Weekly Photo Challenge: Create

For this week’s photo challenge I chose a creation from my wife’s cooking. Here is a delicious slice of homemade lemon meringue pie. Enjoy!


Ultimate Chafe Burger

A couple posts ago I wrote about the scenic hike I took with a few others from Cape Spear to Maddox Cove on the east coast of Newfoundland. After our hike we went to the nearby town of Petty Harbour to eat at Chafe’s Landing. The restaurant is located in what is the oldest house in the community. It was built in 1878 by Edward Chafe who was a fisherman in Petty Harbour.

The menu is mostly made up of seafood, from clams to mussels to cod, but it also has some burger choices. One of these is the Ultimate Chafe Burger. This burger is your typical burger with a hefty 8 oz. beef patty, bacon, lettuce, tomato, onions and pickles. The “Ultimate” part is in the bun. The chef has done away with the typical bun and has replaced it with two grilled cheese sandwiches. Yes, a burger between two grilled cheese sandwiches.

Lucky for me someone had the nerve, or in this case the “guts,” to order and devour the Ultimate Chafe Burger along with a side of fries.  I was able to get a snapshot of this unique burger. Oh, and he said it was good. I must admit, it does look delicious.

What’s the most unique burger you have ever eaten or seen?

Weekly Photo Challenge: Hands

First of all, sorry for my absence. I was away last week at a conference, but I’m back with two photos for this week’s photo challenge on hands.

Why Homemade Pizza Tastes Better!

Homemade pizza seems to always taste better than delivery or frozen.

I don’t know if it’s the freshly chopped pepperoni.

Or maybe its the carefully kneaded dough with a sprinkling of flour.

It could be the hearty helping of juicy pineapple.

It might even be how evenly distributed every delicious topping is.

It could quite possibly be how hot and tasty it looks coming out of your own oven.

In the end, the reasons mentioned above don’t really matter. The evidence of one whole pizza being devoured in one sitting is enough of a reason for me.




French Toast Tuesday

Start your day off right with a delicious helping of french toast.

Make sure to add tasty berries such as strawberries and blueberries.

Admire the scrumptious delight enough to take a few photos and then devour!!!!

Kicking it Korean Style in Portland

Moving from Korea didn’t necessarily mean we would have to give up our Korean lifestyle. Most major cities in North America have some of the foods and other things you would have in Seoul. While we were in Portland we managed to dive a little into our Korean side.

There are a couple of places in downtown Portland where you can choose from a variety of food trucks to eat from. One of these trucks offers a bit of Korean fusion food. At Boolkogi Taco, they take the sweet tasting bulgogi beef and put it in, you guessed it..tacos.

They were small, but quite tasty. Two tacos and a soft drink was $6. Not bad for lunch.

Another Korean activity we enjoyed while living in Seoul was karaoke. Karaoke in Seoul consists of renting  a private room for you and your friends. Voicebox in Portland also offers private rooms.

Once in the room, the process is pretty simple.

First, you choose a song from one of the song books.

Next, belt it out for your friends listening satisfaction.

It’s nice to know that moving from Seoul doesn’t mean we have to say goodbye to Korean culture for good. Korean culture can be found in most major cities in North America. It was nice to have experienced some of it in Portland.
