Thanksgiving Dinner Without The Fuss

Thanksgiving Dinner Reservations Still Open

What are you doing for this Thanksgiving? We’ve ordered our turkey and I hear it’s being brined and stuffed this year, thanks to Michael. I’ll make a pumpkin pecan pie and head to the Vancouver Farmers Market to sort out some fresh veggies to round out the meal. If you are cooking at home, be sure you’ve got a fresh one and you can order to pick up at 235 East Broadway from my client Home on The Range Organics, knowing it’s free range, medication free and delicious. Ask Chef Allen for some tips and don’t forget the bone broth for the gravy!

AND….If you don’t want to cook, there’s still some spots around town that have a seat or two available.

Brunch at The Flying Pig

Head to Olympic Village For Brunch at The Flying Pig

Olympic Village is no longer the ghost town it first was, and now there’s plenty to choose from when it comes to eating out. When it brunch comes to mind, however, we’ve recently been sold on the menu at The Flying Pig.

Flying Pig

While the name implies a heavy, meaty menu, and there’s plenty of pork should you wish, there’s also lots of lighter fare such as the trout salad that I enjoyed at brunch. The Flying Pig refers to the restaurant as a “nouveau Canadian Bistro”… offering a simple, seasonally inspired menu with fresh, local ingredients at a great value. They’ve got a great happy hour and now I can confirm the brunch is worth getting up early for, although it goes well into the afternoon.

You can start with a wholesome smoothie, or perhaps “Gramma’s Bloody Caesar” with Sriracha, and the coffee’s good and strong. There’s “Tree Huggers Granola”, a Croque Monsieur, smoked salmon benny, French Toast and more among the breakfast listings, and lots of sides too. I ordered from the lunch selections and choose the Blackened Steelhead Trout with couscous and avocado salsa.

Around the table there was everything from eggs to braised short rib macaroni and many saved room for dessert.

Great service and a central location near the sky train station or within walking distance for us on a sunny day make this a location we’ll be back to try.
