Met up with Jane in Orillia on Wednesday. It was my bright idea to park by the water front.......didn't realize we would be plagued with midges/flies, oh well never mind. Forgot we had to do a mountain climb/ hike to the restaurant, which was hard work when your mouth is going ten to the dozen the whole time.....oh well never mind!!! I know I could have kept my mouth shut, but we had plenty to talk about.
Anyhow made it to the restaurant The Brewery Bay, in one piece. Jane had eaten here before and as she is a vegan a lot of places don't cater to vegans and this place does. So after a potty break we sit down and study the menu. Jane decided to have a veggie burger with fries:
Me, well I ordered the soup and salad meal, which consisted of cauliflower and ham soup and goat cheese and candied walnut salad. Jane took a photo of me looking in wonderment/disgust at the size of the cheese.
Now when our server dropped off our meal, it was minus the plate to the right with the round thing on it. We both heard the word puck and I'll be right back. She came back with the plate on the right and announced it was the goat cheese puck? I of course spoke before I really thought what I was saying and said "is that it?" Yep that was the goat cheese. Now to be fair it was really good and I did enjoy it, although the soup had a bit of a kick in it, however Jane pointed out there were flecks or red in the soup, so maybe that had something to do with the heat. I didn't have my glasses on so didn't notice them.
After having the meal we popped in next door and had a stroll around the downstairs store called Apple Annie's and we drooled over many things..........well I drooled over the fudge and chocolate. I saw these mixes that were made with Bean flour? I have never heard of bean flour before and thought it was very interesting.
I found the web site for this product and it has some neat recipes on there and gluten free.
We then decided to have a coffee. Jane of course had a Soy Latte (icky) and I had a Chocolate Orange Latte, which I must say was too sweet for me.
Now here is a photo of Jane taking a photo of the drinks, I wish I had, had the camera out before as I thought Jane was taking a photo of the table cloth!!!! It turned out she is not as potty as I thought she was; she was just seeing what the light was like to take a photo..............me not being as technical just pointed and clicked and prayed it all turned out fine!!!
Mine of course is the one with chocolate on it:
Our day didn't end there, oh no, but I feel I will carry on with our adventure tomorrow, as we had a lot of fun.
I will say that one store owner couldn't believe we had only met for the first time in person that day, she thought we had been friends for years.............
