Soooooooo we broke a record with the heat in Toronto yesterday. The hottest July 6th we’ve ever had, beating the previous record set in 1988. SAVE ME!!!!!
We had stuffed peppers on our meal plan yesterday but there was no way I was turning the oven on. Forget it. I wondered if I could put stuffed peppers on the BBQ. I took the question to Twitter (which is where you should take all of your questions ).
Twitter decided yes, you could cook stuffed peppers on the BBQ.
The filling was:
- diced tomatoes
- nutritional yeast
- green onion
- fresh oregano (from the garden!)
After dinner I headed out to meet Dani for a walking date. She moved to my neighbourhood months ago and we hadn’t been able to meet up because of our school schedules. Dani took me to a path that she found in our neighbourhood and we got to walking and talking.
We walked, and walked and walked. It was so nice to be around the trees. Living in the city can be so concrete-y right?
Eventually we didn’t know where we were. Very surprisingly we came across this:
We accidentally walked to Evergreen Brick Works. It’s kind of far from our neighbourhood. It’s a wonderful green area, community centre, farmer’s market type of place. (Actually Brad and I were planning on riding our bikes there today but he has a flat and it’s raining.)
I hadn’t been to Brick Works all season and Dani hadn’t been there ever. We were very excited! We saw bunnies and a frog jumped across me on a path and it scared the crap out of me. We couldn’t poke around too much since dusk was setting in so we hit the trail to get back to the street.
Our walked ended up being two and a half hours. WHOA! My legs were totally burning when I got home and sat down. Soon after I had to go to bed, I was knocked out. (I had already done a sweaty 20k ride at 2pm yesterday which was the hottest time of the day, silly me!)
Do you ever get lost on walks? Do you have some great green spaces in your city?
