I miss Mat and Jordi.
Our toast lasts so much longer without the toast/grilled cheese mongrels in the house…But we all miss them, playing songs over and over again until they die. We’ve certainly lost some vicariousness around the house. Can’t wait to see them back at the end of the month. They sadly have missed my first attempt at a huge batch of chili, Ross asked his Dad to explain to me how to make his magical chili and was sadly surprised when he told me all the things I had already assembled for our own, only to be crushed by the food networks show good eats… their episode on chili made our chili look weak in comparison…on the bright side everyone has had praise for my chili and Ross said it almost beats out his dads’. Adam sadly is not a huge fan of the spice and in combination with him being ill, it was not the most well placed dinner in his diet….Too bad though we have enough chili for 4 more nights at the least!
Over the last few days we’ve gotten almost 2 feet of fresh snow in town and tons of pow on the mountain. Sadly I have not been up there in a few days due to working on getting a job before my training started, but of course I’ll be ok now. Colton is playing out his last week out in Revelstoke for a while due to lack of fundage so we’ve been busy using our precious 4 hours of sunlight from 12 till 4 everyday to walk around town and hand out resumes to hopefully extend some our tenants’ stay . My job finally gave me hours for training on the weekend so rent does not seem as impossible anymore at least in my case.
To all my family that have been asking what I wanted for Christmas and I rudely forgot to reply, I’m sorry. For Christmas I really don’t need anything up here, now that I have money coming for me in the future. I only ask for patience to pay back those I have borrowed money from to keep up here. As for Ken, I expect those skis in the mail pronto…so I may burn them, or try them…I dunno depends on my mood. I hope that when I return I can continue working on piano, as a piano was a Christmas gift I was hoping on asking for but sadly do not feel I deserve at the moment.
As for the boarding and snow bit of the blog, the mountain is fantastic and I’ve only rode the top half of the mountain since the bottom is probably opening up next week. The mountain is certainly a leg burner on all accounts and offers lots of fun terrain…I’ve been burning down Snow Rodeo and SWF on my time up there but the Separate Reality Glades on a good powder day looks like a lot of fun but it was really tracked out last time I was riding. Overall for the difficulty I was expecting from the Stoke Chair I was pleasantly surprised how many good runs there were ranging in difficulty from beginner all the way to advanced.
Through the suggestion of Dave Maier I will be posting some local restaurant reviews in my utmost honesty…And as my family and friends know, it’s probably good that I’m posting it here and not saying it while at the restaurant…even though I tend to do that normally. I think I’ll start with Parmajit’s Kitchen, a German Indian restaurant in town that I absolutely adore.
I’ve been there now on 3 occasions and every time has been awesome. The first time I went there I had seen some friends dining in there and upon arrival I saw all the delicious food they were eating and decided I wanted in on it. The restaurant is a casual take-out or eat-in , fresh fast food restaurant. I only say fast food in its truest sense, the food was fast and of amazing quality and freshness. I had a wonderful Souvlaki Lamb wrap the first time I was there and it was so juicy, fresh and tasty that I fell in love with the place. The owners are wonderfully friendly and efficient and the nice view out onto the street gives the quiet little establishment a nice atmosphere to it with all the wonderful spices and aromas in the air. The 2nd time I was there I had the butter Chicken Roti Wrap when I was showing Jordi around town, she was stunned at how good the food was. My personal favorite is the Butter Chicken Wrap but I’m sure I’ll be back to try some more of the German food they serve as well when I have some more money. And of course my personal favorite about the place, it’s cheap! The wraps with a little salad was 7 dollars while with some soup or naan bread it was 10. There were plenty of options to add rice and salads and daily soups and wonderful fresh naan bread. For now I’ll give this place 5 stars..or whatever because I have never seen anyone not enjoying food in there, nor have I ever been dissapointed by them.
Cheers, will add some more content soon, sorry about the break in posts, laziness is a bad habit.
