creamy shrimp & pasta

I had a hankering for a creamy pasta dish.  Shrimp was a cherry on top.  I’m all about seafood when it’s available.  I found this recipe on Pinterest that fit the bill perfectly.  I love the intense flavour of sun-dried tomatoes and the sharpness of the “king of cheeses,” parmesan.  Garlic, in our house, is… Continue reading creamy shrimp & pasta

pesto & parmesan pinwheels

The other day I wanted to make something other than sandwiches for our fellowship meal which follows our communion service.  We have been having a cold potluck (our space does not have an oven) lunch as an extension of the Lord’s Supper. I was perusing Pinterest and was inspired by this recipe.  They had me at pesto and… Continue reading pesto & parmesan pinwheels

time with our girl and makin’ sushi

We enjoyed a wonderful week with our Alberta girl!  Not a lot is going on around here yet, so we mostly just chatted as we hung out, played games, watched movies and did a little sight-seeing.  We each had a ‘date’ with her.  We did have a few nice days to walk the beach, too.… Continue reading time with our girl and makin’ sushi

We were introduced to the donair pizza on our first… Continue reading donair…cheater-style

tastes like chicken ~ easy baked chicken parmesan

The leftovers from our giant Costco package of skinless, boneless chicken (see this post) went to the following night’s dinner–chicken parm.  This is one of my faves.  In the interest of trying to make it a little healthier, I bake it.  It still comes out crispy on the outside and juicy inside, without the added… Continue reading tastes like chicken ~ easy baked chicken parmesan

makin’ fatayer

What, you may ask, is a fatayer (or fatayir)??? We first had fatayers in a little restaurant run by a Syrian woman while traveling.  The place was rather obscure from the outside, but trip advisor gave it a good rating, so we were game to give it a go.  We would much rather try something… Continue reading makin’ fatayer
