Oatmeal from home, eaten at work

The bistro lunch was smoked meat, one of the only things I can't eat. So Jessica and I went to Tokyo for some Japanese grub.
Tempura shrimp and veggies
Maki and sashimi lunch
The smallest carrot stick in the History of Ever
Lunch at Tokyo was $34 including tip
On our way back home, Jessica told me that at first, she tought this snow flag was street art. Can you tell she grew up under the Miami sun? Beach nerd!
In the afternoon, the bistro had my favorite snack
Popcorn and gummy bears from the bistro - free
Back home, I was in the mood for a cocktail and was inspired to create one in honour of Hochelaga-Maisonneuve, the neighbourhood I live in. This place has humble oginins and it's the land of "do what you can with what you have". I had clementines, so it was the base of my inspiration.
I called it the HoMartini!
3 parts Absolut Mandrin
2 parts clementine juice
1 part simple syrup
Cherry to garnish
The clementine juice was freshly squeezed.
Shake on ice
Pour in a martini glass
Garnish with a cherry
Dinner was lemon chicken, Brussel sprouts and carrots
I marinated the chicken all day in lemon oil, Herbes de Provence, pepper, balsamic vinegar and garlic.
I also had a nice cold beer from what Martin left behind last week. Thanks Martin!
