Lethbian Love’s guide to surviving the COVID-19 pandemic, part 2

Skip skipping the dishes, and eat your best life at home! Okay, maybe that doesn’t make much sense but many folks that I know are (re)discovering their love for cooking and baking during these times of social distancing.

Liam maintains a Blogspot that journals his adventures in our local culinary sphere, such as learning to make meat pies at the Urban Grocer, understanding the tools-of-the-trade …

Asian Supermarket’s “Food Story”

One of my favourite grocery stores in the city is the family-owned Asian Supermarket. Patricia sent a shot-out on Twitter about a unique community-oriented idea they came up with: Food Story! What would it be like, if all the little goodies, that we create in our lovely kitchen, could be shared with others? What if …

Cinco de Mayo?

It’s official, Lethbridge is in it’s sixth month of winter. Ironic, isn’t it? That “Cinco de Mayo” elicits ideas of  warm weather and celebration. There’s one beverage that, if the weather here was ever pleasant, I could see myself enjoying outside on a patio today: the daiquiri. Did you know that it was Ernest Hemingway’s …

A fine beer may be judged with only one sip, but it’s better to be thoroughly sure

My liver can attest, I’m a connoisseur of beers. Imagine my delight when I discovered that Lethbridge has its own beer festival with over 100 types of domestic and international brews, probably including Old Style Pilsner, one of my dear favourites (among MANY others).   Tickets are only $10 in advance, available at The Wine …

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.

UofL Campus Community Garden Dig

This weekend the members of the Roots Garden Club and many others from the UofL community got together to dig the first ever on-campus garden. A communal Campus Community Garden, it boasts 9 private plots available on a first come, first serve basis and a rather sizable communal plot which will have up to 30 people tending the delicious vegetable and plant life that will soon be in this ground. To sign up for the garden individual plot or communal plot, or just to stay in the loop and be involved and participate in this amazing venture, follow this link. Although I missed most of the fun (re: putting in stakes, fences and digging lots…) I did get out there today to see the finished product and help with some clean up.

Many people have worked very hard on getting this project underway in the past two years and it is great to see something this positive bringing so many groups from around the campus together. Now, a campus wide composting project perhaps?
