It's the weekend! Time to enjoy FAMILY, FRIENDS and FOOD! There's a chill in the air, so let's put the oven on for a bit!
But where to begin!? There are so many choices. Here are Barrow Bay Living's weekend choices.
Friday night! YES! This brie appie is just 4 ingredients! Serve with your favourite rice crackers, and a platter of fresh vegetables and Easy Leek Dip (just 2 ingredients). More you say? Add Parmesan-stuffed Mushrooms, and our most recent appetizer addition, Asparagus Roll-ups. If you don't have aspargus, use large quartered dill pickles!
On Saturday morning, there's nothing better than the rich flavour of homemade pancakes! Tip - take your egg and milk out of the refrigerator at least a half hour before making this delight. Maple Syrup is a must! Need an option for the grab and run eaters? Try our Pineapple Carrot Muffins.
Cool Saturday comfort food, this recipe takes a bit of work. If you are short on time,choose Creamy Cauliflower Soup which is ready in 40 minutes. Top it with grated cheddar.
This tasty pasta dish is just 4 ingredients, including the pasta! Pick up a loaf of artisan bread from the grocery, or even better, put a loaf on to bake in your breadmaker. I often make the French Bread breadmaker version, because prep is fast - only 4 indredients. And the taste - WOW! Serve your dinner with a tossed green salad.
It's apple season! Treat the whole family to this delight. My go-to apple is MacIntosh, but if you prefer a more tart dessert, use Granny Smith apples. And don't forget vanilla ice cream! Don't feel like baking? Another family favourite worth consideration this weekend is No-Bake Cherry Cheese Cake!
Pork loin, if cooked properly, is a tender meat choice. It's also budget-friendly. Serve it with potatoes or rice, and a selection of vegetables. For a surge of flavour, add a Greek Salad! Your leftover pork will be great for Monday lunch sandwiches!
Happy weekend from Barrow Bay Living!
