A Feast for the Eyes

Summer has finally arrived, but we're all trapped indoors. It's hot and sunny and perfect out there... well, almost perfect. We're being held hostage by the mosquitoes, who have made their comeback with a bloodthirsty vengeance. The newspaper photogs have had no difficulty capturing images of hapless victims being swarmed by clouds of mozzies, gleaming in the sunshine. Some folks are worried about the fairies or the dingoes spiriting off their babies. Me? The mosquitoes.

The heat, however, inspired my husband to hold an impromptu lunch party. His idea of advanced notice is, oh, 24 hours max. And then he's surprised when only one or two people can come... In any event, he wanted a somen lunch party. Somen is a noodle dish served cold on hot summer days in Japan. Or, in this case, Canada.

Handsome husband made way too much food for the two and a half people that came to lunch, and he's been eating leftovers for days, but hey, I'm not complaining! Check out the foh-tohs that resulted from his meticulous chopping. At least if we can't enjoy the outdoors, we won't go stir crazy hanging out inside.

These, and plenty more food shots, should be available within the week in the gallery. If you're thinking of dressing up your kitchen with some colour and originality, we have lots of images to choose from.
