Mmm…Lemon Meringue Pie

I can’t think of a better way, to end an evening, then with a wonderfully tart piece of lemon meringue pie…omnomnom. I can’t bring myself to have at it, and make my own from scratch, because I’m still a bit intimidated by the meringue. So, this was yet another store bought pie, but was every bit as good as it always is – whenever we buy it 🙂

Pho Hung Vietnamese Restaurant – October 28, 2012

My hubby and I have always wanted to check this place out, every time we’ve driven by it. It always looks busy, so we thought they’re probably pretty good. They had the usual fare you find at a Vietnamese restaurant, which were all decently priced.

We decided to try their Pho, and we ordered their house special, that most Pho places have. It came with the usual rare beef, tendon, tripe and beef balls. As compared to the Pho 99 place we usually go to, this place made their Pho with a lot more onion and cilantro, which I LOVED. We also ordered fresh shrimp spring rolls, which came with peanut dipping sauce, that seemed thicker then the usual smooth dipping sauce. Which made me think they may make it in-house. All in all, our meal was very flavourful and as always, filled us up. We’ll definitely go back the next time we’re over that way and in the mood for Pho. If you’re ever in the area, and want good Pho, give them a try!!

Skinny Toasted Marshmallow Latte

Looks like Second Cup is already bringing out their holiday latte flavours!! This year there’s Eggnog and Toasted Marshmallow.  At the location we were at, they had already gotten the Toasted Marshmallow syrup in, so my hubby and I decided to give it a try. I have to say I loved it!! It tasted very much like a toasted marshmallow, which I thought, could be a flavour that wouldn’t work. But it did, and I’d totally recommend you giving it a try, if your local Second Cup has the syrup already!!

More Halloween Caramel Apple Cuteness!!

We were walking by Rocky Mountain Chocolate Co. yesterday, and they had some new editions to their Halloween collection. The cutest ghost caramel apples I’ve ever seen!! Such a great idea to use marshmallows along the bottom to show the ripple of the ghosts. Then of course the cute little ghost candies placed on a chocolate caramel apple – gotta love Halloween!!

Truly Thai Cuisine – Saturday October 20, 2012

After an evening at the Vaughan Mills Outlet Mall, my hubby and I were starving, so we went across the way to find somewhere to eat. We ended up at Truly Thai Cuisine. There was one other table occupied there, and we weren’t sure if this would be a good place to eat. Then again, it was late and their prices weren’t too bad, so we gave them a try.

My hubby and I both had the Chicken Lemongrass Soup, and we shared the Thai Spring Rolls, as a starter. The lemongrass soup was really good, flavourful and really hit the spot, on a cool rainy evening. The spring rolls didn’t disappoint. They were perfectly fried and crispy – just the way we like them.

We also ordered, Pad Thai and Thai Vegetable Green Curry (which we were introduced to by my sisters and brother-in-law) as our mains, to share. We ended up adding Coconut Rice, because it goes so well with the curry. The Pad Thai was perfectly cooked, and the Green Curry was creamy and SPICY!! It was awesome!! There was more then enough food for the two of us, and we left with full bellies. This is a place, we’ll definitely go back to again 🙂 If you’re in the area, and in the mood for Thai food, I would recommend you check them out, as I don’t think you’ll be disappointed!!
