Anticipation and Buckwheat Pancakes with Crème Fraîche and Mangoes

This afternoon thick clouds scudded across the skies, letting random splashes of sunlight warm my perch in the doorway. Those fickle bits of warmth felt so good and I loved looking up between the trees, waiting in anticipation for the next one. 🙂

Today was a good day, a peaceful day, all the stress and anxiety of the last week melting away in a delicious sense of well-being. My dear friend Kat braved the early morning hours to drive out and have breakfast and a jolly visit with me before work. 🙂 I toasted prosciutto until it was nice and crispy, and made a stack of buckwheat pancakes while the tea water came to a boil. Kat whipped up crème fraîche and diced fresh mangoes and glistening wedges of ruby red grapefruit, and soon we were sitting down to a scrumptious breakfast and comfy chat. 🙂

Tonight I got to meet my folks and dear family friends for a fabulous Indian feast at a new restaurant. Our waitress was a kick in the pants, ordering us about and telling us what dishes we should choose. 🙂 Her recommendations were excellent and we had a grand time attempting to eat even a smidgen of all the food heaped on our plates. I brought home my leftovers and won’t have to cook until Saturday! Hooray! 🙂

I’m really looking forward to this weekend. In addition to the usual things: sleeping in, indulging in some sort of dessert, and snoozing in the sunshine under a handmade quilt…

…I also get to go to the Leonardo Da Vinci: The Mechanics of Man exhibit at the Vancouver Art Gallery with my pals from cooking club. If we have time we’re going to explore oh-so-beautiful Stanley Park a bit too. 🙂 I’m really looking forward to it. 🙂

What lovely things are you looking forward to this weekend? 🙂
