Choo-Choo-Chew

So I was trying to think back on my eats and happenings since my last post during my trip, and wound up back on Thursday.  The day after the big Keg feast for Mom’s birthday.

I didn’t take a breakfast photo so it must not have been anything exciting or worth mentioning.  I’m going to guess it was either a bowl of cereal or a Larabar or something.  Oh!  That reminds me…look what I found while shopping at Mom’s local grocery store!!

Coconut Creme Pie!!

(friggin expensive though so I only got four)

In the afternoon I hopped the train for a ride back to Victoria.  On the way there I got Mom to stop at my absolute favorite little restaurant in Nanaimo…Delicado’s.  I’ve mentioned the Victoria location in previous posts, but Nanaimo was the original and is still the best by far.  Southwestern yumminess!!  They have a zillion other things on their menu, but I’ve been ordering the chicken rollup since about 1993 so I’m not about to change now!

It comes in a range of heat but I always go for medium-minus.  A little tastier than mild, but not as much chipolte as medium.  I asked for extra sunflower sprouts because I think they are the best part!  It’s also filled with cheese and their own pico mix…which has black beans, corn, carrots, rice, seasonings, etc.  Deeeee-freaking-lish!

The lady next to me on the train was probably hating me with my fabulous smelling lunch!

I also got a yummy “deli-bar” for old times sake.  It’s peanuts in a soft caramelly type stuff, topped with chocolate.  Drool.

It was a beautiful day for a train ride.  The sun was out and everything was soooo green.  A great way to travel if you have the time.

What is the deal with those Coconut Cream Pie LaraBars anyway? When I first discovered LaraBars in my usual grocery store they had 4 flavors - the coconut & the key lime pie being my favorite of the 4. So when I saw people talking about how hard it was to find them I thought it was strange because if my little store had them they should be everywhere! Except now they don't anymore...And at first I could get them out at the bigger store (that I hardly ever go to) but I was there Saturday and they don't have them there any more either. Where did they go?

Sorry for the big long rant on your blog, but I think I had to get that off my chest...

OK, WHERE can you get larabars other than at Costco?? The only ones I've been able to find are at Costco and just the pecan pie, cherry pie, apple pie flavour! I want to try more flavours so I'm dying to know where else I can get them in B.C.!!

Scenery on the island is GORGEOUS! I'm making my first ever trip to Victoria on Canada Day weekend and I can't wait!!

Gorgeous pics! I'd love to visit there someday.

Hey I popped into PO during my lunch hour and they were just putting out their fresh larabar stock and low and behold I had first crack at the coconut cream pie :-) Mmmmmm!
