An education is on my list to see, should be here shortly. What did you do for the cheese dumplings? I celebrated a birthday for a friend with chinese food, went for a run, talked a lot about cocoa butter, baked some lasagna, made soup and watched a hockey game. Oh yeah, and read your blog!

Oh yes, I heard about the storm in Houston Saturday on the news!!

I went to the beach with the girls and swam til 8:30pm - it was so nice:)

Today, well, it's our turn to have buckets of rain...

Love you!

Barbara said...

Your little hazelnut cakes look wonderful!
I worked out, did some test cooking, went out to dinner with my son, balanced my checkbook, paid bills and saw a couple Netflix movies. Finally saw Avatar.
Normal weekend for me!

Kristin said...

Dionne -- I have decided that I am booking a ticket and taking a trip down to you because every time I hear about a weekend recap, I just want to be by you! and eat with you!! sounds delish.

my weekend was awesome! I had 5 childhood friends in to visit, and we had a marvelous time! lots of laughing, lots of wine, lots of eating. Perfection.

Katie said...

I love your illustrations and photos - too wonderful!
Now that I've said that, on Saturday I got my hair cut, styled up my favourite party dress in a new way then hit the town for cocktails. On Sunday I turned a year older, was treated to brunch and regretted drinking tequila the night before...
