happy new year

New Years Eve was an absolute success. My lipstick stayed bright red, despite all the smooching, and my dance moves were at least a 5 out of 10, despite my inherent inability to walk properly in heels. The night was celebrated with joy, laughter, fun, great friends, and good food. It was total perfection.

I danced until I could barely feel my toes. I drank one too many gin and tonics, ate early morning street meat, then passed out until I was woken by the bright sun beaming through the blinds, and a mouth drier than the Sahara desert. Feeling as bad as I did and lacking any real motivation to move, I was very excited when later that day my in laws surprised me with a meal fit for kings.

This past week has consisted mainly of late night meals, snacks, sweets, and plenty of eating out. I haven't spent much time in the kitchen, cooking that is, but I've been spoiled with other peoples creations. My pants are now a little tight and my wallet a little lighter, but I am now happy and full.

I want to share with you a few of my favorite images from the past week.

Beautiful and bright street graffiti on Bay St. Toronto.

I love when sushi is served in a boat.

Shao Mai (shrimp dumplings), which were unexpectedly amazing.

Tasty waffles and fancy beer. The perfect combination.

Cool graffiti art and an old-school dollar store.

A giraffe and a happy man. Sparkly sequins, red lipstick, red nails, and gin.

Cheddar and chive waffles and one hungry handsome husband.

I hope this year brings you a healthy serving of deliciousness.
