  • Before King Noodle House’s vacation (July 18-26), Mack and I made sure to swing by for a pho/bun bo hue fix.

  • Mack and I joined Linda and some of her friends at the Ronald McDonald House of Northern Alberta for our first Meals that Mend experience on Saturday. It was very rewarding experience being able to cook for families whose children are receiving treatment at local hospitals. It was a lot of fun, and the families were so appreciative of the small gesture. Thanks Linda for having us!


With the birthday girl!
