In the Park Hotel in Voorburg last night, they have an excellent dining in the summer outside on their garden terrace.

I'm not allowed? Am I appropriating Asian and South Asian culture?
If I recall you flew to underserviced parts of the country as part of your job. I'm just surprised you are able to find these places in those areas.

Or maybe I eat at these restaurants when I am in civilization?

I assumed they were work meals because you're dining alone but perhaps you're like me and you go out alone on your leisure time.
I am in civilization far more often than I am out. These are regular workday lunches in Saskatoon.

I remember a lovely Irish Chinese place in Buncrana. Takeaway and restaurant. Waitress was a red haired colleen in a silk kimono.

You could have rice or potatoes with your meal. Or half and half.

So is the Canadian equivalent of “flyover country” not regarded as “civilisation”? I have not visited the bits between Toronto/Niagara Falls and Calgary. Might be flat, but looked to have some interest on Portillos TV Rail programme. Special prize-winning wheat seed developed to withstand the short growing season etc. Alberta beef?

What’s wrong with traditional meat and two veg anyway? When did trying different food become a source of entertainment - after people started to get fat ? Or was that novelty takeaway chains and fizzy drinks that caused it?

I would not regard that fat bar steward with dyed hair who presents ‘diners and dives’ as a guardian of “civilisation”. Quite the reverse in fact.

zwiebelrostbraten - seared entrecote, gravy, fried onions - there is also a version, where it is seared as a roast.

despite the chicken, which is more of a fusion dish to the viennese cuisine, you had a good variety of staples. well done.

Northern Saskatchewan rural and remote First Nations communities with no places to eat except for packets of crisps and pop at the gas station if they have one. Roaming packs of wild dogs, boil water advisories, forest fires, endemic suicide, substance abuse and sexual abuse, sexual assault. No banks, no docs, kids don't go to school. Almost the entire population on welfare. Not quite the equivalent of Canadian civilization.

If I had known how phenomenal this was I would have taken the picture before I ate two pieces.

* a large 12 oz glass of 7 day old alfalfa trees that have been juiced
* numerous glasses of blended apples with protein powder mixed in (to be had 30 minutes after my juice).

Got loads of apple meals and greens to juice this week, and also loads of fermented sprout seed pastes.

My drinks and meals often take 1 week to prepare. Why? Because l have to grow them first.

I use both a juicer and a blender, and they are both BIG daddies. Due to my heavy use of a blender and juicer, and the fact that l grow my food, l have treated myself to really great equipment. When it comes to juicers and blenders, one can't really skimp.

1). Vitamix blender (best thing l have ever bought, I use it numerous times each day)

2). Angel juicer 7500. True luxury.

3). Manual wheatgrass juicer. I use this to juice weeds because weeds are so tough that they jam electric juicers.

4). 50 cent plastic juicer for oranges


I hope you drink the pulp /fibre too.
Only when l make orange juice. Never when l make green juice, l always strain it....no-one wants green juice with bits in it. When l blend l do get all the fiber in that.

Some steak action in the Del Naviglio district of Milan with a colleague:

Also a good place for the pre-dinner aperitif buffets that are extremely good value if you're a budget. Pay for your drink and get your food for free.
