Great food and awesome company

We went to the city for the Remembrance Day long weekend.  We had a fabulous trip---as usual.  Roger & Mark were pretty busy installing some mouldings and doing the finish work from that.  Rana and I did some shopping, and went for a few great walks with Bailey (the dog).  The temperatures were much warmer than we usually have in mid-November---but just nice for long walks, though......

We usually check out a different downtown eatery each time we go to the city---usually for brunch, and this time we were not disappointed ---- we had brunch at Blue on Water .  
Yummy--take a look.....

The service at Blue on Water was very friendly and fast, food was great with lots of fresh hot coffee, and the price was surprisingly very economical!  We will definitely go back....soon, I suspect.

To close off the weekend, Rana made an awesome supper for Monday night.  My niece Tonya and her husband Rodney came over and we had a fabulous evening.  Rana was pretty pleased to showcase some of her Nan Ward's dishes.........

We started with a salad and some of Rana's home-made bread.......

We had cod-au-gratin, from the cod fish that we caught this past fall.........

For dessert, Rana made molten chocolate cakes...they were scrumptious........

There is nothing as good for the soul as sitting around after a meal with people you love, and sharing a coffee or some wine.......
