summer street food



Took a bit of an unplanned blog break last week due to a bit of a fever and summer cold... ugh! Feels good to be back to normal, although I am still feeling really hot due to the heat wave that has stricken our city... phew! I feel like I am melting. Anyhoo, one of our weekend adventures to share with you today. We took the little one to the Summer Night Market on Saturday... ok, well, he slept through most of it in his carrier. Had some yummy Chinese dim sum and Korean bbq on sticks (mmmmm.. meat on sticks) and perused all the stalls selling their wares. Apologies for the odd pics, this was our attempt at balancing baby and trays of food whilst holding a camera. Very tricky eating meat on sticks and not dropping any on baby's head... but we were successful. :)

Sorry you were feeling poorly, but happy to hear you're getting better. I think everyone is looking forward to fall and some cooler weather, this summer was totally extreme !
The sesame seeded kabobs looks delicious...but then it is almost noon here so just about anything would look good right now.

Babies do make life a bit more challenging, but oh so much fun.

I'm happy you're feeling better! Haha. I don't have any children but I can imagine eating over them being a bit tricky. I'm sure he doesn't mind the food drippings. :)

Sorry to hear you weren't feeling well. Those dishes look delicious! It was unbelievably hot and muggy in Ottawa when we were there visiting our families. Now we're back in Winnipeg and the temps are cool.....can't wait for the end of the week when the temps rise again!
