sunday night dinner

After a rather idle Sunday afternoon at work, I jotted across the street in the drizzly rain to catch a bus downtown for supper. Whereupon arriving earlier than I had anticipated, I stopped into the local bookstore to explore new possibilities and summer reads. Douglas Coupland, several luxurious books on entertaining and the Sartorialist's compilation of beautiful fashion photography. All enticing, though I walked out empty handed.

I met A at a new restaurant, Mis Trucos, which specializes in Mediterranean tapas. What a delight this house turned restaurant turned out to be! Light, airy interiors with intimate table settings. Soft gray/blue walls complemented by white chairs and orange doorways.

As we shared Sangria along with many wonderful foods, we mused over the prospects of interior decorating in new spaces and becoming better cooks. Prefect flavors and textures collided with dreams and side thoughts. Goat cheese and flat bread. Creme fraise over top of risotto and lobster. A perfect sea scallop placed on butternut squash. Flavors so perfect for a Sunday and time spent together.
