Great way to start the morning; Blueberry Buttermilk Muffins with Brown Butter, recipe from my good friend Mary Ann. Thus fortified we trekked up Humphrey Road to Monarch up the hill to Robson, down the hill to Gleneagles and back home.
This isn't the first time we have had breakfast for dinner alla Shirley
Valentine. Eggs and chips are great but we kicked it up a notch with these Maple-Glazed Pork Meatballs. The apple, garlic,and fennel seeds are what make these little orbs so good. Recipe is from "Breakfast for Dinner" by Lindsay Landis and Taylor Hackbarth.
I thought we had had enough asparagus but after tasting this wonderful spring vegetable from Armstrong we will be eating it until this harvest is done.
As usual, I have started a pot of basil and it literally sprouted overnight, that is how hot it is in our kitchen bump-out. Pesto, pesto, do your very besto.....

After spending all afternoon in my studio cutting and sewing strips on the butterfly quilt, we took a break and went downtown for a Cowboy coffee. On the way home we stopped by the BC Lions training camp and watched a scrimmage between the old and new players.

We joined the geese this morning for breakfast down by the river. It's that time of year; the river is high and very fast moving.
One of these days I'm just going to hop onto the train and go clear across Canada or at least as far as Toronto.
I opened the front door and the aroma of wine mingled with roasted asparagus greeted me this evening. Mr. Cowboy made a very tasty risotto with a little help from Jamie Oliver.

I was very lucky to be invited to the milling of the hospital trees. Not only that, but I was able to pick out as much wood as I wanted. Our planks are now stored away, slowly drying, and hopefully in a year or so we will build a table which will be gifted to TG as a memento of her birth at this hospital.
