Nom de Plumage

Woman have a reputation of being great shoppers and Kathy is no exception to the rule. In fact, I can quite safely say that she is obsessed with it. Every day we go to a shopping precinct and spend almost the whole day there, buying trivial things. As I am on a budget, I limit my spending, much to the horror of my cousin. Today was no exception. We had lunch in one of Kathy’s favourite cafe’s and ordered one of her favourite meals. To make her happy I ordered the same was not really impressed with it. A sandwich that consisted of gherkins, roast beef and mustard. The coffee here in Canada is not to my liking. It is a filtered coffee that tastes very weak. The food portions here are huge, so there is definitely value for money.
I am a pastry chef and with that title comes expectations of making desserts, so tonight I made a a fresh apple and peach crumble. Fresh fruit poached in a sugary syrup with added spices, topped with a chewy almond, butter and flour crumble mix. Served with cream or ice cream, is a wonderful ‘comfort’ style dessert.
After dinner, we went for a drive to visit some family friends. They were not home, so instead we drove down to small inner river, where boats and restaurants lined the shoreline. What a spectacular evening. The air was warm with a slight breeze and families were making a special evening of it. A live band was playing on the shoreline, so we stopped at a bar to have a drink and listen to the wonderful music. What a way to end the day?
