I will snap some pics tomorrow of the snow... if you like white, that is what it will be looking like. it has snowed all day and is still snowing... and my sweet Hubby is still in Victoria,so I believe it will be moi who is on the end of the shovel or the snowblower tomorrow morning at the crack of dawn. Maybe not that early! It was a great week... dinner with Ronda and John at Ron and Phoebe's on Tuesday night... Such a great idea it was! They ordered the Chinese food and I picked it up on the way home from work... Felt like I slaved away in the kitchen for hours...ha-ha... It was a yummy treat and so nice to see John and Ronda and Ron and Phoebe. They had been bothered by a bear who ,for two nights was trying to climb up the corner pillar to their balcony, over the carport. Unfortunately, the poor creature had the crap scared out of him when he accidently stepped on the fire extinguisher....and knocked it down, waking up the household. Poor Ron had to clean up....the bear poop!
On Wednesday I called a Stitch and Bitch meeting for Francis and Deb and Alissa at my house... after work. I have to say we have the best cooks in the neighbourhood! Each brought tasty appies and Alissa came equipped with a bottle of champagne that was called "Pink" and was pink in colour...fairly tasty, it was, but champagne goes straight to my head, so I opted for pink wine instead. Alissa's appie was a cream cheese ball layered with pesto and sundried tomatoes in festive layers of White, red and green. A little spread on a cracker went a long way because the flavour was so intense and delicious!
Francis brought lovely platter with little boats of individual endive leaves filled with fresh shrimp flavoured with taragon and caper ,all fanned out around a dish of tasziki dip... It too was very yummy.
Deb ,who is Russian seems to have some Italian blood in her,as she loves the aged cheeses. She brought a dried salami, aged cheddar, brown soft bread and mi favorito... fig jelly. i don't know where one buys that fig jelly, but it has a flavour that compares to nothing else in the world, and pares beautifully with a rich cheese . I have to say I had more than one helping!
I, on the other hand made some brushetta and cooked up some popcorn shrimp and a chocolate crinkle cookie...less than gourmet, but pretty good anyhow. We did have some laughs...until we howled! Not so much bitchin' and no stitchin! Howl ,eat and drink is more like it!
