Glimpses of my Weekend



Baptist Church yardsale finds:  jewellery box ($1), beautiful beaded chain necklace ($2), hats for summer tea parties ($1 ea), tea tray ($1), 2 cookbooks ($0.25 ea) and a pillow for Nagisa's room ($2).
Al fresco dinner on the deck and my first gin and tonic of the season.

Multi-cultural event in Lunenburg:  beautiful saris; beautiful people; culture, history, dancing and delicious food.
 Chai concentrate -- which smells divine.  Thank you so much Goody (Eat the Blog).  
(She left the recipe in the comments section of my last post.)

Cooking for the week:
curried carrot lentil soup and spatchcock chicken (both from The Perfect Pantry) and baked falafal.


My kitchen smells delicious right now!

Aging disgracefully?! You've read my mind!!! Second hand shopping first? Red wine (dark) chocolate and a diet that combines them? The definition of grace...we must be soul sisters!!! I stumbled upon your blog while looking for thrift store listings in area of Quebec City... Here for a visit want what's fun and local, not the mall! Ideas? Thx for the smile!

My hubby loves lentil soup and falafal. He'll be knocking on your door for a taste. Me, I want to borrow those hats. LOVE them. So pretty.
