Start of Summer Dishes

Start of Summer Dishes

It’s been in the higher 30C temps the last few weeks, so we have been making more lighter cooler meals. Here are some photos of what we’ve been making in the kitchen 🙂 Chocolate Icecream, yogurt and frozen veggie smoothies I made this morning Morgyn made us some Spam and eggs while I made myself a energizing 2 tea medley using Oolong and Japanese Green Tea with rice.. Here is the tasty Spam Morgyn fried up! We like to dip it in Mustard Then the other day we realized we had all the ingredients for Salad Rolls! So we made them up and Morgyn also completed a delicious Peanut Satay from scratch..we are also going to use the satay in another dish this weekend.   Here is the start of a Summer Ale we made that we are tasting today and it is very delicious! Another 2 tea medley..this one is a organic ginger tea Morgyns Mom bought for us along with an Oolong teabag, a slice of fresh lemon and some lime leaves! Yum! We bought some fresh Summer veggies at the store last week..we fried them up! This vegetable is called Rapini. It reminds me of Spinach and Asparagus..the longer you leave it in the fridge however the more bitter it gets raw..we fried ours up in a pan on high heat with garlic and butter..delicious! Morgyn loves a good BLT and so do I! We bought a few storebought beers when we were waiting for our beer to be done. This one is a Pale Ale and is from the Tree Brewing Co. in Kelowna! Very...
Saturday Stew

Saturday Stew

We have been pretty busy outside, and we needed a meal that would feed us for a few days so Morgyn made us a giant beef stew! We also made some Pilsner brews for when we need a break from the heat! It’s me! It’s been so hard getting used to the heat this year! It’s been a lot hotter than last year that’s for sure! Making a pan sauce first. Frying up the beef! Browning the beef more and adding garlic and salts.. Adding the vegetables! This time we didn’t put potatoes in the stew itself but made a batch of mash potatoes for the stew to go on top of! Adding more vegetables, whole tomatoes and white beans! Yum.. Here is the start of the Pilsner home brewed ale we made..it is now finished! Cheers! Me in my Summer wear! Here is the finished plate! Morgyn added some of our favorite oil from the EVOO and vinegar specialty shop in #Kamloops. Morgyn’s beef stew is delicious!

Octopus Pasta

Octopus Pasta

It was our first time making baby Octopus the other night for dinner! Baby Octopus is a lot like the Squids that we buy, I think it is like the Squid tentacles. However the octopus is more meaty. There wasn’t enough in the bag though, next time we might buy a few bags of them. They are around 7.00 CAD a bag in the frozen seafood isle at Superstore. Enjoy the photos! First we boiled the baby Octopus in a broth with some shallots, ginger and some other ingredients like garlic that we first fried in a hot hot pan     After 45 minutes or so, Morgyn took out the Octopus and strained them. It’s been pretty hot out..up in the 30C’s and we bought a few drinks to cool down! This was our first time trying a premixed Motts drink, and wow was this ever a spicy bevvy! If you like hot peppers you will enjoy this one 🙂 Here Morgyn is making her signature tomato sauce for the pasta! Steamworks brews never disappoint! Next step is to fry the Octopus a bit, not too long though! Some butter was added to our cast iron as well for extra buttery flavour 🙂 Here is the finished meal! We will try this dish again soon,...
Our new DIY: Hoop House

Our new DIY: Hoop House

Well last year we didn’t have a big garden as we were new to the growing seasons here and didn’t expect to lose our hot peppers and tomato plants to a freak frost in June! Twice! Needless to say we were disheartened but so was everyone in this little town! This year we want to have a lot of tomatoes so Morgyn and I built a new hoop house here! It is bigger than our last one in Abbotsford, and we are excited for our tomato sprouts to get big so we can house them in our greenhouse! Here are the pictures of the building of our new Hoop House 2017.. First Morgyn had to set up the structure, we reused some of the same materials we had from our last Hoop House in Abbotsford.. It’s Me! Infront of where our Hoop House will be we made rows of well composted soil for whatever vegetable crops we want to have this year! Maybe squashes? We had a couple of big pumpkins a few years back, It will be nice to grow some more! Maybe strawberries too? Yum! Here is our first hoop erected! We are getting there! 🙂 My first cooking lesson started that day! Cheers! With Morgyn’s help I made some really great Quesadillas! Yay! Little Darwin, they are so happy that the snow is all gone! We had a bit of a scare last week though as Humble Dog came home with a few wood ticks on her! One had really effected her badly, she was a little weak for a few days, but all better now!...
