Week Re-Cap

Happy weekend friends!  This was a busy work-week for us.  On Monday evening we took my dad out for supper to Swiss Chalet.  He loves getting his chicken and ribs from this place, and I could drink the sauce there (okay, I do drink the sauce).

We wanted some of the limited time, Chalet Sauce Lays chips, but they were out - boo!  We'll just have to go back soon.

On Tuesday evening we drove to Moose Jaw right after work.  We stopped for supper at BPs before heading to see Dolly Parton in concert!!

She put on a great show, and is an absolute sweetheart.  It was a later night than we're used to during the week, but it was definitely worth it.

On Wednesday evening we BBQd burgers and had salad on the side:

On Thursday evening we went to our friends Jessie and Chris' place to meet their new baby Eli, and have some snacks and visits.  They sent us home with a load of tomatoes.

Extra produce never goes to waste in our house.  We have big plans for all these tomatoes.

Breakfasts this week have mostly been cereal, with a banana:


I topped the banana with chunky peanut butter, a drizzle of cinnamon honey, and hemp seeds.  I also had a few green smoothies this week (kale, banana, almond milk, a T of cocoa, and a tsp of vanilla).

Yesterday evening we made lamb meatballs, and BBQd those along with romaine lettuce, which we used in a caesar salad.

While we cooked we snacked on olive tapenade and pita chips.

Dinner was fantastic!

We threw this apple crisp in the oven while we were BBQing, and enjoyed it with ice cream later on in the evening.

We're spending the weekend at home soaking up the last of summer.

How was your week? What are you up to this weekend?

I've never seen a meatball contraption like that - that is so cool! As usual, all your food looks delicious. I'm in apple-mode so that apple crisp looks delicious.

Last week was a blur as it was a busy week for us and then this weekend was busy, too. I didn't do a whole lot of cooking but I did throw together a thai beef stew in the crockpot and I made some apple pie oatmeal to have for breakfast this week - both recipes were sooooo good!

These are my fav. posts. How does BBQ salad taste?

@ Jennifer - It's great! You don't grill it too long, it still stays firm and crunchy, but gives it a bit of smoky flavour.
