Week in Suppers: Week 9*

Menu::Chilli and bread
Details::Tonnes of beans and veggies with the freezer ground beef. Was really satisfying. 

Baked chicken in a grapefruit/mustard sauce (sounds gross, tastes great), roasted beets and potatoes. Steamed broccoli with cheese sauce. Everyone ate it and complaints were minimal.

Details::You saw this one coming? Chilli one night means burritos later in the week. They were great. It was my running clinic night, so I don't know how they were eaten, but if history tells me anything, A1 had seconds and A2 complained. I was thankful Kevin saved some guac for me for when I returned home.

Menu::Turkey sausages, yam, carrot and potato fries. Garden salad made with spinach.
Details::We used to eat sausages a lot in Edmonton because we discovered Irvings sausages at our Farmers' Market. Hands-down the best sausages out there. Can't get them in Vancouver, so I was complaining on FB about this and a friend of mine goes to the Island every so often and brought back what she considers the best sausages and gave me some. Now, she has turned into my dealer. They are the best sausages I've had here and definitely the best turkey sausages I've ever had. I can't remember the brand, but they are local on the Island. SO GOOD. Anyway, that was the last of them in our freezer. The boys love sausages and the medley of fries went over well, too. 

Menu:: homemade pizza
Details:: Best crust yet. I think I finally have the multigrain crust down. Boys dressed the pizza with honey garlic pepperoni, tomatoes, kalamata olives, mozzarella and yellow peppers (A2 omitted these as he doesn't like peppers). No greens, but it was tasty and everyone ate it. 

Menu:: homemade burgers
Details::By the end of the week, I'm done with cooking, so I was sneaky and took out some hamburger from the freezer and suggested Kevin make his fantastic burgers. And he did! We didn't do any side dishes, which would have been a good idea, but ah, it's the weekend and they were devoured. 

Menu::dinner with friends
Details::A dinner party at the home of friends. Doesn't get better that this. 

(You may be asking yourself where did weeks 5-8 go? Good question. I'd like to know, too. February was a busy month, with family visiting, a birthday, a trip out of town. Lots of good food, junk food, and cake was consumed during those weeks. It was too hectic to take notes, and too much of blur to remember. You'll just have to take my word that we ate many suppers.)
