Have you purchased your Turkey yet?

STOP!

Maybe this year you don’t have to spend any of your hard earned money on that expensive bird. This year all the extra cash you have can be put into side dishes to flank your foul, like fancy candied yams, peas in minted cream sauce, and walnut cranberry stuffing!
Save-On-Foods is offering an amazing deal for those of you who have been toiling away at your More Rewards points: a whole FREE TURKEY!

Only 10000 points, its an up to 7kg(15lbs) Turkey!!

The sale starts Friday October 3rd till Sunday October 5, while supplies last.

To me “While Supplies Last” means get there early in the day,  like before work right when they open(stash that Turkey in the freezer in the lunch room and be the envy of your coworkers) or get your friend/relative that’s free to go early for best selection.

Stores open at 6am 😀

BuyLow_Sign I was scootering past Buy-Low Foods and noticed these awesome deals, so I stopped in to check them out for you. This particular Buy-Low store is best to shop at during off hours if you can make it during mid morning or mid afternoon. My Check Out Clerk informed me that it is a bit of a mad-house on the weekends given the popularity of the deals!

To me crazy deals mean:

  • Get a coffee before attempting to enter the grocery store
  • Take a list marked with sale items you want to achieve
  • Be prepared to wait, as in you don’t need to be anywhere for the next half hour to forty five minutes
  • Chat with people in line, we are all in the business of finding the deals ❤

Victoria’s just opened their doors!

On Saturday I was navigating a rain filled Hornby Street just north of Smithe across the street from the Courthouse, dodging tourist umbrellas and determined locals. The rain had put a chill in the afternoon air and my fingers had long ago lost their warmth on the plastic umbrella handle. The open door and welcome warmth of Victoria’s easily lured me off the dripping streets of Vancouver. An open juice/coffee bar counter anchors the middle of the shop, though everything in the shop will draw your eye! The front of house is a striking copse of forest craft benches and tables, a relaxing place to enjoy your fresh smoothie or artisan espresso. The shelves were being stocked with a wide range of holistic supplies, for the very first time.

I was greeted by the friendly barista behind the counter who was whipping up a sparkling green smoothie for the owner. As he worked the barista informed me that the sign was not in from the printers yet ( I may have been circling the counter looking for a menu). Since the signage was missing the deal is as follows: $2 for any coffee (ANY style coffee!)
$5 for any Smoothie (ANY!)
The glistening green smoothie the owner had ordered was delicious, I tried a sample of it’s freshness, however I was really in the mood for a latte. While my new barista friend was making my almond milk latte on his beautiful corvette of an espresso machine he regaled me with a tale of his time in Italy training to use the red behemoth in front of him and learning the art of coffee, right down to their own shop bean roast. The latte was as delicious as the story that went with it.

20140325-065336.jpg I lingered for a bit in the warmth of Victoria’s shop and savored my perfectly hot latte. Next on my errand list was the other Victoria’s in that part of town. 😉

Marvelous Meatless Monday

Edible <3

Meatless Monday: Spaghetti alla Puttanesca In following with the Meatless Monday craze, I tried my hand at this tasty 1960’s era Italian classic!
This dish that boasts an explosion of authentic Italian flavor first crossed my pallete at the Italian night clubs on college street in Little Italy, Toronto in the summer of 2012. Since then I’ve dreamed of making it but contemplated that it must be complex, as it was sooooooo mouthwatering. However research has proven my overly contemplative mind wrong once again…

Interesting tid bit of history, this dish I randomly tried in a night club for a late night sup is famous!?!?!! Go figure.

It’s also two days before payday so making do with what is present in the fridge and pantry is key! Luckily all wanted ingredients were present (I’m not an anchovy fan so those were nixed) added a lil bit of white onion and a splash of wine to simmer up my take on Spaghetti alla Puttanesca.

The end results full stomach, famous Italian recipe cooked, and stored in memory for the next authentic Italian cuisine craving.
