Weekend in Review

A bit on the late side, but this weekend I revisited Abstract Expressionist New York (and Haute Culture) at the AGO, hosted an incredible dinner party with MG, G, and MC, and had a lovely visit with J, G, and G’s boyfriend… also called G.

View from the AGO:

MagiĀ© Carpet/MagiĀ© Bullet - helium mylar balloons and fluorescent lights by general idea. brilliant.

xxx (bleu) by general idea (as part of haute culture):

Some AbEx favourites:

* Lee Krasner's Gaea

* Franz Kline's White Forms

* Jackson Pollock's Echo Number 25, 1951

* Barnett Newman's Two Edges

On to dinner!

Flowers from MC

White bean dip, veggies, & toasted garlic naan

Jicama, mango, and cucumber salad with orange slices and chile (from Williams Sonoma Soups, Salads & Starters… couldn’t find a link, but a quick google search offers up lots of similar recipes!)

Grilled Mahi Mahi with Mojo

Flourless Peanut-Chocolate Cookies (to DIE for!) + Peppermint Patties (gluten/dairy-free!)

Kiwi Berry Pavlova (we used white nectarines & strawberries instead)
