I came across this article yesterday from the Globe and Mail, which I found interesting. Aside from tasty dishes, what influences your decision to dine at particular restaurant? Would you be more inclined to eat somewhere if they publicized concern for animal welfare, try to be environmentally-conscious, or concentrated on a certain ethnicity for political reasons?
St. John's Bakery, and I enjoyed many Smile Cookies, but both are influenced by charitable causes. I promised to visit Lucien with a friend, and the localvore feel of the menu really interests me. However, politics and food? I've never given it much thought.
I made a creamy vegetable soup yesterday - the first time I've ever done something like that! I usually stick to making Korean soups or basic stocks with meats and vegetables. It was completely unintentional and turned out great. Will share soon. I'm still a stranger to so many basics in the kitchen, but I feel like I'm learning and I am not afraid to experiment!

|Look J, I even had a picture in my summer archives!|
|Meant to be? :P|
I wish you a tasty and wonderful Thursday!
