WELL HELLO THERE!
To my fellow Canadians I wish you a very happy Thanksgiving weekend! To my American readers, I wish a very happy regular weekend
Last night was the kick off to mine and my Bestie Janet’s Globe season!
We ate at 20 Ten, a hip and trendy Downtown restaurant, with amazing ambience and even better food!
I drank a glass of Italian Pinot Grigio (which I did not photograph apparently!)
And we began with amazing an Amuse Bouche. For the record, anytime anyone says AMUSE BOUCHE I think of Samantha from Sex and the City saying “I’d like him to Amuse MY Bouche.” Dirty? Sure. But hilarious!
These amuse bouches were brought to us unexpectedly and they were absolutely delightful! Sweet baby pepper filled with goat cheese and topped with smoked salmon, mustard something (we don’t know what it was) and fresh dill. MERCY!!!
A little bite of heaven:
We each ordered a chicken entree, I ordered the Sea Meets Bay, a beautifully tarragon infused chicken thigh, lobster gnocchi and seasonal vegetables all with a tarragon marsala au jus. WOW!
The portion was perfect (our plates weren’t full and it actually left us room for dessert!)
Which for me was a crustless apple cinnamon cheesecake in a glass. There. Are. No. Words. It was a tad rich so I couldn’t finish it but what I did eat was splendid.
Our waitress was charming, our wine was fabulous, our meals were over the top good.
So to my fellow Reginans or Saskatchewanians, check this place out. We most certainly will be back!
And as for the show, well, the costumes were superb (1920′s dresses and pants stole the show for me! LOVED IT!) and the acting was fantastic…BUT the language was Shakespearian and I couldn’t understand 3/4 of the show. Oh well, a night out with Janet is a very special blessing in my world.
Today we are heading to our cottage to close shop (we didn’t end up doing it last weekend!) and then it’s a food and family filled weekend. We will be staying with my folks and going to Jeff’s folks place on Monday for dinner.
I have an extra long weekend (I took Tuesday off in addition to Monday) so life couldn’t be better!
I will check in later when we are at the lake!
What a day!
It was busy, productive and full of technological challenges
My day began with a Leslie Sansone workout (3 Miles- Walk Away Your Waistline) followed by some smoothie action!
The smoothie on the right was actually my lunch! For some reason I just couldn’t get enough smoothie today!
After work I ran to Walmart, The Bulk Barn and Safeway to get ingredients for my bake-a-thon this evening!
BUT before I got going in the kitchen I roasted some brussels sprouts and salmon!
What was the first item on my baking list? Chai Tea Concentrate!
Followed by pumpkin granola!
Followed by apple crisp!
We are having a dessert auction fundraiser tomorrow at work and I am bringing all of the above
Now it’s time for The Office!
