Thanksgiving dinner

Posted by: andrea tomkins In: Recipes and Food

I’ve been locked out of my own blog for some reason. Long story, but I can’t update it in the usual way so I am using a workaround to post this. Hopefully it doesn’t disappear into the ether. Sigh. I’ve been dealing with some technical issues and it’s really starting to wear on me. We had […]

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 offspring: Emma (24) and Sarah (22). 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, travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
