Dinner with sunburned friends! from afar!

Our lovely family friends are visiting Canada from their new home in Australia (yeah, they thought our heat wave yesterday was "the perfect temperature"!).

My mom and I teamed up to throw them an awesome dinner party to show them Canadians can have fun in the sun too!

Greek Salad with romain, tomatoes, yellow peppers, black olives, cucumbers and feta cheese.

Love this vintage juicer right from my grandmother's kitchen. I used it to make the greek dressing for our salad.

Tarragon and garlic rubbed pork chops.

Roasted red potatoes and brussel sprouts.

Angel food cake with vanilla yogurt and a strawberry and maple syrup topping. Raspberries made the perfect garnish for our guests who apparently can't find them in Australia!

A special treat for my dad: our family's famous banana bread with some more strawberry and maple topping.

Thanks for joining us ladies!

Cheers to Canada with a fruity cocktail of cranberry juice, dubonnet, sprite and frozen strawberries.



  1. Wow, it looks like you guys really took care of them! Everything looks wonderful. Hope you have a fabulous visit with your friends!
