Last Week's Eats

Last Sunday morning I made a frittata for breakfast:

The rest of the day was mostly spent in the backyard.  Christopher was smoking jerk chicken, and we sat outside enjoying the delicious smell while reading books, listening to tunes, and soaking in the glorious sunshine.

He also threw some Thai skewers into the smoker for me, and then finished them on the BBQ for a couple minutes when he finished the chicken.

I wanted something different for my weekday breakfasts, so along with the Thai skewers, we made a batch of Thai sticky rice, and I had that for a few days, with peanut sauce for dipping.

We ate leftovers for lunch a couple of days last week.  Another day I made a bison calzone:

And one day Christopher and I met up for Chinese food:

Suppers included the jerk chicken on Sunday night, which we had with coconut rice and corn:


You can find the recipe here.

We grilled wild boar meatballs one night, and had those with rice, chimichurri sauce, and mushrooms with halloumi cheese.

Dinner another evening was bee bim bop.  Our basic recipe for bee bim bop is here.

Dessert for the week was a banana cream pie.

We spent the weekend in Saskatoon visiting my mom 💜

What have you been cooking lately?

Yum, all of those meals look good, especially that savory breakfast! We did not do much cooking when we were up at the lake. We ate out a couple of times, grilled burgers one night, and had leftovers. We ate a lot of sandwiches for lunch. It was kind of nice to eat simple meals, especially since we were in a kitchen I'm not super familiar with! This week I'm planning to make chicken curry w/ broccoli, pineapple and shrimp skewers, stuffed eggplant and a gnocchi dish w/ chicken and bacon. And we are having a friend over for dinner on Thursday but are keeping it simple and will have grilled brats, corn on the cob & chips. It felt good to get back to meal planning after our week away!
