While we waited for our friends, we ordered the deep fried brussel sprouts and some cocktails.
I had mussels, and Dave had the oysters for our appetizers. Then he had the bison burger and I had the fried chicken. Our friends each had the Xmas burger (turkey, cranberry, dressing, etc.). E had the mac and cheese with cauliflower (one of the many items on the extensive kids' menu).
Great food, and very welcoming atmosphere. We will be back, and likely for brunch next time.
If I never see another bag of leaves, it will be too soon. This weekend, since the snow was cleared away, we decided to tackle the backyard and rake the leaves. On Sunday morning, Dave and E brought all of the leaves together in a huge pile, and when I got home from church (and home from three different stores looking for leaf bags), I helped bag the heavy, dirty, wet, but surprisingly not stinky, leaves. We did 25 bags, and the back yard is
We also got our outside Christmas lights up on Saturday (pictures to come), and we met some neighbours. They brought us a Christmas arrangement for our porch (pine boughs, pinecones, etc.), which was so sweet of them.
Hope you had a nice weekend too!
I know a fellow (your Dad) who took out his gas leaf blower and blew the leaves off the trees so he had the majority of them to rake (once). It looked so darn funny I took a photo but he got the job done.ReplyDelete
