Food Fun!

Tonight was supposed to be Mushroom Meatball Tuesday but I didn’t have a chance to get to the grocery store so we went out to eat instead.

We went to Steveston to have dinner at Diner no.1 .  The diner has a retro feel and the menu reflects that with everything from banana milkshakes to a classic grilled cheese sandwich.

Both Nick and I ordered the Pork Meatloaf Sandwich and it was really great!  The meatloaf was lean and accompanied by BBQ sauce and coleslaw on a toasted bun served with a jumbo pickle wedge and fries.

Following dinner we decided to grab some mini doughnuts at the Outpost Mini Donut Company . These donuts are hands down THE best!  Only a couple of blocks away from the diner this tiny gem is located in the heart of Steveston.

When we arrived at the donut shop we saw the “Shut” sign on the door.Nick and I looked at each other with a pout and turned to walk away when a woman rushed to the door to let us in.  She offered us what she had left and introduced herself and the others to us with welcome arms.. We had a lovely chat and realized that two of the ladies were the owners of the store.  It was so nice to know that they are part of the day-to-day operations and have a true passion for the success of their business.

They have a beautiful shop with a cozy feel and an eye for design. Not to mention, the donuts are FANTASTIC! They melt in your mouth.. We had an assortment of lemon, strawberry, chocolate, powdered and good old cinnamon/sugar.. I loved each and every one of them equally and could not pick one as a favorite.. If you are ever in the area this is a must see/do/EAT!

Good night for now friends!
