There are so many local foods that excite me in Guelph. Soon it’s time to harvest local Fiddleheads! Royal City Brewing Company released a perfectly lovely Berlinner Weisse this week – “No Sleep Till Berlin” – and of course the Farmers Market in Guelph gets me and my Coco up every Saturday morning at 6:30 to discover what’s new.
But as i prepare for summer i start thinking about Caesars – Canada’s version of ‘Merica’s Bloody Mary.
Dixon’s Distillery of Guelph makes a clever little vodka designed for the Caesar – their “Flaming Caesar Vodka”. With hints of celery salt, chili heat, and garlic – it makes a great Caesar. But hey, a picture says a thousand words – so here are 3.000 more that are easy to read.
I really have lived my life under the assumption had I could drive a Jeep to South America – our only friendly neighbour to the south.
I’m wrong – according to google. Look here!
Google maps tells me it’s not possible. And those google people are presumably smarter than me.
Tonight I’m drinking a lovely wine from Argentina, and I sadly am finding out that I can’t drive there to get more. Nevermind the fact that I may be 189 hrs of driving – an estimation I made, but honestly I’m so thrown off by google right now that I’m unquestionably questioning anything that i thought i knew.
I can’t even be certain that I purchased this lovely Trapiche Syrah at the LCBO for under $9 because that seems as crazy as a Spanish speaking border guard telling me i can’t get to Argentina from here [or an ‘merican speaking border guard for that matter].
