Just realized I haven't had to cook dinner since last Friday! This is how my week went:
Last Saturday I attended the West Toronto Ball at Casa Colombo. We had a delicious meal - pasta (it is an Italian venue, after all!), chicken and salmon with nicely prepared vegetables and a chocolate mousse with coffee to finish. Then we danced to live music until midnight although I left just before 11:00 p.m. as my feet and legs were complaining.
On Sunday I had dinner with Judy and family for Mother's Day. Steve and Alison were there too and the men cooked the meal - tasty chicken with plenty of crunchy salads. Judy had found a chocolate fountain at the thrift store and she got it running after dinner. Fruit, sponge cake and pretzels for dipping, a fun and easy way to serve dessert! Everyone was very impressed. I went home with a lovely hanging basket (from Steve) and a 1000 piece jigsaw puzzle from Judy. I have yet to start it as it looks quite challenging!
Monday was our final night at Dance group so we had a pot luck party after dancing for an hour. I didn't bother with dinner before I went as there is always tons of food!
On Tuesday I was out for lunch with the retired teachers (salmon, salad, tasty vegetables and a yummy cheesecake with raspberry coulis) so just soup and a sandwich for dinner.
Wednesday was a bus outing to St. Jacob's to see "West Side Story". First stop was the Butterfly Conservatory in Cambridge - I had never been and it was very much worth a visit. Then lunch in Waterloo before the theatre show so no dinner needed again that night. The show was quite spectacular, well worth the bus trip.
On Thursday Donna, Marilyn and I went to Remizzio's after the Probus meeting and I had lobster bisque followed by crab cakes, my usual choices when we are there. Another soup and sandwich dinner as I wasn't too hungry by the evening.
Today was back to my usual routines but I needed to use up some vegetables so made a batch of fennel and carrot soup and an eggplant Caponata so that was dinner. I had taken some chicken out of the freezer but couldn't face it or salmon one more time this week!
