Bits & Pieces from PEI

I haven’t vlogged in a while but here are some bits and pieces from my trip to PEI. I ended up taking more photos than video.

The Big Orange Lunchbox

50 Shades of Pork
While in PEI, we did a ridiculous amount of eating and I thought some places deserved their own posts. One of these places was The Big Orange Lunchbox.

Chalkboard Specials We happened to be in PEI during Porktoberfest and there was plenty of options for the pork lover here. I thought I’d go all out and get what was named as the 50 Shades of Pork (pictured at top of post). It was an island pork chorizo patty, topped with BBQ pulled pork, tomato bacon jam, carmelized onions, fried mozarella sticks and mustard aoli. This thing left me in a delcious coma but it was all worth it.

Scallop Burger Nash and I kind of fought over who would order the 50 Shades of Pork but ultimately I ended up winning. Anyways he ended up getting something totally different and got the scallop burger. We weren’t sure if it was going to be scallops grinded in a patty or not but it turns out there were a couple of juicy fresh ones between the bun.

If we stayed longer in PEI, we probably would have visited this place like 10 more times as the menu had so many other goodies to eat!

The Birches

The majority of my PEI trip involved wedding-related activities. The wedding took place at the PEI Brewing Company. We spent some time there making necessary preparations and I snapped a few photos during regular hours:

The family of the bride and groom rented out cottages for the week. The view from there was peaceful and beautiful.

The night before the wedding the girls booked a hotel room. The staff built us towel swans with hearts.

I had a great time in PEI. I hope to be back in the East Coast soon to do more exploring (and eating)! I couldn’t leave without buying these:

I’m in PEI!

PEI 2014

Nash and I are currently in Prince Edward Island for my best friend’s wedding next weekend. We had a little bit of time to explore over the past few days, so here’s what we did so far.

Sir John A Beer
We tried Gahan Craft Beer. This Honey Wheat Ale had a nice sweetness to it. This could possibly be the most Canadian looking beer.

Breakfast
The next morning we had breakfast at Phinley’s, where poutine for breakfast is a thing!

PumpkinsWe then went to a pumpkin patch to pick a few up. We got some decent sized ones for only $3!

Angry HayI enjoyed these bales of hay in the form of Angry Birds.

Laura and a Pumpkin We considered a gigantic pumpkin for a moment.

MaddieLaura has two sweet cats which were adopted. This is Maddie.

BellaAnd this is Bella.

Here are more random cat photos:

RibsHomemade ribs.

On Saturday we went to see Rich Aucoin at the PEI Brewing Company. We happend to walk in when an art battle was just ending. Aucoin himself was painting something!

2014On Sunday, we explored downtown Charlottetown. This year, they celebrated the 50 year anniversary of the 1864 Canadian Confederation Conference. Here is Laura and I with a gigantic 2014.

Cruise ShipThis cruise ship looked rather familiar.

A CowHow could we go to the east coast without visiting a Cows Icecream?

The weather was warm over the weekend so we had a chance to walk along the water and in town.
