Edmonton: where to buy kaffir lime leaves?

One of my recipe books has kaffir lime leaves in a lot of the recipes.... and I'm doubtful as to my success if I look for them at Safeway!

Edmonton: where to buy high quality olive oil for a low price?

I'd like to find a really nice light olive oil for dressing salads and such---but at a fairly reasonable price. Where can I do this in Edmonton?

Breakfast smoothies

Mmmm, peanut butter and banana, HEAVENLY. Thanks, I think I'll try it. And the combo of avocado and espresso sounds really interesting too!

Breakfast smoothies

Oh, thanks for the dates tip! I may have to ease into the spinach----once when we were first married I (ambitiously) made cream of spinach soup from scratch and it was, like, radioactive green. To Husband's deep fear and horror. (Though it tasted just fine). To this day he still reminisces about the Bright Green Soup...

Breakfast smoothies

So, in an effort to get our vitamins in (and to allow more time in the morning for hitting snooze, of course), we've got into the habit of making smoothies for breakfast, which we drink on the way to work.

So far, they've been all fruit-based---especially with oranges and bananas. I often add berries or some skim milk or plain yogurt. But as this is a habit I DON'T want to break, I want to shake things up and not let it get too boring. So! Inspired smoothie combos, anyone?

Your favourite recipe for eggplant

I really like eggplant and would like to try some new ways of cooking it. My current favourite is diced eggplant, chilli peppers, chopped tomatoes, and black olives, poured over pasta and topped with parmesan and basil. (mmmmm) I've also roasted it in big slices with olive oil and oregano... other ideas?

Where to buy Alberta lamb in Edmonton?

My local Safeway (Meadowlark) carries grain-fed lamb from Innisfail, but they don't always have the cuts or quantities I'm looking for. Where else in the city is a good place to find Alberta lamb?
