Long Weekend

Since we stayed in for both our anniversary and Valentine's day, we decided to go out on Saturday evening for a little date night.  Sticking with our theme of firsts, we went to the first restaurant we dined at together - Korea House.

In the past couple of weeks we've eaten at more restaurants than we usually do, including Fomoso, which wasn't very good:

And Bushwakker last night to share a pizza before Christopher played a show at Revival Music Room, an awesome music venue.

This was both his and the guitarist's last show with the band.

They are moving on to do their own things, and Christopher was super pumped to get some new music started in the basement today. We went out shopping on Saturday and picked out a bass guitar for him (the one he was using in the band was borrowed), and he's been loving playing it and already has a couple songs almost fully written for a new project he's been experimenting with.

We had a tonne of fun at the show last night, and also got to visit a bit with Christopher's parents, and our friends Jeff and Alaina who came out to catch the last gig.

In other news, we tried a delicious new pasta recipe recently, rigatoni with sausage and fennel.

It's a recipe we'll hang on to and make again.  Other recent eats include spaghetti with puttanesca meat sauce:

Rice, acorn squash, pork chops and apple sauce for dipping:

Potato soup with biscuits:

Asian noodles:

Salmon and loads of veggies:

Workday breakfasts have looked like this ...

Today is the Family Day holiday in Saskatchewan, so we have been enjoying the day off.  I have the rest of the week off too, and plan to get a lot done around the house.

I'll be back tomorrow to tell you a bit more about our long weekend!

How was your weekend?  What have you been cooking lately?

Yum! All of that food looks good! The potato soup looks especially good to me because I LOVE soups. Sounds like you guys had a fun long weekend. I bet the last band gig was bittersweet but it's cool that Christopher is moving on to do something new!

We had a long weekend, too, as yesterday was President's day. We got some things done around the house in preparation for the baby's arrival. The only thing we have left to do is install the car seat which we'll do next weekend when it's a bit warmer. And I actually cooked a couple of meals! On Friday night I made baked tilapia with roasted potatoes and asparagus. And then yesterday I made jumbalaya in the crockpot which was so good! My stupid flare has gotten more painful again so I am glad we have lots of jumbalaya leftoves as I won't feel up to cooking again until this flare gets better. But in about 10 days, we should have our baby and then i can go back on some good RA drugs. Can't wait!!!

Your food always looks so good. I'm also off this week, I always take it off for my birthday (feb 21). I also plan on doing a ton of cleaning and decluttering this week and have already done some. Today I think I will tackle the storeroom which I avoid!
