La Casa Gelato

Welcome to another Food Sunday post.  Before I get started, I would like to wish all the mothers out there a Happy Mother’s Day.  I hope all of you had a wonderful day filled with joy, laughter and lots of food.   Today we said goodbye to cloudy and muggy days and welcomed the warm bright sunshine – there was not a cloud in the sky.  It was a perfect day to share a frozen treat or two with your mommy.

I did not get to share a frozen treat with my mom OR little one today.  BUT, I did take my little one out for gelato the other week (she can’t be having too many treats).  My husband suggested to go to La Casa Gelato and so we did.  I am always down for a good scoop of ice cream or gelato – anything sweet, really.  I have never been to this place so I did not know what to expect.  I was quite overwhelmed when I entered the shop because there were SO MANY flavours to choose from.  They had your typical vanilla, strawberry and chocolate to something very unfamiliar like basil and sumac which you can have in either a waffle cone, wafer cone, dipped cone or a cup.  Fortunately, I was able to try well… almost everything before finally settling down for amaretto and cherry.

Things to do in Oregon

Every year, my family and I pack up our cars and drive down south to Portland, Oregon for a couple of days for religious purposes. In those many years that we have gone, we never once ventured out the city to see what Oregon has to offer. But, this year we changed it up a bit and decided to stay a few more days to explore Oregon. To be honest, I wasn’t expecting much since the state have very similar foliage, weather and landscape to British Columbia. So, A LOT of pine trees, mountains and beaches.
