Oh right....the big yellow cans. I forgot about them. Shopping day tomorrow.

Just close enough for comfort Pac. My DxW. We live 10 blocks apart by address, but with a lake added inbetween, it improves distance and makes life half-way tolerable (for both of us). In January, when the lake is frozen enough, we take short cuts across the lake to ea/ other's house.

Mayan tacos and Margs! [ATTACH]

I had already dug into mine, and had to yell to DH, "Wait! Don't eat it yet, I have to take a picture!"

The lady on who took my phone order at Pharmaprix (Shopper's Drugmart outside of Quebec) said that Habitant French Canadian Pea Soup would be on special, starting tomorrow. They may have different specials in different provinces. You could check their online flyer. It asks for your postal code. Of course, if there is no Shopper's Drugmart near you, it's irrelevant.

Thanks Taxy. Yes we are littered with Shoppers Drugmarts here. Almost as many as Timmy's.

I'll pop over to their site and have a peek.

It looks great, but I'd have to substitute out the octopus. That is one fishy I have never been attracted to. Maybe shrimp or something else on the firm side

ha!not the best looking of sea creatures,i'll grant you that!!the guy on the fish counter in tesco said i'm the only person who ever buy's octopus.reminds me of the alien in,umm,"alien"!tell you what tho',it's one of the tastiest to be sure.flavour reminiscent of scallops & texture similar to cooked chicken thigh.mind you,even after freezing/defrosting to tenderise the beast,you still have to cook it for 90-120 mins.tough old bird the octo....solid muscle.good thing is tho',unlike turkey at this time o' year,there's no fighting over who gets a leg!!

For Christmas, DH gave me a cookbook called "Soup of the Day," all about, you guessed it, soup! And stew. So, using leftover steak and Hasselback potato from Christmas dinner, I made a steak and potato soup. It also has onions, celery, garlic, carrots, parsnips, beef broth and parsley, and I added a leftover cooked hamburger. Don'tcha love using up leftovers in soup? We also had leftover yeast rolls.
