The month of November . . .
brings the birthdays of some very special friends...
it's the month that all the
Christmas and Holiday cards go on sale in the shops.
I love buying Christmas cards.
they're just very heavy to carry home!
And all the ribbons
and doo dads will be out in
And special cookies.
I love cookies. Christmas time Cookies
are the greatest, bakers pull out all
their best tricks and
It's a very
exciting time of the year for eating.
Now, where do i buy cake tins in Montreal ? ?

these are giant donuts.
This was one of the dessert choices
at the restaurant, Joe Beef one Thursday night
I can assure you that this photograph
has not been spruced up or altered in any way.
The donuts are
sliced in half and made into a donut-sandwich
with apple-cinnamon ice cream.
I was very curious to see what this would be like.

Proof of the giganto-pancake
You may well
be amused by this photo.
last week i made pancakes.
That's nothing new.
I've been making pancakes for .... years.
I've never been a fan of teeny weeny pancakes.
I think dainty-sized pancakes
are good fare for Elves but not for humans.
I like a pancake that fills a pan. Why
eat 8 pancakes when you really want to eat
one Large pancake?
Here is the photo of my Giganto pancake - it certainly
gained height while it was in the pan. Photo was
made with the pancake on a full sized cake rack.
And yes, i ate it all.
A pancake is good solid food, fun
to eat and an excellent
vehicle for delicious Maple Syrup.
Maple syrup is
full of antioxidants.
There's another reason to have
pancakes any time of the day.
