Tag Archives: Brown Drinks

Welcome!

That’s original.  Well, I had to start somewhere.  I’m really not sure about this format but there are limits to the 140 character format so I’m going to give this a try.  I’m no longer constrained by a single focus employer (the Writers Guild) or specific policy goals so my aim with this blog is to, as many people do, chat about what interests me.  Please feel free to comment or engage me on Twitter.  Oh, and what’s with the Butter Tarts and Brown Drinks?  Butter Tarts are one of my fave Canadian things.  Brown Drinks – you know what those are.  You can’t do policy work without them.  So grab a tart or pour yourself a drink and let’s see if we can find some interesting topics to chat about.

Oh and the best butter tart that I’ve ever had were once sold in the North end of the St. Lawrence Market.  They were made with maple syrup and were thick – not runny.  And no raisins.

Update:  I needed a butter tart for the header photo.  Loblaws was all out (shocking!) but I picked up some very tasty ones at Bobbette and Belle.  Verdict – a little runnier than I’d like but yay – no raisins!  Lovely pastry.  The brown drink in the photo is Spice Tree blended Highland scotch that was a birthday gift from my cousin.
