I do not serve a lot of pasta, but this Summer Corn Fettuccine caught my eye as something a bit different to try. Everyone enjoyed it, even though I picked up a package of linguini! From Brenda's Canadian Kitchen.
Brown food is not pretty, not much can be done to change that, but this was tender and garlicy good.
Simple Slow Braised Pot Roast, for those that prefer the tried and true on their plate! Simple seasoning are best here, garlic, salt and pepper. When cooked this way you can also serve "french dip" style. The natural pan gravy is beyond delicious!
I set all the components out, and let each person construct their own sandwich, delicious!
These sandwiches must be made and shared! I commute right through Portland Oregon and along the way there are food carts and specialty outlets. For Banh Mi sandwiches, there is always long lines waiting. Pork Meatball Banh Mi from Brenda's Canadian Kitchen.
This fish, while not the prettiest dish, was tender and delicious!
We were given a full side fillet of Steel-head. I plan on a simple poaching liquid of onions, celery and sliced lemons in white wine. Once poached it will be served with Creamy Dill Sauce (Magic Sauce) from Recipes by Haggis and the Herring. I am not the biggest fan of fish, but with the Magic Sauce, it went beyond my expectations!
Crisp vegetable tray.
This was served with vanilla ice cream.
When transferring the contents of the chest freezer to the upright, I "found" 2 bags of rhubarb from my sister's yard. That made it real easy to make Rhubarb Crisp, from Tasting Spoons.
This caught my eye some time back, it has all the delicious flavors that everyone loves. I did leave out the crushed walnuts, as we have some non-nut eaters in the family. Peanut Butter Banana Rum Raisin Bread from 3 sides of crazy!
Sparkling Strawberry Lemonade, inspired by Brenda's Canadian Kitchen.
As always, thanks for taking a moment to stop by.
