This ham was from a Richmond-area butcher shop called Christopher’s Meat Market. It didn’t require a lot of fixin’ up. Mark mixed up a quick […]

My brain overfloweth. I’ve had so many things on my mind lately, work/home/life, and midway through Easter I succumbed to some kind of weird bug that has been sucking the life out of me ever since. Suffice it to say that I do not have time to be sick. But Easter, Easter was peaceful. Part […]

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our dog Piper who is kind of a big deal on Instagram. We also have two human daughters: Emma (20) and Sarah (18). During the day I work as a writer at The Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999. 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.
