My best lunch this week

Posted by: andrea tomkins In: Ottawa|Recipes and Food

I have had a LOT of great lunches the past couple of weeks but today’s takes the cake and I had to share it here: This Thai Coconut Soup came to me via Zestible. Or should I say, the ingredients and the recipe did. Zestible is an Ottawa grocery and meal planning service (although as […]

Zucchini ribbon and caper pasta recipe

Posted by: andrea tomkins In: Recipes and Food

I decided to try a new pasta dish for lunch the other day and use up a few ingredients I had lying around. This was the result: This dish is via the Canadian Living website (which you can find right here). If you click over to the original recipe you’ll see that my photo doesn’t […]

The menu looked so GOOD I was completely incapable of making a decision. It was a four-way tie between these menu items: Turkey Sandwich – Olive Tapenade/Double Smoked Bacon/Tomatoes/Cheddar/Mustard […]

Dailylunches #1357 – Bowl o’ Green

Posted by: andrea tomkins In: Recipes and Food

I had a great lunch yesterday. In fact, I think I’ll make it again today: It’s essentially an asparagus salad, although now that I think about it, I think it’d make a fantastic make-ahead side dish as well. Here’s the original recipe. I followed it fairly closely but I should probably mention that I pared […]

Lunch number 1346 and 1347 was a real winner. I liked this little dish so much I made it twice in a row. And as an added bonus I got to use up some leftover quinoa that was kicking around the fridge. Woot! Spicy shrimp, quinoa, avocado bowl for one You will need: five shrimp […]

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our two daughters Emma (18) and Sarah (16). I am the managing editor of our community newspaper, the Kitchissippi Times. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger, and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999... which makes me either a total dinosaur or a veteran, I'm not sure which! The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
