Happy Thanksgiving!

Dear American friends,

Just wanted to wish you a lovely Thanksgiving. Here is a video of an actor I really, really, really like. He is thankful for the love of his life. (Shakespeare's Sonnet 29).


Corner View: "menu del día"

A nice idea, really: the daily menu of a typical restaurant where I live. I have been thinking about it for a while. My favorite restaurant in Saint-Hyacinthe is definitely le Café Zira, I have already talked about it. But to be honest, if you ask Maskoutains (that is how we are called because of the Yamaska river that runs through our town) the typical restaurant here is Restaurant Lussier.

It has been serving all kinds of food for nearly 50 years. At lunchtime, you better have a reservation, because it is really crowded. A typical meal? Well, we're in Quebec, so of course, we mean "poutine". Restaurant Lussier's is pretty awesome; my favorite (because there are many different kinds), is the Italian poutine. Special cheese (with the ideal texture that goes squish, squish), (delicious) fries and spaghetti sauce. I know, I know, it is junk food, but delicious junk food I must admit ;-)

Corner View: Cellphone Madness

(I'd have so many things to say about these pictures taken on Monday with my cellphone but the idea is not to say a word. Not one. Niet. I'll let you guess, then!)

The idea: when your cellphone rings, you take a picture with it, for five calls. I cheated a little, I only had two calls, but hey...

Corner View: Favorite Dish

So, my favorite dish, well, I don't know, really. I guess lots of cooked but still crunchy veggies, shrimps (those from La Côte-Nord, oh boy! SLUUUUURP), good fresh bread, a little cheese. But these are more things I like to eat, not a dish in itself. Well, I must admit that eating out at Tanja's place is always perfect. She cooks stuff I don't eat at home and it is always delicious, of course.

Otherwise, a (serving) dish I like? Well, bowls. I LOVE bowls. Eating in a bowl, small or large and it's fiesta time for me ;-)

Corner View: Contrast

This picture is such a contrast with my life of the past few weeks. I didn't spend enough time creating, playing with colors, sewing, doing arts and crafts. My crazy weeks are behind me now, yay! Tonight, back to writing our book (with Tanja), that will make me feel so good!
