This place has some amazing looking bread and their mini pizza look so good. I must try some.

This video depicts exactly how I feel about food. And while I may not use wheat flour that is local I still mix and bake all my bread right here.
I was in Victoria, BC two weeks ago and got to try out some of the islands fabulous food. Here are some of the places I got to try. If you have recommendation, let me know I’ll be back in November.
The next time you go to McDonald’s and get a cheese burger I want you to look at yourself in a mirror with disgust. Bin 4 does burgers right, and they have so much selection. This ain’t your pop’s ketchup and mustard burger. These are “make your taste buds go wild” burgers.
Oh and I can’t forget the greens. The salad I got, which will remain nameless because I don’t know it, was amazing. I credit the vinaigrette, I should have asked the recipe.
If I were to ever use the word “divine” to describe a dish of food, it would be a dish from Stage Wine Bar. It was simple divine. Each dish was small, with bite size portions. It was perfect for the tapas experience or for a foodie like myself.
This scallop risotto was only one of 5 dishes we had.
I would go back. I will be going back.
WCW, as I’m calling it, is a bright, high energy, hip, west coast feel waffle joint located in downtown Victoria. From breakfast to dinner this place can serve up what you want on a waffle.
I had the BBQ Chicken, and it was something else. The zing of the BBQ chicken with the cheese melted on top, all combined with the fluffy and slightly crunchy – fresh – waffle.
This is my must go to joint in Victoria when I visit. Whether it is to sit in or to grab and head out. I love this pizza. It is exactly what I want my pizza to taste like. A good solid crust with just the right amount of ingredients with the right kind of cheese.
Where to next?
Slow cooked in a can of coke for 8 hours.
For the past two years I have been away from home for Thanksgiving but I didn’t mind, I really enjoyed myself. Both times I was taken in by someone else and took part in what I call a Misfits Thanksgiving, where most of the people have no family in the community but come together with friends. I am very thankful for those people.
So this year I wanted to host my own. We had a small group of us who enjoyed the most amazing meal ever. I don’t think I have experienced a more relaxing day in a long time, than I did on that Saturday.
You will note in my many photos below that most of them have my good friend, James Rubec, in them. He was by the house most of the day prepping and cooking Roxanne, our turkey. While I wasn’t taking photos I cooked up several dishes of my own, there is just no evidence of that happening.
For the 6 of us we had so much food and my fridge is completely packed the morning after. Besides the turkey and stuffing that James cooked, I cooked my famous Scallop Potatoes and a Sweet Potato Pie… and bread that we forgot to eat. We also had maple glazed brussels sprouts, a nice fresh salad, a thanksgiving pizza and a homemade Pumpkin Cheese Cake.
The day, the food and the evening we all amazing. I’m thankful that it all happened.
