All Week

Last weekend was wonderful!  It started with a nice evening out with our nephew, and then on Saturday morning Christopher made breakfast.

On Saturday evening we went out with family/friends Mel and Steve for sushi to celebrate their 35th birthdays, which are about a month apart.

We were so full after all-you-can-eat sushi, but later that evening we were craving something sweet, so I whipped up a couple mini chocolate cakes.  We shared one, and saved the other for the next day.

Sunday's breakfast was a pan scrambler.

Christopher made that while I worked on double-chocolate merlot cookies for his mom, as part of her mothers' day gift.

I used black cocoa, which I don't usually use (I normally use ruddy red from Bulk Barn), and they still turned out well, but I think I prefer them with the red cocoa.

On Sunday afternoon we went to Christopher's parents' house for a visit, and to give his mom some mothers' day gifts.  We had a lovely time catching up with them.  It had been about two months since our last visit; I don't know how that happened!

That evening we made Asian pork noodles for dinner.

On Monday we made borscht.  We used a ham bone to whip up a quick stock first, and then tossed in loads of veggies, and topped our bowls with sour cream and dill.

On Tuesday evening we had a dippy dinner.  We grilled an eggplant for a while, and made baba ganoush.  We also made raita, and some za'atar spiced pita chips.


On Wednesday we grilled shrimp, and enjoyed them with rice and salad.

We had a retirement gathering to attend on Thursday evening, and snacked a bit at that.

On Friday we picked up groceries after work, and then BBQd ribs, broccoli, and a rice/veggie mixture.

We are soaking up this gorgeous long weekend - more on that in the next post.

What are you up to this weekend?

Your posts always make me hungry!! I'm always impressed by the range of meals that you and Christopher whip up! They all look sooooo good!

The day you posted this we were on our way to Maui for our honeymoon which was an amazing 9 day trip! Our wedding was also such a wonderful and special evening. I can't wait to get photos back from our photographer so I can start to recap it!
