What we've been up to...by kim

The heart cake, mmm filled with chocolate mousse!The suisse cake, with decadent layers of chocolate cake and mousse, and whipped cream.
The poutine, okay, we had to share a small plate, I love the cheese and the gravy, but the fries are always tooo salty mixed with everything else, this poutine had chicken on top of it...??? we don't know how that happened!!
Okay this is the bonus picture and no those are not my feet!!! Can'tcha tell, those are frog feet, see the webbed toes;)
I heart Montreal!!!!!!

Not only because the love of my life happens to reside there. Seriously, this town is so amazing, and I have only seen a very teeny tiny part of it. I'm just used to living in a very small town. You know the kind...where when a person of a different culture comes in, and it's in the town newspaper. (not a joke, btw)

I love the options in Montreal.

I love being able to go to the outdoor Jean-Talon Marche, where I am guaranteed to find whatever yummy fruits I would like. We walk the rows of fruits, tasting each vendor to see what tastes the best. This time, it was the oranges, kiwis, cherry tomatoes, pineapples..oooh, I'm drooling.

I love to pick all the freshes mushrooms, green beans, pototoes, asparagus and other leafy green things.

I love to look through all the meat shops, trying to figure out what the names are and what types of meat they are. I bought some cheval, mmmmm, makes my mouth water...and magret that was fed only flax seed. We tried some real foi gras...first I bought a small piece for $10 that was uncooked, and we attempted to cook it at home, it was okay, but the flavor was hard to appreciate, as we followed the suggested recipe and cooked it in a fig sauce. So because I was so curious as to what it really tasted like. (this was real foi gras, not a pate!) I purchased the piece that the chef at the butcher place made, and oooh my goodness. I dreamt of it all night!

I love the Premiere Moisson Boulangerie, we had chausson aux pommes, and chocolatines, a heart chocolate torte, and a suisse torte..mmmmm

Even the television has more diversity! We watched the funniest show, that I don't think will ever play in USA..it is called, The little mosque on the praire. It was really great and diverse. We also got to watch, Corner Gas, which we love!

Once again, we are very sad not to be with the frog, but, ony 2 days and he will be here till monday:) Ayayay, we travel alot, when we are done with this commuting stuff, nothing will be able to get us on the road again for quite a while!

Oh yes, one more thing..we saw two movies. Bridge to Terabithia (balled my eyes out!) and I saw Because I said so! (great movie!!!)

AND..I bought the kids some summer clothes..they were saying..well it's not summer, why would be buy clothes now?? and I was saying...silly look at all the signs..they say soldes!! That means sales, we need to buy now to get good prices...muahhahah, they are so easy to fool!

I've virtually no expertise in programming but I had been hoping to start my own blog in the near future. Anyway, if you have any recommendations or techniques for new blog owners please share. I know this is off subject nevertheless I simply had to ask. Kudos!
