Phheww, I am glad I am not the only burning things in the kitchen...
DROP AND ROLL!!!!!!!!! Oh, never mind!
I'm great in the kitchen, but I still burn a lot!!!! There may not be much to do around here, but if you visit - you'll drink and eat very well. I love doing small intimate dinners for friends.
Hey, you say food and martini and I am there!! I am the only 5' 2" person I know that can eat a 24 oz. steak all by herself (and appetizer, salad, mashed potatoes and dessert, oh yes sir). I promise I wont clean your refrigerator though...
Get in line sister (even though your almost an inch taller than me) I can pack away the food!
But alas...the only thing I can cook is toast...and I can't even do that very well
Ok, so Isa is cooking...and we are eating?? I'm THERE!
Oh boy, she is in trouble...two big eaters??? Watch out Isa...
HA! You 2 haven't seem me cook! I don't know how to make small portions of anything!!! You will not go hungry (or thirsty) and we will not run out of food. I am the queen of leftovers and I'm armed with a chest freezer.
And, they don't put vodka in 1/2 gal bottles for nothin"! If we run out of liquor -there's always a raid on the brewery... I have connections.
Mr. Isa here...
No really girls, she can cook any 20 people under the table......and likely drink them there too.
Although , I can't remember the last time she burned anything....sure, Sunday's ribs were a tad on the dry side, but still delicious.
I don't know of a better hostess anywhere. Martha Stewart is a rank amateur by comparison. And while Mrs. Isa cooks, I'll man the bar. Wiki-wiki drinks all around. And perhaps a bit of beer....
Already then! You may just get what you wished for Food and alcohol, I mean...is there anything better than that??
So Mr. Isa, are you going to Montreal too?? I am still working on Mr. Anne, he doesnt know yet. He may be changing jobs this year but it all depends IF he gets the job he wants.
Mr. Isa here....
Actually Anne, I have no choice, as Mrs. I and I are attached at the hip. And sometimes the waist. And always around those cheeky nether-regions (sorry, killer day at work and I've just had a delicious Mrs. I lunch -- no blood in head).
Actually, I wouldn't miss Montreal for most anything. I was there for 2 days in 1984 or '85 (severe lack of memory here -- please be kind), and all I really remember was walking through the Olympic Park snapping pics of flowers and watching street performers spit fire (or possibly Orangina) and dance around alot (ooh, and beg for cash too). I recall not understanding a word of French, in that peculiar Quebecois (sp?), and I think I ordered a lamb and soap sandwich for dinner. But good nonetheless.
Yes, we'll try are hardest to be there Friday evening (maybe morning) through Sunday afternoon.
I (we) would love to see as many TPers as possible.
Now, you Montrealers, where are we all staying for US$100 or less/night? Someplace central? Old (vieux)? Avec les mouflons? ooh sorry Gelli.....
Great! Yes, I had that question too...we should probably ask on the Montreal thread though So is Montreal purely french??
You can get by in Montreal in English - although you'll enjoy it much more and you'll probably get to know and love the culture here if you can pick up a few words and practice them while you're here.
For some Quebecisms:
Salut! = Hey!
Comment ca va? = How are you?
Ca fait longtemps! = It's been awhile!
Estie de Saint-Sacrement de Caulis de Tabarnacle... = what you say when you stub your toe on the bedpost
