Good morning. I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I was MIA last week because Jason and I left out early Monday morning to spend 4 days in Whistler. We went for Jason’s work so there was equal amounts of work and play, although the play part far exceeded our time. It’s rare to get away just the two of us and we very much enjoyed our time in a new to us place. We spent the past week interacting with other adults, enjoying delicious food and drinks, and skiing.

We stayed at the Fairmont ,located in Whistler village, and all we had to do was walk out of our hotel to get on the slopes. It was perfect. All of the catered meals provided by the hotel were excellent and the night we had dinner at the restaurant onsite was my favorite from the week. I highly recommend staying here if you ever plan to make a trip to Whistler.

We arrived last Monday evening just in time for a quick shower before heading downstairs for a company welcome dinner for all the guest. The highlight of the meal was the salmon station with smoked salmon and several different types of salmon jerky. How stunning is this spread?!

Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday was spent exploring Whistler and skiing. I’ve been skiing out west several times and Whistler is my favorite to date. There’s so much mountain to cover and after two days we still didn’t see it all.

Like I mentioned, we really lucked out with the restaurants we ate at and the food that was served at some of the events. Everything I had was really good and apparently the Canadians share my love for beets, based on some of my food choices.Picture from Nomad Event Photography

Jason’s company rented out the Barefoot Bistro Wednesday night, home to the worlds coldest vodka tasting room. At -25 degrees Fahrenheit it was FREEZING, literally, and quite the experience for sure.

The only downside to the trip was the amount of time it took to get there. We spent all of Monday and Friday traveling to and from, and even with our 4 am wake up call the three hour time difference didn’t get us home until after 10 Friday night. Needless to say, we didn’t do much this weekend other than sleep, laundry and lots of cuddles with the kids.


A quick reminder our second cookbook club link up party is on Wednesday. We’re cooking from Yotam Ottolenghi book Jerusalem
