I bought this 12 x120ml ,pack of Peppermint ice cream sandwiches at Superstore for $4.97. First time buying these. The biscuit part was soft and the same texture as other ice cream sandwiches,just fine. The ice cream was nice and creamy and there were tiny bits of green and red candy cane pieces in it. The pieces were just the right size and crunchy. You would not want the pieces any bigger. There was a mild taste of peppermint throughout the ice cream. Not too strong.  If you enjoy peppermint candy canes and...

I watched this CBC show for the first time Friday night.  It showcased Canadian families from Maple Ridge,Toronto and Calgary. I like the fact it is a Canadian show and Canadian families are shown. I like the fact the families are from different areas of Canada. It shows the families in their home environments which captures my interest. The show tells the income ,debt, and jobs of each family. Some family members are shown in their job settings too which captures my interest. You gain a real insight as to ...

I bought this 450g bag(yes bag) of Nestle Coffee Crisp Hot Chocolate at Superstore for $4.98. It says the bag makes 18 servings . Use 2 tbsp of hot chocolate powder with 3/4 cup hot water it says on the package. I used the 3/4 cup and mixed it with the 2 tbsp of powder. I found the flavour a bit strong so I added more hot water so about 1 cup and it was fine then. The flavour was like the Coffee Crisp bar which I like.  It did not taste too sweet for me. It suggests on the package to mix the powder with m...

This book was published in 2017 and just arrived at my library.  I picked it up today. I am looking for new recipes. On the front it says: "Clever and versatile ways to use what you've got on hand. "  I like that idea. There is an icon at the top of each recipe and these icons are: Quick Fix,One Pot,Slow Cooker,Make Ahead. This is a good idea. You know what it is before you read the recipe. On page 10 is a Fresh Veggie Cooking Chart. The vegetable is listed,preperation,conventional ov...

I got this Thin Crust,Dr.Oetker ,frozen pizza at Superstore for free. I won a free pizza coupon from the Giuseppe contest. I chose the Pepperoni thin crust  pizza. There are many varieties to choose from . Bake in oven at 375 degrees for 15 minutes. The  pizza turned out  perfectly in that time. Put directly on the oven rack. Crust was crispy. Sauce was just the right amount and flavor was mild. There were lots of pieces of pepperoni and it was nice and spicy .  Lots of Mozzarella cheese on it...

This was the show's Halloween episode . This episode was not as funny as it usually is. Axl and Lexi (girlfriend and boyfriend) dress up as Donnie and Marie and are surprised to learn they were brother and sister and not a married couple. The costumes were authentic looking though. They are frustrated that Sue (Axl's sister) always wants to hang out with them and all their efforts to be alone are thwarted by Sue. Brick,the youngest kid,discovers through an old town newspaper article that a woman died in th...

I bought this box of 81 pieces at Marshalls for $12.99.Compare at $17.00 it says on the sticker.  For ages 3+. Comes with instruction booklet. An adult would have to mostly follow the building instructions but the adult could ask the child to find each piece and help put it together. A wonderful bonding experience for adult and child.  My husband and our little one put it together. It says "Quick & Easy Building" on the box and for the most part this is true. Comes with figures Leo and Shr...

Service was friendly. There are picnic tables to eat at. Grassy areas. They also serve soft and hard ice cream an...

I had questions and they were answered politely. The menu board was easy to read and the lettering was large enough for me to read.  I appreciated this. They also ...
