Taking Taco Tuesday To New Heights – Chicken Tinga Tacos


You don’t know what you’ve got ’til it’s gone. With our friends the MacNeils making the trek to Alberta, we also lost our all-access pass to authentic Mexican tacos. Matt loves to put together the real deal, complete with handmade corn tortillas. Weekly flights to Edmonton would become a bit pricy, so we did the […]

Boston Pizza Kids Cards Are Back


Boston Pizza is the first restaurant we ever took Chelsea to. Even when she just sat in a high chair drooling on her baby crackers while Hubs and I had dinner, she loved the place, and we loved how family friendly it was. To this day, if you ask Chelsea where she would like to […]
