Jack Astor's, Toronto, ON

My good pal, Leanne, is in town. We worked together here in Toronto until she moved in 1997. She lives in Burnaby and I haven't seen her since July 2005. ... way too long! She recently got a new job and was in town for a week of training.

Gord and I met her for supper at Jack Astor's at John/Richmond W.

Leanne had Pad Thai with Shrimp (Thailand's most famous rice noodles with bean sprouts,
fried egg, green onions and a sweet and sour tamarind sauce. Topped with green onions, red peppers and crushed peanuts).

Gord had Chicken Stir Fry (stir-fried slices of fresh chicken breast, peppers, onions, zucchini and carrots. Served with jasmine rice and topped with bean sprouts, green onions, red peppers and crushed peanuts).

I had Thai Chicken Coconut Curry (an authentic recipe – slices of fresh chicken breast, sautéed with pineapple and tomatoes in a spicy Thai red curry and peanut sauce. Served with jasmine rice). Yum!

Here's Gord and Leanne ...

Here's me and Leanne as we were leaving ... it's been snowing all day.

It was great to see Leanne and I hope to head out her way in the next couple months.
