Last night was Earth Hour, and as it seems with every year when that event rolls around, it usually means hanging out and dinner, with some of our past clients, and now great friends, Michelle & Kelsey, and their dog Hawksley.
This year we headed over to Michelle & Kelsey’s place for a wonderful dinner prepared by Michelle, consisting of a beautiful salad covered in bacon (more on that in a bit,) roasted chicken, roasted veggies, and with an awesome chocolate fondue chaser for dessert.
Dinner was absolutely wonderful, with Hawksley always watching and waiting for someone to slip up and drop some food… needless to say he wasn’t really in luck, so he reverted to plan b… Michelle & Kelsey have actually trained Hawksley to ring a bell on the backdoor when he wants outside, and then the really awesome part, they trained him to actually slam the solid wood door shut when he comes back in, and of course this always leads to a reward.
Now to the bacon on the salad… It was simply AMAZING, and we had to know where it was from. Michelle informed us, that she picked it up at La Grotta, a great Mediterranean food / wine market here in Winnipeg. This morning we were over to pick some up as soon as they opened, and also found some lovely fresh Ciabatta to make a great BLT for lunch today. If you’re looking for some amazing bacon, and other goodies, head on over for some fresh goodness. And for those bacon lovers out there, it is the “Double Smoked” bacon.
Hope everyone is having an amazing and relaxing weekend!
