After two weeks off during the holidays, what do I have to show for it? Not too much, unless you count the three bags of recycling in our backroom that mainly consist of wine bottles. A few vodka bottles are also there, for good measure.
Christmas was filled with the usual good foods that only make their appearance during the holidays (and in excess!):
And don’t forget the quintessential pork buns, and the spinach pies and the raisin bream-ham-cheese bake! There were also many, many desserts, and I will be posting some of those recipes over the course of January.
We also enjoyed various other foods…lots and lots of food.
We had an amazing and simple meal at L’Express. It was our second time going there in under a year, and three of us shared the bone marrow appetizer, but had it served with our hangar steaks and fries.
After a night of extensive wine-enjoyment, Soli went out for lunch to Pho Tay Ho, our favourite Viet resto in the city. He came home with a raw beef salad and an all-dressesd pho for me. So sweet, so needed.
And the mandatory pizza, necessary for any quality holiday:
Speaking of said pizza, this one took three hours to get to us, because we ordered it one the day of Montreal’s record-breaking snowstorm, which threw 43-cm of snow on us. Soli worked hard shovelling a pizza path for the poor delivery man.
And some quiet evenings and/or mornings with great scotch and great cats.
