Sunday’s dinner: 5-minute gourmet
Saturday after adventures in Chinatown East, antiquing in Leslieville, sampling of Pinot Noirs at Summerhill LCBO, and visits to The Art Shoppe and Au Lit Fine Linens, we opted – last minute – to prepare a mini gourmet meal and even dragged out the ‘good’ china.
1) spinach salad with blueberries; 2) the ‘good’ china and Blee’s excellent napkins; 3) poulet vol au vent avec petales de safran
Sunday’s birthday: “Crazy” Karen’s Surprise 65th
Today G and I headed west to Port Credit and LA’s palatial home on Lake Ontario for ‘crazy’ (in a good way) Karen’s 65th birthday. Karen and I go way back (like to my birth). She’s a dear friend, and a wonderful actress, set and prop designer who’s won awards for her work. Yay Karen! Through a difficult divorce, it was not uncommon for Karen to visit my place for conversation and Ouzo that often lasted late into the night. hehe
It was wonderful to be on site for her surprise birthday and great my parents even hauled themselves from London to make an appearance at this special occasion.
1) the surprise is sprung; 2) Karen and my mom reconnect
what flavor pocky are you?
