FOUR, Toronto

I met Franca, Liz, Rona and Liz's friend, Stacey, for supper tonight at FOUR (Bay/Wellington). I hadn't been there since it was Soul of the Vine years ago.

Welcome to FOUR where we offer a balanced approach to guilt-free dining. We pride ourselves in our commitment to healthful dining by offering all of our dishes under 650 calories; however, our approach to nutrition and wellness is so much more than just calories and carbohydrates - it really is about the kind of food that makes you feel great about what you eat. In other words, we want to help you put the positive into your body so that you can radiate that positive energy right back by looking and feeling fabulous.

Liz, Franca and Rona and I worked together in the mid to late 1990s and get together every three months or so.

Here are Rona, Stacey, Liz, me and Franca.

I started with Baked Chicken Wings (honey soya glaze | star anise + chili). The sauce was cold and the wings were cool ... I'm not sure whether they were supposed to be that way or if they should have been hot. But they were good.

Then I had Grilled Chicken Breast (root vegetables | jasmine rice | apricots | toasted almond + tikka masala yoghurt sauce) ... I passed on the veggies, of course. It was good ... the sauce had a nice bite to it.

Troy, our server, came by to tempt us with dessert which was a tray of shot glasses of mousse for just $2 each!

Liz and I chose Lemon Meringue, Stacey chose Bumble Berry Cheesecake, Rona chose Black Forest Cake and Franca chose Chocolate Mousse.

Yum! We didn't want dessert, just a taste of something sweet and these were perfect.

As always, it was great to see my pals and catch up, though we missed Deb.
