mousaka, a lasagna-type dish made with eggplant, ground beef, and a cheesy potato layer. This was SO good! She also had tzatziki, lemon-roasted potatoes, and rice. Grandpa had the salmon kebab with the same sides.

My plate after sharing! I had a little of everyone’s food. YES! πŸ™‚

This was SO awesome – a mix and match lunch. Mom and I made a big tasting platter with all kinds of dip (spinach ranch, salsa, hummus, etc.) and a big paprika egg salad with scallions. Served with toasted pitas, crunchy tortilla triangles, raw veggies, and cheese + crackers. My favourite combination was the sharp cheddar with grapes and pepper crackers!

All together… with some more dippers for dessert. Strawberries and sliced bananas with honey + peanut butter Greek yogurt dip – with cinnamon on top!
