Bark Thins Dark Chocolate Coconut with Almonds Snacking Chocolate

The name is a mouthful isn’t it?? But a flavourful one at that!! My hubby and I really enjoyed these. We love almost anything covered in dark chocolate though…especially coconut and almond!! They’re a great light snack when you’re craving chocolate but don’t want a lot. We’ll be enjoying these again sometime for sure. Grab a bag yourselves and see for yourselves…

Bon Appetit Everyone!! 🙂 

Peppermint Coconut Cocoa Balls

We made these last Christmas, and we loved them!! Last year, we made them right around Christmas, but this year, we didn’t get to making them until this past Monday. The original recipe calls for rum, but we’re not a fan, so I tried peppermint and they’re so yummy!! This recipe is on our list of holiday recipes, and if you give it a try, it may just get onto yours too 🙂

Crock Pot Butternut Squash & Chickpea Coconut Curry

I was looking up some more vegetarian recipes, when I came across this one. It sounded yummy, and simple to make. Not to mention it’s made in the Crock Pot…SOLD!! It turned out pretty good, though next time I’ll add red pepper flakes, from some heat. I’ll also add more curry then the recipe calls for, since we like more of it 🙂 Otherwise, it turned out great, and it’s been placed in the trusty recipe binder I have. Will make this again for sure.

Bamboo Bubble Tea Vietnamese & Thai Food

So, my hubby and I were literally buying gas on Wednesday, when I looked across the street and saw this place. I was craving a Coconut bubble tea, so I told my hubby, I was going to walk over there and get us one. He would follow suit after finishing up at the gas station. For the life of me, I’m not sure why I didn’t take a photo of the store myself, but I found one on Yelp, to share with you…thanks Michelle S 🙂 It’s a VERY small store front. There’s literally 4 stools and 2 small tables, so you know most just take out their orders. Now, like I said, I went here with the notion of just buying bubble teas…I was wrong LOL Once I laid my eyes on the menu, and saw that they had banh mi  sandwiches, I was sold!! My hubby and I had always heard of these Vietnamese sandwiches, but we’d never tried one. So, I decided this was what we were having for dinner. And at $2.95 a pop, it was MORE then reasonably priced 🙂

I decided on getting the assorted banh mi with pate sandwich, which was also the most popular. It consisted of an assortment of cold cuts, pork pate (all made in house!), lettuce, cilantro (mmm…), sliced hot pepper and pickled veggies. I gotta say, it was pretty good. The spicy hot pepper and pickled veggies were a good contrast to the creamy garlicky pate and cold cuts. We’ll definitely go back there again, as the prices are very reasonable and the bubble tea was good too, but I’ve yet to have a bad bubble tea!! So if you’re ever in Mississauga, you should drop in, and give them a try. They’re located at Dundas and Erindale…across from the Shell gas station.
