tom-mac and cheese!

This week has been one of those weeks that are just sooooo busy at work... you need to eat at your desk and stuff your face in about 2 minutes. And so I did :(

But since my week has been busy I had no time to do groceries, and so I bought my lunch! I swung by at Serious cheese... but I had no idea what to get.

The gentleman behind the counter was very helpful. As I was aimlessly gazing at the menu board, he was making a few suggestions. "How about Tomato Soup with a grilled cheese?" I said I am not a bread dipper. Then he says "What about drizzling tomato soup on your grilled cheese?" I said I hate mushy bread and things like hot chicken sandwiches.

THEN HE SAID... "What if I pour some tomato soup in your mac and cheese!!!!" I said... "Now you're talkin' ". (not exactly in those words, but you get my point!)

Here it is folks! He called it bloody mac n' cheese, I called it delicious. It was like a twist on a rose sauce. Delish!

Boy did it hit the spot!

Bon appetit!

Be a social butterfly...

Whatever you wanna call them, they are beautiful!

Carleton University is featuring their yearly Butterfly Show from October 2 to October 11 2010, from 9 am to 4 pm.
It's amazing to see the different size, shapes and colours these wonderful creatures come in.
I might make it out there this weekend... get some fresh air and make room for all the turkey that belongs in my belly!

Hope to see you there!
Happy Thanksgiving my O'valleyers.
