I organized an Open House at the Toronto Health Centre, where we received tons of food donations, including:
- 12 cupcakes and 12 cookies from Almond Butterfly
- 6 loaf cakes from Harbord Bakery
- 36 cookies from Phipps Bakery
- 30 scones from St. John’s Bakery
- 36 cookies from St. John’s Bakery
- 200 cheese tarts from Fugo Desserts
- 3 hours of tea samples from David’s Tea
- 100 cups of coffee from Druxy’s Deli
The turnout was fantastic, and we now have many new patients and 42 new contacts.
These oat pancakes turned out beautifully. These were made in-the-moment, where I added a pinch of this and a little of that. I don’t exactly have a recipe, but I will share one soon. Looking forward to trying this recipe with chocolate chips and frozen raspberries.
A couple of lovely places in the downtown Toronto area.
These enchiladas were made and devoured. Black beans, corn, sweet peppers and cheese with creamy corn tortillas and a green chili verde sauce tasted awesome with mild tomato salsa and some salt-and-peppered avocado.
Simple toast with nut butter and banana, and the much-needed morning yogurt!
I watched CIRKOPOLIS on Saturday! 😀
Cirkopolis was unbelievable. I had very high expectations since I’ve seen Cirque du Soleil a couple of times, but Cirkopolis was FUNNY, “intimate” (only 12 performers in the troupe!), inspiring, beautifully-designed with a great use of colour, and thoroughly entertaining. The show got better and better, and the pole act was favourite. It’s 85 minutes with no intermission: 7:30 to 8:55. I had expected it to be dance-y and theatrical, but it was very circus-like. There was even a pretty unique aerial apparatus that I can only describe as an “aerial drying rack”. I loved the show 100% and I wish you could all see it.
That’s it for this morning – heading to work soon. Have the best rest of the week!
