Friday Night Dinner

November 10, 2007


It was a long week for both Shann and I. We came home Friday night, tired from the past five days and settled in for a cozy dinner of curry udon, sheltered from the steady drizzle of evening rain. Shann made a big pot of the beef, potato, and onion curry earlier this week and it lasted both of us quite a few meals. Some nights you want to go out and have fun, fun, fun. But this particular Friday called for a quiet night in.

True to her role as the most wonderful apartment-mate and friend a girl could ask for, Shann had a post-dinner surprise in store: dessert from Jacques Torres! We shared the pumpkin tart, really more of a mini pumpkin pie than a tart, but adorable nonetheless with its buttery pastry base and a delicately spiced pumpkin filling. Nothing extraordinary, though very satisfying.

The pie was followed by one of my most favourite cookies to date, the all familiar mudslide cookie, a deadly rich concoction of chocolate, walnuts, barely a bit of flour but enough butter to make you swoon with bliss and sugar to run you straight into a delicious coma. I can only imagine how divine this would be straight out of the oven on a snowy day.
