Easter Brunch at The Enjoy Center

It’s not often that we get to hang out with Carlos, Christina, and their three adorable kids. We made plans to go to the Enjoy Center in St. Albert for brunch. The Enjoy Center is a beautiful green house slash organics super market and it happens to also have a really nice bistro as well. If you wander around you will also find a spa, a deli, a flower shop, a bakery, and a specialty wine store as well. Glasshouse Bistro The brunch was very good and the service was amazing. My eggs benedict had some really tasty tomatoes confit in them. I’ve never even heard of those before. The place did get a tiny bit warm near the end of the meal but this is normal considering we were in a giant greenhouse. I would definitely recommend the Glasshouse Bistro to anyone looking for a bright place to eat where there are a lot of families and children around. It’s a nice change over the dark dingy places around town with hung over students …

Simple Fish Tacos with Fresh Pico de Gallo

So I wanted to make some fish tacos for dinner but didn’t know where to begin. The only thing I had in my back pocket was that I was very well versed in eating fish tacos. I knew I needed some Salsa Aioli Mayo Fish Full disclaimer. I don’t live on a farm with fresh vegetables or meat. I’m not a vegan. I’m just a normal guy who tries to be healthy all the time but who also loves chips and beef jerky and instant noodles. This recipe is just something I made up and is just meant to be delicious and easy enough for the normal person who doesn’t have access to fresh truffles from France(which would probably be gross in this recipe). I use packaged stuff all the time and this recipe has fresh ingredients but it also has processed stuff off a grocery store shelf. It’s meant to be an inspiration to anyone who wants to make a delicious dinner that won’t take a long time and has run out of ideas. Hope …

SodaStream Source Demo

The Soda Stream Source is a cool little soda maker. I got it because I don’t really drink enough water and I think it’s cause I don’t really like water all that much. Curiously though, i like soda water quite a bit. I’ve had this machine for a while now and it definitely makes me drink a lot more water in my day. All in a very cool machine. I got the “Source” model because it looked pretty nice, but most importantly, it does not require any power. No batteries, no power outlets or wires need. I told my friend that I could make soda cuddled up in bed if I wanted… and I could. Here’s a quick video of it in action. Edit: After a while of use I have figured out a way to make soda without the machine making that crazy jet engine noise. Maybe one day I will make a new video but basically, I let go of the big button for a split second every time one of the lights …
