Prime Rib Roast Dinner

Prime Rib Roast Dinner

We have been celebrating some special dates these last 2 months. In June we had our first wedding anniversary, my wife had her birthday, and then this month it was Canadas 150th birthday! We wanted to revisit our wedding dinner which was prime rib and lobster! Well we didn’t buy the lobster yet but enjoyed a big prime rib roast from our fav butcher #Rempelmeats on the Coast. Morgyn seared the roast on the BBQ just like her Dad did a long time ago at our last place in the Fraser Valley for her birthday. Prime rib always conjures up pleasant memories for us, so it was nice to have a continued celebration week along with my wife’s favorite red wine from Villa Theresa that I surprised her with. Cheers to health, happiness and many more great years ahead of us! Here is the rib roast! It was a pretty good size for the both of us and left overs for a few days!   In my opinion this was the best home made #potatosalad Morgyn has made yet! Darwin is never too far from the block of butter when we are using it! So cute, we always give him a taste of it and he loves sitting pretty for a bite! Here is our favorite store bought wine, Villa Teresa Merlot! So rich in flavour you gotta try it out!   We think the taste of the roast was amplified from the pre salting! Our first time in years using our BBQ! We usually use our DIY smoker, but we wanted that rustic BBQ flavour, and wow did...
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!

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!...
