A Spicy Topic

I don’t like black pepper.  To be completely honest, I cannot fathom why or how it became as popular on North American tables as salt.  In my opinion, salt has far more to offer!  That said, I don’t mind changing things up with pepper on macaroni and cheese, but that is about my only exception.

The worst: after finishing dinner and having a lovely vague aftertaste reminiscent of your meal, you discover a piece of black pepper in your mouth that instantly eliminates all other tastes and leaves your tongue burning with its unhappy flavour.

I feel like I’m the only one who refuses a waiter/waitress when they offer freshly-ground pepper.  (I don’t even like when it’s not-recently-ground and lost half its flavour…..)  Alas, I’m under the impression I’m one of few anti-pepper patrons.  Perhaps I am not alone?

Day 10

😯

  I didn’t go on the beach today.  I know!  Very sad.  However, in my defense, it was pretty cool here today.  As in, 10 degrees Celsius, and *very* windy.  People here were wearing touques, no word of a lie.  We were watching, amused, as a construction worker who was in charge of guiding traffic was trying to arrange his touque under his hardhat.  We had a good few minutes waiting to watch the hilarity.  It really was quite chilly though, especially considering two days before, I was getting a sunburn.

  In the morning, I went for a brunch crêpe at Julio’s, and chatted with him for a bit.  You Are Always On My Mind, sung by Elvis was playing, and Julio sang a little as he prepared.  So entertaining 🙂 The crêpe was delicious of course……

  We went shopping today and I bought a few little things.  After, we went to Crabby Bill’s for my second crabs’ legs meal, and it was even better than the first….. actually quite a bit better.  The original location is still my fave.  On the drive back we saw quite a few of the rich rich people’s houses/mansions with their backyards on the beach facing the water…… it’s rumoured Tom Cruise had a home in that area, so we always joke about going to see if he’s still got his Christmas lights up.

  Somehow those seemingly few activities took up our entire day.  Tonight we might be off to play some pool, but we’ll see.  I have to get working on my applications so we might be tied up doing that instead.  Anyway, have a good night folks!
