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.

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!
This is not street art, Jessica! :)

In the afternoon, the bistro had my favorite snack

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

The clementine juice was freshly squeezed.

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!
