    Graeter' - Ice Cream - Butter Pecan

    I wonder if it has to do with the chocolate or some kind of mix-in issue?- the Butter Pecan is oil free.
    Check out my blog. Hope to share lots of great recipes and ideas!

      The only thing that Timmies coffee has going for it is consistency. On a road trip, you can stop there and be sure that you will get the same mediocre coffee as at any other location. It's sometimes a safer bet than the hotplate mystery coffee at the gas station. I haven't ordered anything but black coffee there in ages (my usual was double cream, but I've finally adapted to straight-up coffee).

      Even worse was travelling in Ontario last year when it seemed like every place you got a coffee was trying to emulate Tim Hortons. It took about a week before I finally found decent stuff--and I do not consider Starbucks to be good coffee, so please don't even suggest it as an alternative.

      I whined so much that for Christmas this year, my sweetie gave me an unbreakable french press and a hand-operated burr grinder from MEC so that I can make decent coffee when we travel. The even sweeter thing is that he is allergic to coffee, so that was entirely about making me happy.

        Where do all of the yolks go that have been separated from the whites? An egg yolk sandwich, now you're talking.
        Wheat is the new tobacco. Spread the word.

          "Look at us trying to eat right!"

          (Yes. Trying. And failing.)
          I was at a Goodlife Gym the other day taking in a Body Pump class and two instructors came up to me after to chat. One said to me " You have such great arms! What's your secret... it's diet right?" And I said " yes...I'm on a high fat/high protein diet. Lots of healhty fats, avocado, eggs...". The other instructors said "You mean eggs white right?" I said "no...I eat the whole egg". She looked at me like I had two heads! I said "I stopped eating sugar and bread a year ago". One said...yeah I should do that and walked away... (you know she won't!)

          I've been going to the same gym for 2 years... most of the regulars are on low calorie/work out like crazy regimes and have seen no noticeble change since they started. Isn't that the definition of insanity?

            I have always, always, had terrible eating habits, but there were two places I refused to eat: Subway and Tim Hortons. I had decided very early on, as a teen, that both establishments serve terrible tasting food that I could have made at home for a fraction of the price and made somewhat tasty.

            Tim Hortons food is nothing but bagels, crappy sandwiches, and itty bitty bowls of soup. I don't consider 'treat' junk food like doughnuts to be food.

            Oh, and my local Tim Hortons shares a roof with a Cold Stone Creamery ice cream store, just double trouble now.
            Those bowls of soup are just nuked Campbell's soup anyway. And they make terrible tasting coffee.

            I traveled last month (all month) what did I bring along? my bag of whole beans and my peugeot hand grinder. I love that I am not the only one dedicated to making good coffee.

              I'm so glad I gave up Tim Hortons. The coffee is shite. Those breakfast sandwiches were a fav though.

              Every once in a while, I get a whiff of an everything bagel with whatever faux butter they use...and it still smells good.

              Do not allow yourself to become wrapped up in a food 'lifestyle'. That is ego, and you are not that.
