Cheeselady’s Gouda Cheese, Glasgow Glen Farm

This weekend was a special one in our home. Our daughter, who is with us temporarily, was celebrating her birthday. We haven’t been together for about 28 years due to the fact we lived in two different Provinces. Let me continue…..

We were watching a cooking show on TV about a week or so ago and the two Chefs travel all over, going from one farm to another gathering produce, meats/poultry, fruits, etc. and then preparing a gourmet meal and inviting all the contributors to get together and enjoy the meal.

They made such a to do about the cheeses they had gathered (Glasgow Glen Farm, P.E.I) who make Beer Gouda, Mustard/Pepper Gouda and the biggest surprise and best ever is the Bluda Gouda. OMG! Not sharing that one and I have never, ever put blue cheese anything in my mouth before. Don didn’t tell us and we thought we were eating the Beer Gouda and I thought it tasted even smoother than the day before. When I said something, he just laughed and told what it was we had just eaten.

Customer Service is a big thing with me and Jeff McCourt excelled. Speed of delivery, not getting upset with an old lady worrying about if it would arrive in time for our big P.E.I dinner, and putting in a little extra puts this company right at the top.

Thank you Jeff and we will be doing this again at Christmas. Just sayin’.

My next review is with more P.E.I. goodies.

Black Bear Pub, Nanaimo

Sometimes accidents turn out to be winners. We were running a few errands yesterday and came across this little pub. It was lunchtime and we all thought we would pop in and see what it had to offer.

We opted to sit outside on a HUGE two tiered deck. All tables were appropriately spaced and the view was really something. You could see the lake from where we were and the green space was like a park.

Now to the good stuff. We ordered beverages as in water, soda water and coffee and had to take our time on choosing what we wanted to eat. After several changes in each of our choices we went for it.

Don ordered the Beef Dip which was so big, he brought half of it home and ate it for supper. Kelly ordered the Black Bear Burger and I ordered the Mushroom Cheese Burger. OMG! They were soooo delicious and the crumbs left behind proved it.

Kelly ordered a Coors to go with her burger and I opted for the Pinot Grigio and it had to be one of the better wines I have had in a restaurant. Not sharp but really nice. I was shocked that the brand was Naked Grape.

Thanks you Kelly for lunch and yes, we could make this a favourite place to ‘pop in’. Our server Kathleen was pleasant, informative and very likeable.
