Fake KFC and home cooked foods

Hello everyone!

My boyfriend came to visit and I decided to treat him out to KFC and Pizza Hut. It was a long walk in the dark. There is not a lot of street lights up here so it is kinda scary to walk during the night. I made it to the KFC/Pizza Hut joint and ordered a 10 piece chicken dinner which came with large fries, gravy and a side dish of large potato salad. I also ordered a family size (looks like a large size in the photo) vegetarian pizza which was pretty disappointing. Everything was expensive after seeing the quality and quanitity of food that is provided and their asking price. I would rarely eat out at this fast food joint. The food did not taste that great either.

LOL! My co-worker, Natasha was right! This was the actually bucket the chicken pieces came in. I guess someone wanted to save money by not using the corperate bucket with the official KFC logo on it.

John and I had made poutine but I have added too much black bean sauce to the gravy and ended up tasting kinda like Jja Jja Mein sauce. Oops!

The brownies were so good! :D

Ecolodge

Hello again,

This is my third time blogging today. OMG.... I really need to find some other hobbies other than things related to food or else I'm going to become pretty chubby.

Anyways, I went to the Ecolodge with the young people. The food was pretty good! Better than the Gunner's Grill.

I have ordered the Ringer's burger as the people recommended. The burger meat was bison. It was described by the people as lean meat. When I took my first bite, it had the texture of ground beef and looked just like ground beef but more pale. The taste of the burger had the after taste of a mild lamb. Sorry but this is the best I can describe the bison burger. It was pretty good. I also would recommend it to people who are burger-lovers and are open-minded to try it.

I took photos or pretty much everyone's meal.



Cranberry tea was pretty good. I don't drink tea/coffee but this was pretty good.

The cranberries were pretty mushy but it was alright.

Sorry guys, I uploaded an upside down photo. A platter of chips and toasted pita breads with creamy spinach dip, mango salsa (mint was used) and I can't remember what the last dip was...

Cesar Salad

House Salad with Almond Extract

Ribs, fries and coleslaw

Steve's Philly Steak and fries looked sooo good, OMG!

Natasha's Maple Salmon Steak



My Bison Burger!!!!

I ended up not eating the buns. They were soo thick!

They had cool chairs so I took a shot. Its real wood that isn't entirely processed. I thought that was creative.

Ecolodge's dining room


I rate this place 4.0/5.0 based on the types of food in this area. Unfortunately, the food and other restaurants are not that great up here. This place lost points on superficial things like the washroom was only halfway lit up, and some dishes appeared overly cooked. Unfortunately, you need to make reservations in advance to eat here.

However....
Environment had a strong theme of nature going on and it was clean
Customer Service was excellent
Food tasted good, quantity & quality was fair just need to work on presentation
Price? Everything is expensive here. I would say bring $30 or over.








Rosemary Potato Wedges

Hello Everyone,

I made Rosemary Potato Wedges last week. This was my first time cooking with rosemary and it was kick ass! I love fragrant foods and this was delightful eating it! This dish had made me think about making a very herby potato wedges in future.

I just used fresh rosemary, olive oil and a bit of salt.
