Tag I'm It for Twenty Third Post Meme

Cath at A Blythe Palate (a wonderful site) has tagged me for this fun meme.

Here's what to do:
1. Delve into your blog archives.

2. Find your 23rd post (or close to it) Mine was a pure recipe so I didn't think "1 can chick peas (19 oz/540 ml), rinsed and drained" very interesting so I chose my 25th post.

3. Find the fifth sentence

4. Post the sentence with these instructions and ponder it for hidden meanings, what you were thinking/doing at the time.

5. Tag five people to do the same.

Twenty fifth post: St Lawrence Market - Part Two
Fifth sentence: "So today I thought I'd mention some of my favorite hidden treasures in the lower level".

What fun just checking out what I was thinking back at the beginning - not so long for me, since I only started blogging at the end of May. But still. I hoped to have my blog focus not just on recipes and cookbooks but also on what's happening at local markets - and not just the one or two I usually go to but many in the surrounding region. Somehow, I haven't gone to nearly as many as I hoped I would.

This was the second post about St Lawrence Market, the largest in Toronto and housing way too many vendors to focus on in one post. I love the lower section of the market because it's where many of the "specialty shops" can be found. That's where the jewels hidden beneath the bustling top floor of fishmongers, butchers, grocers and cheese shops reside. It's filled with treasures like fine hand made chocolates, honey from New Zealand, ready to heat gourmet delicacies and fabulous fast food from around the world. And every time I go there I find something new and wonderful.

So I'm going to tag
Stephen at Stephen Cooks
Shauna at Glutenfree Girl
Jocelyn at Kuidaore
Molly at Orangette
One Whole Clove

Because I enjoy reading their posts and would love to know what they were thinking back when....

Hey, I tagged you too! You're so popular. The St. Lawrence Market sounds like Pike Place, one of my favorite Seattle places.

My daughter spent a little time in Toronto a few years back and decided she was actually a Canadian and Toronto was her long-lost hometown. She even says things like "aboot" (about) now. Pretty funny.

Hey, I guess great minds think alike.

Glad to hear your daughter liked Toronto. I guess you'll all have to come back and we can visit.
