June 2012


Yes, it was a few hours of pandemonium :P

But, now I have food ready to go for almost the entire week.

That’s the joy of batch cooking :)

On the menu this week: tacos with guacamole for lunch and leg of lamb roast with sautéed cabbage for dinner.




Do you ever peek into other people’s shopping carts, or gawk at their purchases at the check-out? Do you then try to figure out what kind of diet, if any, they’re on? Followed perhaps by a quick glance at the shopper to evaluate the success of that diet?

Somehow I doubt I’m the only one ;) In which case, you might find my weekly shopping loot interesting.

Notes: Missing is leg of lamb previously purchased from Save-On Foods.

This week included sweet potato cakes with poached eggs, frittata bites with chard, sausage and feta, and beef brisket with rhubarb.

Vancouver is no exception to the food truck craze sweeping across North America, and the most recent addition to its food truck fleet is Vij’s Railway Express. As can be seen by the huge lines, Vancouver is very excited for one of its favourite chefs to cruise over to the downtown core.

Weekdays during lunch, the truck is parked at 1075 W. Georgia St. Also, during summer weekends, it can be found at False Creek’s Fisherman’s Wharf, between Go Fish and the Roaming Dragon. And there have been rumours of dinner hours coming soon. Be sure to check @VijsRailway for location/schedule updates. Vij has been there to greet the crowds, and of course, hand out cassava fries.
