For the next few days of our trip, I tried out a little new and old.
New food ... a caesar salad with tempeh bits, edamame, sun-dried tomato, jicama, red pepper, napa cabbage and pine nuts. Our friend, Debs, took us to this great restaurant, Fresh on Spadina in downtown Toronto.
Old habits ... Checking out a yarn shop called Lettuce Knit in Toronto.
My favorite husband ever bought this delicious yarn candy for me. Hand Maiden Fine Yarn is hand-dyed in Canada. The skein is made of silk, superwash merino wool and seacell. Someday, it will be a luxurious lacey shawl or scarf.
For the weekend, we crashed at our friend Errol's house, the place of awesome musics and Fluffytron the bunny. Mr. Plate got to collaborate with some of this friends and I got to witness the magic. Go check out the live collab (done in one hour!) "Right on Time" and more by The Cow Exchange in the 50/90 challenge.
Another crafty connection to this trip might be the reason why it took an hour or two to cross the border on our way home. A couple days before we left a woman was busted with 3,000 buttons laced with cocaine. The "fashion designer" was trying to get into the country at the Toronto airport. Good thing we bought yarn, not buttons!
Alas, we were welcomed back to the U.S. of A. After eight hours of driving, we boarded the Lake Michigan car ferry and sailed to Wisconsin.
* And yes, Niagara Falls and Toronto are technically south of Green Bay, Wis.
