fude.

last night, last night, my dear friends and i decided to try out a new restaurant - fude. we shared a delectable bunch of appetizers - bruschetta, chili chocolate chicken skewers, toadstool puffs, and a mediterranean dip. mmmm.

one of the most humorous parts of the evening was when my friends convinced me to try the chili chocolate chicken, "oh it's not spicy at all janis!". the first bite was good...and then my eyes started watering and my mouth started burning. sigh. i further cemented my reputation as the biggest spice wimp. oh well... 














 oh i love the feet of my dancing friends!

here's a little random video sarah took of our conversation {the topic being la vie en rose}...



hope you all had a lovely weekend!

  18. I think I may have you beat in the spice-wimp category! I can't handle it at all! We've been to Fude before with Uncle John - I guess you weren't around?!?! It was when Xavier was little, so I think you were still in Africa. Another one of those not-so-child-friendly restaurants, but the food was good. Glad you guys had fun!

    Also, I just stumbled across your blog. Is your blog title from a book quote? It's used in a book I own.

  23. oh my goodness, i thought that fude had to be a different one.
    but those osbourne storefronts in the background of your picture do not lie!
    i found your blog through another blog and you just happened to be from winnipeg too.
    what are the odds?
    well in our one great little city, probably pretty great.
    i'm in asia right now, so i'm following your adorable blog for a little piece of home.

    love&light!
