63 Acres & Fraser Valley Meats

Father's Day around here involves a new tradition.

After spending the day with the kids playing baseball, video and board games, the meat party gets started. Kids get tucked in bed just as the lump charcoal gets lit and the tomahawk steak from Fraser Valley Meats is sitting on the counter waiting for some basic seasoning.

The Tomahawk Steak is just a cool piece of meat. It's not some out of this world cut of beef; don't get me wrong, it's damn tasty but it's nothing out of the ordinary except for the the large bone left on.

Seasoned with SPG (salt, pepper and a bit of garlic) you let the beef taste run free when you're done. Personally, reverse sear is the way to go with beef. Cook the steak to 120-130 degrees and then get your coals nice and hot. Slap that steak on top of those hot coals and get some flames rolling. Deliciousness ensues.

I've had 63 Acres beef from Fraser Valley Meats a few times now and I've been more than happy with it. It's true what they say, you get what you pay for. Enjoy!

PS - Fraser Valley Meats is undergoing a big construction project and it's pretty exciting to check out!

Baker Gourmet - Chilliwack Food Truck

Baker & Co. Gourmet - Chilliwack Food Truck

We recently went to try out the new food truck, located at the NEW Vedder Park close to the Vedder Bridge and UFV Campus (check the map below to see where to find the park and food truck).

The Baker Gourmet Food Truck is located right next to the ample parking lot and even has a couple of large tents with tables and chairs. We ordered three things: Neets Nuggets (chicken fingers), a Flat Top Dog (with everything on it) and some Better Baker Bacon Cheese Fries. It was delicious and we had leftovers to take home. 

It's a great place to end up after a walk down the Rotary Trail or a morning of fishing on the river. Bring your dog or kid for a play in the park and then enjoy an amazing food truck feast. With a debit machine on hand, you don't even need to have cash to bring along.

From their website:
