The bandana is also so incredibly useful in the kitchen and dining area.  Use bandana’s as table napkins or wipe up spills and messes in the kitchen.  They are durable and washable.  There are so many patterns to choose from. IMG_5552

Ladies night out!  Decided to have have a lovely dinner at Toronto’s Fishbar on the trendy Ossington strip, a strip that has so much offer and lot’s of beautiful people.  The atmosphere was modest.  Not too loud, not too quiet.  We ordered a bottle of Malbec of  and the Arugula Salad (gala apples, parmigiano-cheese and a delicious walnut dressing).  Always a perfect salad choice to start your palettes.  We decided to share two entrees.  The Fishbar Taco (mahi mahi & shrimp ceviche, guacamole, chili, corn shell) and the Coconut Water Tuna Tartare (mango, jalapeno, pickled cucumber and micro cilantro greens).  Absolutely amazing!  We even had room for dessert.  What a wonderful evening and and amazing dinner.  *****
