RDN: Adega

Let's rewind back to April when it was still WINTERY cold. Chris Ha rescued us from the cold damp by taking us to this lovely Spanish restaurant just steps from Yonge and Dundas.

Mama, Know Thyself

Today's NaBloPoMo revolves around a Ben Franklin quote: "There are three things extremely hard: steel, a diamond, and to know one's self." Do you think you know yourself well?I haven't done the NaBloPoMo before. I haven't done it because I do know myself well. I know that I won't commit to writing every day, because life intrudes, and I would rather spend a few days thinking about one post than post something without overthinking it....more
