Today my family and I went to The Works for their 13th anniversary special. There were no tricks or strings attached, their sale was $5 for a burger and side. Just as advertised. We ended up waiting about 50 minutes for a table. The line wasn’t too long. It curved from the hostess booth, down the hallway and out onto the sidewalk a bit. Though it was a little chilly, we only had to wait … Continue reading

Walmart Shoes


I love shoes from Walmart. They are always cheap, comfortable and always changing. Every time I go there they have new shoes to try on, and I almost always find a pair I like. Of course, I have way too many shoes, but I like to tell myself that every pair serves its own purpose. I’ve gotten some of my favourite shoes over the years from Walmart. Today I found a nice lace pair of … Continue reading

The Works Anniversary Sale


Great news! The Works is having an amazing sale. The Works is a burger joint that started 13 years ago and since then, locations have been popping up across Ontario as they expand their empire.

I usually make pretty boring choices. My favourite is the Man-o-war, … Continue reading

I decided that I definitely wanted to get one when … Continue reading

It was Thanksgiving, or Christmas maybe, and it was our usual holiday luncheon, with free food for all the employees. There were all the traditional holiday foods: turkey, gravy, mashed potatoes, pies, etc. and sushi (not so traditional). … Continue reading



Last night was ICCIT Gala, the dinner dance that my program hosts at the end of every year. This year, it wasn’t only a celebration of being done classes, but a final party to celebrate the end of an era. All of my friends and I are graduating this year, so this was sort of a final hurrah. It’s the last time we’ll see a lot of the people there, since we’ll never be in … Continue reading

Culinary School Treats


Have I mentioned that my sister goes to culinary school now? What does this mean for me? Well, other than getting woken up at 5am as she scurries out the door to catch the train, it also means she is ALWAYS bringing home food. One day its cake, the next day its chicken. Her latest treat was dark chocolate. I don’t even know what some of them were. There was something filled with a mushy … Continue reading
