A Couple Weekends

Last weekend we were in Saskatoon to see my mom and celebrate her 63rd birthday.  I baked a carrot cake to take her, as that's her favourite.

We stopped at A&W for breakfast-to-go before hitting the highway.

We spent the day with my mom and made sure she had a birthday full of all the treats she loves.  That evening we tried Ko for dinner.

The wings were really good but could have been spicier.


I had the ramen, and it hit the spot.  We'll be back again!

We hit the hay early, and went to Grainfields the next morning for breakfast, before going back to my mom's care home for the day.

Once we were home that evening, Christopher made a quick vegetarian Thai curry for dinner.

Other eats last week included breaded pork chops with broccoli mashed potatoes and creamed corn:

Chicken salad:

And a dinner out at Bushwakker with my dad (no photo) ...

On Friday evening we went to Jack Keaton's for a quick meal before a concert we were heading to.  The po boy wasn't great, and I really didn't like the poutine, but the bacon-wrapped brisket bites were quite good.

After eating we walked to The Exchange to see Hawksley Workman put on a killer show! 

Yesterday morning we had smoked salmon and paratha for breakfast.

Then last night we went over to our friends' Jocelyn and Michael's house for a surprise birthday for Michael.  It was a super-soft birthday (something from the TV show Letterkenny). 

There were so many good snacks, including these spicy green beans done in an air fryer:

And bacon-wrapped scallops - mmm!

Christopher loved the jerk chicken wings!

We had a really nice time catching up with friends and were home way past our bedtime.

French toast this morning:

Today we just lounged around, and this evening we're making cream chicken and rice for dinner.

How was your weekend?  What did you do?

That was sweet of you to make a cake for your mom. I bet she loved that! Carrot cake is one of my favorites, too! Last weekend was Thanksgiving so we had a full weekend of family fun. It was nice to see lots of family. My parents spent a night with us, too. It was great having them around. My dad worked on some projects around the house which was much appreciated!
