Happy Birthday to me!

Well its my birthday today, and its been very special, more and more I love Amie, and the little things she does, she bought me a really cool blue and white stipe Apron, and a very cool North Face Jacket. Others got me cool things, mostly to do with food.

My mom and dad were out here this weekend and they bought me a Ice cream cake from Dairy Qween, and tonight I was about to get it, as we took a break in our home groups (Study Projects) I went out to the freezer to get it, and as I was about at the door, Christine was comeing out of the Laundry room with a even bigger Ice cream cake, it was really funny, because I was going to get my cake. I love Icecream Cakes from Diary Qween, the ones with the chocolate fudge in the inside.

So I had a wonderful day, thank you all, for the cards and phone calls. To my Family for calling and singing to me, and getting more and more excited about the wedding. Oh I'm so excited!

I'm in Canada!

Well just so you all know, I'm back home today. We had a wonderful time, we spent lots of time together and we visited her whole family.

We went to Blackpool for the day with Evie and Beth, it was lots of fun we went on the Pepsi Max, a rollercoaster and Valhalla which we needed the plastic bags for, we all went on it and we were all very brave! It was fun. Blackpool was fun, not so clean but good. And we really injoyed our fast food that day with McDonald’s and KFC and the fair food, cotton Candy and so much more.

We went to Whales to visit Amies brother Nigel and Beth and kids, it was fun to see where they live, we went to a castle to look around it was neat to see some history!

We also saw Adam and Rachelle and Kids it was good to see them, we made some glasses for our selves. Don't we look good!
The trip was great; we really enjoyed our selves a lot. I got back today and will be working in the morning. It will be good, but would love to be in England, oh well I'll have to go again! If Amie doesn't mind me coming again.

I'm in England!

On Monday at 3:30 I got dropped off at the floatplane dock and got in. I flew over to Vancouver for a 6:30 flight, well every other time I have gone on the floatplane its gone strait to Vancouver but this time it had to go to two different Islands, which took a little more time than I had thought it would, we landed in Vancouver and as we were pulling up to the dock, they were pulling the planes out of the water which I knew was going to delay me even more since they close the road when they do that.

Well I got over to the airport in the end and checked in, I thought I would have to run to the gate because I thought when going through security would take a long time, but when I got there their was no line up at all. So I walked over to my gate and hung out till we boarded the plane. When I got in the plane was empty well almost any way, I had a couple of seats for my self, which was very nice to be able to relax. It was like first class with out the good food and drinks, but very relaxing. We landed on time and I got over to terminal one and waited to fly over to Manchester. I arrived early in Manchester so I was out ready to be picked up by Amie’s mom.

As we were driving home we were talking about how I might surprise Amie, well I have to say I ran many Ideas through in my mind. I decided to surprise her by calling her on a cell phone and then we would talk for a bit and I would walk in to her room and then she would see me.

So we got home before Amie, so Helen let me into the house with her cell phone, and she went to pick Amie up from work. When they got home I use the cell phone to call Amie at home, I told that I wasn't feeling well, and I was up early (because in Canada it would have been 9 in the morning) so I thought I would call her. At this point she thinks I'm with my roommate Scott in a condo in parksville. Well then we talked and as that was going on I started to walk up to her room, as I was walking through the kitchen her mom coughed and Amie asked who was that, and I told her it was Scott. (Because that’s who I told her I was with for mid term) and she said to me, "Scott coughs like a girl!" (Sorry Scott), Then she said, "If I didn't know better I'd think you were with a girl!" Which is when I walked in the room saying, "I am with a girl" It took a while to hear her say anything, and she tried to pinch her self, and I was still there.

It was good to be able to surprise her this way, she is at work right now, I know she likes her job but I think she would rather be with me right now, but she will be home for lunch soon and then tonight we can go out or maybe stay in because I'm sick.

I asked her a while ago what she wanted for her birthday, and she said all she wants is me for her birthday, well happy birthday and valentines as well, but just so you know I did buy her some things for her birthday.

That’s it for now.

The art of food~

I love food, I love eating food, looking at food, and making it. I love making it look good. There is nothing more exciting to me than a plate that looks really cool with sauces and different colors that make a plate shine.

This picture I took at the Sooke Harbor House, at first glance they look like flower arrangements but really they are very fancy meals on a plate. As a chef you always want to do different things, adding colors that change the way it looks. Sauces that change the taste. The meat can be the same, and yet it could taste so different, depending what you do with it.

I love food, one of the things that I really like is going to town, like today I went on what we call Town run, were I buy food for the school, What I really like about it is I see all the ingredients and I can touch them, and smell, and really know if I want to use them. The Market is great; I love to buy vegetables from there. Safe of Foods is great not only because I see new products that we can use but also because the people that work there are great, today they gave me 9000 extra save on more points, yeah they really like me.

I love the new places that I find as well Like Amie and I's favorite bakery, its called the True Grain Bakery we love it, they make all there own bread. Organic grain that they mill them selves, the bread is so good. They make the best Chocolate buns.

I also love cheese, mmm so good, fresh goats milk cheese, there is a place I found one day its called Hillary’s cheese, and this man makes all his own cheese.

More and more I hope to find more places like the bakery and cheese place to find more local and 'Organic' ingredients now as most of you know I'm not a Organic kind of guy, but I do like the Idea of it, and today as I hear on the news the government is trying to make it more consistent. I never believed that it was consistent. I found it hard to buy Organic butter for $8 instead of $4 per pound when you can't really taste the difference.

I love food, I get excited about it, but you know who I love, Amie, I love Amie I love talking to her, seeing her, spending time with her she is so wonderful to me, she is the most wonderful thing thats happened to me. Thank you Amie for being so good and special to me.
