Weather was cold and windy but we still enjoyed our walking and hiking around this city. Clockwise: Sunrise this morning; Halloween cupcakes; overlooking from Mont Royal; very good looking horse and its passengers.
The well known farmer’s market.
My piece of silky textured delicious strawberry cheesecake found in a tiny bakery during our walk; a grocery store’s colorful window painting.
Breakfast at this lovely hotel, made friends with this gentleman in the picture named Jan, a great story about how he moved from his hometown in Germany to this French speaking city, following his love.
Walked all day around the city, Olympic Stadium, the famous underground mall, Notre Dame and bumped into a private party at night.
We are going on a cruise starts on the 22 of the month from Canada, decided to go several days earlier so that we can explore the city of Montréal & Québec. We flew to Québec then drove to Montréal, checked in a lovely hotel named LOVE, yeah, no kidding.
Pictures clockwise from left: Suites where we stayed at has a great view; A chilling day (to our warm blood taste); LOVE hotel; In suite Espresso; A very tasty local delicacy: kind of ground duck, game mixture found in a supermarket.
A get together with some friends, I made too much food, ended up skipped several dishes and it was still plenty.
One new dish I made – “Pizza Bites”, it was a great hit!
My only but the perfect white dress!
A simple yet delicious breakfast crepe Chinese style, made from all purpose flour, water, chopped green onions, egg, sliced ham (added cheese for Alan’s) and deep fried shallots. I wrapped some crispy lettuce in mine, very satisfying.
Last time of waring this Spring/Summer floral dress of this year, the weather is turning to Fall soon.
Watermelon and pineapple plate for our guests’ visit.
Crepe pan was found here.
One of the popular Chinese dishes – sweet and sour pork (made a chicken version too, equally good), better to use fresh pineapple chunks instead of canned ones for the best result.
This reliable, easy clean deep fryer which I have been using for several years can be found here.
Made this flaky skin style mooncakes quite a few times, this time made the wrap with pork fat and butter, came out lighter and fluffier, the best pastry wrap I made for this type of moon cakes. Truth be told, nothing beats real fat!
