Friday night

This morning I bought tickets for my husband and I to go see our next door neighbour's band Sound of Lions (FINALLY!) play at Zaphod Beeblebrox this Friday (it's the club's 20th anniversary weekend bash). I can't wait.
We don't get out much. ;)

Montreal

I went clothes shopping a couple weekends ago in Montreal with my husband and little sister. After hours of shopping (stuff I bought here) my husband drove us around for a little peek at Old Montreal which I've never really seen before (we always just go and hit the malls or St. Catherines St). It's such a beautiful city. I HAVE to go back in the summer to walk around. Here are some pics I snapped in the car.

Love this!

My buddy Tom sent me this link to something REALLY cool. It's edible spray paint! The fun I could have with this stuff the next time I have people over for dinner!

A birthday dinner

Yesterday was my husband's birthday, so we went to dinner at a restaurant I've been wanting to try for ages - The Wellington Gastropub. My co-worker Erik raves about this place and my parents were there recently and also had lots of good things to say. It was fantastic! The vibe is casual which I prefer, the service was great and the food was to die for. (See what I wore here).

Loved the fairly simple and short menu.

I had a couple glasses of Malbec. One of my favourite reds. 

Jeff had a double rye and ginger, and tried an IPA beer (I think it was Muskoka 'Mad Tom'). It was the oddest tasting beer I've ever tried. Very "perfumey" if that makes sense. After the initial shock of the taste I think I actually really liked it. I don't think I would have it with food though as I found it very overpowering. 

Jeff's starter - beet, frisée and fig salad. 

My starter - roasted sunchoke soup with chipotle-lime sour cream and vanilla oil.

Jeff's main - Angus reserve ribeye with cheddar-mustard mash, mushrooms and béarnaise sauce.

My main - sea scallops with cauliflower purée, chile bok choi and warm smoked ham vinaigrette.

Jeff's dessert - milk chocolate pot de creme

My dessert - 3 scoops of ice cream (peanut butter, cinammon, and apple crisp) with a shortbread cookie. (soooooo good)
