The Weekend Edit Vol. 7

27.7.14


Ah, Sunday, we meet again. I'm out in the country with the fam jam again this weekend, but yesterday's sunshine has been replaced with rain. Boo. Oh well, nothing a giant cup of tea and a good book won't fix. Have I ever mentioned that I love tea? I practically grew up on the stuff, and it's my belief that it's what really makes the world go round. Maybe I'll do some more baking (hint: the above photo is an upcoming post on a wonderful creation).

This past week was a scorcher in Montreal, and so I tried to avoid cooking as much as possible. So I had an impromptu cheese platter from the local market one night (by the pool of course), and tried a local restaurant with a friend another night. And oh em gee was it amazing. Cho's Restaurant, in St-Henri, is like asian fusion meets tapas, and all the dishes we tried had such interesting flavours. We will definitely be back again sooner rather than later, and if you live in Montreal, you need to check it out.

Anywho, here is my round up of things I found on the internet this week:

Oh Joy the Baker, how I wish I could meet you and pick your brain on how you come up with some of these recipes. I really want to try the Raspberry Pomegranate Smoothie with Green Tea Ice Cubes, and the One-Pot French Onion Pasta is crying out for me.

On a less delicious note, the History of Autocorrect is pretty funny.

I also enjoyed reading the 10 reasons you should blog from Meredith.

My inner microbiologist gets the best of me sometimes and I just couldn't resist this article on the 3rd ever documented survivor of the brain-eating amoeba. Seriously, it's a real thing. I kid you not!

And finally, this article on what really is going on behind our instagram photos is amazing. That weird contortion thing you have to do with your arm to get that perfect angle? Yeup, I know all about that.

Hope you all had a lovely weekend!

  2. I so look forward to these Weekend Edits - I learn so much! That Raspberry Pomegranate Smoothie sounds incredible, I'm going to have to add it to my 'to-do' list. The article exposing Instagram photos gave me a good laugh - I am guilty of every single one :p
