Oatmeal Pancakes

  I asked Moe what he wanted for dinner and he jokingly said pancakes.    You really should be careful what you ask for…………… He not only had pancakes for dinner last night but he had them again for breakfast this morning.    Before leaving for work yesterday morning I mixed two cups of oatmeal with two…

Greek Lemon Chicken

  I shopped on the way to work yesterday for dinner ingredients.   Nothing really was appealing to me so I just picked up a package of chicken legs and would figure out later what I would do with them.  Decided to go with Greek Lemon Chicken with roasted potatoes.   Basically a one pot meal. …

Tourtiere – French Canadian Meat Pie

       Moe has Monique (La Table De Nana) to thank this week for one of his dinners.  Our tradition is to have Tourtiere Christmas Eve. I usually bake two or three pies, one for dinner and one or two for the freezer. But this year, I only baked one pie and I froze the…

Wings and Rings

I had a craving for chicken wings.    Normally we would have homemade fries or homemade potato chips with wings, but last night I decided to go  with onion rings.     I grated a couple of garlic cloves on a microplane and then rubbed the garlic paste over the wings.  The wings were placed…

Date and Macadamia Nut Slice

    Call it what you will – Date and Nut Loaf, Cake, slice – whatever you call it, it is a favourite here.  I love making it in the morning to have with coffee.  Moe loves it warm, almost right out of the oven.  But I prefer it after it has had a chance…

Shepherds Pie

  Moe and I are partial to what I call “diner food”.  Another name for comfort food.   I get a craving occasionally for  Hot Turkey/chicken sandwiches with homemade fries,  meatloaf, salisbury steak, chicken stew and dumplings, etc…..  Shepherds Pie also falls into the category of Diner Food.   And that is what we had for…

Pizza Night

  I planned a head this week, saving enough Italian Ciabatta dough from a batch of bread I baked on Wednesday to make a pizza.   Moe took the dough out of the fridge around 3:00 PM yesterday afternoon so that it would have time to come to room temperature.  I got home from work…

Simple Turkey Dinner

  Nothing fancy. Just roast turkey breast, mashed potatoes and gravy, rutabaga and green beans.  Not fancy but sure tasted good. I presalted the turkey the day before and uncovered it Thursday morning so that it could air dry, making for a more crispy skin. This was a boneless turkey breast so it didn’t take…

Chicken Saltimbocca

Chicken Saltimbocca was on the menu tonight.    The idea to make Saltimbocca came from a picture I saw on  the blog  – For the Love of Cooking.  It looked very appealing. I looked at a few recipes and then decided to make a version seasoned to suit our tastes.  The sauce is basically  the…
