Thanks given

While you’re probably gearing up for American Thanksgiving, I’ve already had a Canadian Thanksgive’r.
Luckily, I was back home in Toronto in October with so many of my precious babies so I had much to be thankful for.

Little lady bird, Emma.

We wanted brunch and beautiful men. Where else would you go but the gaybourhood?
The food and the patio view at Fire on the East Side was heavenly.

Though, I think these two were already gonna lead me straight there. Trudy Patootie and Candy baby.

Smoked salmon benedict. They serve you banana bread to begin with, and what makes this benedict so scrumptious is the corn bread it’s lain on instead of a crusty English muffin.

Stuffed french toast with cheescake and berry filling. Sausages on the side.

Took the ferry to see the island and show these one and a half American girls what Canada looks like by the water.

This is how we rock it in the T-dot.

Went exploring and sighing at all the charming little island cottages and hiked on a nature trail. Much needed break from all the chaos.

Made us tired and hungwee. Which was juuuuuust right cuz it was my annual Orphans’ Thanksgiving Dinner night!!

Passing on the tradition of turkey dinner at Sneaky Dee’s that I’ve had for the past 5 Thanksgivings!

At first they thought it was just some bullshit grimey dive bar until they finally tasted the meat, tater, and gravy feast.

Way better than their aunt so-n-so’s, I hear.

Also, snickers pie.

So yea, thank you, thank you, and thank you, too!

L’Avenue du Plateau

L’Avenue down the street from our Montreal apartment had a serious line outside every single day for brunch. So naturally, we had to join the sheep herd and try it for ourselves.

Record label menus.

Reunited! M&Ms, Marissa and Maria.

Another favourite ‘M’ of mine, Mimosa.

This is what I ordered. The mushroom thing. I can’t remember what’s it’s actually called on the menu because my memory in French isn’t as good as it is in regular human.

Everything was in huge portions! And my god. The fruit skewers… so good! The taters, not so good. Bit too heavily greased and seasoned. Eat those last if you have the room.

L’Arc-en-ciel. Smoked salmon benny.

Wisconsin, Paris, and DC in the house! Kelly, Christophe, and Reyhan.

The Mediterranean. I ordered this the next time – usually comes with feta. Eggs, tomato, spinach, and cheese. So fresh ‘n so good. Line up is well worth it!

Bottega Louie Booster

Do you have a happy place? Y’know like whenever you feel sad, and you enter your favourite space and instantly you feel a little better? Well, it was the afternoon after Jack Layton’s state funeral. Puffy eyed and and in need of a pick-me-up, I headed for brunch at my happy place in LA, Bottega Louie.

Even though it’s in downtown Los Angeles and not Manhattan, it’s exactly the kind of place I had imagined Carrie Bradshaw and the girls would brunch at when I was an early teen.

Everything is so whimsically beautiful! Le sigh*

Ms. Etienne made it to America!

Orange eyeliner, as much orange in my outfit as possible in memory of JACK!!

Pineapple mimosa.

Pink salt! How darling.

Smoked salmon eggs benedict, of course.

Tony is smiling even bigger than when we had brunch at Home. See what I mean about my happy place?

Will post our desserts tomorrow. Come back, or subscribe to my feed!

Velocirapture

Here we are, waiting for the rapture. What started as a sunny Saturday in Manhattan, started getting all kinds of scary. Luckily, we heathens managed to avoid all the rain and wrathiness with our perfect timing.

Tony Leung swagger

Teeny-tiny salt and pepper shakers

Waiting for our brunch to be served at Paprika in East Village.

Eggs Benny for me, of course.

Rocky got the only frothy mimosa. Foammmmmmmm.

Emma and Joy.

Parallel to the dance parade on St. Mark’s. Hella Bolivian dancers.

Look it’s me as a hat.

Figured if we were gonna die, might as well die happy.

AT SHAKE SHACK! Shack stack burger. Love love love me the portabello and cheese deep fried oh yes oh yum die die die.

Do you know how to poach an egg?
You break it.
Expel into a vat of boiling water. Right in the eye of its cyclonic swirl.
Watch the yolk envelop within a weaker skin.
