Thinking Out Loud 01.22.15

by Meg on January 22, 2015

Hey there!

I hope you’re all having a great week so far! Mine’s been busy, but we’ll talk a bit more about that shortly…

I’m joining in on Amanda’s Thinking Out Loud today!



1. So, life happened this week. And what I mean by that is that I got busy with life and a blog post I meant to write didn’t get written. I wanted to share a follow up recipe to last week’s How To Stuff A Chicken Breast post. I guess that will have to wait until next week, friends! Sorry about that!

2. Soooooo why was I so busy this week? Well, Eddie’s parents (so my soon-to-be-in-laws!!!!) came to visit us this week all the way from London, Ontario for the first time!!!! We were/are thrilled to have them spending the week with us. So, instead of blogging multiple times this week, I’ve been taking a bit of a break, which is why I didn’t get the chance to share that recipe with you this week! Next week – I promise!

3. I kind of  really want to move to Saskatoon. If you’re familiar with Saskatchewan, you already know what I’m talking about, but if you’re not – Saskatoon is a really trendy city here in Saskatchewan. I was just there this past weekend and gosh do I love it there. Basically because they have a DAVIDsTEA and the best restaurants in the province. Hello, my name is Meg and I love tea and food.


4. Speaking of DAVIDsTEA, they’ve created a lot of new teas within the past few weeks! Of course, I had to try one of their new teas while I was there this past weekend. I chose their new tea called Espresso Yourself (they have the cutest names!). It’s a black tea with espresso beans and a mocha-y flavour. I loved it, but it didn’t trump my love for Coffee Puerh.


5. In addition to sipping on deeeelicious teas while in Saskatoon, we went to a couple of really tasty restaurants! We visited Ayden again and I couldn’t help but order the exact same thing as I did last time – a beef burger. I have to say, this burger was better than the last. It was done rare and was it GOOD! I could eat that for dinner any night of the week! Mmmmmmm <3

6. I guess I was on a burger kick while in Saskatoon? The day after we had dinner at Ayden, we went to Calories for lunch. Eddie and I had never ate a meal at Calories before, but we did enjoy some dessert and tea there the last time we were in Saskatoon back in October. They had an amazing in-house-made chocolate gelato and loose leaf teas that I knew their lunch/dinner menu would be worth trying, so we made sure to eat there this trip! On their menu they had a locally raised, organic beef burger topped with sautéed mushrooms. How could I pass that up!? Local and organic beef!? I just had to order it, so I did and enjoyed every bite. Again, mmmmmmmm <3

7. On the way to Saskatoon Eddie and I played my new Ed Sheeran that I got from my parents for Christmas. Oh. my. goodness. Such a good CD! We both loved it and I think it will be my new CD for the winter. (If you know anything about me I listen to CDs for such a long period of time on repeat until I literally cannot listen to it anymore.)

8. Speaking of music… Maroon 5 is coming to Saskatoon in March. I’d love to go see them live! I have a wee bit of a little girl crush on Adam and it would give me another excuse to go to Saskatoon 8-) (and eat burgers…..)

9. The highlight of my week (besides having the in-laws visit!) was appearing on Kaila’s podcast. If you haven’t given it a listen yet, you can listen to it by following this link!

That’s all for today, loves! I have a busy weekend ahead of me, so I will see you back here next week!
