I’m in Canada for the better part of a week for a work conference. Even though it’s a ton of work, I always look forward to attending this conference every year. Since I work remotely now, it’s a great way to catch up with a lot of my old DC coworkers.
This year we are having the conference in Canada for the first time so I’m headed North! I’ve only been to Canada once for about two hours so I’m looking forward to seeing what Vancouver has to offer. I hear it’s a pretty amazing city.
Oh, and because I’m training for a half marathon right in the middle of all of this, I’ll be running around that big green peninsula in the photo above! Turns out running around that whole thing is about a ten mile loop from my hotel. Based on photos alone, I’m actually looking forward to my long weekend run for once!
Obviously, if you know of any good eats/drinks places in Vancouver, leave a comment.
Dickson’s Farmstand Tour – Really excellent butchers are few and far between these days (unfortunately) so it’s always good to see people who are doing it right. A great little photo tour and write up (@ Ruhlman)
Bacon Broccoli Potato Spring Rolls – Dan is always a master at smashing cuisines together and this cross between some sort of baked potato and a spring roll looks amazing. I could see sitting down to a plate of these guys for the football games this weekend! (@ Food in my Beard)
Spicy Beef Queso Dip – Cooked in a crock pot, it doesn’t get much better for a game day snack. You can make it in the morning and just keep it warm for hours. OR… pour it over nachos and eat it all immediately, which is what I would do. (@ Brown Eyed Baker)
Have a great weekend everyone! If you need me, I’ll be talking to a Mountie!
