Poutine has got to be one of the most sinister inventions of man, but how can you avoid it when you’re in Montreal? Stop me before this indulgence gets out of hand!

It’s been many years since I’ve had IKEA’s signature meatballs and though I never understood what the big deal was, I gotta admit that they’re pretty good. I made the mistake of ordering a large portion, thinking that it came with 15 meatballs while really it came with 21. Oh well, I could finish it since I was so hungry anyway – throw in that cheesecake too, please!
Huế, Vietnam, taken on December 27, 2015
When you say circle, I think of food…probably because of the Circle Foods song that I was so addicted to. The song’s got it right with pizzas and cookies and burgers, but it’s missing bánh bèo Huế! This was one dish in a cooking class that I took part in during my stay in the city of Huế in Vietnam. It is a gelatinous rice cake with minced shrimp, garlic, and scallions, served with a very spicy chili dip. It was mentioned that 80% of the people who took part in learning how to make this dish didn’t like it because of the gelatinous texture of the rice cake. As for me, I belonged to the 20% that liked it. Bon appetit!
