How our kitchen is making us better cooks...

Ok, well maybe that's a stretch (I like to think we're pretty good cooks already!) but the Mr. made full use of our fancy kitchen last weekend and treated me to a delicious dinner last Friday night! (Due to my back injury he's actually been cooking far more than his fair share, but he's doing a good job taking care of me!)

Food and Drink magazine from the LCBO (Ontario) is a huge standby for us - there has never been a recipe that we've tried that is just "so so" or that let us down...this one was no exception.

He made braised lamb shanks (with a cinnamon honey sauce) with brussels sprouts and potatoes (white + sweet)...it was heaven:
We also happened to have the suggested wine pairing for this dinner - I looked at the suggested pairing, thought it looked familiar and it was one that was in our wine rack that the Mr. had picked up while in Germany for work - random, but it was meant to be! This recipe is definitely going in the "make again" pile. You can find the braised lamb shank recipe here.

As I posted about last Friday, we were planning to have friends over for brunch on Saturday but unfortuantely they had to cancel due to being sick. Never the less, the Mr. and I enjoyed our fresh organic farm eggs:



Yummm...now the only question is, what to make this weekend? Happy Friday everyone - hope you have a delicious weekend!

Soft boiled eggs = amazing ovals of gooey yellow deliciousness.

Yay for loving your kitchen! Boo for Food and Drink magazine only because it's ridiculously amazing and free but I ALWAYS miss it in stores.
