Say “aloha” to this food truck

I heard rumour of a food truck traversing the streets of Lethbridge, but didn't think twice about it until I saw this tweet from from @Masson23: Keep on the lookout for Hawaiian Treat's truck, and if you eat there make sure to take some photos or tell us about it in the comments!

Something smells spoiled on the southside

Last evening, I was shopping for veggies for a sweet & sour dish I was making for dinner. What I found was indeed sour…spoiled even. Disgusting. And this isn't the first time I've seen something like this at this particular store, which I won't name…but it does start with a "S" and end with a …

Tell me what you eat, I’ll tell you who you are.

Lethbridge Sausage Party!

If you want something done right, you have to do it yourself. That’s what I always say.

Last night, Scott (a.k.a. Heavy P) hosted an Oktoberfest party. We sat down to a feast of Oktoberfest sausage, sauerkraut, perogies and my special bacon+onion gnocchi dish, all accompanied by a wide assortment of fine European beers and great Bavarian music! The aroma in the household was very manly, to say the least.
