  1. Breaded Veal with Mushroom Gravy

    May 28, 2008 by TheCanadianFoodie

    I forgot to take a picture! -ack- I must be out of practice…

    I took a few days off work to celebrate an extra long holiday weekend (and my birthday – yay me!-) and that generally means a little more time to plan a nice meal.

    And in typical fashion, I went with a few new dishes…

    Thursday night meant Breaded veal in a rich mushroom gravy (a hunters-style gravy) and lemon beans (with lemon zest and more mushrooms) .

  2. Wintered Vegetables

    May 5, 2008 by TheCanadianFoodie

    We spent a day in the fields today. For future refernce (because I know you MUST be visiting and reading my site fanatically!) Sunday is garden day.

    Unfortunately, and if you followed along last summer you probably know, we live in the city. Not that living in the city is unfortunate, there are plenty of good things about living in the city and at this point in our lives it just makes sense to be close to everything. But, I was raised in the country and would like to find my way back sometime before I retire :)

    The unfortunate thing, and likely my least favourite part of city living, is our postage-stamp sized back yard. It’s big enough for a shed, a small deck and a large childrens play center (slide and swings), with just enough grass left over for the dog to do her serious business.

    …definitely NOT large enough for a garden.

    Practice.

    But in the meantime, stop asking HOW LONG… because it’s not the right question.
