I'm a lucky girl....
When we moved into our house about a four years ago it was completely white washed. Four years and a doctorate degree later we hadn't done anything to the house. We decided to try to spruce up the kitchen. I don't have a true before picture of my kitchen, but the cupboards used to be a really ugly beige laminate. We painted the cupboards white and the walls yellow. The yellow turned out much more like highlighter yellow than "lotus flower yellow." sigh
Today we slaved over adding these handles to the cupboard doors and drawers. Even though my husband cursed a lot through the experience I think it was worth the vision I had for my kitchen.
Tonight we went to one of my favourite vegetarian restaurants in Toronto, Café 668 This food is so incredibly tastey there is nothing I can write to give it justice. You have to go and check it out for yourself. All I could think about was how much my brother in law, Martin would appreciate this food, since he can often be quoted as saying, "this is some serious flavour" while enjoying his food.
First up is a vegetarian curry. How do southeast Asians make their curry? I need to know, because this is absolutely my favourite type of curry sauce. I have tried lots of different curries, but I definitely love this one the most. This dish has tofu and some faux bbq pork in it. I love the faux bbq pork!
Next up is crispy fried noodles with four different mushrooms. Crispy noodles has to be one of my favourite things about Asian cuisine. Sorry about the photo here, as soon as the food arrived we dug in and forgot about taking the picture until we had already destroyed the presentation.
Last, but certainly not least, one of our favourites at this restaurant, curried eggplant. They lightly batter and deepfry the eggplant and then cover it with their perfect curry sauce. Once again, apologies for the photo, we had already started eating before we took the photograph, again!
