Blackened Cod Tacos

Spending the weekends exploring new places and fun outdoor activities is quickly becoming the norm since moving to the west coast. This long weekend I went up to Pemberton for the Friday-Saturday to check out two delicious local restaurants Solfeggio Foods and Mile One Eating House, I also successfully managed to cross the Joffre Lake hike off the bucket list!

1 Just when I thought spring was finally here to stay, we ended up having a small snow fall the friday night. It definitely made for a snowy/ slippery adventure up to the lake. Note to self …It’s time to invest in some decent trail hiking shoes.

2While up in Pemberton I met Evan, one of the owners of Pemberton Taco Co. I spent a great deal of time sifting through his cookbook collection and talking about tacos.  All of which inspired this new blog post. 3
