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!
