Alcohol and Chocolate Free September

Hello everyone!

Just a quick post today and the first of many more. I have seemed to get out of my slump from the past two years and have been trying new things.

On the fitness side of things the summer has been very non-structured and I have been eating in moderation a little bit of everything,

My goal for September is going to be no alcohol or chocolate.

The first is going to be difficult as I have a German beer stein that I have been wanting to christen on the first day of Oktoberfest on September 21st but I will delay it as Oktoberfest is still going on in Munich until October 6th.


Jade City

There are menu items to avoid, but the rest of the food is very fresh and they have a good take out lunch buffet.

Paramount Theatre Doughnuts

Here are some pictures that I took Saturday night, except for the clouds picture from Friday morning. There are pictures of the Paramount Theatre and Doughnuts.


Weird food requests

This past week I went to the Saint John Ale House and ordered one of the most unusual things I have ever eaten. Mozza Sticks with Chocolate Sauce. You would be hard pressed to find anyone willing to place an item like this on their menu but in typical Ale House style it was one of the best drinking treats you could try.

To have the punch of the bitterness of the dark chocolate sauce whack all your taste buds to attention, then to fade off to the warm salty creamy cheese. The cheese just hugs the flavor and is soothing like a corking mother after the attacking bullies stole your lunch money. Have a great week.


Haddock and Potato Dinner

Haddock and Potato Dinner

Haddock and Potato Dinner

I thought I would take this opportunity since I have not posted anything lately to post a food success story. Unlike the horror stories of the past. The potatoes are my typical mashed potatoes. The was partly derived from my sisters variant.

2 Yukon Gold Potatoes
1/4 cup 2% Partly Skimmed Milk
1 Tbsp. Margarine
Several dashes of Curry Powder
Freshly Ground Peppercorn Medley

The fish is Highliner frozen Haddock but any fish could work. The fish is then coated and rubbed in Honey Mustard, fresh lime juice, canola oil, salt, and fresh ground peppercorn medley.

Then finished off siding the plate with canned cream corn and Sweet Pickles (with cauliflower.)


Breakfast at Cora’s

Waffle served with Fresh Strawberries.
