It’s pretty unfortunate that I don’t have internet access this particular weekend because it’s the food convention weekend. I have a press pass and should really be showing you lots of drool-worthy photos of food and drink to convince you to go if you are in Vancouver. instead I’m blogging from my phone with no pictures.
You’re just going to have to trust me and get your butt to BC Place tomorrow or Sunday because when I DO show you what we ate you are going to wish you were there. The tickets are $14 if you buy them online and are well worth it because there are enough free samples to stuff you. Plus extra things from Vancouver restaurants and breweries and wineries to buy if you want.
Lauren and I went today and had a great time. Some of the best things i ate were coconut milk ice cream, maple spread, sabra guacamole, and strawberry lemonade. Scott and I will go again tomorrow morning. See you there! I will post pics as soon as I can next week.
You will see a lot of cabbage, salad, and burgers in this collection. In lots of different formats though! When I meal plan I like to try and use similar ingredients in a bunch of different meals so nothing gets wasted. We actually succeeded in using up a whole head of cabbage, and all our vegetables and leftovers… which I think is great.
Favourite recipe #10: slow cooker ribs, they were super easy, tender, and delicious
This was from the Epicurious Cookbook I borrowed from the library. Excellent cookbook and excellent recipe!
I have a new recipe for you and it is REALLY SUPER SIMPLE. And REALLY SUPER TASTY.
Handy homemade popsicle tip: fill your popsicle tray up with water and then pour it into a measuring cup so you know exactly what volume of popsicle mixture to make up. Then write the number on the side so you don’t forget in the future!!
Mine is a cheapy popsicle mold from Superstore and it works just fine. I think it cost $2. And it holds a teeny bit over 2 cups of liquid.
Mix 2 cups of chocolate milk and a few nice big tablespoons of Nutella in a big measuring cup/bowl/whatever. Whisk until the Nutella dissolves (I swear it will!). Pour into popsicle mold and freeze!
I made them last night and had my first one today after the gym. IT WAS AWESOME.
I find it pretty funny that our very responsible dinner of waffles is now front and centre on this blog post. I can’t get away with anything when I’m posting my dinners every day for an entire year, haha! There were some nice healthy recipes towards the end of the fortnight though.
PS I’ve also included a bonus recipe link for zucchini brownies about half way through this post.
Pfft. Who needs dinner. We ate waffles for dinner because we are ADULTS. Not.
This was supposed to be in a burrito, but the tortillas were all mangled and ripped so we had to eat the components separately. It was a bit of a sad dinner, but the panko breaded fish was nice! (I had another piece of fish underneath the cheese, btw).
It was a pretty good collection of food this time except for a few little slips. Ah well.
I don’t have many recipes linked for you this time because we either didn’t use a recipe or it was from a cook book I got from the library. The book is called High Flavor Low Labor and seems to have some interesting recipes. I was really intrigued with the idea of eating meat and veg with hummus instead of a starch, I would have never come up with that on my own. I love getting cook books from the library because you don’t have to pay a cent!!
