London in Calgary, Alberta – Challenge 7

This is going to be a short post.  Challenge #7 – eating Belgian food –  was an epic fail!

The plan… go to a Belgian pastry shop for lunch, then cook a Belgian meal for dinner. Sounds easy enough, right?

If you’re not from Calgary, you might not know the city suffered a dreadful flood back in June. It turns out the Belgian pastry shop was one of its victims and still hasn’t reopened. (Not sure if it will, which is a shame as it was a great place.)

As for dinner – Carbonade Flamande – I lost track of time and burned it.

Horribly. (I’m not renowned for my cooking at the best of times, but this was really bad!)

Thank goodness the dog enjoyed it.

Let’s hope Challenge #8 goes better!

  1. I loved this post because it is something I would do AND have done, more than once. Needless to say my children aren’t big people and this is due mainly to the fact that they have to eat their mother’s cooking.
    Sorry about the meal but thanks for making me smile.
