Many people would call me a picky eater, but when I like something I like it a lot. The most perfect breakfast is either pancakes cooked by my dad with lots of love or waffles cooked by my mom with tons of love. They taste so awesome that I wish I could have that type of breakfast every day! My favourite food for lunch is tea biscuits or chicken noodle soup. I like tea biscuits best because I drown them with Rogers Golden syrup after spreading butter on them. If you would like the recipe for these you can find it in my last post. Chicken noodle soup is my second favourite mostly because my sister always wants perogies or Kraft Dinner and I don’t like either of these. What I like best for dinner is mash potatoes with gravy or fajitas. I always shape my potatoes into a volcano and pretend the gravy is lava running down the sides and if we have broccoli I make believe the broccoli are trees and the lava burns the trees down. The lava burns other vegetables down as well which takes away the bad taste. If you don’t like some vegetables like me try the lava trick.
My most of all favourite thing to eat is the yummy dessert known as Chocolate Pudding Cake! I wish it was a meal because I would have it all the time. It’s chocolate cake that’s hot from the oven with pudding running down the sides. If I know it’s coming I run to the table and if you knew me I usually need to get called at least 3 times before that happens.
Sometimes we go to restaurants. Some of my favourites are Boston Pizza and White Spot. White Spot is great because it has booths with TVs and pirate ships as meal holders. These make my time there really fun. I like going to Boston Pizza on my birthday because they make everyone in the restaurant sing happy birthday to you. Kids like this more than adults, but I still try to get happy birthday sung to my mom and dad because I want to make them feel special.
All this writing makes me feel hungry enough to eat this computer! I better go grab something to eat. I’m wondering what your favourite foods are?

I think my dad is awesome! He’s lots of fun because he knows a lot about board games so I learn to play them with him. My favourite ones are Battlelore, Zooloretto and Settlers of Catan. These games are really different from each other but I enjoy learning strategies to help me win. In Battlelore I like being a rock monster and battling giant spiders, in Zooloretto I like the pandas and building my own zoo, and in Settlers of Catan I like building settlements that I can turn into cities when I get enough resources. My dad owns many more games and really likes playing them. He gets them from specialty game stores or online and most of them are made in Europe. A lot of his games have won different awards too. He finds out if they are good games on a site called Board Game Geek.
He also makes the best tea biscuits ever! They are so fluffy on the inside and delicious. They taste best when they are fresh out of the oven with Rogers Golden syrup. If you’d like to know how to make them here is his recipe:
- 2 cups flour
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1/3 cup shortening
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 cup milk (but my dad uses water because my mom is allergic to milk)
- 3 cups of love
After you mix the ingredients together you bake them at 425 degrees F.
My awesome dad also makes really good pancakes and they’re so delicious that I always have at least two of them, but I often end up having four. He also helps me on video games when I get to a really hard part like on the Boo house in New Super Mario Bros. Wii because he’s really good and his skills are legendary.
My dad travels to places I’d like to see one day and always tells me stories about them when he gets back. He has already been to France, Spain, Italy, and Greece in Europe. He saw the Roman Coliseum and ancient ruins in Rome and the statue of David in Florence, the Parthenon and Temple of Zeus in Athens and the ruins in Delphi, the Eiffel Tower and Louvre in Paris, and the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona. He’s also been to Las Vegas twice. In Las Vegas he was close to the Hoover Dam and Grand Canyon but he didn’t get to travel to them. My dad took photos to show us where he went and he brought back books for the family. He also brought me a yo-yo, a lollipop and a couple of t-shirts. I hope I can travel with my dad when I’m older.
I love my dad he’s really cool. What do you love about your dad?
