It’s that time of year again…Tofino Time! The whole family made the great trek West and North to beautiful British Columbia for our week long family holiday filled with foraging and fishing adventures. My trip in particular took a whopping 16 hours…grrr…so admittedly it’s taken the past few days to get into vacation mode, but I’m in it! I’m in vacation mode….weeee!

For those of you who know my family, food and cooking are the main features of any FFV (Fowler Family Vacation). So to get my inspirational juices flowing for the week ahead, I looked back on last year’s postings. I had just started up the bloggy and I had so much fun documenting all of our delicious meals and the hilarious adventures that got the food to the table. Here are a few of our 2012 highlights; I can’t wait to share this week’s culinary delights!

This video pretty much sums up the Fowler Family:

One of my all time favorites Chanterelle and Goat Cheese Tart  from What’d you do with all those Chanterelles?

And finally, the kind of epic, kind of a fail “Shumai.” I’ve gotten a bit better, but here’s the original  Crab and Shrimp Shumai:
