i'm back baby

A lil preview of one of our breaky sammie creations - Brothers smoked bacon, roasted tomato, caramelized onions, basted egg, brie, and arugula - OH MY!
So, it has finally happened. We have packed away our camping gear and settled back into life in the city. OK, I know it's October and we've been back for months now, but between moving, painting, and my new position cooking at a local cafe, we've been pretty damn busy. But, of course, never too busy to get out there and grab a bite, especially to our favourite Halifax spots we missed all summer. On that list: Boneheads (I may have a slight pulled pork addiction, or at least I did when I finished my season, eating it four times in about a two week span!), two separate brunches at Coastal Cafe (which is now mere minutes from the house...perhaps not such a good thing!), some fantastic local fare and wine at Brooklyn Warehouse, an amazing dinner at daMaurizio, some quick Vietnamese at Star Anise, a lovely dinner with out of town friends at the Wooden Monkey, Talay Thai (where we introduced my sis to Thai and she loved it!), an oh so fresh banh mi at Indochine, The Bicycle Thief for some birthday appys and wine, and, of course, the list wouldn't be complete without a sushi lunch at Sushi Nami. Oh, it gets worse...just last night we went to Curry Village for a feast (but that blog is coming) and the list doesn't even include croissants and cappuccinos at Two If By Sea or a chocolate and NS wine tasting at Sugah! Wow, we eat out ALOT! And not only are we frequenting all these Hali restos, but we are cooking up a storm too with no blogs to show for it. That's why I promise this year will be filled with blogs a plenty including restaurant reviews, updates on the cafe, loads of recipes, and I am hoping some pieces on diet and nutrition.

So folks, grab your forks and stay tuned. It's gonna be a delicious ride.....
