A Sweet Monday

Summer has arrived in Toronto!

And I kicked the day off with a bang.
Apple pie for breakfast, yes siree I did. Oh and a mango smoothie too.

After picking up a mini pie yesterday from Apiecalypse Now! at the Distillery Market I was eager to try it because well I think I haven't had pie since last summer.A shame I know.
Look how cute the pie is!

So how did it taste?? Well the crust was nice and flaky while the filling was sweet and cinnamon-y. A very good combo with local and organic apples - perfect! Try this pie and other goodies, they are selling on Sundays!
I paired it with a mango smoothie (6 frozen mango cubes, 1/3 cup almond milk. 1/3 cup orange juice. 1 scoop of Vega Tropical Tango, 1 tbsp chia seeds) to round out this breakfast.

Feeling energized I set out biking to Port Credit, took some photos of the lake.

Rested on a park bench, had a snack also from Apiecalypse Now, Lemon Loaf slice (we bought the whole loaf but Jim was taking it to work this week for a snack, so I stole some first!) it was very refreshing, I absolutely love lemon zest in loaf cakes. it gave me the boost I needed to head home.

Arrived back home almost 2 hours later at a much slower pace than I originally set out, sadly and accidentally crushed a snail with my bike (stupid bike), then finally finished the backyard garden with plants and seeds sown. Planted in here are: tomatoes, carrots, beets, lettuce, bell peppers, cucumbers, zucchini, eggplant, celery and watermelon. We'll see what happens!

Green Beans are growing. Out of the first 6 seeds I planted 3 weeks ago, only 1 took off so then I tried again with 5 more seeds about a week and a half ago. Obvious which one got the head start. 

Edamame, 5 seeds were sown, 5 plants are growing (planted 3 weeks ago)!

Now off to bed, I am still sad about the snail...but otherwise it was a sweet day.
How was your Monday?

Have a sweet day!


  1. Love your blog, though it always makes me hungry, and sad that I'm two hours away from those delicious pies in London.

  2. Hi Peter, thanks for letting me know you like my blog! I am still new to it so bear with me :) If you ever get out to Toronto you know where to go! I will be posting more recipes in the future so you can indulge from London.
