We’ve been using this set of 1970s pottery in the office. And we have to say we’re pretty charmed.
We are not fans of pottery per se, but we do have a fondness for retro mugs, platters, casseroles and bowls we’ve grown up seeing adorn ranch house/ski chalet/lake cabin shelves.
This red Alberta clay is especially lovely as is its prairie landscape theme.
They were created in Lavoy, AB in the late ’70s.
Should there come a day when we clumsily lose (read: break) these, we will at least have a photo to remind us!
A quick Chinese New Year feast, courtesy of T&T supermarket:
Chinese soy chicken, hacked before our eyes by a kindly, cleaver-wielding butcher
Ha Gow, shui mai
$8 soy sauce because we’ve been curious (it is worth the extra $$ for its viscous consistency: perfect for dumplings. Would be a waste using in larger recipes, I think.
We are a wee bit obsessed with five-spice roasted chicken.
And, really, all things Chinese New Year!
