Following our obsession with super awesome Italian food, Mike made this delectable meal! We chowed down on manicotti pasta stuffed with cottage cheese and basil. The creation was then covered in a rockin’ meat sauce and fresh basil. Since this is quite the saucy meal we had some fresh focaccia bread on the side to mop up all the messy goodness.
Can you say foodgasm!
Mere days before Mike and I departed on our vacation we had this delectable meal.
Any barbecue lover will appreciate the efforts of such a dish. Mike marinated steak and pork ribs for a few hours before braving our Edmonton, Alberta winter.
Yes, he stood outside and barbecued in -25 to -30 degrees celsius!
The marinade of course was a secret because all great marinade recipes are…at least that’s what I’m told. However, he did let me know the purple beets and golden potatoes were roasted off in the barbecue. He even made the effort to put together some homemade garlic butter for the bread. As you can see everything on the plate has that delicious char promising every bite will be barbecued bliss. I do enjoy an alliteration here or there 🙂
