Day 2: Rested Up

Posted by Ann Roberts at 8:00 PM
After a little "online time," I sat down to read a book. The first book that I finished during the convention was Got You Number by Stephanie Bond. This was a book that SandDanz hand-delivered for me to borrow. The good news is that it will now be leaving Toronto with her!

Dinner tonight was at Ethiopian House at 4 Irwin Street thanks to a recommendation from Ri. I had the Vegetarian Sampler which included things like spicy split peas, chickpeas rich in garlic sauce, smooth roasted potatoes, and crunchy collard greens...and of course a serving (very LARGE) of Injera. For those of you who don't know, Ethiopian restaurants don't have utensils...you scoop all of the food up with a bread called Injera. Although, it isn't really a bread...it is more of an undercooked oversized tortilla...really hard to describe so that it sounds good.

I took some books to release with me but I was afraid my waitress would return them to me so I didn't release them. I was going to stop by the hotel lounge and leave them but the doors were locked at 10:45 and I couldn't get in. Well fine...I'll save them for another day.

I'm currently reading The Kitchen Witch by Annette Blair...another book borrowed from SandDanz that I expect she'll take back with her! :)

I love Ethiopian food so tasty and yummy !!! Although it's not really date worthy as no one looks really elegant eating with their fingers and the injera. Next time I'm in Toronto, I'll try that one !

Enjoy your stay in Canada, Ann !

I have to agree on how fabulous Ethiopian food tastes! We have one here in Kitchener-Waterloo and it's one of my favourite places to go out to eat. That and Mongolian grilled food. Yum!

WELCOME to our fair city!

Maybe we'll get to meet during the break tomorrow.
