In The Kitchen

It is a stormy Sunday night here on the east coast
and I have already lost power once
so I thought I would dash off a quick post in case it goes again....

yes ~ this was this afternoon
and they said that it is going to get worse

Trev is doing a little happy dance as it more than likely means
no school tomorrow
gotta love a good snow day

me on the other hand have to go in regardless
I don't get snow days
I know ~ boohoo ~ woe is me

so what does one do when the snow is blowing
well beside stay in my pj's all day long
I knock a few more recipes off my
28 recipes in 28 days list

I started off with miniature pineapple upside down cakes

I love the look of them and they are perfect
with a cuppa tea

then I made some cookies for my boy
he loves anything chocolate
so these Rolo cookies fit the bill

they were easy peasy and really rich

next up was a traditional Acadian meat pie
called a Tourtiere

this can be frozen and popped into the oven the night 
we want it for supper

last thing off the list this weekend 
was mini Italian meatballs
I made for another planned recipe

they are teeny tiny and I just mixed up some ground beef
with an egg, some Italian seasoning, parmesan cheese
and breadcrumbs
then boiled them in beef broth to cook

I can't wait to throw them into this soup,

So after all the cooking and baking was done
I put supper in the oven
and settled into the tub with a book

it was the perfect way to finish off the afternoon.

I wanted to share with you a couple of things I ordered
after Christmas that came in last week

I ordered this from The Rusted Chain
love her stuff and wanted to get a necklace with my word on it

I also came across this one which I fell in love with
as soon as I saw it

found on Etsy at Branded Heart Jewely
I would order from her again

on my last trip to Costco I picked up a couple of books
from two of my favourite authors

can't wait to read these ones.

Hope you all had a good weekend!

What a fruitful day. You accomplished a lot - the tourtiere looks looks delicious

Cathi said...

Wow you were quite productive this weekend but ending it with a good book and a nice soak in the tub was perfect! P.S. pass some of those Rolo cookies my way, please! :) Xxoo

Everything that you cook always gets my tastbuds going Lori !!!! I usually read your blog at about 8.00 am when I am feeling really hungry !! ..... and, like Cathi, those Rolo cookies look wonderful.
..... and, more snow for you ...... ours has just melted and, as much as I LOVE it, I am now in Spring mode and could do with some warmer weather.
Looking forward to more of your delicious recipes. XXXX

Lori I've been sick and I'm just now catching up on your blog. I absolutely love your miniature pineapple cakes, how precious. And yummy looking too. I will definitely do this. I'm still a bit in awe of all of your cooking.
