This summer has come to an end and the kids are now back to school. We opted into distance learning, so they both are learning online daily. They seem to be liking it and I don't have to worry about them possibly getting sick and bringing it home. What an odd time we are living in. 

A few weekends ago, was our last official weekend at the cottage. We brought the dock and boat in, and prepped it for winter. We may still sneak up on weekends with nice weather, but the trips will be few and far between. We had the chance to take in the gorgeous fall colours before the close of the season. Some of the views during our drive and at the cottage were breath taking.

 Tomorrow is Thanksgiving in Canada, so we will be spending a quiet day with our social bubble. I am thankful that our family is making an effort to keep our bubble safe and that we can still enjoy special moments together. Although I miss my own family, we are blessed to live near my SO's family. It has helped bring a bit of normalcy to our lives during this interesting times.

Here is my meal plan for the week

  • Thanksgiving dinner- turkey, mashed potatoes, corn, stuffing, gravy, homemade rolls, turnip and carrots. Double layer Pecan Pie and Pumpkin Pie for dessert.
  • Chicken and Bacon Puff Pastry Pie

  • Leftover night- clean out the fridge
  • Chiard 

  • Perogies with sauteed onion, bacon and cheese. Tossed salad on the side
  • Turkey Fried Rice, using leftover Thanksgiving turkey

I originally saw this recipe on Pinterest (via Six Sister's Stuff) and it had my tummy rumbling so hard, that I knew I had to make it. I had chicken in the freezer, so decided to make this chicken on a day where I would be at school all day. Nothing like walking into the most amazing smell, when you get home from a busy day of work! 
I love that this recipe is so simple, yet it is out of this world delicious. Sweet and savory combine, to coat this tender chicken. It literally fell apart as I tried to remove it from the crock pot. Once tossed with the thickened glaze, I served it with cooked rice/fried rice and some fresh snap peas. It was an amazingly fantastic crock pot meal, that I will be making again and again.

Bacon-Mozzarella Accordion Garlic Bread

A fresh baguette is stuffed with bacon, cheese and garlic butter, for an addictive appetizer.

When we used to go out to eat, if it is on the menu, we would order a bruschetta type accordion bread. I thought I could make an awesome garlic bread, using the same concept, but adding ingredients that we totally love. We often like to top leftover garlic bread with mozzarella cheese, to make it seem new again, so I wanted to incorporate that between the garlicky slices or baguette. And we all know how AWESOME bacon is right??

This is a super simple, yet deliciously impressive appetizer. I'm sure your guests would all Oooh and Ahhh over the ooey gooey bread with bacon. They would be totally CRAZY if they didn't!! The kids really loved this too. The inside was soft and garlicky, full of cheese, bacon and nice fresh green onion. The outside was crispy and buttery.

8 Ways to Have a Fun and Delicious Halloween at Home

Wondering how to spend Halloween this year, due to the pandemic? Well I have 8 fun and delicious ways to make an at home Halloween, tons of fun!

2020 has been turned upside down. My kids have not seen friends, or the inside of a school since March. While we do have our social bubble, this bubble consists of family and a few select friends. Being someone who could be vulnerable during these crazy times, I have been trying to make every day life as normal as possible. With Halloween fast approaching, I have been thinking of how to make sure my children have a super fun day, but not put our bubble at risk. It would be much easier if my health was 100%, but we will make the best of our Halloween at home.
#1 Visit a local pumpkin patch

Even though my health isn't the greatest, we haven't been living like hermits. We don our masks, bring hand sanitizer and make sure to social distance. So a trip to our local pumpkin patch, to pick our pumpkins, is one way we will be bringing a bit of n…
