Future of Feasting Climate Fall Supper

Last night I attended The Future of Feasting fall supper. This supper is a little different from the one’s I’ve attended so far. The Future of Feasting: A Climate Fall Supper was the brainchild of five local organizations. Wildnerness Committee: Manitoba Office, Green Action Centre, Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives: Manitoba Office, Manitoba Energy Justice Coalition, and Manitoba’s Climate Action Team. The dinner was held in the Roblin Room of Red River College. The tickets for The Future of Feasting…Continue readingFuture of Feasting Climate Fall Supper

Konjac Spaghetti – Shirataki Rice

I was roaming through my local Safeway the other day. I happened to look towards the bottom of one of the pasta aisle shelves and noticed this new (to me) product. It’s called Konjac Spaghetti, by a company called nuPasta. Underneath the  company  name,  you  can  see that the product is referred to as the low calorie pasta. When I first picked up the box, the thing that confused me was the weight. It’s listed as 210 g. However, when…Continue readingKonjac Spaghetti – Shirataki Rice

Petes Place Family Restaurant

This is a review that is about twenty months in the making. Petes Place has been on a journey during that time, as have I in trying to review it. Normally, I make two visits to a restaurant to try and get a feel for the menu. With Pete’s Place, I’ve ended up making five. My first visit was in December of 2016, on a day that I attempted to visit Baraka Pita, and finding it closed ended up at…Continue readingPetes Place Family Restaurant

Joe Average Buys Groceries

The New Year is upon us, and I am starting it off with a post inspired by activity in the Manitoba Food Bloggers group at the very end of last year. Group moderator and organizer and generally all-round terrific person Shel Zolkewich, posted a poll which stated that according to Stats Canada, the average Manitoba family spent $241.00 per person per month on food. I’m pretty much a Joe Average kind of guy, so this should work for me.Now, I…Continue readingJoe Average Buys Groceries

Pasquales – Marion Street

Despite being just off Marion, it’s really only recently that I have visited Pasquales(There should be an apostrophe but those nasty Google crawlers don’t like them). I had tried Pasquales as part of my Just Eat promo, but hadn’t been back since. In large part this is because I generally walk down the south side of the street, because that’s where the bus stop downtown is(I’m a creature of habit). However, I figured it was time I got there, so…Continue readingPasquales – Marion Street

Buccacino’s – Osborne Village

Last week was the second time in a row I connected with the Why Cook Wednesday’s Supper Club. The week before we had been in Osborne Village at Carlo’s and Murphy. This time we met at Buccacino’s. Buccacino’s is a traditional Italian restaurant. I think there was something else in that location many years ago, but my memory fails me. The restaurant is large and spacious. When we arrived there were not a lot of people in the restaurant. We…Continue readingBuccacino’s – Osborne Village
