Nom nom nom

Today I got a chance to eat at my favorite sandwich joint in town, Press'd. Their fall special is called "The Gobbler" which is smoked turkey, cream cheese, cranberry sauce, and spinach on your choice of fresh instore baked bread, my favorite being the pumpernickle rye. I figured I might as well try something other than "The Bird" which is my favorite and pretty much the only one I ever get because of that.

"The Gobbler" was a fresh change to my usual with the additon of the cranberry sauce. The green spinach looked beautiful on the dark brown rye and the bright cranberry added an additonal pop of color.

Tickled Pink

I was at Safeway last month and saw these pink water jugs, probably for Breast Cancer Awareness month. Nevertheless, it was an interesting site indeed.


Interesting. I came across this at the Italian Bakery on 97th Street

Cutest Dog Bed Ever

I was at Home Outfitters last month and I came across the most adorable dog bed ever. Too bad my puppy Blake is a boy or else you would be seeing this in my house for sure.

Time for a change

For those who have followed me for the past year will notice I had made a significant change in my blog. Hungry Woman has now turned into Hungry Woman and Her Dream Factory, an add on I thought would reflect some of the new additions I hope to see in my blog. In addition to restaurant I will also be posting up some food ideas here and there as well as some home decor pictures and odd pictures that I find of interest. I hope all of you enjoy!

Press'd -Again

Last week while I was down town running some errands I made it a goal to stop by the Jasper Ave Press'd location that just opened up early this summer. While I was sad to see that they no longer served my favorite sandwich, the Medito, I was at least happy that they still had my second favorite sandwich, the Bird. This sandwich only came to 5$ and was larger than my whole hand.

Pumpernickel rye, turkey, alfalfa sprouts, cream cheese, and a whole lot of avocados!

TNT Lunch

Whenever I go to West Edmonton Mall I typically get a bite to eat at the TNT Supermarket in the mall.

Today for the first time I saw that they offered a yam and sweet potato tempura maki roll, which of course I had to try.

Super cute steamed rolls I saw at TNT

Famoso..My Favorite

I know I've done multiple posts on Famoso already but there is no harm in doing another one :)

Coel and I went to Famoso in Magrath last week for an early dinner and had the "Sofia Loren" with the Gorgonzola walnut salad (12$) while I had the "Wise Guy" with the Napoli salad (10.50$). For dessert we had the small nutella pizza (5$)

Location: 109th St Edmonton

I finally went to Papma today for lunch! Yey, I'm so happy. I've been meaning to check out this place since it opened but could never find a decent time to fit it in. I booked a lunch reservation just in case since I knew it was Friday and lunch hour downtown. Lunch is 21$ per person and is all you can eat.

Anyways, I'm just going to post up my pictures first and comment a little more at a later date about this great place. I took the picture with my phone so the quality is not very good, my apologies. And I totally forgot to take a picture of my plate before I ate everything from the salad bar :(

The coaster things you flip if you want them to
come around with meat

Such a blurry picture. But its pretty embarrassing walking up to the salad bar and whipping your phone out
to take a picture :p

Extensive wine collection

This look gross, but its all the juices from the meat that they slice right at your table

Salad bar is on the left


Pampa Brazilian Steakhouse on Urbanspoon

Home Made Salmon Dinner

Another one of my home made dinners. Lemon baked salmon with buttered potatoes and asparagus and egg plant. For dessert there was warm cinnamon rolls with hot cream cheese frosting for dip.

Palenque Mexican Restaurant

See, there is a burrito under all that salad

San Francisco Sourdough Eatery - Wenatchee

While in Wenatchee, WA I was immediately drawn into a place called the San Francisco Sourdough Eatery. Sourdough bread and I have a bit of a love affair going and so I could not resit picking myself up a chewy sourdough sandwich. The eatery offered a verity of sourdough subs with different meat fillings. I opted for the pesto turkey while Coel had the plain turkey. It was divine.

Sonic - Washington, USA

One of the things I promised myself to do while in the States was to only eat food that I could not get back home. Thankfully, I actually manged to just that, with a slight exception to Denny's (but I did order a burger that they don't have in Canada!)

Sonic, the fast food chain we up here in Canada have seen on TV adds on American channels was one fast food joint I manged to try out during my trip. Coel and I both ordered their hot dogs, his a 'chili dog' and mine a 'Baja dog' (1.50$). We also ordered their cherry lemonade and a side of mozzarella sticks. My Baja dog was actually really good, my favorite part, oddly, being the poppy seed bun. The bun was very soft and moist and chewy just how I like it. The hot dog itself was a typically hot dog but the jalapeno, jack cheese, and tomato made it a little different than your average dog.
