Chocolate Day + Scarborough Tour!

My flight back to BC is already booked for December 16th! I can’t wait.

That being said, I absolutely l-o-v-e it here.

This is my new bedroom. It’s more spacious than I’d expected, and I love all the shelves. These photos were taken on my first night, but now everything is cleaned up and sorted out.

My kitchen looking simple. Not bad for a basement suite!

House!

On my first night in Scarborough, I had dinner at Fratelli Pizzeria, where I enjoyed the most delicious ravioli I’ve ever had in my life. Portobello mushroom ravioli with rapini and gorgonzola cream sauce, to be exact. Dessert was a homemade tiramisu, which was much larger than it appears in this martini cup.

After this mouthwatering meal, I’ve had to resist the urge to walk to Fratelli (it’s a 15-minute walk from my house) every night. I can’t wait to try their oven-fired pizzas.

Dad and Mom on the left, and my landlord and myself on the right. I locked myself out of my room by closing the door too hard, and she had to come rescue me.

This is my office at Centennial College, where I’m working as an Anatomy and Physiology Tutor.

On Saturday, I spent the afternoon in downtown Toronto (about 40-minute drive or 1 hour + 10-minute bus/subway). I had a snack of spinach and feta borek, which is like a phyllo pastry, and my #1 favourite London Fog – both at Moonbean Café in Kensington Market.

This is my favourite London Fog. Ever.

On Sunday night, I heated up some store-bought cabbage roll and boiled some broccoli, which I then sauteed with salt and pepper. The cabbage roll was really tasty! The meal was followed up with a great dessert that I also purchased from Pusateri’s.

Frittata ❤ With fresh zucchini. Surprisingly, I made this in the rice cooker!

This is my “usual breakfast” – pumpkin puree stirred into oatmeal, with nut butter, chopped prunes, hemp hearts, pumpkin seeds, and cinnamon. It tastes like fall to me.

Today was National Chocolate Day! This morning, I stirred in 1-2 tablespoons of cocoa powder and added extra honey. This bowl was extra decadent and incredible, especially with that salty sunflower butter.

My new backyard looks like a campground.

On my walk to work. Isn’t this beautiful?

My office again. 🙂

Notes and things:

Plus there’s a Farmer’s Market! I bought curried butternut squash soup, Thai green curry paste, three scones, a zucchini, and a quiche. Can’t wait to feast tonight ❤

      1. That looks so freaking delicious. I’ll bet the addition of cinnamon really took it to the next level! Now, if only I had a donut pan (or any pan… or an oven) 😉

        Happy fall!
