The Week That Was And Is – March 3rd, 2010

Phew. The Olympics are done. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all about celebrating, but there was just too many options this time around. I’m so used to one (or two at most) channel showing you what is current and important. In Turin for example, you just watched CBC and they selected what you were able to see. Here, there were so many channels, blogs and news updates that it was a little too much. I’m even more excited for Sochi now!

  • Edmonton’s 3rd gathering of foodies is tonight. I’m looking forward to seeing new faces, and getting together with old ones.
  • In coffee news, Tim Horton’s is back in Roll Up the Rim business, while McDonald’s is offering their java for free until March 14th.
  • Tim’s is also offering a free Hash Brown with the purchase of any breakfast sandwich today (5AM – 11AM)
  • Avenue Magazine has listed the 25 must have eat in Edmonton. A mixed bag in my mind, like most lists, but I think what gets me the most is the sushi recommendation.
  • I found a list of the 40 Hong Kong foods we can’t live without, and while I don’t know how authentic or common each dish, you better believe it’s a list I’d like to work on.
  • Some interesting thoughts(and pictures) on the Pizzacone trend happening in NYC. I love the cost/weight ratio as it’s double that of a regular slice..funny how people will pay way more than they should for a gimmick.
  • A sample of Kashi cereal appeared in the mail this week. Labeled as Toasted Berry Crisp, it was good enough to for me to use the coupon and try a bigger box.

  • I don’t normally go through the frozen section at the grocery store, but I had to stop and take a picture when I saw these. I didn’t even know such a thing existed. I can’t be the only one who thinks this looks nothing like a bagel.

  • And finally, picking up Sarah from the airport last night (she was editing Olympic footage for Right to Play at CBC), I found this Tim Horton’s ad perfectly placed. Have a fantastic week everyone.

  1. I too went out and bought the Kashi cereal after tasting the cereal. I think that’s the first time I have ever liked a sample enough to go out and buy it 🙂
