alberta bound

we are coming home VERY SOON.  although we are pretty busy in ontario, i have been extremely homesick lately, and so we have made a list of things we MUST have and do while we're back in calgary.

and here they are...

1. ginger beef. did you know it was INVENTED in calgary? and it cannot be found anywhere in ontario... we miss you, deep fried deliciousness...


2. sushi at the globe fish. sushi is just not the same here...i crave the mango sushi daily...


3. vietnamese food. we will start at pho mai with #19, and top it off with a bubble tea and sub at thai tai. i don't care what they say, it just tastes better in calgary.


4. tubby dog's peanut butter and jelly hot dog. don't say it's gross until you've tried it yourself. it will change your life...

 

5. we've saved the best for last, and even if i don't get any 1 through 4's, as long as we have a bit of this, we'll be the happiest ever...








if you notice, all except #5 are food. we were told that toronto's multiculturism was going to blow us away with all the different foods available here. however...we have yet to find a suitable vietnamese place, any gourmet hot dog joint, and although the sushi is not bad, nothing beats mango sushi at globe...and i'm pretty sure i made ty drive me to hundreds of chinese restaurants and call a million more before we gave up on ever finding our favourite, ginger beef...

we love you calgary. we'll see you soon...

b&w photos taken with the ikoflex at christmas. more to come...
the rest are iphone specials sent to me via text message (thank you forever to my sisters, brothers, fathers and mothers) or taken with my own phone. i love to look at these but i would much rather BE THERE to see all my nieces and nephews...

r&y

I totally agree with you on the ginger beef. I was so choked the first time I went to meet J's family and we had Chinese food and there was no ginger beef.
