I have to admit how lucky I am that Alex loves to cook and bake just as much as I do. This week he made Thai coconut curry chicken and chocolate-bottom berry tarts!
He makes pie pastry from scratch and it is mouthwatering! Flaky, buttery and strong enough to house a delectable chocolate berry filling that was the perfect combination of sweet and tart. Yum.
Alex was on nights this week, and I have to admit that as much as I love to cook, I can’t be bothered to make a meal just for myself. One of my favourite things to do on a night when he’s away is roast an entire head of garlic, warm up some goat cheese and make pita chips for a yummy appetizer. It’s easy and pleasy!
Let me know if you want me to post about how I do this. It’s a great appetizer for a girls’ night, or a night when your husband is away and you don’t have to worry about having garlicky breath. 😉
We were hit by snowstorm Nemo (anyone know why they called it that?) yesterday. I made it to work but the drive wasn’t very nice. Today, however, is much nicer! The sun was shining, the sky was blue and the temps were mild – a perfect day to take Stella, our goldendoodle, to the park to play in the snow!
We brought a ball for her to play with, and it was hilarious watching her chase it and dig it out from the foot of snow covering the baseball diamond.
Needless to say, she was pooped after running around for a while. We came home to our house smelling like one of my favourite scents – homemade tomato sauce and meatballs simmering on the stove for a delicious lunch of meatball subs (check out my meatball recipe here!).
