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.
