Last weekend was Thanksgiving weekend here in Canada. My SO's sister, and her partner, hosted a lovely intimate dinner for us, and SO's mom. I fell in love with the tablescape, that they created for our meal. It was great to get a bit of normalcy in, even if our dinner was not as big as years past. I wasn't able to visit my family for the holiday, but we decided it would be more prudent to stick to our social bubble. 

Dinner was delicious! We started with a Curried Butternut Squash Soup, followed by turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes, gravy, rutabaga, green beans, fresh cranberry sauce and homemade rolls (which I brought). Dinner was followed by a fire in the back yard and a video call from family, to wish each other a Happy Thanksgiving. We ended the night with a pumpkin pie, I had made, and coffee/tea. The day blessed us with lovely weather, so we took the opportunity to take family photos. 

This past Wednesday was my SO's birthday. I spent the day pampering him and making him an amazing birthday cake. He LOVES peanut butter and had requested a chocolate cake, so I decided to make him a chocolate cake, with peanut butter frosting and chocolate frosting. It was so rich and decadent and our little family has been enjoying for the last few days, LOL.

Things are cooling down here in Ontario, so comfort food is making an appearance several times a week. We did do a BIG grocery shop, and bought a lot of meat, many of it will be used for several meals after cooking. Here is my plan for this week:

  • Peameal Bacon Sandwiches, with Broccoli Slaw
  • Baked Ham, with mashed potatoes, corn and homemade bread
  • Fried ham (using leftovers), potato pancakes and a salad
  • pancakes with fresh fruit
  • sweet potato hash, with eggs and toast
  • Perogies with onions and bacon
  • Leftovers (clean out the fridege

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…
