thingsthatwedo.com - pc pesto

I’m a big fan of pesto. Fragrant, flavourful, and so versatile, pesto is a culinary lifesaver.  Years ago, I used to make my own pesto but nowadays I just don’t have fresh basil lying around and truthfully, I’m the only one in the family that appreciates it. It’s a great lunch saver especially if I have some leftover pasta lying around. Add a spoon of pesto, a bit of parmesan, throw in a few veggies, and I’m good to go. It’s so much better than picking up takeout!

I’ve tried to find a store bought pesto sauce that works for me but it hasn’t been easy. I’m not a big fan of the pre-made pesto sauces with almonds or pine nuts because I can’t be sure it’ll stay fresh long enough for me to use it all before it all goes funky in my fridge. After all, I’m the only one that’ll use it and while I love pesto, I’m not eating every day.

It’s taken me a while but I finally found this PC Pesto sauce made without pine nuts or almonds. - Continue Reading

thingsthatwedo.com - pc elk crossing ice cream

I honestly don’t know how the folks at President’s Choice do it but they are constantly coming up with new ice cream flavours and new products in their PC lines. It’s an amazing feat and I’m sure a lot of research and brain power goes into every single product that makes it on to the shelf.

Case in point: Elk Crossing Ice cream one of the many ice cream flavours in the PC’s signature Ice Cream Shop flavours lineup. I was at my local Loblaws when I came across its yellow and white packaging. That tub of PC Elk Crossing Ice Cream spoke to me. Actually, I think it was calling my name or maybe the peanut butter cups that were in the tub of PC Elk Crossing Ice Cream were calling my name. I’m not sure which but I’m sure I heard something.

Either way, that tub of ice cream came home with me and I’m glad it did. - Continue Reading

thingsthatwedo.com - PC sprinkle party cake ice cream

Once upon a time, many moons ago, my big kid loved PC Sprinkle Party Cake ice cream. It was one of those ‘treat’ ice creams with all the sprinkles, the PC Sprinkle Party Cake ice cream was like one giant surprise waiting in the freezer. We reviewed it back in 2011 in those early days when ThingsThatWeDo.com was just starting out.

Well, a lot has changed over the past few years. We continue to post daily and ThingsThatWeDo.com is now 4 years older. We’ve opted for a different design with bigger images. According to my big kid, even the PC Sprinkle Party Cake ice cream has changed and it’s not for the better. The image you see above is the new stuff. - Continue Reading
