Last night, I was overjoyed to find the white cheddar flavour of Food Should Taste Good chips at local grocer Pete’s Frootique. I found these chips several years ago while shopping in the U.S., but haven’t been able to get the white cheddar flavour here, which is my favourite!
However, when I got home I realized that the gluten-free certifications on the bag had a white sticker over them. I e-mailed the Food Should Taste Good folks today and here’s the response I got:
Earlier this month, we finally had a chance to visit jane’s on the common for brunch with Michael’s brother. Things didn’t start out so well as the four of us waited outside for almost an hour on a blustery Sunday for a table. It’s par for the course, however, with jane’s being so small and having a big following!
When we finally got inside, the first order of the day was to order drinks. Two members in our party ordered the organic Bloody Mary ($8) while I had a mimosa ($6). (Michael was driving and stuck to coffee.) It’s worthwhile noting that their Bloody Mary is gluten-free and doesn’t include Worcestershire sauce!
Michael and I have been trying to go to as many local places as possible in the year and a bit since we moved to Sackville. One of the last places on our list was Tom’s Family Restaurant on Sackville Drive. Most people we’d talked to weren’t a fan, but it has also been voted best restaurant in Sackville for the fifth year in a row by Coast readers. We figured it was time to give it a try.
We walked in the door on a Thursday night and it was complete mayhem.
