This sounds delish! When I get a new crockpot I will try this!

Yeah, I know, I know. We have A/C. DH had bought some fresh moz, and we needed to use it up. The tomatoes here are not yet tasty enough for caprese.

Happy Canada Day to all who care.

I'm experimenting on marinating some shrimp with Asian stuff and stir-frying it. Jasmine rice will accompany.

I take it you and the wife are visiting outside of Toronto--or else you must share the name of the place in the Cities that offers this delicacy. When you retire, you can open a chip stand in MN and offer poutine!

Change of plans: Potatoes were not good anymore, and I forgot I had some cooked Italian sausage in the freezer, and had fresh veggies to use up before we leave on vacation, so we're having a pasta/sausage/veggie stir-fry sort of thing with Italian seasoning and lots of garlic, to be served with garlic bread.

We had Glenn's birthday meal today. Yesterday was cards, presents, guests and cake.

Since he likes beast (beef) we bought a gorgeous sirloin steak at the butcher's on Monday. Had them cut it 1 1/2-inch thick. It weighed in at an ounce over 3 pounds and was the epitome of beefy loveliness.

With the perfectly-grilled steak, we had sauteed onions and mushrooms, baked potatoes and some tasty Cabernet to wash it down. We finished with very thin slices of birthday cake. We didn't even have any room for ice cream on the cake.
