Dining All Through the Weekend

I had a busy weekend of dining. I wrote about some of it in my last post. It started out on Friday night attending the Prairie Voices Tasting Notes, concert. I wrote about last year’s concert here. Then Saturday night we held a Chinese Dinner at St. Philip’s. Finally, on Sunday afternoon, I was at the Norwood-St. Boniface Legion, for the Ladies Auxiliary’s 90th Anniversary Dinner.

Hello Fresh- Unboxing – First Meal

A couple of weeks ago Shel Zolkewich, organizer of the Manitoba Food Bloggers group on Facebook, posted that she had a couple of codes for people who were willing to try out Hello Fresh, the meal planning service. Immediately on seeing this I messaged her saying I’d like to give one a try. When it comes to such an offer quick responses are important. Generally speaking whoever hesitates is lost. So, thank you Shel. You can check out my second…Continue readingHello Fresh- Unboxing – First Meal

Water into Wine: For the Common Good

This is today’s sermon. The readings it’s based on are: 1 Corinthians 12:1-11 and John 2:1-11. Spiritual Gifts and Water into Wine.

The Sermon from the Fringe title, derives from the fact that Winnipeg is in the middle of its Fringe Theatre Festival, and the fact that  the editors of the Lectionary, cut out the main body of the story when they chose the reading.The audio below is from last night at…Continue readingSermon from the Fringe – Mark 6:30-34, 53-56

Verde Juice Bar – Westminster Avenue

Verde Juice Bar is one of two new places on Westminster Avenue. I ended up there on my first visit, because Joy’s Tea which is next door was closed. The decor at Verde is the same as many of the newer restaurants opening. Lot’s of light wood, and wooden type sign boards and menu. Pleasant enough, but after awhile there seem little to distinguish one place from the next as far as appearance goes. Verde Juice Bar for Beverages My…Continue readingVerde Juice Bar – Westminster Avenue

Weekend Food Wanderings

Hopefully there will be a return to this sort of weekend in the near future. This past weekend was a busy one on the food front. It started with visiting the ManyFest Food Truck Wars and ended with a games night at St. Philip’s filled with chips, licorice, and pakora. In between the weekend included more Food Trucks, and a 50th anniversary BBQ at Church of the Way. I’m calling this post Weekend Food Wanderings because the weekend involved a…Continue readingWeekend Food Wanderings
