If you follow me on Instagram, you would see in my IG Stories that yesterday I received a pretty neat surprise at lunch. Tourism Richmond delivered some freshly made dumplings from a number of Richmond restaurants. Why, you ask? There’s now a Dumpling Trail in Richmond!

On August 10, the popular Pirate Pak Day returns to White Spot! This is the only day of the year when the adults get to order their own Pirate Pak. For each Pirate Pak sold on that day, White Spot will donate $2.00 to Zajac Ranch for Children.

White Spot will be serving a limited menu on August 10. The Adult Pirate Pak menu has changed slightly this year; you’ll have 5 options: the Legendary Burger, Bacon Cheddar Burger, Mediterranean Chicken Burger, Sriracha Portobello Veggie Burger or Sriracha Goat Cheese Turkey Burger. They are served in a pirate boat, and come with bottomless fries, coleslaw, a soft drink, a scoop of ice cream and a chocolate “gold coin”. Not a burger fan? There will also be a selection of other sandwiches, entrees and salads for you to choose from – just order the boat on the side!

I have been a fan of this charity initiative. The longest I waited was 1.5 hour just to order my own Pirate Pak. If you have never participated before, now is your chance! I’m giving away two $25 gift cards to White Spot so you can bring a date with you on Pirate Pak Day. Yes, two chances to win!

Arnold Bread recently launched four varieties of premium bread in British Columbia and Alberta. We were sent a couple loaves to try, and the possibilities with this product are endless!

With the No Small Potatoes Country Potato Bread, we made Toast with a delicious pistachio spread. We also made some PB& J and Grilled Cheese with it. There’s a hint of sweetness in the potato bread. While it’s good on its own, it also makes a good canvas for rich and bold flavours. I actually thought the bread reminded me of potato chips but Mr. said I was crazy!

As for the When It Grains, It Pours 12 Grain Bread, the texture of the bread is perfect for sandwiches. Not only did we make HLT Sandwiches (ham, lettuce, tomatoes) for picnic…

…we also made our own Oyster Po’ Boy Sandwich at home! The nutty flavours in the grain worked so well with meat and veggies.

Are you tempted to make your own creations with these delicious bread? We have partnered up with Arnold Bread to give away an awesome #Breadie Prize Pack valued at $100.
