So, it was a hundred thousand degrees today in Toronto. And what do I decide to do when it’s a hundred thousand degrees in Toronto?….. why, turn both the oven and stovetop on and make roasted red and orange pepper soup. Brilliant eh?!
Moron, aren’t I?
But, here’s the thing, my parents are making the journey from London to pay a visit for a bit come Wednesday so I wanted to make a bang-up dinner for them … a Father’s Day Dinner Delayed, if you will. As I’ve dragon boat practice tomorrow night, I decided to clean out the last few peppers G and I bought in St. Jacob’s and make a soup.
…. oh, did I mention … I made these soups in nude too?!
Bet you’re just itching to see pictures of that eh? Sorries, my nudity is saved for the closest of friends only
So … on to the soup:
Brilliant, so the soups are done and a’chilling for Wednesday night. Tuesday I have to make a dipping sauce for the shrimps and a key lime pie and I’ll be set.
Sunday’s movie: X-Men: The Last Stand
G and I saw this film this afternoon, which was a lovely reprieve from the heat. I thought it was just ‘okay’. I just kept thinking the whole time, ‘will they just hurry up and get on with it already’. So, rating wise, 2 out of 5 for me. They killed off a few folks; great. And what was with the trailer after the credits rolled? Is that Charles Xavier returning to life? … and who’s Moira? (sorry, I don’t read the comics so I’m a little doh! when it comes to these things).
Sunday’s best buy: funky glass coasters at Kitchen + Stuff
Picked up these today for $3 (for a set of four). Very funky I think.
Sunday’s procrastination: Niece P’s painting
Niece P has been asking me for sometime time (read: before Christmas) for a smaller version of my “Coming Thru White” work. So, I have bought the canvas and actually laid out the design last night … my good intentions of finishing the painting (in hopes of having it done for my folks arrival so they can cart it back to London) is, well, a long shot now unless I pull an all-nighter.
