Big Apples and Good Burgers

 

 Yes, this apple is huge – and it was one of the smallest the supermarket! It’s a Honeycrisp apple, which is absolutely delicious and grown in Ontario.  But seriously – big! I had to find time and space in my stomach to eat it, and needed a knife too.  Quite the effort.

On a semi-related topic, Mark and I went out tonight to Chuck’s Burger Bar with the people from the Waterfall Hike a few weeks back.  It’s a really cute little restaurant on Locke St that serves amazing burgers.

The roof was really cool – with sort of aged metal tiles and hanging lights.  As I was browsing the menu I found their vege burger, and it turns out “Chuck” is a vegetarian, and well he knows how to make a damn good vegeburger.  The meat-eaters weren’t disappointed either, with Mark having a bacon burger.  The actual patty was bacon – crazy.

You can also choose all you toppings from a huge list – I got baby greens, cranberries, raspberry cheese, roasted garlic mayo and grilled peppers.

Not only were the burgers great, but they had real cream soda, as in the brown stuff in a glass bottle.  Sitting at the bar with my burger and soda I did feel like I had jumped back in time to the 50’s.

There is something great about drinking from a glass bottle – I feel as if I had a hard day and work and deserved the suck the sweetness out of the glass.  Not something I often do, but very enjoyable.

On a side note: it snowed last Thursday, and it was amazing.  I was in the library and looked outside and saw the fluffy white flakes dancing down from the sky.  I have been reluctant to blog about it because I couldn’t get any good photos – by the time I got home to my camera it had mostly finished.  Checking the weather today though, I came across a video that shows a little sample of the snow.  It melted before it hit the ground – but the flakes were gorgeous – and there were plenty of them.  The strange thing was, it was like a sun-snowshower! Very beautiful

While browsing around I also found a video of a little squirrel collecting leaves.  I am always blogging about the ways of these little critters, and so if ou would like to see what I gawk at for hours on end, this video shows just what they are like!

  1. That is one crazy-big apple – it wasn’t a GM apple was it? It looks delicious in any case. And speaking of fruit, this afternoon had I my first banana in months and months….That 1950s diner/hamburger place looks so cool and the burgers look like burgers should…although how did the ‘raspberry cheese’ taste like?

    1. I don’t think it was GM – maybe because we have been getting so much rain they just got huge! Bananas are so good! They’re cheaper over here which is crazy – I guess less cyclones to deal with.
