Another rainy day up here in Upstate Country. Made good use of it however. Today was my day to give my new @canonusa camera a good run through and test. I must say, I think it delivers nicely! Always happy with this platform. .

Part of what I love about photography so much is the ability to travel through your memories. The only thing better than that is walking down memory lane in real time. That's what I did yesterday. Walking into @liehsandsteigerwald on Grant was like walking back in time. It still looks the same; smells the same. Oh, and their famous ring bologna - still tastes exactly like the best in the world. .

Even though it was a quick trip, it was worth it. New York City is always going to be a special place for me; the place where I started down my artistic path. Although with little time to spare, we made time for the @meatballers on 53rd St (which was not there when I left). Delicious as always - thank you so much for the great food! .

What's that you may ask? Well it's a meat pie. One of the more interesting and flavorful things I've had for family meal- the best experience of working in a restaurant. Cooking a meal for the staff, then we all sit together and eat. No matter who we are, or where we come from we sit side by side. All of the pieces of the pie come together as one. .

Despite all of this snow I did manage to get out of the house. I had to. Cabin fever was setting in. The drive to the market took longer than I thought but that's expected. What was unexpected was to find one of these beauties. Still early yet but I had to - it was so perfect. .

Being a chef to me is like being an artist. And your medium is an assortment of ever changing colors and flavors. A chef is a sculptor, an architect and a painter all rolled into one. And sometimes, you can catch a glimpse of that thought process. Priceless. .

It's amazing how many things come in different types that we just clump together in one category and call it fruit. Even though, all of these fruits are different, they seem to interact in harmony. Now if only we could take this lesson into politics and society. If only. .

The last stop on the trip was Niagara Falls. Boy, what a true marvel. The power and chaos that emulates from this massive flow of water somehow is peaceful. I definitely had one of those "the world is so much bigger than me" hippie moments.

Today in The United States it is Presidents' Day - so you may have had the day off (or not). In Canada it's Family Day which to me sounds so much more fun, and inviting. As I venture around #Toronto we ended up at the Eaton Center - I saw @newyorkfries and had to get them. They call it a Poutine - fries with sauce, cheese, meat, bacon and green onions. So many options. .

I love the mornings here in upstate New York. They are so peaceful and serene even when we are covered in snow and it's too cold to go outside. My breakfast of champions? A nice hot cup of coffee, something sweet and a really good view. .

The weekend is finally here and if you're like me lately and have been glued to the news, it's been a long week no matter which side you're on. Just don't forget to take a minute (or 10) to remember: remember what's around you, where you come from, who you are, and who helped get you there. Finally, remember that we all need the same things to live and be free. .

Today felt like spring until I reminded myself that it was only January. Even still, things tasted more refreshing today. A cold beer sounded like a good idea today. And some ice cream wasn't a bad idea either. (Taken with the new portrait feature on #iphone7plus)
