Raised Vegetable Garden

It's been a joy and truly a labor of love piecing our raised bed garden together. We learnt a lot from our last/first attempt at gardening and this time we were better planned.

The Best Pizza Dough

We got a bit tired of our whole wheat pizza dough I think we got too accustomed to it and decided it needed some tweaking.

US Road trips

We've made a few road trips around the US. There's a lot to see here and a lot of distance to cover. Here are some of our trips on the east coast.

Panama

Panama's carnival celebration in Panama City are supposed to be the second largest in the world. Enjoyed this big party with fantastic street food, dozens of stages and loud music blaring at every corner.

Canada

Canada has some of the most beautiful sceneries and landscapes. I hope to drive across to the West coast some day but till then here's a glimpse of Toronto and beyond.

Fast Food Lasagna - Epic Meal Time

This has got to be one of the craziest dinners ever! Eight guys set out to devour ~ 60,000 calories!

Inspired by Fast Food Lasagna from Epic Meal Time, we used Twelve BACONATORS! Twelve Big Macs! Eight packs of bacon! Onion Rings, Big Mac sauce and Jack Daniels meat sauce.

The Flower Garden

It's year two for our flower garden. The severe winter caused considerable damage to our Swan lake and Don Juan climbing roses. I guess we didn't cover them adequately as they had reached 8 feet high. This year we'd have to devise a better way to protect them. A few new additions as well.

Home-made Organic Strawberry Jam

We made some delicious strawberry jam today. Picked up 6 quarts of strawberries from one of the local organic farms. They were so delicious it was hard not to finish them while cleaning. Our last attempt turned out great but this time it was even better!
