Another day at home for the most part, finishing our 2015 recap which you’ve hopefully watch by now – the biggest highlight is our trip video from Vancouver Island, make sure you watch it!
Then capped off the first day of the new year with a delicious dinner with some of our nearest & dearest
Please enjoy our 2015 recap here 🙂
Apparently we made it on ESPN at the end of last week’s Husky victory over USC – go Dawgs!
One day late, we celebrated BK’s birthday at Duck & Waffle, a recommendation form my friend ZD. One of the few high rises in downtown London, we were treated to great views of the city as we met A & L in the bar for pre-dinners cocktails.
And with a menu set up for sharing we were able to try lots of different dishes…
first up, crispy pig ears, served in a brown paper bag:
Spicy Ox Cheek doughnut:
Violet Artichoke & Parmesan bread:
Wild Cornish Pollock Meatballs:
Smoked Mozzarella Salad:
and of course, the iconic duck & waffle:
Dessert, fancy French toast essentially 🙂
Everything was really good – I think the pig ears, ox tail doughnut and octopus were the top three for the table, but no bites were left behind on any plate. Happy birthday BK!
Cheers to good friends!
yep, they even have ham-flavored potato chips in Spain so of course BK had to trythem. Not terrible, but you wouldn’t need a larger bag…
In case you missed any of these buried in my blogs, here’s some videos from the trip:
Great Ocean Road:
Melbourne Bike Tour:
Jet Boating on the Dart River:
BK Bungy Jump:
Punakaiki Pancake Rocks:
One of the highlights of the trip was going down into the glow worm caves – they don’t let you take your own camera though so we had to wait until we got home to see what pics they took of us, so here’s a look at what we did while the Hawks were beating the Niners 🙂
