Here's the pizza we made this afternoon. Just cheap store-bought crust, but still good. I chopped up the bacon & onions and slowly fried them together till they were all nice and golden, then put them on the crust between two layers of cheese. It was really yummy:
I found some interesting blog posts about D&D and Christianity here and here. It's especially nice to read these as several people have recently attempted to lecture me about d&d, which I started playing for the first time recently since my roommate is a dm.
Here's the roasted beet salad, it's a pity you don't see more of the dressing it had a beautiful red/orange color that when mixed with the beets makes pretty designs of pink and orange on your plate. I also made some fried eggplant. I can't get enough of it!:
Here's the BLT salad. I over-toasted my homemade croutons a bit though, I'll make sure not to next time, they were still good though:
And here's some fresh raspberries I bought at the Jean-Talon market yesterday, they're so good!:
I also bought pastries at Le Ryad, delicious broccoli (I think? there was only a label above the jar in the fridge, none on the container, but it's green) and star anise soup, artichokes, mangoes and some more black & white pepper from the Epices de Cru store Olives et Epices.
I'm gonna go have some bacon & eggs for breakfast with mango and raspberries for dessert :)
Today there's no d&d cause Richard and Elias had something else to do so I'm hoping to reinstall the air conditioner in the bedroom window, vacuum, take out garbage, do laundry, buy a pepper grinder, and read some more Gunnm. Steph ordered the series in french not long ago, a pic of the french cover is here.
Yesterday me and Steph decided to cook a roast. He put it in the oven at around noon. Seeing as the bottom element wasn't working, he set the dial for the top element and put the temperature at around 300 to leave it till 9pm or so. At around 5pm we checked and the stove hadn't even started heating yet. Big sigh. So we put the dial to bake and set it at 350. At 9:30pm we checked it and the liquid in the pot was hot, but I could still hold my finger in it, and the roast was still raw. Bigger sigh. We put the roast back in at 400 (which was in reality only 300 or so since the bottom element wasn't working). At midnight we checked: smelled good but needed more cooking, so back into the oven it went for the night. Snore. At 5am I checked and the onions still seemed crunchy, it was barely even bubbling so I turned it up to 450. At 10am this morning this is what I took out of the oven:
Here's the breakfast plate I made myself this morning with the mashed potatoes and carrots I made last night in anticipation of a roast dinner:
And yes that is some bacon with the onions. My original idea was to wrap the roast in bacon since it had no fat on it, but we ended up marinating it and cooking it in the liquid, and when I brought up my bacon idea Steph said "well throw it in anyways" hehe. So I can now say I've had stewed bacon lol. It's actually good, the onions are delicious too.
Last Sunday we went to the Hotpot for BBQ after the Tams. It's the first time I have BBQ at the table like that, it was really yummy. Next time I go to the Hotpot I wanna get the charcoal hotpot though. The charcoal smells sooo good!
Clockwise from left is Chris, Richard, Elias, Carlo and Scott:
That was also the first time I saw Elias shaved. Everyone kept saying how he looked so much younger without his beard:
Last Sat. night we went to the Old Port to watch the fireworks and on the way back we came across a store with the name "Eternal Christmas" lol:
Here's an amazing poutine my roommate Christelle made for me today, it was more like a soup of sauce with fries and lots of cheese lol. It was sooo good :D
