Monday night dinner

This evening I made dinner for my favourite boy on the planet and my beautiful room mate. Red Snapper, bbq'd in foil with dill, garlic, lemon, and chopped kalamata olives. Grilled asparagus. Simple mixed greens salad.
I didn't really take any photos. I'm a bad food blogger. I always forget until I'm half way through my meal. I also realized while I was setting the table that I need to take a trip to VV Boutique (yeah, that's Value Village) and buy some new table wares. I love anything and everything clear glass - hence my plates and my cute little olive dish. Vince bought me a lovely bottle of champagne for my birthday, so we cracked that open as well. A lovely evening overall.

i heart steak

I think any meat cooked more than medium-rare is a crime against taste buds.
And rare, really, is the only way to go.

Dita Von Teese.


There are cherries in this picture, so that's my justification for posting it on my food blog. Because seriously, she is pretty much the hottest babe ever.

BBQ Heaven

My old BBQ died over the winter. The honest truth is, she was murdered. Murdered by the cruel winds of mother nature, who threw my baby off the deck in a winter rage. Now as much as I loved my first born, she needed an upgrade, as most first borns do. (As a first born, I feel I can say this)

Introducing my new and improved child...

She's everything a mother could dream of, and then some. 4 grills, 72,000 BTU, rotisserie, smoker, warming drawer, side burner... I love her.

To bring her into this world right, I had my dear friends Holly and Lisa over, with their significant others, to give her a proper Sunday christening.

Beer-can chicken, some grilled veg, maple carrots, honey-glazed potatoes, spinach salad with sugared almonds... the perfect inaugural dinner. I've got a great summer ahead of me. I can just taste it.
