The Weekend Goods: The City to The Boons
this is going to be a dog's breakfast of a post of yet another weekend-to-chill turned weekend-stuffed-with-plans. not complaining, good times were had all around, but my body is definitely looking forward to some detox and relaxing tomorrow.
we had Katherine and Baby Marilyn for dinner thursday. we dropped the kids off at my mom's afterwards so i could enjoy a child-free lunch with my cousin Nik the following day at East is East on Main & 28th in Vancouver.
Spicy Almond Chai
Nik: my mom's brother's eldest daughter.
Half Ratatouille Half Lamb
Lion of the Desert Roti Roll
Peas, paneer cheese and potato mixed and spiced
ROTI ROLL WAS SO DELISH!!!!!!!
we rushed home to get TACO NIGHT ready for dinner guests KLF & Miles.
choice of chicken or chorizo. remembered radishes and forgot the lettuce.
moses has been transforming the lego trains into buildings. please note the insane simplicity of his choice colours. he and kevin made a modern house from a different freight car a few weeks ago that i keep forgetting to share. he also designed/made this rocket shooter that opens half way on the bottom so that the "fuel" can fly out like confetti. the cutting & confetti is a mixed blessing.
up early saturday for dance class. pre-dance snack of floating snowflakes!!!
i love her
i love watching her dance
Dinner Party #3 chez Khara and Mark. the kids ate first, served like kings.
this was probably the best communal i have had in ages. EVERYONE brought something and it all went together amazingly well! we started off with an INCREDIBLE borscht while the kids ate their dinner. Dinner: Strawberry Spinach Salad with Poppyseeds and baguette, melty ribs, amazing brussels with bacon and rosemary garlic potatoes.
i am going to have to get better at taking dinner photos of groups of people
Em made gluten and dairy free raspberry lemon almond tarts with Coconut Vanilla Icecream. i had two slices and 3 cookies. Em is an AMAZING baker.
the babysitter arrived and had the kids' attention at once
they didn't even respond to the crying baby in the middle of the floor
cookies and a movie
this photo was probably taken at midnight. we didn't leave til 12:30am after having printed and cut out Cards of Humanity. i was a bad person…. and rewarded for it.
today's snow photos next on the menu...
