Rule Britannia

In anticipation to our viewing of Skyfall today, I was feeling entirely British.  Thus, a good old cheese and beans on toast with fried egg and mushrooms, served with a cuppa Lady Grey.  Both were excellent.

It's dead easy too - just put your toast under the grill, after a couples minutes, flip it over and add your cheese of choice (nothing beats the classic cheddar), take it out when the cheese is bubbling.  Cover with heated beans. Voilà.

Entre ergos

This Saturday a few of us OTs got together to enjoy some good food in good company.

Eveline, Audrey, Linda, Agnès, and Joliane
We started with Joliane's fruit salad topped with cinnamon and mint.. Lemon blueberry poppy seed muffins (recipe from Joy the Baker)...

...and Audrey's scrambled eggs (made with 10% cooking cream and chives - yum!) and bacon.

Delightfully followed by Linda's chocolate and blueberry pancakes,  Eveline's chocolate waffles, both topped with Agnès' berry salad.  I also enjoyed my first Nespresso coffee.

Despite all this sweetness, saltiness and all-around goodness, we did get down to talking about the corruption scandals happening in Montreal right now, as well as how we are affected by the newly implemented Loi 21...

We ended it off with a good brew of David's Tea.  I hope to return the favour one day as hostess :-)

Bright & Poppy

On this first weekend of November (where it certainly felt like it - cold & damp) we went with some comfort food for brunch on both days - lemon poppy seed pancakes via joy the baker.

As Antoine said, "This recipe is a keeper."
