I forgot a meal. Soba noodles turned with hoisin sauce, hot pepper jelly and sesame oil. Firm tofu, grilled. Turnips, some our own, boiled.
And at the back there, our own sweet carrots. There’s a reason why they are bred long. Hard to peel when they’re stubby. We’re going to bed our carrots down and overwinter the rest. Never did that before. Wonder how it will go.
And tomorrow, eating in Toronto!

I don’t think there’s a wrong choice possible. But I didn’t have everything. Sandwiches were exceptional. Everyone seemed happy with their focaccia. They have local cheese, make various bread in house, and sweets.
4 kinds of butter tarts, apricot cheesecake, iced pies are mincemeat-like. The square things I forget the same of.
Have to try more of their bread next chance.

Prego sauce is salty sweet water. But if you cook it with bay leaves, fresh pummmelled pepper, annatto, cumin, dried thyme, a crumble of dried parsley, sliced garlic, cayenne, and paprika it gets somewhere.
Add a cooked white swan squash that melts down into it and a large cooked carrot, a whole onion, a dozen okra. Served over noodles because I forgot to cook the rice at the start.

The Superstore bread with its marble slash looked alluring. Terrible, terrible bread. Gummy, bland despite the spice, no crust. So, toast with highly flavoured ingredients: arugula, hot mustard, horseradish, mayo, nutritional yeast and baked sweet potato. Aunt’s pickles on the side. Also, kale chips tossed with chilli powder and hot pepper flakes.

From hands down the best bagel shop in Ottawa. I think the Bagelshop has lost its crown to Kettleman’s. Too many times (4 different days in a year to be specific) I get the scent and taste of mould in the sesame of the Bagelshop and Kettleman’s realizes it can be whole wheat and have sesame seeds. Bagelshop still has the distribution but not quality control anymore.
