Avocado Toast for Breakfast

Wake up, prepare a cup of tea, make breakfast and lounge with Tank. An empty house, open windows, with only the sounds of song birds and the occasional car driving by, and no one shuffling about. (Individuals in this house like to put on slippers and shuffle their feet about rather than walk- such a pet peeve). The perfect morning.

Oven Poached Salmon & Garlic Shrimp

A light and refreshing dinner of poached salmon with dill and lemon and sides of sautéed garlic butter shrimp and steamed green beans. It was quick, effortless and delicious. Yum!

SongCook's Korean Restaurant

I met my friend K for dinner a couple Thursday's ago and we decided on Korean food to curb our cravings. It was kind of chilly, and a little rainy so heading to SongCook's was the perfect decision. We got there at around 7pm and could already tell they were understaffed, as we had to wait to be greeted by a host, followed more waiting before we were even seated.

Hydrocortisone, We Love You

We've established that Tank's PF (feline pemphigus foliaceus), is triggered by seasonal changes. From winter to spring and from summer to autumn is when it flares up. I mentioned in my post a little over a week ago that her's had been triggered and that it had started on the delicate tips of her ears. It's super stressful knowing how bad it can get.

Dining Out: Pho Bistro

My family and I had a casual dinner out for my brother's birthday and he chose to go to Pho Bistro. It's a nice little restaurant with an appealing interior. The service was quick, food was good and fresh.

Dairy & Egg Free Cookie Dough Gelato

Would you look at that creaminess?! Out of all the gelato and ice cream recipes I've been experimenting with, this one had the best texture. Super smooth and delicious. Scooping it was a dream and eating it was pretty much guilt free!

Monday Tulips & Tank's PF

A little pick me up for Monday.
Tank's pemphigus foliaceus (auto-immune disorder of the skin/hair follicles) has started to flare up. It began last week. Ugh, I was hoping so much that her body would somehow ignore the seasonal changes and just be normal. It has started on her ears, so we're back to the cleaning and medicating two times a day regimen usually followed by the dreaded e-collar for a couple hours. Hopefully the topical medication will keep things under control and we won't have to visit the vet to get a Rx and more tests!

Turkey Dinner Tuesday, Not Really Easter

Happy Easter and Passover to those who celebrate!

My family and I don't really celebrate either one, but for the sake of freeing up some freezer space in the chest freezer, we decided that I'd make a turkey dinner. The bird had been sitting frozen since Thanksgiving! I reluctantly agreed, 'cause no one else would and it was delicious.

Seeds & Dirt

A couple weeks ago, I started the process of starting little seedlings. The weather is still indecisive, being 10C one day and then -10 the next, so I'm starting them inside. I have a variety of seeds that I've  been hoarding, probably for too long and so I decided to use those. Whatever germinates and grows, I'll raise and if they're duds, oh well! 

About

Hi, I'm Janetta from Toronto. I cook, bake and make big messes. I photograph nearly everything and those photos will most likely end up being posted here. I've got a little black cat named Tank, who's super cute and a little bit nosy. You'll see a lot of photos of her too!
