Today was a good day, a peaceful day, all the stress and anxiety of the last week melting away in a delicious sense of well-being. My dear friend Kat braved the early morning hours to drive out and have breakfast and a jolly visit with me before work. :-) I toasted prosciutto until it was nice and crispy, and made a stack of buckwheat pancakes while the tea water came to a boil. Kat whipped up crème fraîche and diced fresh mangoes and glistening wedges of ruby red grapefruit, and soon we were sitting down to a scrumptious breakfast and comfy chat. :-)
Tonight I got to meet my folks and dear family friends for a fabulous Indian feast at a new restaurant. Our waitress was a kick in the pants, ordering us about and telling us what dishes we should choose. :-) Her recommendations were excellent and we had a grand time attempting to eat even a smidgen of all the food heaped on our plates. I brought home my leftovers and won't have to cook until Saturday! Hooray! :-)
I'm really looking forward to this weekend. In addition to the usual things: sleeping in, indulging in some sort of dessert, and snoozing in the sunshine under a handmade quilt...
...I also get to go to the Leonardo Da Vinci: The Mechanics of Man exhibit at the Vancouver Art Gallery with my pals from cooking club. If we have time we're going to explore oh-so-beautiful Stanley Park a bit too. :-) I'm really looking forward to it. :-)
What lovely things are you looking forward to this weekend? :-)
