This long weekend, I decided to "celebrate" Easter through food. After looking up a couple Easter themed recipes, I came across this recipe from the Disney FamilyFun website. 

Preparation time: 10 minutes 
Total time: 35 minutes 

1 bag of curly fries (substituted for shredded potatoes) 
1/4 cup vegetable oil or unsalted butter 
1/4 teaspoon salt 
1/4 teaspoon pepper 
6 eggs
2/3 cup milk 
1/2 cup finely diced onions
1/2 cup finely diced red bell peppers
3/4 cup diced cooked breakfast sausage 
1/3 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Not Quite ImPrestoned...

In an attempt to move out of my comfort zone in Downtown Vancouver, I rounded up a couple of friends and headed over to Prestons. The interior is very modern chic, but it did kind of remind me of the casual dining chains like Joey's. Despite the modern decor, we were seated at this sort of tree-table, which to me kind of stuck out like a sore thumb. It basically looked like somebody had sliced a tree lengthwise and made it into a countertop. Anyways, enough about the decor, onto the food!

Free Range Chicken $21
The free range chicken was very tasty! The chicken itself was nice and juicy but the thing I enjoyed the most was the risotto. Although I'm not a fan of creamy foods, the butternut squash and truffle risotto was very nicely done -- buttery with a hint of sweetness.
