A Quiet Thanksgiving Weekend

I wish that I had some new Thanksgiving resto weekend reviews to post but, with my husband in the hospital this weekend, it has not exactly been the time for new Vanny food scene discoveries. Fortunately, he is on the mend so we will be back in action soon!

Instead, I will gladly admit to eating at the Naam, my comfort food go-to, for the last two nights in a row.  Buddha's Feast one night, Naam Bowl the next.  How can one go wrong?  I have yet to come away dissapointed at a time when I need a little cheering up.

What also brightened my day today was a trip to the Kits Farmer's Market.  That always does the trick!  Here are the honourable mentions from my trip:


Juice Caboose- this truck' menu caught my eye at last week's Kerrisdale FM so I had it on my to-do list to try before the end of its season.  Sadly, this is coming fast- their last gig is at the UBC Apple Festival next weekend:(


     Today, I tried their Feature Smoothie, the Pumpkin Spice, made with avocado, carrots, spices and a hint of agave ($5- what a price!!!).   After taking my first sip, I had to double check the ingredient list- from the taste, I could have sworn they had just put a huge slice of Pumpkin Pie into the blender.  The spices were incredible and it had just the right amount of sweetness.  What a tasty (and healthy!) fall treat!  

Can't wait to sample more of their creative concoctions when they are back on the road next summer!


Bean Boy- I discovered this vendor selling his only product, hummous (95% organic), early in the season and I have been hooked ever since!  He makes three very original flavours (smokey chipotle, chili lime and curry currant) which are all wonderful.  It has a nice and thick consistency, which makes it ideal for dipping your favorite dipper (I love it with raw peppers and cucumbers).  He always has samples available so you can pick your flavor of the week (chili lime for me today!).  I was relieved to hear that he will be at the Winter Market so you can check out his stand there!


Klippers Organics- this is my go-to place for most of my market veggies, especially for my cherry tomatoes since they always seem to offer the best price and a great product.  Two pints for $8 today!  I plan to bring them with my lunch and pop them into my mouth just like candy.  Ummm so sweet!
