We needed one of those...uh.. "Rejuvinatin' Greasy Breakfasts" to counter an over consumption of a certain type of liquid.
We headed down to the Slocan for some All Day Breakfast. I had never been there, and yelp said it was alright. The only other “close as we want to walk” was some placed called Tom and Jerry’s, which features a banner of some Budweiser girls from the 90’s and boasts about $4 awful beer on tap. (not that I judge, I’ve been to many a scuzzy place, they’re just reserved for french fries and karaoke).
I’ve been having a great birthday so far. I have such great friends and they’ve been treating me so well! With food and booze. How kind!
My girlfriend took me down to La Casita on Tuesday for a meal! Her exact words were to “wine and dine me” but whatever.
Yum Yum Yum
My first real meal in my home! We have been eating out a lot. Specially pho at this one place, I think we’ve gone every second day =/
I threw together a quick curry using Glico curry. Which is my favourite instant-ready-to-go curry. The jarred ones always taste…odd.
Just a quick post before bed!
I made a sundried olive and rosemary focaccia and pasta with italian sausage, fire roasted tomatoes, mushrooms and fresh basil!
Focaccia recipe here:http://raptortoe.com/2010/10/06/tomato-focaccia/ Just replace tomatoes with same amount of pitted sundried olives and throw in some rosemary.
For the pasta, sautee two italian sausages removed from the casing until browned, add 1/2 cup roughly chopped mushrooms.
Add 1 can of fire roasted tomatoes, or just diced tomatoes, strain if too much liquid. Cook and reduce until thickened, season with salt and pepper.
Add a small handfull of fresh minced basil and toss with your favourite pasta!
Will make again, and again.
I don’t wanna call these thai, maybe moreso “thai inspired”, or “east asian inspired” but whatever. They’re DAMN good and that’s all that matters.
Unexpected bills sometimes make you broke, as a result of one we’re a bit broke until next pay. So, for frugality’s sake, I’m going to dig into the recesses of my cupboards to make dinner for the next few days. I am only going to use what’s in my pantry/freezer/fridge.
I probably should’ve done this a long time ago, there are a lot of random things in there… I think I need to do a “cupboard inventory” just to make sure I actually USE what I have!
The best reason for Thursdays.
Look ma, I’m posting! No time to explain, work-family stuff happening. Makes life busy!
But! A friend/coworker and I have thought up a weekly outing to get us through the work week.
It sounds fancy but it soooo isn't.
I tried summing this recipe up, but it kept ending up as a “that’s what she said” joke. So we’ll just say they’re good! Easy too!
We’ve been trying to eat healthier, so I’ve decided to try and make soup more often. (sans cream, or cheese, or anything like that)
Pay day isn’t until this Friday, so my meals have been slightly lack-luster, and much less planned.
We were starving when we got home, I dug through the fridge/cupboard and came up with this.
I love eating eggs. Well, breakfast food in general. Eggs, hash browns, sausages, bacon, hollandaise, it’s ALL GOOD.
Today I came home from work pretty ravenous, and decided to put the last two eggs to use.
Eggs are the ONLY thing Michael seems to cook for himself, so I was lucky enough to have two for myself. I made a version of one of my most favourite breakfasts. It’s kind of mexican inspired, but nothing authentic.
OMFG SO GOOD.
This was our last breakfast before we moved. We didn’t want to buy any groceries, nor spend any money. So I had to improvise with what was in the freezer.
We had french fries, the big fat ones. Steak fries? Frozen breakfast sausage, some green onion and some parsley.
Ice Ice, Baby
You may not be aware but Michael and I are in the middle of moving. Or in the middle of about to be moved?
Regardless, we’re packed, waiting to leave and are quite lacking in the ingredients for dinner area.
So tonight I had a look in the pantry/fridge and came up with a Pork Sausage and Fresh Tomato Alfredo Linguine. I also made some garlic bread out of some 3 day old french bread.
You can't believe how happy my belly was.
…the rest is this way!
