A Taste of Spring


L


ast night
(Thursday) the hubby, some friends, and I went to a foodie event in the city called "A Taste of Spring."

This is what I woke up to yesterday morning:



Ironic much?

I warmed myself up by making some scrambled eggs with salsa and red pepper. I also had a slice of toast and a glass of fresh OJ:



Lunch yesterday was leftover haystack, and 2 clementines.



Before going to "A Taste of Spring" the hubby and I met up with our friends Jeff and Alaina for some appies. The hubby and I shared some coconut shrimp, flat bread with dips, and mushroom strudels:







I also enjoyed a red wine, and then tasted a few more once I got to "A Taste of Spring." I also sampled a bunch of different foods from restaurants around the city:


(Pork steamed bun)


(Wild Pike creation on a cracker with gazpacho)


(JalapeƱo cheddar soup)


(Sushi!!)


(Mushroom phylo with tzatziki)


(Mini dulce de leche cupcake)

The hubby and I shared the above munchies.

This morning I woke up to sunny skies, and a beautiful day. I had a bowl of white mocha oats:



My morning snack at work consisted of some fruit and a cookie:



I went to Earls for lunch with friends from work. I had the chicken and brie sandwich (with apples, fig chutney, and spinach). On the side I had the mixed green salad with goat cheese and pecans:



Dinner today was Thai coconut curry soup that I picked up at the local organic grocery store ... as well as 5 potstickers. Mmmmmm! I had a white freezie for dessert.





The hubby and I are heading to Saskatoon tomorrow to visit my mom in the hospital for an early Mother's day. On Wednesday she was moved to Rehab, and she seems to be doing well there. She has her own room, which means she is getting much more sleep than she had been getting. Now that she is in rehab, she will really be assessed, and decisions will have to be made.

What do you have planned for the weekend?
Are you doing anything special for mother's day?

I love pork buns, but I prefer the baked ones to the steamed ones.
