Good but Crazy Times - Touring, Presto Pasta & BlogHer

It's a crazy...good crazy, but crazy none the less. Our friends are spending a few days in Halifax and I'm playing tourist/tour guide. Talk about the blind leading the blind....although, I'm quite impressed with myself. I haven't even gotten us lost once.

In order to get the car to toodle around I need to get my Honey into town before 7:30 AM - you heard me. No groaning out there - it's a good thing. It's the only time I have to do any writing this week. Thank goodness for Starbucks. And don't you love my laptop's background? That smile puts me in a great mood for the whole day. But I'm off topic, yet again.

Today was sunny and hot and brilliant so we ended up taking a tall ship tour of Halifax Harbour, enjoyed a lobster crepe while waiting to board and a leisurely stroll before dinner...not sure where we'll end up.

Yesterday we drove along the Lighthouse Route (that's our friends in front of the famouse lighthouse at Peggy's Cove)- yes, you've heard all about the Lighthouse Route several times. This time at least was sunny and hot. Lots of people were swimming at Cleveland and Queenlands salt water beaches in (I think) St Margaret's Bay. Everyone was having a wonderful time in the surf. But we were in a hurry to get to Lunenburg for a lobster sandwich on the Dockside Terrace overlooking the harbour. I know...the photo sucks! but the sandwich was delicious. What a great life!!!

After a leisurely lunch, we wandered a bit and then headed home to pick up my Honey and go out for dinner in Halifax.

I've already said there will be no cooking this week, but Presto Pasta Night Roundup is Friday, so last night we ate on the terrace at The Argyle (on Argyle, naturally) and I had to have some pasta. What can I say...the lovely lobster ravioli in white wine and garlic cream sauce was delicious. They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but this time, the photo really doesn't do the dish justice. I will have to experiment with this one once I'm really in my own home.

On to crazy, good but crazy number two. I'm off to the BlogHer Conference tomorrow in Chicago and I can't wait. I can't wait to gain new insights and ideas and more importantly...I can't wait to meet some fellow food bloggers whom I've become friends with through our blogs.

If any of you are planning on attending, please let me know. I'd love to hook up with you.

I don't know how much writing I'll be doing over the next few days but I promise to share as much as I can and of course do a Presto Pasta Night Roundup on Friday. You still have a couple of days to make a terrific pasta dish. It's easy to join the fun. Here's how.

I'll catch you when I can and I hope you're all having a crazy - good but crazy week too!
