Colin headed off to a fitness practice for soccer on Saturday morning...all the fields were closed for regular games and practices because of snow, melting snow and the resulting puddles. When he came home, the much anticipated creme brulee adventure begun. Colin is getting so comfortable in the kitchen and loves learning new techniques.
After Adam's game (and a shower) the boys and I drove into Kits to visit our first venue for the Vancouver Hot Chocolate Festival. It takes place until February 14th and all the info is HERE. The site lists the locations and you can see the list of flavours as well as see what flavours at which sites are available each day as many of the locations rotate their flavours. Proceeds are going to the Downtown Eastside Women's Shelter.
We visited Cocoa Nymph and Adam and I enjoyed the Maple Cinnamon Drinking Chocolate while Colin had some milk chocolate with artisanal orange marshmallows.
After dinner, Colin completed his favourite part of the creme brulee adventure and torched the sugar crusts.
While Adam was at practice I dealt with some computer updates, work stuff, groceries and making blueberry cinnamon buns. Adam's on semester break this week so at least I know he'll have breakfast taken care of when I'm at work. The recipe is a blend of Pioneer Woman's cinnamon rolls and a recipe I saw on Pinterest.
We had a lovely dinner out with my sister's family at Campagnolo to celebrate Adam's birthday with them. It is still his birthday month after all!
Happy birthday again Adam...I think that's it for this year buddy!
