One of my favorite ways to spend my time is enjoying meals with my friends. There is nothing like a good meal shared between great friends.
I have the wonderful pleasure of being with my friends around food all the time; we love to meet for lunch, we plan dinners on the regular and we love wine; and wine- naturally- goes best with food.
This past week I went to Café Select with my lovelies Caitlin and Suzy, and if you follow my Twitter, you would have know that I was all a-twitter over our delicious French feast! Café Select has the most amazing French food, we dined on Mac & cheese, steak tartar, grilled romaine salad and baked goat’s cheese; washed down ever so nicely with the best Sangiovese red wine I have ever tasted!
My lovely friends Tiffany and Danielle hosted myself and 2 others to a pasta feast- oh and what a feast it was. Goat’s cheese (noticing a cheese trend?!) on warm baguette, spring green salad with balsamic glaze, homemade lasagna, garlic bread and macaroons for dessert; and of course wine- gimme a break, I’m in my twenties!
Saturday was unseasonably warm in Edmonton, so, naturally, I met up with Sarah and Tony on the patio at Café Leva- the coolest euro style coffee café- for a sandwich and a latte! I was really hoping Edmonton would be gifted with an Indian Summer, as summer was complete bubkus this year; and we did! If we get 1 or 2 more weekends like the last, I will be forever grateful. I hope you heard that Mother Nature.
And, lastly, the spread the ladies and I enjoyed at the swap- Italian meats and cheese, bread, bruschetta salad, wine AND Caesars!
