I love the Brooklyn Flea. This year we snacked on a Japanese basil onigiri from Rice + Miso and drank a cucumber and mint lemonade from Dosa Royale. Afterwards we visited Prospect Park, where Leo bought jam at the local greenmarket, followed by ice-cream at Van Leeuwen in Greenpoint. Not a bad way to spend the day in Brooklyn.

I spent the summer eating a lot of ice-cream (Leo can attest to that), but no milkshakes. This was quickly remedied with an after work snack at The Big Chill on Monday. We don’t think it’s the best ice-cream place in Toronto, but it’s close to where I work. (The sweltering heat did not motivate.) There’s plenty of flavours to choose from, but most of them are just okay. (Do not go for the pistachio kulfi, just don’t.) We tried the brownie toffee crunch and coconut milk ice-creams for our shake. It would have been considerably better with a shot or two of bourbon…
As it’s the last week of August, I have great plans to go through my summer to-do list. We’ll see. I might just end up painting my nails a bright colour or going to the library to
pay my fine pick up another magazine book to read. Here’s to the beginning of the end of summer!
