You name it, we had it. Let's see if I can do my "kim's game" routine, close my eyes and try to remember it all . . . it all started with Egg Drop and Seafood Soup, then there were shrimp dumplings, broccolli slaw, samosas (with HOT sauce on the side), sticky rice, baked tortellini cassarole, pork satay sticks, beef bourguignon, a Phillipine Chicken dish, Devilled Eggs with homemade mayonaisse, little sweet n sour meatballs, Hot n Dry Chicken, Curried Cauliflower/Brocolli cassarole (mine), deep fried Spring Rolls, more sticky rice, Greek Salad, ChickPea Salad . . . and I'm sure I've missed a few dishes . . . For dessert, there was a tray of 3 different kinds of cheesecake cubes - strawberry swirl, chocolate chip/walnut and plain, then there was this ice-cream/chocolate dessert thing called Holy Sh*t (seriously, that's what the guy said it was called), a Poppyseed Streusel and a HUGE sponge/strawberry/kiwi cream cake. And we put enough left over food into the fridge that tomorrow, folks will be helping themselves again, LOL.
Just thinking of it makes me feel full all over again, I came home and didn't eat dinner at all. Just made myself some tea after doing a bunch of chores.
2 inches of snow is just about the right amount, heliona. Enough to make everything white and pretty, but not enough to break your back when shovelling.
We finally rose out of that wretched deep freeze.
It got up to a balmy +2C today! We might see a bit of snow tomorrow our ownselves, but it's not supposed to be a lot. Which is good, because I'm already sick of shovelling great mounds of the stuff . . .
