Quebec Part 5.0

Hey everyone!

How is everyone doing? I hope you’re all having a wonderful, wonderful week, because it’s the most wonderful time of the year! Just some more photos to show y’all, if you haven’t already checked out Part I, Part II, Part III, and oh yes, Part IV!

Anyways, here are some {hopefully} never-before-seen Quebec food photos from my trip last summer. Still missing the warm summer days and the lovely Quebec atmosphere…

Oatmeal with peanut butter, sliced banana, and maple syrup. On the right is my lunch – a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, mixed berries, raspberry yogurt, and Breton crackers. An interesting lunch for sure because we ate on the ground of a famous Cathedral during the YMCA Amazing Race. Our team was so fast that we made it to the third destination BEFORE the coordinators! We searched the whole cathedral, inside and out (including five sets of stairs), and by the time we emerged from the cathedral, completely exhausted, we realized that the coordinators were sitting by the gate – eating lunch! Every other group had passed us, and we ended up in last place… which explains why we gave up and ate our lunch on the cathedral ground.

A pretty tasty poppyseed cheesecake that I bought at La Marche Jean-Talon – with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream. I bought this for my family to share, and we all thought it was pretty delicious!

Another lunch – leftover chicken kebabs, a peanut butter and chocolate Larabar, and some Breton crackers. I brought this lunch on a day that the group went to McDonalds! Also a delicious cookie chunk maple gelato… mmm.

Chicken chow mein with peppers. This mix was from Costco and made a fantastic quick dinner! Also a heavenly carre aux dattes with vanilla ice cream. My favourite Quebec food ever! The crumbly top, sweet, caramel centre and rich ice cream is the best dessert I’ve ever had. Turns out it makes an awesome oatmeal topping too!

Breakfast: sliced plum, sliced prune, and some muffin-topped oatmeal with blueberries. Simple and delicious! Peanut butter toast with maple the next day… with some yogurt and berries (unpictured) probably!

Loved this dinner of maple + caramelized onion tilapia with rice. Luckily I saved the other half of my fish to have for lunch the next day! Another lunch: stuffed pepper with rice. My other favourite!

Chicken divan: steamed broccoli, shredded chicken, cheese, and delicious garlicky bread pieces on top.

NOT my favourite dinner – this was the worst one actually – garlicky crab and artichoke salad with corn OFF the cob. We all knew this wasn’t the best – and ended up walking to Vanille et Cie for an awesome gelato dessert. I had chocolate hazelnut and white chocolate.

Some more oatmeal, topped with yogurt and blueberries. Maple delights ice cream on the right. I sure loved that place!

Last but not least… the best carrot cake I’ve ever eaten in my life. Moist, rich, sweet but not too sweet, speckled with raisins and walnuts, with a subtle carrot taste and plenty of spices. Loved the sweet and tangy cream cheese frosting too. I’ll never eat another carrot cake in my life!

Merry Christmas for now!
