Beaver and Bulldog

Collingwood has MANY great restaurants and I wish we could have visited quite a few more on our trip. We really enjoyed the ones we went to. Our first dinner we ordered pizza from PIE. It was a crazy day and my mom had no clue we were coming so my dad talked her into ordering pizza. I regret not taking photos and will definitely stop there again on my next trip! They not only have pizzas, but also pastas, salads, and appetizers. I ordered a HEDGE HOG PIE. It was great, but a little too spicy for my taste. My dad absolutely loved it and now I think he’s hooked. My favorite of the night was the CLUCK NORRIS PIE. I cannot tell you how amazing it was!!! Frank nor myself are big fans of arugula, but holy moly this was amazing! It has a tomato sauce for the base and it’s topped with pulled chicken, goat cheese, pesto, arugula, and a balsamic glaze. I cannot explain to you how delicious this pizza is!!! I am definitely looking forward to having it again.

Now let’s talk about Beaver and Bulldog. It’s a small restaurant with an awesome pub feel. We went for lunch and it was busy. I can only imagine what it would be like on Friday and Saturday night.

 

I had the Canadian Ski Club. It was good. I wasn’t crazy about it and I’m a club sandwich freak. It was my first time tasting peameal bacon. I think it kind of threw me off a little. I think now that I’ve had peameal bacon a few times that I can appreciate it more.

 

What I was crazy about was my sisters shrimp. WOW! Crispy Filo Shrimp. Need I say more? Well I’m going to tell you about it anyway. “Jumbo shrimp coated in crispy filo pastry flakes and served with your favorite wing sauce.” Uhhh yum!!!! She got it with their Thai wing sauce and it’s PERFECT. I kid you not. I was so in love with her shrimp that when Beaver and Bulldog was suggested for ordering wings during the week I didn’t object! I got the shrimp and paired it with their yummy caesar salad.

 

After our lunch, Carter and I decided to share dessert. We got the Brownie Sundae. Another YUM! The brownie was cooked perfectly. It was a little gooey which went perfect with the vanilla ice cream, topped with their homemade chocolate fudge sauce, and whipped cream. It was delicious!

How delicious does that look?

 

I’m sad I didn’t think to take more pictures, but take my word for it, yum!!!

 

Let me know if you check it out, what you ate, and your overall thoughts!!

 

Later Cravers!

Surprise!!

My husband and I surprised my mom, brothers, and sister. Obviously I couldn’t post before I left, so I waited until goodbyes were said and we returned home. We kept it a secret for 4 months. It was so hard. There were so many phone calls in between that I kept having to try so hard to keep it from her. She and I are very close and share pretty much everything so keeping this from her was very difficult.

My mom’s parents left Abaco and moved to Canada. (In March!!! Crazyyy.) A huge step for them and for me. Almost 3 years ago my mom, dad, sister, and two brothers moved and it was the hardest thing I had ever been through. We always lived around the corner from each other. February made 2 years since I had seen my mom and brother, Tucker. So you can imagine how hard it was to keep a secret.

It was an amazing trip. We got my grandparents settled in to their new place, went to a few great restaurants, had wonderful family time, enjoyed a “mini” honeymoon, and saw the beauty that Collingwood and the Blue Mountains had to offer.

This is my mom’s favorite spot in Collingwood. Right on the beautiful Georgian Bay and it overlooks the town of Blue Mountain.

 

Stay tuned for more from our amazingly, wonderful trip!

Hurricane Irma

Hey cravers!

I wanted to reach out to you before Hurricane Irma is upon us. We in Abaco are preparing for her arrival, but are praying she stays away.

Please keep the entire Bahamas, Barbuda, Puerto Rico, other Caribbean islands, and Florida in your prayers.

My brother and sister left last weekend and are safe in Canada. This week you guys were supposed to have a new recipe, but unfortunately I have been crazy busy trying to get prepared.

Next week once I am back online I will have organizing ideas, some pictures of cakes I’ve made in my off time, and some hurricane tips. Please stay tuned for them.

If Hurricane Irma is coming your way; I beg you to be prepared. If you are in an evacuation zone, get out!!!

We have already started to feel wind and are expecting more this afternoon and into the weekend.

Please stay safe!

Love and prayers to you all!

The wind has picked up, and most boats are out of the harbour or in a marina. Please pray for everyone in Irma’s path.
