When we woke up to find snow we knew it was going to be a good day.

The civilised & very delicious start to the night...

A 'proud moment in the women's movement history'..

The early AM deli turkey sandwich (with 'lettuce, tomato & cheese' - apparently 'salad' does not suffice as a topping request)...

There were some dark moments for our friend from Chicago at the airport that morning, but she insists it was worth it!

Searching for the beverage that would sort us out the next day...

Salmon Carbonara, Turkey Sandwiches & Dancefloors

When we woke up to find snow we knew it was going to be a good day.

Little did we know the day was going to involve interstate and international friends, breakfast out at a lovely new little cafe, a flea market, a platter, champagne, homemade salmon carbonara, hours of dancing in a warehouse loft party, new friends, all topped off with an early-AM deli turkey sandwich (our first ever!).

The civilised & very delicious start to the night…

Salmon carbonara

500g fillet fresh salmon, shredded with a fork
1 tablespoon olive oil
200g smoked salmon, sliced
2 tablespoons butter
3 shallots, finely chopped
1 egg
2 tablespoons sour cream
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh dill
salt & pepper
1 packet spaghetti

Beat the egg in a small bowl with salt and pepper and set aside.

Heat oil in a frying pan over a medium heat. Add salmon and fry for a couple of minutes, so it is still quite pink. Remove the salmon and set aside.

Add butter to the frying pan over a medium-low heat. Add shallow and cook until translucent, about 5 minutes.

Add the beaten egg, sour cream and the dill to the pan and mix until the egg is just cooked and remove from heat.

Cook pasta until al dente, drain well, then add to frying pan with salmon mixture. Toss well and serve immediately!

Then to the party, featuring Motor City Drum Ensemble, put on by the Mister Saturday Night lads…

A highlight for the night was definitely the 12-hour cameo of a friend from Chicago, who couldn’t miss the reunion opportunity. Her night involved airport –> dinner –> dancefloor –> airport.
