I went to Tuc Craft Kitchen near gas town to meet an old friend of mine who I knew when I was a kid growing up in Ontario. My parents owned a gas station near Lake Simcoe. Along the lake a lot of the homes were cottages from wealthy Toronto residents who summered at Lake Simcoe. We gave them gas, mail and my dad fixed their cars or boats. It was a great spot. My girlfriend was the child of a divorced couple whose dad owned a cottage. She like me was the youngest of her siblings and had no one to play with. This is where I came in. Every summer I would go and stay at her cottage with her and her dad. We had a blast getting into all kinds of things but for me it was a great memory. (what little I can still remember.) Anyway she is doing a north american tour in her motorhome and had time to visit with me. It was great.
Getting back to Tuc Craft kitchens. The server was super friendly and I ordered the most popular item which was beef brisket and pork crackling sandwich served with smashed french fries. I changed the fries to a salad and was a little disappointed. I just came back from Germany where the salads are quite spectacular. These are side salads not main courses. Here it only seems that you get a half decent salad when it comes as a main. Also everyone uses the same salad greens that come out of a box or bag. It’s the same boring mix that you get for home. I hate ordering salad because I feel that I can make a better one at home for less money. I also bought some seeds of valerianella locusta which is corn salad. (dark green spinach like leaves) It is super healthy and grows in cold weather. Hopefully my seeds will work.
