About Me

My Photo
I am a teacher, fitness/yoga instructor, runner, celebrity stalker, chocolate lover, embarrassing dancer, wine guzzler, can't-live-without-my-girlfriends kind of girl. I also have a collection of high heels that strongly outweighs my collection of runners. My goal is to find balance in my life through health and exercise- and when I say balance, I mean kicking ass in the gym and enjoying food, wine, family, friends, and basking in celebrity news. I hope you can help me in my journey and I hope that you, too can find balance!

Swiss Chalet, The Swiss, Dirty Chicken... any way you name it, it's glorious.

Last night was our Science Teachers Bash! Every year we get together and celebrate "all things round"- cheersing (is this a word?) to those who are getting married (ring = round) or having a baby (belly = round). Usually, we go bowling (ball = round). Our science department totally rocks.

We met up at one of my favourite restaurants: SWISS CHALET. Known sometimes as the Chal-let, the Swiss, SC, Dirty Chicken... any way you put it, it's glorious. Now, the Swiss and I had a fight a few years ago when their annual Festive Special (quarter chicken dinner, garden salad, roll, and TOBLERONE for dessert) changed to include Lindt chocolates instead of Toblerone. What. The. Eff.

I did, eventually get over this and couldn't stay away from the famous Chalet dipping sauce.

Helllllllllllllllllllllllllls yes.

Jen does not agree.
My friend Jen thinks this the Swiss is for white people, mostly seniors. No idea what she's talking about.
This gives me hope in growing old.

Seriously... how could you not want to dive into THIS???

If that wasn't enough to have you running to the Swiss Chalet Drive-Thru (yes, these exist... much to Jen's dismay), I think some people may be coerced to try the chicken goodness from a photo I happened across from just a few days ago:

Justin Bieber... you've never been dreamier.
That's right. J Biebs at the Swiss.

I rest my case.

1. Tell me your fast food weakness!

While I don't consider a classy restaurant (we had wine for dinner!) like the Swiss "fast food", it is my true love.

2. Bieber... yay or nay?

Definite YAY.

Ahahahaha! That dipping sauce was my favourite before veganism started! I think the base is chicken stock (or fat, who knows) but it tastes so heavenly, especially smothered all over their fires! I never ate the chicken though! I would just pick at it and have fried off everyone's plate ha.

I don't eat a lot of fast food but I guess my weakness would be french fries. I love me some fries! When I ate meat I used to crave Wendy's spicy chicken...mmm breaded and deep fried deliciousness!

Bieber is a yay. And for all of you who say NAY, "never say never"...hahahahahaha

Can we PLEASE go for Mexican?! Thanks pretty.

I've never been there before, or even heard of it! I must be missing out big time!
Bieber---Yay! I only know one or two of his songs but he is just adorable.

well if it's good enough for j man, how the heck can you hate?!?! and i'd agree that place is on the classier edge of fast-foodom...and as my big weakness, Chipotle, i like to think it's a few notches above taco bell and the like. (cut to ramon literally sweating onto the meat he's cooking on the grill...lol)

and i'm with you on the biebs, i've said it before and i'll say it again, i think him and selena are way too freaking cut together. ya, i also have a total girl crush on her!

AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA HEEEEEEEEEELLLLLLLL YES!!! Oh, your case has been rested! Upon the tiny, ladylike shoulders of one Justin Bieber. The Biebs knows what's what. You know, there really isn't anything better than the Swiss Challit. Elegant, fine dining, a breathtaking view of pillowy white hair wherever you look, and a fine array of Asian servers (your friend Jen clearly didn't notice that she too is represented well at any Swiss Chalet). My sole concern with this post is the lack of Swiss Chalet fries on your plate, as they are without question the best fries in the world. Otherwise, this was SOLID gold! I love you very much.
