Soma Sunday

Despite being rather frigid, we decided to get out and about. We went for a giant stroll eastward along Queen Sreet West, checking out the stores and galleries, including Propeller and MOCCA.

Mark was on a mission to have some hot chocolate at Soma. Soma is among the few chocolate makers that makes chocolate in batches directly from the cacao bean or, as they say, "from bean to bar". They offer a hot chocolate elixir, which is essentially like having a melted top-quality chocolate bar. We each enjoyed a mug and wandered home quite content.

While I made some delicious Moroccan food from the great cookbook The Food of Morocco, Mark snuggled up on the couch to watch "The Blob" (1958) starring Steve McQueen. Such a great B-movie. We had a blast watching this cheesy classic.
