AUGUST 4 – 10: WEEKLY UPDATE

It was another good week to be a Piggy, Ladies and Gentlemen. Busy, but good!

The sun was out in full force, Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory asked me to sample their new Ice Cream Bars, The Wooden Spoon had its Grand Opening on Sunday in White Rock and I was able to stroll around the local Farmer’s Market that same afternoon. And on top of all those Piggy adventures, I was able to find the time to have a delicious home cooked meal with my bestest friend in the whole wide world! As far as dining goes, it never really gets much better than that.

All 3 Bars

I was lucky enough to try 3 different flavours – ‘routes’, as they call them – of the new Rocky Ridge Ice Cream bars from Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory. Although they were all incredibly delicious, and I mean REALLY delicious, I think I’d have to pick the Mint Avalanche Ridge as my favourite!

Wooden Spoon

The Wooden Spoon, Brunch & Bistro Co. has officially opened its doors and I couldn’t have been more excited to test it out. This stylish White Rock joint is serving what I think might just be my new favourite brunch item: The Sweet & Salty: challah toast topped with bacon, Havarti cheese, two poached eggs, hollandaise sauce & maple bourbon syrup. Go and treat yourself, Piggies – you won’t regret it!

Farmers Market

Deliciousness ahead – just follow the signs! Everything you need, you’ll find at this Farmer’s Market: http://www.whiterockfarmersmarket.ca/

Peaches

Brought in from Osoyoos, peaches and nectarines don’t get much juicier than this. Anyone have a favourite cobbler recipe that they could share?!

Family Dinner

Dinner for 4 – my favourite meal of the week! And would you believe that all the food came from Costco?! I’m telling you, this store never ceases to amaze me. We barbequed filet mignon, prepared sweet, delicious corn on the cob, mashed some rustic potatoes (mixing in my favourite Boursin cheese) and opened up a gorgeous bottle of Châteauneuf-du-Pape.

Lemonade

Oh, and did I mention that I had the most refreshing glass of Lemonade?! My gorgeous niece Piper, was more than happy to make sure my brother and I stayed super summer hydrated all Saturday long!

UNTIL NEXT WEEK, PIGGIES! …
