Picnic in the park

Today was Simcoe Day long weekend here in Toronto in honor of a lieutenant governor who initiated the end of slavery. Any long weekend in the summer is a chance for us to enjoy the beautiful weather and get in touch with nature...without getting stung by a bee or chased by the Canadian geese that is.

My husband and I decided to stop off at Jamaica Jamaica Jerk to get some delicious jerk chicken with rice and some coleslaw for our picnic. I have talked about all kinds of different foods here on my blog, from Thai to Italian and Indian but this restaurant sells my favorite jerk chicken in the city. They also sell other Jamaican dishes, none of which I have tried after having this jerk chicken.
You can find this restaurant at 2419 St Claire Ave West in Toronto


It was a beautiful day for a picnic!

This beautiful park in Etobicoke is called James Gardens

    1. Thank you, I actually would like to get a professional camera, I just bought a digital one which works underwater as well and it was expensive but still isn't the one I am looking for. I need to do some research.
