So, I’m reading the National Post this morning … and G mentions the Valentine’s Day greetings in the Arts & Life section (first hint). I glance over and see the half page of greetings. Fine, fine.
Then he mentions there’s an inter-racial couple’s picture in the greetings so I have a look (second hint). Fine, fine.
Then I sit down for breakfast and he comes over and has folded the Arts & Life section with the Valentine’s Day greetings facing up and he puts it off to my right (third hint). So I finish reading the front section and actually grab the Arts & Life section as I start my toast. I read pretty much everything but only kind of skim the Valentine’s Day greetings.
Then G, exasperated, finally plays ‘hot and cold’ regarding my Valentine’s Day card and leads me back to the blessed paper I’ve now looked at three times.
…. Where I find this cute greeting (see below).
I’m such an idiot; and obviously dense as toast and about as romantic as a snail. But darn, I’m lucky to have such a great guy :) And we’ll have this little (mis)adventure to remember hehe.
Tuesday’s food: Peking duck pasta
Oh so yummy. I made this last night with the leftover peking duck and the oh-so-wonderful duck consomme.
With thanks to Blee, celebrity mixologist Fabien Maillard of Mixoart suggests for tonight’s festivities:
4 – 6 fresh strawberries
5 – 8 mint leaves
Juice of ¼ Lime
½ teaspoon of simple syrup (Mix 2 tspns white sugar with 1 tspn boiling water)
1 ½ oz vodka
½ oz strawberry liqueur
In a mixing glass, crush together the mint, strawberries, lime juice, and syrup. Now add the vodka, strawberry liqueur and a few ice cubes. Cover, shake, and pour into a martini glass. Garnish with a strawberry and mint leaf.
