So it's about 4 hours before dinner, and most of the prep work has been completed. All that's left is to set the table, give the wines a quick taste, and wait for my buddies to arrive. The calm before the storm. I love these moments before big dinners, when you go get groceries with only a rough idea of what you want to serve - what's fresh, what's seasonal is always the fundamental theme. This is most likely the last birthday I'm going to have in Toronto for a long time. And while a bit sad, we make the most of these moments because it's sometimes not so much what you eat, as who you're eating with.
My last day of being 26, and maybe I should be a bit more reflective, but I want to get going. #DFdoesdinner.
