How was your weekend friends?! Saturday was a such a gorgeous sunny day in Toronto – I remember checking the weather on my phone when I woke up and reading a lowly, blustery 6 degrees. But when I got outside it was so warm and sunny – the perfect weekend pick-me-up!
I ventured out for brunch that day with a couple of funny foodie friends. Among all the laughs were a NUMBER of food photos of the yummy middle eastern cuisine at Souk Tabule – in Toronto’s Canary District. PS, everything at that restaurant was fantastic! I’m looking forward to sharing all the photos and menu recommendations with you soon!
After brunch, I walked around town soaking in the warm November rays in search for a few props I needed for some weekend food photography. Namely some mini mason jars that I used to make jarred French Toast!
After all of my walking and photo-prop hunting I needed an afternoon pick me up!
I decided to try a new smokey-chocolate coffee blend from a local company here in Toronto called Black Coffee Co. You can find them on Instagram at @theblackcoffeeco. I’m not normally a fan of flavoured coffees but this one was superb!
The coffee itself was super smooth and the notes of chocolate were subtle and so so delicious. I’m sure that if you’re someone who loves putting milk or cream in your coffee, this would be a life-changing blend for you!
How DO you drink your coffee though?! I drink it black!
Sometimes I like to add a dash of cinnamon for flavor, but typically I always drink it black. Some of you may know that I’ve actually stopped drinking milk recently, for a number of reasons, so I guess a good alternative could be almond milk, but I just prefer the flavor of the coffee au-naturel!
Sunday was no time for rest! I had a storm in the kitchen!
I’m excited to share with you that as of last week, I am now officially a President’s Choice Ambassador! Yes, it’s true! Myself and a select group of other bloggers will be taking you behind the scenes of some exciting new product launches and events hosted by Loblaw’s, President’s Choice and a number of their brands. With that comes many exciting projects that I’ll be sharing with you from now through to April.
Given this exciting news, I’m sure you could only picture what my Sunday looked like, cooking up a storm and forcing S to be my taste tester! He didn’t mind, he didn’t even have to make one meal that day! As a little PS from what PC has in store this month, I can tell you that they’ve definitely inspired me and S to add a little twist to our holiday traditions. Oh and their new foods are totally drool-worthy! Get reeeeeaaaaady!
