Alas, it was the post that would never be written. Something came up and my friend was unable to make it and we are going to reschedule for another time (but definitely not another place!).
So what was a girl to do? Well never fear cuz Cathy's here!
In truth I had double booked myself this evening. (I'm just that popular...riiiiight) A friend and coworker who moved out of province to our Alberta office last summer was in town tonight and was stopping by for a drink after work. I had planned to mix and mingle with that crowd for an hour and then head to Fresh but when plans changed I quickly decided a night with Cathy & Co. was in order.
Ok, so it wasn't exactly the best night outside. C'est la vie because indoors was just fine. The beverages flowed almost as well as the conversation but I limited myself to just one in honour of the special guest.
Because I was now staying for dinner I looked over the menu, on the hunt for something appetizing and healthy. My first inclination was a veggie burger with salad but when I eat out I usually aim for something different then my typical fare. And there it was, in all it's goat cheese glory...
May I introduce you to the new love of my life: (sorry Boyfriend but if you were there you would understand) Grilled Mediterranean Chicken. Smothered in goat cheese, resting on a bed of Asian vegetables and chickpeas and finessed with pomegranate molasses this is delicious personified!
So all and all, even though plans were changed at the last minute this turned out to be a fantastic night. I guess the best laid plans are plans that weren't really laid at all!
