SNACKS

created by leah wildman & lauren wilton, with love.
we’re feeling a little peckish over here at HQ. it was a long, busy summer and SNACKS is even busier now going into the holiday season which was kicked off by a doozy last night at russet & empire. micah throws one heck of a party (it was even advertised on the grid website and on our favourite toronto food website, swallow food) and leah & i were there to make sure everyone was well fed. when asked to make a snack for a bunch of beer-drinking hosers, we were like, duh! so we made…

house-cured peameal bacon sandwiches + kozlik’s maple mustard + old canadian cheddar on OMG baked goodness milk buns. 

fuck. yes.

phhhhhhhew! this week’s junction flea was a doozie! busier than ever, leah + i sold out of jerk riblets by NOON (thanks for popping by for the last order, nina!) and had to go on an emergency run for chicken to feed all the hungry people in the afternoon. we think this might have had to do with a little mention of the flea in the globe & mail this past week, nevertheless, our backup sold out in an hour which gave us time to sit down with a glass of… lemonade.

blogTO had a guest contributor come out + do a lil round up of all the flea flood vendors, like our friends over at feastTO + royal sugar, which can be seen here (they also took the picture above! thank you, blogTO!).

so thank you, thank you, thank you toronto (and thank you, paul + micah of the junction flea!), for continuing to support our teeny tiny business + for showing up week after week to purchase our wares. we love you more than you can know!

My doctor told me to stop having intimate dinners for four, unless there are three other people.
