So last night we checked out Fly for the first time and lucky for us it was Retro Night! Woo Woo! We haven't been out in awhile so we made up for lost time and enjoyed a few drinks (perhaps a few too many for some of us) and are dealing with the consequences today.

I was at Loblaws one Saturday and they had a stand that was serving sample h'ordeurve size crostinis with mango chutney and mango chili chicken. Do you ever walk by the meat section where the butcher packages the meat for you and notice that they already have marinated meats? I walk by there all the time and don't ever think of buying these marinated meats. But when I tried the mango chicken crostinis... I was hooked!!!

Many times I have read that a characteristic of a Sagittarian is that they don't finish what they have started. I confess, this is some what true for myself. There have been times where I get all psyched up for a project or task and then I just for some reason, I lose interest or just don't finish it for whatever reason.
Sad but true... my vegetarian challenge has come to and end :o( I survived 3.5 days of being a vegetarian and just the thought of another 4 days was extremely difficult. After the first 3 days, my body just felt weird. I can't really explain it but it was like my body was changing. It wasn't getting weak but it didn't feel the same. Not sure what it was exactly but in any case, my craving for meat was unbearable tonight. I had a bagel with cream cheese for breakfast and a veggie plate at Jimmy The Greek for lunch. But when I came home from work today, all I could think about was MEAT.. chicken to be specific!
I ended my vegetarian challenge with St. Louis Wings!! mmm..... YUMMY IN MY TUMMY!! 3.5 days of veg and carbs was all I needed to know that I could NEVER be a vegetarian. Sorry people... I love food and meat is a big part of it.
I think I could totally have lasted if I could have a least had seafood but I was cut off from that as well. Maybe I'll try that one week and see how it goes.
Sheryl... my deepest apologies for losing your challenge. I actually enjoyed the first couple of days but that was about it.
Til the next challenge.....

- sweet potato fries (yes... again!)
Next time I go to Canyon Creek Chophouse. I'd love to try the slow roasted pork chops with lingonberrry sauce. It looked so good!
- poppyseed bagel with herb & garlic cream cheese
- Tomato pizza and sweet potato fries
The sweet potato fries were sssoooo good!!! The brand that I purchased was Alexia. Today was also good as I stayed home all day and loafed around! I love rainy Saturday's.
- apple muffin
- veg fried rice, noodles, and veggie spring rolls
- spaghetti with tomato sauce
So far so good. Today was an easy day. I went to Whole Foods with Sheryl & Dion and I couldn't believe that I found frozen sweet potato fries. I LOVE sweet potato fries and I've never seen a pack of frozen ones. I'll save it for tomorrow.

Ok so Sheryl has challened Lou and I to a Veggie Challenge. Problem is... Lou refuses to give up seafood so for her.. she'll be a pescetarian.
I've stocked up on pasta, veggies (of course), cheese, more pasta, pomodora pizza,. and more pasta. (I need to find some more recipes) Now just to clarify.. I know some vegetarians don't even eat cheese or eggs but according to Sheryl's challenge rules.. I can eat them :o) YAY!! Thank god!
So every day I will post a blog as to what I have eaten. I have to say.... I'm excited but am also wishing that I ate a street meat hotdog, a t-bone steak, a roasted chicken, and some bbq ribs this week but... oh well. I guess it'll have to wait.
Wish me luck!

This is what I had to get rid of:
Saturday, March 29, 2008
So I woke up this morning and all I was thinking about was that I wanted bacon for breakfast! Not sure what I was going to make it with but I haven't had crispy bacon in ages. As usual, Lou opted for the bacon and egg sandwich but for me... I wasn't really craving egg. I thought... "hhmm.. maybe I'll have a BLT". Uh.. no. No salad in the house. So, I looked at what was in the fridge and I thought.. "I know, I'll have a bacon, cucumber, and tomato salad!".

I know this isn't a food related blog entry, however, I think that saving our earth is extremely important.
Countries all over the world are participating in conserving energy for 1 hour. It started in Sydney, Australia and is spreading around the world. On Saturday, March 29, 2008, hundreds of thousands of people around the world are going to shut off all of their lights from 8pm to 9pm.

I was honoured and extremely happy to have been asked to take photos for my long time friend Ellen Fargas' organic baby food business. During the shoot I was so tempted to try some but didn't want to ruin the shoot with traces of my finger having been dipped into the food. Lucky Zach Attack gets to eat his mom's beautiful creation all day long.

Sorry I haven't been around lately. It's been so crazy lately as I'm moving into a new condo. I've got LOADS of pics and blogs that I want to post but just have no time. Once I'm settled into the new place, I promise it'll be one big blog vomit.
Oh and I did visit the UK again and FINALLY got to London. Here's a couple of pics.
Enjoy and stay tuned....
