For the purposes of making a 'bake' it is canned crab. We do buy king crab legs at the fish stall, but I couldn't bring myself to waste them in a bake format. Just the leg and some melted butter. I don't know how the crab selection differs from that in Vancouver (I shall investigate when I am there) but it had to be said that the selection at the St Lawrence Market is fairly substantial.

Granville Island market, The Lobster Man on Granville Island, and Oinks Boat are the places to go.

If you're staying in a hotel, pop to the lobster man, pick your crab or lobster, he'll kill and cook it for you and you pick it up later to much in your hotel room, the park, beach, or seawall. Lovely!!! It's a great teatime choice

We had pasta with peas, diced ham mushrooms and cream for dinner.

After a trip to the cadaver lab at the med school this afternoon, I couldn't face anything too meaty....

El-richo can I come? Your burgers sound delicious.

I've never been a lobster lover, having only ever eaten them from warm seas. This autumn we went to Alma and bought a lobster a jar of mayo and a loaf of bread. This was an experience. It was that lobster that made me know I could be happy in Canada. Yum, yum.

Baked salmon for me ce soir, on a bed of green beans with black olives, cherry toms and anchovies -a beloved family favourite from Jamie Oliver.

We're having minced beef tacos for our tea tonight. I thought they might be a bit exotic tasting as I never had them before I moved here, but I quite like them now, especially the ones with the flat bottoms that stand up.

We had pork loin in a mushroom sauce with rice and corn. It's a school night. Haute Cuisine is saved for the weekend.

We had home-made goulash soup. Just the thing when you've just come in from the day's second shovelling session.

Not that odd? From 1999... I didn't have a family before that.

Shepherd's pie for me, with Swede and potato topping. Normally a roast on a Sunday, but OH is in Calgary.

soft-boiled eggs and toast-and-marmite soldiers has become something of a Sunday evening tradition in this household. Takes minutes to produce (a good thing after a long day "doing stuff"), and simply adding more toast and jam after the eggy mess has been cleared away makes it easy to adjust for the sprogs' various appetites.

Takeaway ideas? Thai's always a winner for me. Pad Thai in what our local place calls "Bangkok street style" (no idea how authentic it is - major difference to "regular" pad thai seems to be tamarind sauce), or a green curry.

We went with some uninspiring tacos.

I just had a little picnic watching hockey yesterday; French bread and butter, caesar salad, cold bbq chicken and cheese and wine and didn't bother making supper so today I'll have to make the pork and shrimp stir fry but I'm also going to cook cream of leek and potato soup with ham. Leeks are new to me - a friend gave me one a month ago and I had to read up on how to clean and prepare it but I made soup and liked it.

The A&W Sirloin Uncle Burger for $3 is a top value. I had one for lunch and really enjoyed it. They're much tastier than their other burgers.
