This Weekend

Weekends just aren’t long enough these days. I blink and they’re gone, especially the warm sunny kinds like we had this weekend.

We started with a really good brunch at Keriwa Cafe near Roncy on Queen. I loved the glass coffee cups and hey, the food was super delicious too. I had the Brown Butter Eggs Benny and Elizabeth had the Picnicham Hash.  I would definitely go back for supper.  (Oh, for more photos, check out Patricia’s blog.)

After a bit of walking and shopping we stopped by Dlish and had some cupcakes – that’s Nutella in the forefront and Salted Caramel in the back.

And not to sound too indulgent, but we did have supper at Bahn Mi Boys after having walked all over the city.  It was my first time trying them out and I loved the steamed buns. 

I bought striped straws from the Paper Place. They’re cute but I’m used to plastic so I’m not sure I’ll be buying paper again – I get weirded out about glue and wet paper… 

Oh and I finally found a black Baggu pouch. It’s currently holding all of my random bits in my purse.

I made a big breakfast on Sunday – much needed after celebrating a friend’s birthday the night before.And I made a tissue paper garland – could have used a nicer colour but it’s pretty limited at the dollar store :/  Either way, I like the way it looks hanging off frames in our bedroom.


How was your weekend?

    I love nutella cupcakes – they are so amazing! Your garland is super cute! I don’t think David would go for something like that in our room though…hehehe. And I know what you mean about paper straws…it’s just not the same. I know it’s better for the environment…but…..

    Have you tried glass straws? I had that at a restaurant once… considering buying one for all the smoothie making/enjoying around here. Hope you have a great week xo

      Haha, I’m surprised Jason let me put it up, then again I think he’s resigned to letting me do whatever to our apartment :)

      Those Nutella cupcakes might make an appearance at the wedding… *wink wink*

      Oh, and I’m too fearful and lazy for glass straws – wouldn’t they break in your mouth?! (I chew on my straws sometimes…) and my smoothies would get all gunky and sticky inside those straws!!!

    You’ve just introduced me to all sorts of Toronto goodies I had yet to discover! Thank you!
