one amazing meal

i just returned from a great ski trip to whistler, british columbia, with keri and shad.  just before our return, we had an amazing meal at lumiere, a vancouver restaurant that truly excels at the often attempted but rarely successful eclectic french fare.  as a native louisianian, i like to think that i know how good food tastes.  this, my friends, was good food.  very few meals deserve a course-by-course pictorial history, but this one certainly made the cut.  enjoy!img_8671.jpg img_8648-revised.jpg
