The story of my weekend;

Friday night, I left work, and picked up the Lizard at her office then off we went to Kingston. Traffic sucked - we were down to 40 kph as we crawled past Oshwa. It was heavier than usual all the way to Kingston.

Saturday, we hung out with athenalindia and her TRHO. After lunch, I took off to give the girls time to do girl things (which are really only girl things for those particular girls), and went to the gym in downtown Kingston, which was pretty nice - a little run down in spots, but big, well stocked, and mostly empty. In the TMI dept., I've had to start spraying disinfectant on my gym headphones, because they get soaked with sweat that doesn't dry out between workouts in this weather. So they stink alot. They disinfectant stuff seems to be clearing that up, thankfully. My workout gloves likely need to be replaced, since they haven't survived washing well.

After that, we went back to LizardRents place for steak and salads. We then went to the Brew Pub, which had oatmeal stout (yay!) and a cran-apple cider (yay!). When we headed out, I was tipsy, and demanded poutine (not something I should be eating, but I had been craving it for a while). The LizardMom nearly had a heart attack when she saw us eating it.

Sunday, I was getting suffocated by the long haired cat, so spent most of the morning roasting in the shade outside with my book. Then we headed back to TO for more driving through afwul traffic. This time, the blame can squarely be placed on RVs and campers, both of which seem to do 80, until they want to pass a truck - then they move into the left lane and drive 90-100 until they pass the truck, which takes a while at that speed. By the time we go to TO (which had bad traffic because the Gardiner was closed for the Indy), it was later than we'd planned, so we went right on to webby's place for BBQ fun! There was meat, and good people. I managed to get a nice sunburn on my shoulders in the 1.5 hours we were out there.

By the time we got home, I was one tired, red monkey.

...I think reading that just made me crave poutine.

Moo hoo ha! Artery clogs for all!

i'd suggest baking soda or those small silicone packets or keeping them submerged in borax (used to dry flowers too).

I thought about the baking soda, but hadn't figured out how to keep the powder from going everywhere. I'm going to see how a) disinfecting, and b) pulling them out of my workout bag to dry at night works, since both should be pretty simple methods to test.

I decided not to be a lazy grrl and actually look up poutine. It seems yummy in a disgusting sort of way. I know I've seen fries with gravy, and certainly cheese fries (and chili cheese fries), but never cheese and gravy. Although one site I found said it's supposed to be cheese curds (but I guess hold the whey and the spider).

Now I want some good frites, er, chips, er fries. Whatever. (Just don't call 'em FRENCH fries to a Belgian, they get all pissy and say THEY invented frites. Who am I to argue when they're so tasty?)

Poutine, of course, should be made with big, thick fries (what Canadian culture's fading memory once called "chips" to differentiate). Cheese curd is just heavy, squeeky cheese, basically - if you've never had any, it might be worthwhile to get some at some point, just to try...

Now that I think of it, though poutine is, arguably, "french" fries - french canadian anyway.


Now I'm craving poutine again.

Ah, oops. Sorry. ;o)

So are the cheese curds kind of similar to paneer (Indian cheese)?
Jul. 11th, 2005 06:00 pm (UTC)
Not really - paneer is pretty spongey and light, where cheese curd is very dense and solid. Both are squeeky, though!
Jul. 11th, 2005 06:10 pm (UTC)
Mmm, squeeky food!

I will be partaking of the poutine in Ottawa -- which is very near Quebec. I think I will spend much time in Hull.

French Canadians have more fun.
