All you need is char!


I have char coming out my ears.

And I love it.

I have been eating it just about every meal and snack for the past couple days.

I finally defrosted what was left of the char I bought for 20 dollars back in the fall... and have been eating it for supper/lunch ever since. And I've been spending the week at the Nunavut Association of Municipalities AGM and they SOMEHOW GOT THEIR HANDS ON ENDLESS SUPPLIES OF SMOKED CHAR.

As I mentioned, I haven't been able to get my hands on any smoked char for over a month now. So I've been scarfing it down at every opportunity... and yesterday... I'm not proud of this... but I took a styrofoam cup and filled it up with char, and kidnapped it for a snack later in the evening.

Hi, my name is Jackie, and I am a char-aholic.

I'm salivating! When we lived in Inuvik I used to buy char from a neighbour who was fishing all winter. Back in those days, I almost got sick of char before spring every year - but now...
I am SO envious!

SHHHH...not so loud. Southerners might hear you and want some too!

BTW, I've used Marche Daoust for three years for my orders and, well, found the service lacking. I now use Marche Central, also, in Montreal, and also carrying wine. They also have been able to answer all my craziest cravings. Daoust is a depaneur (a little store) whereas Central is a full supermarket. I even get Tim Horton's coffee from Central - the big cans. I don't know if they ship to your region but I'd have to say it's worth checking out.

Finally, you can browse their metro flyer online, every Saturday, to see what weekly specials are available to save some cash.

Now for indulgences of a different sort, I use M&M meat in Dorval -right near the airport. You really can't beat the quality of the meat that they sell!
