Oh goodness, I am happy to be posting again. I missed it, although there was hardly anything (interesting) to post about my life during my absence. But here we are, photos (finally!) from an inaugural visit to Smoke's Poutinerie on Monday night. After a busy week and an even busier weekend, it felt long over-due, but also especially sweet to spend an evening with Mike.
I'm not sure the extent to which Poutine (a Québécois masterpiece) has captured the heart of the American general public, so allow me to explain: Fries topped with gravy and cheese curds. Smoke Poutinerie actually also offers a variety of other toppings, but Mike and I favour the traditional poutine. It may sound gross, but the first half of that poutine is pure magic (after the halfway point, you start becoming uncomfortably full and consequently a bit gross).
After our poutine in the park, we took a stroll to burn off some of the calories (if you're interested in a blow by blow account of how bad poutine is for you, look here. I sort of wish I hadn't). The Poutinerie is located in an area of the city that I don't spend enough time in. It's an artsy neighbourhood filled with cute shops and restaurants and features beautiful turn of the century architecture. As it turns out, our wedding venue is located in this area, which makes us feel sort of hip!
Well look at that, I don't post for a week and then I end up writing more than I have in the last ten posts combined!
