Had a lovely dinner Saturday night with Michelle at a place that’s been on my list to go to for awhile now…Elephant Walk and it was as delicious as I’d hoped it would be! Started off with Potage aux Champignons, Coulis d’Epinard, a wonderful wild mushroom soup with sherry and brown rice…yum! The entree was Coquilles St. Jacques au Gingembre, the scallops were great and the mashed edamame was out of this world! I also had a delicious drink; cognac mixed with pear liqueur…a delight to sip!
Afterwards, we went to see The Kite Runner. I’ve never read the book, but after seeing the movie, I really want to! It was sad, inspiring and eye opening, all at the same time. See this if you get the chance!
Sunday, Megan and I went on a search for Max’s & Wolf’s Christmas present, crack biscuits (aka Innova Health Bars). Finally found them at the second pet store we went to (they were almost sold out, these things are fantastic!) and then we headed off for a sushi lunch. Won’t say where, as I was quite disappointed with the meal. Maybe it’s under new ownership or something, it used to be fantastic. Afterwards, we went to see the movie, Juno. Go…GO see this movie! I loved the girl, quirky and smart and funny. The parents were fantastic, especially the step-mom in the scene with the ultrasound tech. Then we did a bit of last minute shopping (for me lol) and headed to Megan’s for dinner. We’d planned on fondue, but the cheese was an utter disaster and so I put together dinner from the things we’d planned to dip in the cheese (garlic sausage and fingerling potatoes sauteed with onions in a little olive oil, and a bit of white wine & mustard). During dinner we watched Love Actually, because I haven’t seen enough movies this weekend Dessert was one of Megan’s delicious haystack cookies!
Today I’m baking cookies, and in a bit I’ll go out and get a few more things for tomorrow. Are you ready?
Saw this over on Lisa’s blog:
Your Score: The Coyote
You scored 41% domestic, 42% gregarious, 53% trickster, and 29% intellect!
Wild, Solitary, Emotional Trickster: you are the Coyote!
Coyote is a complex symbol of humor, cunning, and survival. Coyote is often portrayed as the ‘wise fool’, helping people to see the truth in difficult situations. Coyote medicine is often strongly tied to learning to be adaptable, seeing the humor in even the worst situations, and being able to cope with even the toughest things life can throw at you.
This test categorized you based on four different axes of personality, which were then associated with a different animal. The four axes, as well as all possible results are explained below.
Wild/Domestic: This first axis categorizes you based on how much you are drawn to the outdoors, versus how much you are drawn to civilized situations. Domesticity has many shapes and forms, and varies from the joy of dolphins leaping next to a ship to the steadfast loyalty of a family dog.
Gregarious/Solitary: This axis measures how solitary you are. If you scored high, it means that you enjoy the company of other people, while a low score indicates that you prefer a more solitary lifestyle.
Trickster/Serious: This axis measures how well you line up with conventional trickster archetypes. People who fall into this archetype have a sense of humor and an excitable, highly chaotic streak. Scoring low doesn’t mean that you don’t have a sense of humor; it just means that you probably don’t think dynamite is very funny.
Intellectual/Emotional: This last axis determines whether you are more emotional — acting based on feelings and instinct, or rational and intelectual — acting more on thought than on your gut feelings.
