Well, my first block of time in Europe is coming to an end and I'm heading back to Canada for a few weeks on Saturday. Three months sure has gone by quickly, but I'm totally amazed by how much Trev & I got to see and do. We definitely have an "active" vacation-style and I think my feet can vouch for the many, many kilometers I've walked!
I am sad to leave Amsterdam (especially because Trev will still be here while I'm back home) but I'm looking forward to seeing my family, my friends and my cat. I'm also looking forward to spending time in my own kitchen. Oh, how I've missed my KitchenAid mixer! And Edmonton has a lot of great 'foodie' stuff to offer - I love the markets and I have lots of favourite restaurants that I've been missing. Other Edmonton bloggers have been writing about new places that have popped up and I'm looking forward to trying those too - thanks for keeping me in the loop Loosen Your Belt, Only Here for the Food, In My Element, Dine and Write and a few others!
favourite pizza place on Queen's Day. There are a couple things that will make this sandwich really special: use good-quality fresh buffalo mozzarella, if possible, and use a fresh baguette with a nice crispy crust and soft squishy interior. You can stack it up however you like - mozzarella, fresh basil leaves, slices of garden-fresh tomato and a sprinkle of salt & pepper all topped off with a drizzle of olive oil...oh, it's heavenly.
