catching up

i haven't been that experimental in the kitchen recently, but here's what i've been making:
listening to: november was white, december was grey- say hi

my first poached eggs! poached eggs and garlic spinach on thin bagels

spicy salmon with a soy sauce base and caramelized shallots and garlic
- slice 2 shallots and mince 4 cloves of garlic
- put them in the fry pan with some vegetable oil on medium heat, add hot chili pepper flakes to your taste
- add the salmon to the fry pan
- make the soy sauce mix: a lot of soy sauce, less sesame oil and a quick splash of vinegar. make enough sauce to cover the salmon and pour the mix into the fry pan
- wait until the salmon is cooked and serve!

i went to ben wilkins' EP launch last night, where my sister's quartet, portrait of a lady, was a supporting act. it was a great show, so proud of them! here is one pic from the show, and a promotional pic taken by alex tran. check out their myspace here!

lastly, i've decided to start documenting my shopping purchases. i think it will help me stay mindful and prevent me from going crazy in the $9.99 section at urban outfitters.... i went shopping for the first time this weekend since being back, which, if you know me, is a big deal since i am known to be a compulsive shopper. i went to eva b, a great vintage store in montréal and found two items.

a silky blouse in a funky print. reminded me of joanna hillman!

could not manage to get a good picture of this, but i got a calf-length pleated skirt in a ruby grapefruit colour. great in the winter with knee high black boots, and great in the summer with leather sandals!
