Good morning! How is everyone today? I fell flat so far on my Wednesday morning WIA
Wednesday Tuesday so today will truly be a WIAW but will be posted later today.
Can we just talk about my companies Christmas party yesterday for a minute? WOW fun! I wish I had some more pictures to share but I just felt a little funny taking them at a corporate event. So it all started with everyone being handed a box of very fancy chocolates from Epiphany!
I haven’t opened it yet but you can bet that that box will be thoroughly enjoyed in the final day until Christmas. Turns out that according to Urban Spoon I need to give it a visit!
We then headed over to the Sheraton Hotel in downtown Calgary for the best Christmas lunch I have ever had. On the table were two types of bread with a trio of butters (regular, truffle, and cranberry) and an olive tapenade to accompany. I tried all of the butters and a few pieces of bread and I decided the tapenade was my favorite. Next came the salad which was so fresh and had a wonderful Cranberry dressing. For the main I decided on the salmon BEST! It was cooked perfectly with some pickled cucumber and lemon aioli on top. On the side where whipped potatoes and vegetables. I almost ate every bite (there were like two mouthfuls left) but I knew desert was to come. And desert was HUGE!!! There was a yule log that must of been an inch thick on everyone’s plate, a mini eggnog crème Brule (must recreate), and whipped cream with a strawberry. Yes again I ate almost all of it and feel no shame! Some of us then headed to the pub downstairs for some more Christmas cheer.
It was such a fun party and I am so grateful to work with the people I do.
Well that’s all for now. Like I said I will be back later today with my WIAW post.
Take care everyone!
