It’s Monday (November 2, 2020)

Hello, it’s Monday again! Hope you had a nice Halloween weekend. It was a very different Halloween this year, as it probably was for you. We didn’t take the kids trick or treating around the neighbourhood. But we still managed to have fun, in a different way.

On Friday, we went to a friend’s house to do some Halloween art. The kids painted a cute Halloween scene with bats, pumpkins, cats! And we enjoyed pizza, desserts (I made a Meyer lemon meringue pie and chocolate cupcakes).

The husband’s birthday was also this past weekend, we had sushi for lunch. Then we enjoyed some gold grade wagyu ribeye that we had ordered from Snake River Farms. It came shipped in a huge box full of dry ice which ensured the steaks were still frozen solid when we got them. I butter basted the steaks in our cast iron pan. We ate it with asparagus, baked potatoes, mushrooms, salad,

Lots of eating this weekend!




I tried the first episode of the Watchmen series and it was really good! But I have to finish watching a few other things first before getting into this one


Finally finished listening to Braiding Sweetgrass (highly recommended!) and am looking for my next audiobook


Black Forest cake




After a sinful weekend of eating, I am looking to cook simpler foods this week. Maybe more noodle soups which would be welcome when the temperatures get cooler this week.

Last week:

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week. This meme started with J Kaye’s Blog   and then was taken up by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at the Book Date


  1. Looks like you cooked the steak perfectly.
    I have got up to Ep 7 of Watchmen. I think I enjoy it too much for it to be over. Have you read the Allan Moore comics?
    Noodle soups are a good thing. They are popular among several cultures and it’s something I learned to make more of when I had students staying.

    1. I wasn’t quite expecting it as I sort of remembered the movie and I guess I was thinking it would be more like the movie? I dunno.
      We didn’t have a proper noodle soup yet. But I made cold soba with a dipping sauce.
