Just a taste

There is no shortage of delicious, fresh ( not frozen) seafood in Nova Scotia. Just because it is available here doesn’t mean it’s cheap! My favourite seafood is lobster, scallops, shrimp…and then of course fresh haddock.

So, something I decided when we moved home was that I am going to indulge…ok, maybe enjoy is the better word. I am going to enjoy this tasty goodness that our province is known for whenever I get the opportunity. What that means is it will be my first choice if the price is right and the opportunity to have it is there. It doesn’t have to be in abundance but I will savor and fully enjoy it. BECAUSE that is part of Nova Scotia culture!

All that being said, When James had chance to buy 5 pounds of FRESH scallops, I said YES, please! A little expensive…BUT I made myself ration them out to 6 small bags to make them last and so when we want to, we can have just a taste. I put 5 bags in the freezer…

Adventure For Two

I am from Bridgewater, Nova Scotia, Canada and I'm back from traveling with my husband on an expat assignment to foreign lands. 2011-2012 we were in Shenyang, China. Spring 2012- Spring 2013 we were in Resende,RJ Brazil then back to Shenyang, China in July 2013 until the end of July 2014. Expat life WAS amazing! Adventure abounds no matter where we travel to. We really enjoyed the amazing opportunity to live and experience culture and tradition in these places. BUT now we are finished and adjusting to life in our small town in Canada. Our days of travel and adventure are not over.
