Weekend Things

After work on Friday we made a meal plan for about a week, and then hit the grocery store to stock up on supplies.  We wanted something pretty quick to eat, as it was about 8:00 p.m. by the time we arrived home.  Bacon brussels sprouts and steelhead trout made a nice and easy dinner before relaxing for the evening.

I haven't been into breakfast foods much lately, so on Saturday morning Christopher decided to make spicy salmon hand rolls for breakfast.

They were so satisfying!  We had green tea to drink.

Before going to bed the night before we sliced a couple pieces of sourdough bread and left them out to get stale.  We then used the stale bread to make breadcrumbs.

Sourdough breadcrumbs are way cooler than regular breadcrumbs.  Why can't all breads and bread-like foods be sourdough?  Sourdough waffles, sourdough garlic bread, sourdough doughnuts, sourdough pizza dough - mmm mmm, hook me up! #agirlcandream

Anyway, we made some creamy, dreamy mac and cheese:

And then topped that with the breadcrumbs before baking it:

Shaved truffles on top before serving:

To make up for the lack of plants in this meal, we had a 100% plant breakfast the next morning.  Our smoothies contained banana, strawberries, coconut water, and kale.

Dinner on Sunday evening was carbonnade beef and beer stew, which is very different from the stew we typically make, but good enough to make again.  It's mostly meat and onions, in a slightly sweet and sour sauce.  The sauce is really flavourful, and was great over roasted potatoes.

Besides the cooking, we spent a good portion of the weekend reading.  We both have two books down so far for 2019, so that's a good start!

How was your weekend?  What did you do?  
Do you love sourdough like I do?

Our weekend was great as we were up at the lake. We ate so well up there! I think my favorite meal was the Heuvos ranchero that my mom made on Saturday morning. It was sooo good. I also snacked on a lot of GF christmas sweets, like peanut brittle. Yum. We were going to make cinnamon rolls for Sunday morning but my mom and I both forgot about them until Saturday night so we decided to skip them. Maybe we will get our act together and make some when they come for Paul's birthday in March.

I can't have sourdough because of my gluten intolerance but I don't remember having it before I found out I had celiac!! I bet it is delicious, though!!
