This week we visited: Sicamous, Revelstoke, Golden, Radium, Invermere, Kimberly, Cranbrook. They all went by in such a blur that I can hardly differentiate each in my mind!
One thing has really thrown us for a loop this week though, time zones. When we reached Golden we slowly realized that everything was ahead one hour! We had gone from 11:50am to 12:50am without even realizing! This encouraged us to learn more about time zones. Susan recommended this video by CGP Grey:
This led me to hours of watching and discovering CGP Grey. Susan had thought that the Alberta/BC border was the border between time zones, but it turns out that this is false! In fact, the border between the time zones is very strange and squiggly.
We are now in Fernie and we (think?) we are still in MDT. We just had the most wonderful meal at a restaurant next door to our hotel, called The Bridge Bistro.
We both ordered a bowl of their cream of mushroom soup, and these pork lettuce “tacos”. The mushroom soup was very tasty and healthy-looking, served with some fresh zucchini bread. The lettuce wrap “tacos” really made my day though. I’m having a love affair with these tacos! I didn’t bring the camera, so let me draw you a picture.
As you can see from this work of art, there were dishes of a cucumber-avacado-watermelon salsa, marinated diced pork, and goat cheese. The combination was OUTSTANDING! And, best of all, the waitress let me have the recipe! (For the avacado-cucumber-watermelon part anyways) I am very excited to be able to make this myself. mmm mmm mmm. This recipie could revolutionize my single-cooking life! Imagine, instead of having to do my “salad challenges” in order to finish a head of lettuce, I could just eat fabulous lettuce wraps all the time!
