yesterday, T & I went for a long ramble up Mosquito Creek from the parking lot. Since time was getting short we turned back before we got to Montroyal. Just as well...we were about 5 minutes from the car when the lightning flashed, thunder boomed and hail started bouncing around us. It got cold really fast and we walked quite quickly to the car and the nice heater.
We went shopping for dinner which he was going to cook for us. It's great having a professional cook now & then. We saw the halibut cheeks which I had never had before. Then we picked up baby bok choy, scallions, lemon and peppers. He marinated the cheeks with garlic and lemon and then quickly sauteed them. Mmmm...good.
I also finished the clamshell swap mat. I've put the wool pieces in the photo so you can see what I started with. I like how it turned out. The greens are nicely blended. It's nice when an expectation is met. Doesn't usually happen that way.
