Today is our 8th marriage anniversary!!

Our 1 week train tickets were expired yesterday.
Last 7 days, we traveled to downtown Vancouver everyday
(50 minutes train ride every morning and evening - I'm not used to it anymore!)
and we were tired as we walked around all day, everyday, in the rain.

So we decided to stay and relax.

We just grabbed a red wine.
We watched "The Dark night" on Blu-ray which was nice.
Aunt & Uncle has a 52 inch TV with nice 5 speaker sets!!

We cooked dinner for Aunt & Uncle, and their daughter Jenny from Toronto.
(she's visiting her parents for a few days)

We hadn't cooked for a while so we were happy.

We cooked;
-Cold Beets salad with garlic dressing
-red snapper with basil pesto cream sauce
-braised mixed vegetable and kale
-brown rice

I wish I could take picture of them....(T_T)

We got all the groceries from Granville Island's public market yesterday.
Everything look so fresh and delicious!
We love shopping there.

I found a nice plant at the market also.
We'll definitely go back there and shop shop shop!!!!!


Anyway...... Happy Anniversary!!

After the nice brunch, we went to Sids
to see the other side of the family.

Some people couldn't come, but it was fun.

We had a light snack, drinks, and played pool.

We separated to boys-table and girls-table.

It was very nice looking building, big menu
good service, and good food!

We took a while to decide what we eat..

Unfortunately, I didn't take any pictures but
Cory had "Lobster Clubhouse Sandwich"
... Nova Scotia lobster with triple cream brie, avocado, pancetta and lemon aioli.

I had "Sweet Potato Lasagna"
... layers of sweet potatoes, leeks, shiitake and portobello mushrooms,
feta and mozzarella on a vodka rose sauce.

It was SOOOOOOOOOOOO yummyyyyyyy!!

Well, I would love to make this at home, and I will!

AND! last Wednesday was Emily's birthday.
So a little surprised for her..

We were invited for a "free dinner for five"
by chef and Patty as a farewell gift.

"for five" meant dad, mom, Matt and us.

The season was over but it was busy night!
We called the restaurant to make a reservation.
There was only one table left for that night
and we eventually get a table for 5.



This was our "welcome" plate.
when I remembered to take a picture,
there is only one piece of spring roll left.
