Monday

Weekend moments: just hanging around


This weekend was filled with friends and food... just the way I like it! On Saturday we went to the market to buy lots of fresh produce and local goodies.

Do you ever wonder what happens to all the leftover pumpkins after halloween? 

We played Ticket to Ride, my absolute favourite board game, and I kind of lost my voice from all the screaming (I get really into games!)

We put out the cheeses we bought from the market fromagerie, and they were gone within minutes!


My November poppy is still snug on my coat ... and I bent the pin around a bunch of times so that I wouldn't lose it
.... so far so good anyway ; )

 I met a friend for a wholesome lunch at my favourite vegan restaurant, Aux Vivres. They serve these amazing mixed vegetable bowls & brown rice.
This is a Buddha Bowl... it was delicious, and surprisingly very filling.

 And finally, I was delighted to see that the iconic Montreal Christmas tree was put up.
It's actually not a tree at all, just a bunch of lights strung up together.
But we all love it anyway, and Montreal at Christmas just wouldn't be the same without it.
I hope you had a lovely weekend.

  1. Sounds like such a perfect weekend (love the board game screaming :)). I'm eyeing that delicious Buddha Bowl hungrily now! Sigh, and the lovely Christmas lights...we still have Thanksgiving in the States, but I can't wait for Christmas season to begin in earnest.

  11. Your weekend sounds lovely :) The buddha bowl looks good.
    Couldn't the leftover pumpkins be turned into - pumpkin pies or something? I turned a Cinderella pumpkin into a delicious 'fondue' (filled it with slices of a baugette and gruyere cheese and a dash of nutmeg).
