For Christopher's birthday last week, we made tuna poké bowls.

Tuna Poké Bowls
(for two)

1/4 cup soy sauce
2 tsp sesame oil
2 tsp rice vinegar
1 tsp grated ginger
2 green onions, chopped
1 chunk of raw, sushi-grade tuna (enough for two), cubed

Combine the above ingredients and refrigerate while making the rice and chopping the ingredients below.

For serving:

Cooked sticky rice (we made two servings)
1 avocado, peeled and chopped
green onion, chopped
cucumber, julienned (or use a food processor)
carrot, julienned
pickled ginger, chopped

Layer the rice, fish, and toppings into a bowl, and pour the extra liquid from the marinade over everything.  Yum!

After getting groceries on Friday evening, we just wanted an easy dinner and some TV shows.  We made spinach with chorizo, roasted asparagus, and a plate of raw veggies.

Weekend breakfasts included pumpkin pancakes one day, and fruit, cheese, and olives another day.

We had a really fun night out on Saturday.  We met up with friends at Cathedral Social Hall for dinner and then walked across the street to do some private karaoke.  The friends all had babysitters, so it was nice to have an adult night out on the town.

Sunday was a relaxing day; we didn't do too much.  I did whip up a pumpkin cream pie, dinner buns, and cranberry sauce, and we put a cook-from-frozen turkey into the oven. None of that took too long though, so we were chilling out in no time.

We never like to cook the whole turkey feast in one day, so we just picked at the turkey and stuffing, and waited until the next day to make the gravy, cheddar jalapeno mashed potatoes, and veggies.

This was a nice belated-Thanksgiving meal.

Dessert was pumpkin cream pie:

Today was all about the leftovers 🦃😋

It's been really nice out lately, and Friday is supposed to be 15C!  We should start thinking about Halloween, but it's just not feeling like that time yet, and that's fine with me.  The leaves in our yard haven't fallen yet and are still green!

How was your weekend?  How is your week going so far?  
Have you started thinking about Halloween (costumes, candy, etc.)?

I'm glad the weather has been nice for you guys! We had some nice days last weekend. It was so nice to have warmer weather so we could be out and about and not freeze! We had a halloween event on Sunday with my mom's group so we've got halloween on the mind. Phil picked up some candy late last week and has been snacking on that. He way over-bought so we have plenty to snack on ahead of halloween!

That poke bowl looks so so good! As does all of the other food. I can't wait for American Thanksgiving at the end of November. That's my favorite meal of the year!

The poke bowls look AMAZING! I've never made those myself, only ever ordered them at restaurants, but they are one of my favourite things to get. I never get tired of looking at all the amazing food you and Christopher cook! You guys really do eat well and I still think you need to open a restaurant!
