A night of Caribbean cuisine

May 18, 2019

A few months ago, I had the opportunity to attend Good Buds Bakery Caribbean cuisine pop up. I must say it was nice to be able to get all dolled up, and join my two favourite guys for dinner.

It was three days after Christmas and I found myself staring at a mirror in my bathroom, and like most people I promised myself 2019 would be my bitch. As a platinum level donor to the local Goodlife gym, I decided after two…
