The one with all the food.

One of my goals this year was to get crafty and creative in the kitchen.  In past year's I have set more specific goals, like the year I made all the bread and the winter devoted to soups.
This year, I have just been trying different recipes here and there, and then making them my own.

Today I wanted to share with you some of my wins:

 1) Favourite salad- I found these at Costco and now Walmart has them.  There's also one that has kale, broccoli, beets, chards, feta, raisins.  Delicious salads that I cook because I prefer my salads warm.

2) Pulled Pork Buffalo Poutine:  Next time I will make my own fries with potatoes from the garden.  I just made a pork tenderloin in the slow cooker (add soda/onion) and then when it's cooked and falls apart, add your BBQ sauce of choice.  Pile it on top of french fries and add some squeaky cheese (must be white curds), some green onion and buffalo sauce to top.  This was sooo good.


3) Nachos: The kids go-to meal is Taco Night. So we tried something different and made nachos.  Huge hit.  I had intended to make skillet nachos but forgot. This is be up next time we have nacho night.

4.  Crêpes.  The kids always want crepes and it's usually reserved for when we have company.  I cracked and made them for kicks this weekend.  Usually we pile them high with strawberries, saskatoon berries and bananas.  This weekend it was just crêpes and sucre à la crème.  When I find my recipe, I'll share it with you.
                                              

5.  The Grits experimentation.  My lovely friend from Denton, Texas, Carrie sent us some grits so we had a little fun with it on Saturday when the Golightlys came over for the first time since they moved out.  I loved them!  Thanks, Carrie!!!

I also loved the Jamison snuggles!


And to close this post, I want to share with you something that randomly showed up in the mail for Dan.   His sister, Monique and her husband, Kevin, sent him this as a surprise.  It was a huge hit.  I may or may not be randomly sending these to friends....go check out the Carnivore Club!



Have a great week!
