My big trip this year was to Moab, Utah. Sweet 10 day climbing trip with some buddies! Couldn’t have asked for a better time.

Taiwanese stewed pork belly. Not low fat by any means… but the definition of comfort food for a cold fall day! Great.

#20 Moroccan Preserved Lemons (& clementines)

So I’ve always had to wing it when making tajine as there are no preserved lemons to be found where I am. Hopefully, no more! I’m finally making use of those mason jars I keep saving. They’re sitting in a cupboard just waiting to get used in a month!
Also I had a big box of clementines on the counter so I decided to do a jar of those as well… can’t wait to see how they turn out. :)

work work work...

I went in a few months ago and consolidated the debt I had accumulated. Now it’s just a war of attrition!



Learn to fly fish
finally!

I’ve been looking to do this for some time now. After finding out a few of the people I know are fly fishermen (and grilling them for information!), I picked up some basic gear and am looking forward to trying this once the rivers start to run.

Can’t wait!

#19 Lemon Pound Cake

Since I’ve been experimenting so much lately I decided to phone up my mum for this recipe. It was always one of my favourites growing up and even though there was a little less love in this time, it still tasted great.

#18 Veg Lasagna

So after reading a few recipes online I decided to whip one up on my own with Zucchini, eggplant, mushrooms, tomatoes and roasted red peppers. Good enough I could eat it all week long… lucky me ;)

#16 Flamiche aux Poireaux

In english you say? Leek tart. I adjusted the recipe slightly, added some cremini mushrooms to the filling and used fontina cheese instead of gruyère. Yet again, Delicious!

#14 Lebanese Pickled Turnip

Been meaning to do this one for awhile, but never seemed to get around to it. Finally picked up some turnip and beet on my last grocery run, and got to it. 1 week and I’ll hopefully be eating some delicious treats!

#13 Fallafel Wraps

I made some falafel the other day along with tabbouleh and hummus. Wrapped in a Pita with some tiziki (was too lazy to make the garlic sauce) and it was pretty good.

#12 Meatloaf!

I had a hankering for something quick and easy. Mixed up some beef with carrot, onion, spinach and then topped it all off with some home tomato sauce. Quite nice, and the extra froze well to be cooked at a later date.

#11 White Bean Parmigiana Soup

Another great vegetarian soup. Also had Kale in it which made it extra healthy. Worth nothing that under cooking kale leaves it quite bitter… nothing a bit of extra time on the stove (and a pinch of salt) didn’t fix!
