In about week from now, I’ll be back to this –
And this –
And this –
But, for now, it’s a lot of this –
And, occasionally, this –
Today, Akemi and I braved the elements and headed downtown for some underground shopping. Discovered an enormous liquor store where I picked up a bottle of marmalade vodka for a party I may or may not be attending tomorrow night depending on the weather, a bottle of 15 year old dark rum finished speyside for the Dark Matter whisky club, and a bottle from the Buffalo Trace Experimental Collection for yours truly. Then, it was off to Old Montreal where we practically froze our faces off before settling down for a sweeeeet feast at Maple Delights, a tiny shop where you can sample various types of maple ice cream, maple macarons, maple cookies, and a tire d’enable (that, for some reason, Akemi refers to as pira da bu) which involves pouring maple syrup onto snow, allowing it to solidify, and then eating it in its sticky, semi-solid state.
One of my New Year’s resolutions for 2016 will be to cut down on sugar. Starting January, it’ll be nothing but maple syrup!
