Over a cup of tea…

October 28, 2013

If we were chatting over a cup of tea this morning, I’d tell you I’m 26!!! I had a fabulous birthday weekend filled with my best friends, incredible wine, food and celebrations. To say I am a spoiled brat is an understatement. On Friday night, My Other Half took me to Supply & Demand in Westboro (I’ve been dying to go) and it was amazing – definitely one of the best dining experiences in Ottawa lately. I am a huge fan of anything raw and they have an entire raw menu. I hear it made enRoute magazine’s top 10 new restaurants too, which is a huge honour. We normally base our restaurant hit-list on enRoute’s recommendations. We had the kale salad (amazing), albacore tuna crudo, chicharon (francy word for pork rinds – also amazing), pepper spaghetti and pork belly. My Other Half thinks it’s the best pork belly he’s ever had, and it’s his favourite dish. Yum!

If we were chatting over a cup of tea, I’d tell you my friends are so awesome. My Other Half threw me a birthday wine & cheese at our place this weekend and it was a total blast, complete with delicious apps made by my girlfriends, kitchen dance parties and wayyy too many presents. You guys are more than a girl could ask for! I am very lucky to have such fantastic people in my life. Thank you!

If we were chatting over a cup of tea, I’d tell you I spent my actual birthday (yesterday) being lazy and cozy, curled up on the couch or in the tub with a good book. Thankfully this meant I finally finished The Long Stretch (the first novel in The Bishop’s Man trilogy by CBC journalist Linden MacIntyre). I’d been reading it for almost a month, unfortunately, so I am now way behind on my reading challenge. I have exactly one week to read The God of Small Things (Erin’s pick this month) before book club on Sunday! Yikes.
