A Visit From Family Back East

A Visit From Family Back East

My Aunt and Uncle came down for our wedding last month and they stayed with us for a few days! In those few days we ate great and Uncle Steven helped Morgyn dig up our septic field a bit. We went out for breakfast at a local restaurant and I ordered hot cakes that were the size of the plate! Morgyn made us the most awesome fried chicken we have ate yet and even my Uncle who has been to culinary arts learned a cool tip on how to make her fried chicken! Sorry all it’s top secret! It was sure nice to have my family included on our special weekend 🙂 We are looking forward to our next get together with them! Morgyn’s Rye and Walnut Bread! What a hit!   Uncle Steven and Morgyn digging up the septic field! Me, my Auntie Nicole and Uncle Steven Morgyn’s Fried Chicken, Fries and home made Coleslaw! Everyone about to enjoy our first dinner in our living...
We Got Married!

We Got Married!

It was a surreal June 25th weekend. Morgyn and I finally tied the knot! We had a small close knit family wedding at Morgyn’s Moms place. My Auntie and Uncle came down from the East Coast and Morgyn’s daughter and friend were there as well. We had a really nice ceremony followed by a delicious dinner! My Aunt and Uncle brought down a bunch of whole lobsters with them and cooked them to tenderness. We enjoyed the seafood with garlic butter and Morgyn’s Mom made a really tasty red seafood sauce to go with it as well! We had a super good prime rib later that night, that my Uncle seared and prepared before the wedding as Morgyn and I were getting ready. Earlier that day we had a great lunch with Morgyn’s sisters family along with my Aunt and Uncle in Vancouver at a restaurant named Kirin. We enjoyed Dim Sum and wow was it ever good! We especially enjoyed the shrimp dumplings and the Peking Duck. It is so nice to be officially married to Morgyn now as she is my soul mate and best friend and I look forward to every day ahead of us! Thanks to all who made our day as special as it was!

Easter Dinner with Family

Easter Dinner with Family

We had a very different Easter weekend this year. Our small Eddie kitten got hit by a car and it was the hardest day for Morgyn and I and our animals. We took a few days to mourn him before going to have dinner at Morgyn’s Moms for Easter. He was a kind, sweet, caring kitty who will be greatly missed. In the same weekend we discovered some wild mushrooms in our yard! We ate them as they were Morel mushrooms and wow were they ever tasty! We fried them up and used the left over juices in the pan for some amazing pasta! One of my Passion flower vine seedlings also came up that same weekend and it made us realize that nature was showing us these beautiful things to remind us that there can still be good in the Universe even though sometimes things are unfair like losing our little Eddie. Our Easter dinner was a delicious roast that Morgyn’s Mom made! Morgyn made the Yorkshires and a side of Asparagus that she grilled and wow was it a terrific...
