Good Eats!


Good Eats!

The menu of an epic meal:

~Locally bought Halibut w/ a fresh blueberry & raspberry balsamic glaze.

~Pan-fried in duck fat sea beans & a mix of fresh mushrooms.

~BBQ baked scalloped potatoes featuring 3 cheeses bought from the farmers market.

~Beet greens salad w/ beets from my grandma’s garden, tomatoes & an oil/vinegar dressing!

Once again my man has created a magnificent combination for dinner! Friends ask me why I’m not fat yet. I wink and say take a wild guess. haha just kidding!

I stay in shape by also going to boxing for an hour, 2-3 times a week. Speaking of that…I gotta get back to the gym! It’s been a few months since I’ve gone. Medical annoyances and whatnot.

Taking a gander back to the food! After eating this delicious meal I was able to take some leftovers to work with me. The girls in the office went crazy over the scalloped potatoes! Anyone in their right mind would. I swear those caramelized bits of potato are an addiction waiting to happen. Don’t be surprised if you find me hermiting it up with a heaping plate of scalloped potatoes on my lap. Now you’ve all been warned!

P.S. In Advance: I have been informed my idea of plating food to then take a photo of apparently needs improvement (thanks babe lol) so from this point on I am making Mike plate all of his creations.

On an exciting side note: My always humorous and great cousin Jim, is visiting from Ireland right now! He and I had a lovely chat on the weekend and he will be attending the Olds, Alberta, Plough Match this Friday! Quite an exciting event in our neck of the woods.

To end this post on a funny yet a little morbid note let us reminisce on the words of ― Erma Bombeck who said, “Seize the moment. Remember all those women on the ‘Titanic’ who waved off the dessert cart.”

Stay classy,



That’s Amore!
