A Tour of London
Happy Sunday friends!
I hope everyone had a lovely day and a fun filled weekend I definitely did. As you read, yesterday was quite a busy day, but it was fantastic I like keeping busy and spending it with my guys made it so much better
It’s great to hear that so many of you love sashimi, too It’s definitely a favourite of mine. I could
probably definitely eat it every single day, so if anyone wants to schedule a sushi date with me I won’t turn you down
In fact, my good friend Chelsea and I are planning on going out for sushi this coming weekend I am so pumped!
Unfortunately, I didn’t consumer anymore sashimi today; however, I did have salmon for dinner
My Dad, Uncle, and I went out for dinner tonight before my student council meeting to McGinnis Landing. McGinnis Landing is a wonderful restaurant here in London. The food is always amazing. It is one of those restaurants that I tell people you are guaranteed a good meal Highly recommended. One of my favourite things about this restaurant is that they offer a new “feature” menu each month! It’s great because this shows that the restaurant is conscious about seasonality The feature menu will offer produce that pertains to that particular season and usually the meals offered on the feature menu reflect the season as well. Example, in the winter they feature more “comforting” foods such as chicken pot pie
I got a lovely portion of salmon. It was grilled and done to absolute perfection. I deemed it to be the best restaurant salmon I have had to this date I could tell that it was fresh instead of frozen which made it all that much more delicious
I failed at taking a picture of my entire meal. We had to wait a bit longer than usual to get our food due to a Christmas party placing an order before us, so I just dug right in However, I did take a picture of the “crusty” piece of salmon (the end piece that was crispiest from grilling).
Why did I take a picture of this measly portion of salmon instead of my entire meal you ask!?
Well, the crispy piece is my Mom’s favourite and I immediately thought of her
I love you Mom. Wish you were here! xoxo
Seriously, I think of my Mom all of the time….
Which is why I took a picture of what I thought she would order if she were with us…
Not only was my dinner fabulous, but my entire day was fabulous
It all started out with a super sweaty workout My hamstring and glutes workout gets me every time My Dad was pretty disgusted with my strong sweaty stench when I got back from the gym; he actually called me stinky and told me to get into the shower! Haha! I didn’t mind being given an order to shower though I have the best shower head in the world now My showers have been divine ever since the new addition
After I showered up and de-stunk myself(?), my Dad and I went to a beautiful church service I love my church and once again the priests’ sermon was absolutely amazing and really inspired me. He spoke about using the talents that God has given us. It was incredibly inspirational, so I am thinking of doing an entire post just on what he had to say it was beautiful. I highly recommend reading The Parable of the Talents, so you know what I will be referring to when I do my post I won’t be able to measure up to the words of my priest, but I would love to write about how inspirational his sermon was and how we all can learn from it
Even though I increased my intake at breakfast and after my workout, I developed a raging hunger during church, so we headed to Angelo’s for lunch immediately following the beautiful mass
Angelo’s is a breathtaking market in London that offers an incredible selection of produce, all the cheeses your little heart could imagine, an overwhelming variety of freshly baked breads, and, well, let’s just say I consider it to be another foodie’s paradise In addition to the things I listed (which totally doesn’t give this place justice), Angelo’s also offers brunch, lunch, and dinner. Everything is made fresh to order It’s super cool. You can never get bored of this place as there are so many options
I love this place and loved my lunch (rotisserie chicken with a whack load of fresh veg) I think my Dad may be a little obsessed with this place as we have been there twice already (within 24 hours)… I wouldn’t be surprised if we went once more tomorrow… I will be needed groceries for the rest of the week
The rest of our day was filled with touring more of the city and showing the guys my favourite finds in London
One being The Little Red Roaster They have great coffee (voted the best blend in London) and freshly baked goodies, wraps, sandwiches, etc. Despite their wonderful caffeinated blend, I opted for decaf (sticking with those November goals!)
I thought the quote on their chalk board was beautiful, so I have to share it with you all
So true, hey?
A day wouldn’t be complete without hitting up the mall And boy did I ever. Costa Blanca had a ginormous sale that made my eyes the size of saucers, so I spent the majority of my time there and walked out with a new fall coat Ideally, I was in the search for black boots since all of my boots are brown and all of my coats are black, but I solved the problem with a new brown coat Talk about being a problem solver (Not to mention money saver, this coat was 50% off!)
I will most definitely give you all a little fashion shoot in my next post when I wear my new coat to school tomorrow!
Tomorrow will be a good day, but as a sad one as it is Daddy’s and Uncle’s last full day here…
Until next time of course
I have 8:30 am class tomorrow, but will get to spend the afternoon and on with the guys Looking forward to that very much!
I should probably go though as this post is really long. Oh well, hope you all enjoyed hearing about some of my favourite places here in London Hope you guys visit me some day I guarantee a good time
