One of my main issues with moving to Calgary was the fact that I would have to experience a real winter once again. While London and Vancouver are not reknowned for having the best weather (can someone say overcast and rainy?) I really didn’t find either city to be as bad as most people would like to have you believe. I could wear real shoes, my parka was completely useless, and I didn’t need to wear a ski mask walking around the city (yes, I was known to do this all the time during the winter in Montreal. It’s a little scary, but it’s also a lot cold!). So, as October creeps to an end and it is already below zero at night, I am trying to embrace the impending freezing next few months.
This is why I started this food blog. The other day I thought to myself, I wonder if it’s hard to make your own almond milk? A little bit of research later and it seemed like everyone used the same recipe (if you can call it that) and it was beyond simple. All you do is soak some almonds over night and blend them with water the next day. Seriously, that’s all. It’s mind-boggling easy and for me, the best part is, you can flavor it however you want. What a great discovery!
