Meal updates from last week:
Favourites from last week were: Shepherd’s pie and the chicken buddha bowls. We enjoyed the turkey sloppy joe’s, and I didn’t end up making the lo mein as we decided to have waffles instead. All of the pumpkin muffins from last week are gone! I’m not sure if I will make more, or try a different recipe. This weekend I finally got the chance to make grape jelly, and pumpkin cookies to serve to friends that came for dinner tonight. Was a highly successful Sunday of cooking!
This week we will be eating at home Sunday-Wednesday, we are going away for the long weekend, spending time with family and enjoying a non-traditional Canadian Thanksgiving.
- Italian bolognese sauce from @fooddotcom we ate this with spaghetti, caesar salad and fresh bread. The sauce took a long time, but let me tell you it was worth every minute! I didn’t realize until after I serve dinner that I forgot to add the milk to the sauce. I am not sure that it would’ve made a big difference, perhaps it would have made it creamier?
- Barbecued chicken with autumn glow salad from @pinchofyum it looks like Monday is going to be one of the last warmish days, so I am going to take advantage and grill some chicken. We will eat this with a salad full of fall flavours.
- Thai coconut curry shrimp noodle bowl from @howsweeteats I am not sure if my kids will like this meal, I am crossing my fingers and will let you know.
- BLT salad from @marthastewart this is a family favourite that I haven’t made in a long time. My kids love eating the homemade croutons.
I still have a cup of pumpkin left over from my muffins and cookies, if time allows I will bake another pumpkin recipe this week. I also have a recipe for banana date muffins that I’ve been told are the best muffins ever. I bought all of the ingredients, so stay tuned to see if they are worth all of the hype! Today my mom dropped by and gave me a new cookbook! I cannot wait to look through Fraiche Food, Full Hearts by Jillian Harris and Tori Wesszer, the recipes that I have looked at so far look amazing!
