One Day Closer

A quick one today. I just finished wrapping up my strawberry white chocolate chip rice krispie treats and here they are.
The info once again, in case you forgot.
Spread the word and help some people in need.

Lastly, why not get some new Hodgy Beats of OFWGKTA fame into your ears?

More Info Plus More Intrigue

Here we are, another day closer to THE EVENT, so tell a friend or all of them with that link if you mess with FB. Onto more visually intriguing things like another teaser of what will be available on Saturday...and that is caramel apple spice cupcakes.
Now, since that is out of the way, let me move onto something that has been infecting my ears for the last week and a half. The Weeknd are pretty much all I listen to lately. They have me completely hooked. Great songs, great cover art and an air of mystery about them.
Do yourself a favor and check them out.

Fundraiser Alert

This Saturday it just happens to be going down. Bad things happen and then good people have to get together to try help others. Here is where you can do that if you live in Winnipeg or feel like making a trip for delicious treats.
Just a little sneak preview of what is going to be available on Saturday. Raspberry chocolate chip blondies.More previews as the week progresses.

A big thanks to Scott for doing the flyer for this event. A big thanks in advance to everyone that is contributing something to the sale. If you have the time, please come out and support the cause.

It has been a long long time since a real game of bingo has happened and blingo at the triple rock just doesn't really count. I'm pretty certain you can guess what I did tonight from this picture.

The Beast was all over the place at his first real bingo experience, very enjoyable to watch a man bite off more than he can chew.
See you every Monday?

On a completely unrelated side note 5th Column just released their spring line, so go and cop some new tees.

Oh Gala La

Friday marked the Canadian Hemophilia Society - Manitoba Chapter's 8th annual Gala Dinner of Culinary Inspirations. I didn't capture too many pictures myself, only of a few of the courses that were enjoyed, but a bevy should surface soon enough and be posted on the event's website. If you didn't this year, make sure you plan on attending next year as we only plan on getting bigger and better as the years go by. Now onto two of the courses that I snapped pics of. First off is sesame crusted tofu served with asian slaw and tropical salsa.
This could very well be the best dish I have had at any of the gala dinners. The flavors were just damn near perfect in this dish so I couldn't argue with its greatness. It could be because of the whole vegan thing and this was the first year that they incorporated a protein into the dishes to make it more substantial for people who stray from the old meat eating path. I also understand that it isn't going to be a vegan gala dinner and that is fine but I like to see the chefs taking some pride in what they send out and accepting the challenge. The biggest gripe I used to have was getting a fruit plate for dessert but this year that all changed when chocolate ice cream and a mixed berry sauce showed up in front of me. It was a breath of fresh air to have an actual sweet dessert to finish the meal with.
I can't wait to see what magical culinary creations the chefs bring to the table next year!

PS. the lighting in the room is just horrendous in regards to taking nice food related pictures so please offer me a little forgiveness if these photos aren't up to the usual caliber.
