TGIF


I thought today would never get here.  I even got to go to Happy Hour tonight.  I could only stay 45 minutes so it was more like Happy 3/4.  But who cares.....there was wine!

I did notice something a little off at the end of the day.  I finally got to sit and relax, kick off my boots and look......


And guess what?  I have another pair just like these :).  Clearly I wasn't entirely awake or alert this morning when I dressed.  Good thing it's still boot season.  

I am going to share something special with you.  It's a recipe I found today.  If you have ever been to Nova Scotia and you haven't tried a donair, then you haven't lived.  A landmark in Halifax is King of Donairs - a late night hotspot when you're hungry.  Nothing like eating spicy beef, wrapped in a pita, drizzled with a special sauce and wrapped in tin foil.  And there is no delicate lady-like way to eat it and nobody cares.  The sauce dripping off your chin and running down to your elbow is all part of the charm.


Some genius has adapted a recipe for donair dip.  I'm totally making this.  But to confess I'm probably going to cheat and buy some actual donair meat from the local take-out instead of following that part of the recipe 

http://mmmisformommy.com/2013/05/hot-donair-dip-aka-halidip.html. 


I'll let you know how it turns out. 

Now, I've got some wool ready to cut and waiting to be hooked into a pillow.   TGIF all!

  2. That looks yummy indeed. My daughter buy the Donair meat and makes her own and she says it's as delicious as those famous Donairs they sell at the Market Saturday morning.

    Love the socks, my granddaughter wear assorted color socks on purpose... so you're in sync with the young.

    Have a great weekend.
    Hugs,

  12. MMMMMM! Looked up a few recipes for the sauce and the meatloaf. Can't wait to try this.
    Here in the States we have gyros that look almost the same but with slightly different ingredients.
    I have leftover pizza in the fridge right now but no sweetened condensed milk. Darn!

  14. Never heard of a donair but sure looks yummy. I really wouldn't worry about the socks as long as you don't wear 2 different shoes!

  15. Well I think if I ever make it there you will have to take me to eat a donair. It looks so yummy. I love your socks, and I of course thought they should look like that. I am so glad you had a nice night and I hope you have fun hooking today. You sound good. Happy Saturday.

  16. Jack always drives me to work on Fridays and when I leave those hospital doors and jump in the jeep, that's my happy hour! Your sandwich looks yummy and reminds me of a gyros...but I'm Greek so that's my excuse! Enjoy the weekend and I love your socks..that's a new trend anyway...unmatched!

  17. LOL ages ago a a friend and I decided to trade shoes. She would wear one of hers and one of mine. And so would I. People thought we were nuts. Your socks reminded me of that. :)

    Your sandwich sure looks good. I want one. :)

    I hope you and your mom a doing good and have a great weekend.
    Take care, Janet W ((hugs))
