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

No Yeast Old Fashion Cinnamon Rolls

 These delicious cinnamon sticky rolls have been in my family for over 40 yrs. No yeast is required, so you can whip up a batch of these in no time. Still tender, sticky sweet and delicious! Ever since I can remember Mom would make these as a special treat. It wasn't too often, but every once in a while, we'd come home to these no yeast cinnamon rolls, as an after school snack. Growing up, this is what I thought cinnamon rolls were. I wasn't aware that there was a yeast version of cinnamon rolls. As much as I LOVE the yeast version, this no yeast version seems to make an appearance more frequently here at home.  Since there is no yeast in the dough, it does not need to rise for 30 minutes before being rolled out and baked. When I worked in the retirement home the residents were always excited when I made these cinnamon rolls. They said it reminded them of their childhood. It was amazing seeing how happy a simple recipe could make them. I don't make these very often and

Black Forest Roll Cake

Light and fluffy cherry and whipped cream filling is rolled in an airy sponge cake. 13 years ago, I made a dinner that I was totally proud of. Not only did it taste wonderful, it looks fantastic too. I was so proud of myself that I took a photo, which I wanted to share with my friends and family. Only I didn't know how I could share it with everyone, at the same time. Then a thought came to me- a blog!!!  I've always been a foodie. While growing up, I'd often watch talk shows, just to see the cooking segments. I'd sit with a pen and paper, quickly jotting down ingredients and directions, to hopefully recreate recipes at home. I still remember a beet salad I begged my mom to let me make, asking her to buy raspberry wine vinegar for the dressing. It turned out to be something neither of us enjoyed, and up until a few years ago, Mom still had the vinegar in her cupboard.  I first started my first blog, Hun... What's  for Dinner?, as a way to share recipes with my famil

AMAZING Crockpot Brown Sugar Garlic Chicken #Blogtober

 In this AMAZING crockpot recipe, t ender chicken is bursting with flavour and cooked a garlic and brown sugar glaze. Disclaimer: This post may contain affiliate links.

I originally saw versions of this recipe on Pinterest 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.  Crockpot Brown
