My favourite book of all times is The Book of Negroes , written by Canadian author Lawrence Hill.  The book of Negroes won Canada reads for 2009.

If you have the chance to pick this one up it is a MUST read!!! You can purchase at any bookstore in paperback for about $10-$15. I have recommended The book of Negros to everyone I know who loves a good read.  Although this book is fiction I find I couldn't put it down.

This is about a one girls path of life through slavery. The main charter is Amanata Diallo she is a fascinating character and very easily liked. Amanata has over come great loss and still finds a way to continue on. Her strength and sheer determination through discrimination and slavery is what makes this story so special.

I truly love this book and hope you will take the time to read it.

I really wanted my first blog to be something I know about and that just so happens to be food. Here is my review of Arabesque Cafe.

 My good friend and I decided that we were going to go to lunch and have a afternoon to ourselves. I suggested we go to one of my favourite restaurants Arabesque Cafe. We ordered off the lunch menu and was able to get caught up alittle on the days events. We both ordered the shawarma with rice, hummus, a fresh pita, tabouleh salad and a pop. I was so surprised at the quantity of the food!! I could only eat half. The waitress was very friendly and I find the restaurant to be clean and organised.  My friend and I were there over and hour and didn't feel rushed out the door.  I found lunch to be a very busy time but we were attended to and not forgotten. 

Arabesque Cafe is a nice little date night spot as well. Often my husband and I enjoy a date night and we find the atmosphere for dinners to be intimate and the menu choices always delicious.

This unique food choice will delight your pallet.  The food I find to be plentiful and the amazing delectable flavors of the middle east puts this one at the top of my list for Kitchener restaurant choices!!

Nothing is better than great food and amazing company

 Thank you Tina!!!
