The Week In Yum July 20-26

I feel like I ate a lot of things this week but I also feel like I ate lots of things I didn't need to eat and that don't really require sharing so that might be distracting me from the task at hand as I sit here trying to think of what to write.


I am a hoarder of Groupon type coupons for restaurants and it's a good thing and a bad thing. It's great that we are forced to try new places that aren't in our normal neighbourhoods but some times it's bad because I lose track of them and then I realize that three of them will expire in the next five days and it's a mad rush to use them up.

tiramisu- I managed to sneak a taste of before it disappeared
Anyway, I had a Living Social coupon for Noce on Queen St West that was, as usual,  going to expire in a few days but between waiting for Summerlicious to end (restaurants don't accept these coupon things during Winterlicious and Summerlicious) and wiggling around our wonky work schedules, the only day that was going to fly was Monday. As fate would have it, Shack ended up on set which meant that I dressed up his stand in, The Kid, and brought him with me to eat his father's four course Italian Feast. Noce was a restaurant that we frequented pre kid and have not returned to, mainly because it's kind of out of our comfort zone, being in the west end and all. I had forgotten how much I like it there and was very happy to be back and The Kid was even happier that he was being introduced for the very first time.  The portions are just the right size, the prices are reasonable for what you are getting, the waiters are gracious and attentive and it's a pretty space. I would like to tell you that I did not almost lick my plate clean after I devoured that asparagus and sausage risotto you see below but I would be lying. It was not a ladylike situation.
