  • Corn rationing

    I went to grab a sandwich at the Loeb grocery store down the street from work at lunch today, and they had a sign up on the door which got me thinking about economics and the practical matters of selling produce. The sign said, roughly: Due to unforeseen circumstances, we must limit corn purchases to […]

  • Erin go blargh

    Happy St. Patrick’s day! Candice and I had planned on celebrating with a pint and some Irish stew tonight, but we checked out all of the meat shops in the market and none of them had any setter. So instead we’re going to have a traditional Irish dinner of no potatoes. (I didn’t even wear […]

  • I have a new food blog!

    Candice and I realized recently that we spend an awful lot of time and energy on things food-related: reading and talking about food and wine and restaurants, trying local restaurants, cooking, baking, looking for local merchants, shopping for wine, and so forth, and that there’s a dearth of people talking about food in Ottawa even […]
