The Last Of Toronto and a Lot of Fudge
Okay,so I'm back in Vancouver now,at least for a bit,but after Montreal,I went back to Toronto.I really like Toronto.
but before I yammer on more about Toronto,here's some Almond Butter Chocolate Cranberry Fudge.
Same recipe for the peanut butter fudge I posted last week,but with almond butter,and dried cranberries mixed in,and a chocolate drizzle.AHHHH.
not to betray peanut butter,I made some Peanut Butter Chocolate Swirl Fudge,too.
Speaking of fudge,I brought alex,who messaged me on the ppk after realizing I was in Toronto,some PB fudge when we met up at MoonBean Coffee.
He brought 2 friends,and they were all really great,but I can't remember their names,but I swear to god,she was definitely Swedish or something and even had an accent,but wouldn't admit to it.
Before meeting Alex,I actually went to Ezra's Pound,because I heard it was really good coffee.I know,it was out of my way and I was meeting 2 different people for coffee that day,but still.
their espresso was actually fantastic.and the girl's working behind the counter were really really nice and informative about school stuff and we ended up talking for like 10 or 15 minutes.and the place was really kitschy and fun,but also really well to do seeming.
Y'see,meeting Alex was kind of impromptu,so I already had plans to meet Brandy that day at Tango Palace,so I did,and umm,drank more coffees.
the double espresso was way too long,and it was good,but nothing special.excited that brandy will be here later this week,though.
espresso from Orange Alert.The man tried to convince me that it was the best coffee in the world.It was fine,I mean,but...
I'll save my crazy and disgusting story about going to Jet Fuel that night and spending 2 hours in the bathroom and having to take a taxi home because i'm sure nobody wants to hear it,and instead post about the Target chocolate peanut butter.
how amazing are dried strawberries?!ahhh.
yeah,it's really really good.My uncle mike really liked it.But angie wasn't thrilled that he eats stuff straight from the jar.
It's better than the peanut butter and co dark chocolate,which yeah,is my least favourite,and the molasses in this i think makes it really nice.and probably adds the calcium that the side of the jar says is in it.mmm.calcium.
sarah,who i was staying with in brooklyn got this for me.thanks so much!yr the best.
and this just because i love bananas and a bunch of people on the ppk were posting about how they had never even seen a fair trade banana.
