Well happy days folks, it’s Monday again!

Costco was unusually calm when I arrived this morning, of course I wasn’t present for the opening I think I got there closer to 11:30??? (though apparently there were close to 500 people waiting to get in today! So I’m kinda glad I missed that) It was pretty relaxing, at least as far as Costco goes. Strolling relatively empty aisles searching for sales, good time for the mind to wander. I do enjoy my quiet time folks!

So do the cats for that matter.

What isn’t quiet is the ventilation fan above our stove!!!

It. Is. Noisy!!! But it doesn’t stop us from making delicious meals!

We did Indian again Saturday and Sunday because, well it’s delicious! Curried potatoes with pickling spice and Butter chicken with salad and  onions, cucumber in a vinegar type sauce.

It was absolutely delicious!!!

Using whole spices and toasting them first really, really makes a difference. No doubt about it! (if you haven’t tried it I highly recommend it!)

This recipe (yes I generally followed this recipe with a few changes, these were taken from the book My Indian Kitchen by Swayampurna Mishra) has cinnamon sticks, cardamom pods, whole corriander, I added whole cumin and fenugreek leaves. (which are amazing!)

Just toast them in a pan for 15 seconds or so (or until fragrant) and then either grind them in your mortar and pestle or your dedicated spice grinder (not the coffee grinder for the love of god!!!)

My city is pretty good about having a wide variety of spices available to me, but one thing we’re really missing here is an Indian market. I can’t find asefatida anywhere here!!! (I was able to find Kashmiri red chili powder though) I can order it from but the shipping is $40… $40!!!!! That’s just nuts…. So I guess I’ll have to wait until our next trip to Barrie and make a stop in Toronto and see what I can dig up. That is unless any of you have suggestions for me???

Ok, Ok, Ok…. I’ve gone on enough for the moment, let’s look at some of the sales happening right now, shall we?

Kirkland signature garbage bags 100pk -3.00 @ 9.99

Bench T-shirt men’s sizes S – XXL -4.00 @ 9.99

Organica enhanced collagen protein powder -10.00 @ 39.99 (bought this today, so I’ll let you know how it does!)

Sketchers 2-pk T-shirt girls size 6 – 14/16 -3.00 @ 9.99

Sunlight laundry detergent 200 wash -4.00 @ 13.89

No sales on T.P. this week huh? not surprising… We did finally get one of these though!

Maybe a week or three too late perhaps??? Oh well, better late than never I guess…

With all the craziness going on these days folks, don’t forget that sanity is maybe just a walk in the woods away!

(hmmm, the bottom right one is a little blurry, but they’re fast little dudes so catching the focus button just right was hard!)

We took a nice walk in the conservation area on Sunday to see the chickadees and nuthatches and feed ’em! It took a few minutes of us all standing still with hands full of seeds, but then they started having a party, or at least a feeding frenzy! It’s such a funny feeling when they land on your hands with their little claws (talons??? sounds too aggressive for these ‘lil guys) And they don’t weigh anything! All you feel is their little clamps clutching your finger and their little squeeky voices as they pick out their lunch and then buzz off to a nearby branch for the feast!

It’s a great way to clear your mind, take a breath, see some cute little birds & forget about whats happening for a few minutes. I highly recommend it!

I’ve avoided talking about the current situation for most of this post because I want this to be a positive part of your day.

I know that it will affect our communities and our way of life, and I honestly don’t want to think about that right now (as I’m sure most of you don’t) So think of this as a (except for this reference) Covid-19 free post.

As I said on Friday, I’m not going anywhere! We are family here and we’ll get through this together! (Jan in Waterdown are you coming home yet? or staying in your tropical haven???)

We’re going to be OK! I promise you that!

Good night folks. Stay safe, sanitized and healthy!

  1. Thank you so much, seeing this after our mad dash into Costco last night for Bread and Milk…sigh.

    I see another visit required.

    Stay safe and healthy

  2. Thank You so so much for venturing out at this difficult time to give us what we so look forward to every week …..PLEASE stay Safe & Thank You again from the bottom of my ♥️

  3. Your blog helps me a lot to find sales for the week which determines my visit to costco.Thank you so much

    Here are some places where you can get indian spices like kashmiri chilli powder

    Royal Kerala Foods
    1840 Ellesmere Rd,Scarborough,Ontario

    Any srilankan grocery store will help as well like SPICE LAND and ERAA supermarket

    • That’s great David! I’ll absolutely check them out when I can make it to Toronto. Spice Land huh??? sounds like my kind of place to shop!

  4. I think that you need an extra big thank you this week!!!!! I look forward to this every week !!!! I adore your cats!!!! Be safe and stay healthy!!!! Thank you from Montreal!!!

    • Thank you Mindy, I appreciate the support and glad you enjoy reading. My cats also love the extra attention so keep it coming! You stay safe and healthy as well!

  5. Love the kitties, love the dinner and cooking suggestions, love the peaceful nature shots and love your efforts at this time and always.

  6. Yup, I’m home! Thankfully we were able to fly back into Hamilton from Cancun and avoid the craziness in T.O. We’re now self quarantined despite the fact that Mexico isn’t a hotspot for the virus. But after being in a sardine packed plane and a crowded international airport, we decided it was the right thing to do. After doing a mountain of laundry, ironing it (welllll some of it) will be the highlight of my day!
    Thanks for the shout out and for helping with my Costco withdrawal pangs! Lol

    • Jan I’m glad you made it home safe and sound! You are, yes, best to self quarantine for those 14 days… You’ll need to make use of the Costco delivery, or hopefully someone you know or someone in the neighborhood can get a list and do your shopping for you??? There’s all kinds of facebook groups popping up with people offering to do peoples shopping for them… Maybe get them to stock up on some wine for you!!! Welcome home!

  7. Thank you…. your suggestions are all good ones but I must confess that I go to Costco not only for supplies but also the experience and joy of “the hunt”. I know…. weird eh? Lol. A neighbour, friends and family have all offered their help so we should be fine along with an already well stocked wine cellar 😁. And btw, I enjoyed a number of yummy añjeo tequilas at an impromptu tasting set up for me by a couple of bartenders one night. It was a lot of fun!

    • Amazing!!! I assume you took pictures of some of this Tequila for me Jan??? Glad you’ve got a stocked up wine cellar, and of course having a great group of friends, family and neighbors is great!
      I totally get going to Costco for hunt, why do you think I’m there 2-3 times a week? I love Costco!

  8. Thanks for all your hard work amidst these crazy times! I was anxiously waiting to see if you’d do a Blog post this week and seeing that email just brought some normalcy to my life and I breathed a sigh of relief 😌

    • Nana you can bet your bottom dollar that until I’m ordered to not go anywhere I will be doing this! (even if I have to stay home, I’ll be here for you!) Every week, all the cat pictures, all the food!

  9. Afternoon! Started working from home today after Queen’s pretty much shut down, going a little stir-crazy already! Took a few long walks with my dog today which helped!
    Will have to head to Lemoin point soon now that the ice has all but gone. Were the paths pretty clear when you went?
    Love taking seeds for the chickadees, have never had a nuthatch land though, lucky guy!
    Looking at your food, made my hungry looking at it! Good luck tracking down your spices.

    Thanks to Josee M for posting about the Cityline review on the Gotham pans, never would have considered them, but picked up a set and I am very impressed!

    Have to head to Costco this week, maybe tomorrow, for a few things.
    Keep healthy!!

    • I think it’s great that you can work from home! We actually went to the Cateraqui Woods conservation area as it’s only a few minutes away from our house, I don’t think I’ve been to Lemoin point before though! shame on me! Costco has started limiting the amount of people in the store to 50 at a time, so make sure you plan accordingly. I”m going to do a post about that tonight to let everyone know. Stay happy and healthy!

      • 50 at a time?!?! Oh my, really hope they don’t close!!

        Cat woods conservation, haven’t been there in years!! Thanks for the reminder, will check it out too!
