love was made for me and youFebruary 15, 2009 at 11:02 am | Posted in food | 1 Comment
yesterday was definitely one of the nicest valentine’s days i’ve ever had. last year i got roses and chocolates, but jon knows me so much better than that.
clockwise from top right: sharkies, in two new (to me) flavours, a sugoi technical fabric neck warmer to wear instead of a scarf on runs and snowshoes, awesome smart wool trail running socks that are gloriously soft and padded (they are a very socially conscious gift)
and the best: two aluminum cups that he made himself in the lab (i’ve been asking for them for at least a year now!) and a third fancy one just for fun. i like to wear it as a hat.
after the awesome dinner i made, which i sadly took no pictures of, but which featured: a roasted pork roast with a sour cherry glaze + accompanying sauce, sweet potato gnocchi and dark chocolate molten cakes with white chocolate raspberry swirl ice cream minus the ginger and compote, for dessert) we watched passchendaele together. it is definitely one of the *best* canadian english films i’ve seen yet! although it is a war movie it has lots of love. i highly recommend it!
today is another beautifully sunshiney day. i’m enjoying a cup of coffee with a new musical discovery that i made from that awesome youtube baby video:
Coeur de Pirate is infectiously bouncy and fills my love for all things french. check it out!
i’m making minestrone for lunch. we’ll have leftovers for supper.
