Meal updates from last week:
Our favourite meals from last week were the shrimp bowl, and the chicken and peach skewers. I haven’t had a lot of luck making coconut rice, I find that it never tastes that coconuty, this was the same for this recipe. I LOVED the grilled peaches with the chicken they turned out so well. We also really liked the peach pecan crumble, my son finished off the entire pan. I ended up making a simple charcuterie on Friday night, all ingredients were bought from the @italianctryyc and it was amazing! We had peaches, prosciutto, basil, focaccia, olives, tomatoes and burrata. Flavours were outstanding! Saturday night we went out for dinner to a local spot that has just reopened called The Goose, food was so good, and you can sit on their patio social distance style. If you live in the SW then check it out.
This week we will be eating at home Monday to Wednesday, we are going out of town for a few nights and will be back at the beginning of the weekend. Next week is our daughter’s birthday and she has requested a Paw Patrol cake (insert scared face here!). I am going to bake the pieces of the cake tomorrow so that it is done, and then will freeze it. I find that icing a mostly frozen cake is much easier as you don’t get so many crumbs. As always I will be using our favourite chocolate cake recipe with pudding frosting.
- Baja grain bowls from @howsweeteats I made these tonight and they were amazing! There isn’t any protein with this recipe so I bought some frozen tempura shrimp, baked them off and served them on top of the rice. They were a great accompaniment to the bowl. I really liked the dressing and would make it to serve on a salad.
- Grilled chicken, vegetable and avocado salad board from @weelicious this is a new recipe from Catherine that sounds amazing! I’m not going to be using eggplant as it is not a favourite in our house, instead I bought a yellow and green zucchini.
- Roasted sausage tomato and peach supper from @thedaleyplate since it is peach season I need to take advantage! I went to the Farmer’s Market on the weekend and stocked up on peaches, so I am ready to cook and bake with them.
I am not sure what the cooking plan is while we are away, but here are a few other recipes that I have on my must-try list:
Grilled salmon with citrus salsa
Coconut lime chicken
Zucchini ribbon pizza with chicken
Buttermilk blueberry breakfast cake
The grocery list will return next week.
