June Monthly Challenge

June is the month when fresh fruit and veggies start hitting the Vancouver markets. It’s also the month when the nights are getting longer and weather should be getting warmer. On the hot days, we filled our tummies with fresh salads and smoothies. On the rain-filled days, we were happy to turn on the oven and churn out freshly-baked bread and cinnamon buns. Really, there were no losers during our month of NIBBLES.

One of our favourite nibbles (aside from our homemade onion rings, that still make a weekly appearance) was the Veggie Brunch Burger at The Belgard Kitchen. If you’re in Vancouver and they still have this item on their weekend brunch menu – definitely get it; it was unbelievably good!

So what did my June month of NIBBLES look like?

The June Photo Challenge took us…

… from cool-weather curries to hot-weather smoothies…

… from birthday cakes to birthday beverages…

… from loaded salads to loaded burgers…

… from breakfast overlooking tree-lined streets to dinner overlooking the water…

… from baking bread to cake to cinnamon buns…

… from snacking on all the blueberries, cherries and strawberries.




And just like that, we’re into July!

I shared my new monthly word(s) already, so you can expect my social media feeds to be filled lots of Simple Pleasures. If you’d like to join in the relaxing joys of summer, that would be awesome! If not, just looking at pretty pictures works too 😉

I’ll be tagging them all with:




Happy picture-taking 🙂
