What I Ate At Hillside

Hillside was full of so many local eats. Here’s what I ate over the weekend.


Flying Chesnut Kitchen had a dozen oysters for $20 so I had 2 dozen on the weekend. They were PEI oysters and super fresh.


Of course you can’t visit Flying Chesnut without having an Indian Taco! They even had breakfast ones in the morning with sausage and eggs.


Rodolfo’s Rebel Foods had a chimichanga platter with salad and nachos!


Delicious liquid chocolate was available at ChocoSol. It was served cold to cool patrons off from the hot weather.


Two Men and a Grill had bahn mi sandwiches that used kimchi as the pickled vegetables.


I bought this random giant pickle from a guy selling giant pickles.


I couldn’t resist getting a grilled corn at Sausage Brothers.


The ChocoSol stand also had delicious tamales topped with fresh vegetables and roasted pumpkin seeds.


Cashew chicken, mango salad and rice from LemonGrass Thai Food.


Lastly, I couldn’t resist getting a full order of nachos from Rodolfo’s.

Now a few more days until I eat the next festival away!

New Glasses!


I haven’t worn glasses in years, which is strange because in grade 5 I would have trouble seeing the chalkboard. Then one day in high school, I decided not to wear them or I lost them (I honestly don’t know why I stopped wearing glasses) and the rest seems to be history.

Weirdly, my eyes seems to have improved. I had my eyes checked and my prescription has actually gone down! I didn’t think that was a thing that was possible. Maybe I ate too many carrots or something.

Anyways, I bought myself a new pair of glasses with my prescription and I think I look 10 years older in them.


Slept The Day Away


We got back from Hillside today and I was so exhausted I took a nap that lasted 7 hours! I felt like I slept the day away, but I needed it. Back to work tomorrow and Sappy Fest for the weekend!

Stay tuned for photos from Hillside.


Happy Hillside!

I don’t know if there is some tradition but everyone here says “Happy Hillside” to everyone else!

It’s almost like the beginning of a scary movie except not! It’s so welcoming. I’m currently at the last night so catch up with you soon. 

We’re at Hillside 

We’re at Hillside this weekend. There’s no Pokemon Go here but we are having a blast checking out music and getting to chill in the lake. If you are here too come say hi!
