Yes that is snow on the ground in this picture, welcome to Canada and the Prairies in October, the land where children have to wear snow suits under their costumes on Halloween.
I was scrolling through Pinterest when I saw this craft and I thought what a perfect way to distract the kids for a bit, plus I just thought it was super cute! I painted the trees for the kids on thick scrap booking paper with some black acrylic paint, I let it dry before they went at it.
This sandwich is so simple yet so jam packed full of flavor. During the summer of 2008 I actually worked in the food court of Costco, I smelt like french fries and pizza for I swear a month after working there. Costco was actually a great place to work for and I can say without lying that I still eat in their food court even after working in it. They make great fast food there and this sandwich is a staple in the Canadian Costco's. Everything on this sandwich, minus the pickles because those are my Ryder families recipe, you can buy from Costco.
So if you are just stumped for ideas for a meal that you want minimal prep for here is a great one for you.
So it looks like I have been slacking this week again, actually not slacking just crazy busy and haven't had a lot of time to blog on here, but here I am and I apologize for the week of absence. Last weekend was Canadian Thanksgiving and my 31st birthday, so it was full of family and celebrating.
There was lot's of pie to be eaten and of course there had to be some form of cake for me to blow out candles. I got pretty spoiled and was super excited to get some fun plates and serving ware from the Pioneer Woman line from Walmart and some cute things from Anthropology. Honestly my greatest gift this weekend was a plaque made for me that celebrated my service as a missionary that was almost 10 years ago. A lot of Mormon congregations give them to returned missionaries after their time serving but for some reason I never got one and it always bugged me. Well my amazing in laws got one done for me and even found my favorite scripture for it, it made me cry I was so touched by the gift, they knew how much it meant to me.
Whenever I eat out at a restaurant I always see these pretty flatbreads, I have always wanted to attempt making one, but when we have pizza at home it usually doesn't have green stuff on it haha. My family is visiting from Kelowna for Thanksgiving this weekend, and my Birthday (it is Canadian Thanksgiving on Monday). Because my mom and one sister are over I decided that's enough females to eat this frilly looking "pizza".
A little about me
Just a BC girl living in a Alberta world on a cattle ranch nestled near Kananaskis country. I love all things food, my husband and my two beautiful children. I am always looking for inspiration through the world around me.
