Puppy Bathtime...

Sometimes being a pet owner RULES..



Stir Fry

One of the things I love most about Stir-fry is how it can be made SO colourful.
Peppers (red, orange & yellow)

Throw everything in a pan with onions, garlic & oil

add my (not so secret) sauce... I swear everyone LOVES my stir fries.. but it is all about this stuff!!

Puppies in Perspective

"Leftover" Curry

I had one of those days- looked in the fridge and there was a TON of things... but nothing to eat... so I threw together a bunch of things and made an AWESOME curry.

Tomato Soup

Fried the onion and garlic in some oil
Added Paneer, tomato soup, curry spices
added some water, spinach and broccoli & cream

Covered and cooked until broth was thick and creamy...

SO yummy!!

An Afternoon at Buntzen Lake

J's Cheese Dish

We have been looking for over a year for a cheese bowl that is like the one J's Nonna used to have- with no luck.
My Mom, bought this dish for J. (not knowing we were looking for one!)

Betsy....sacked Pt. II

This CAN'T be comfortable...


I have (almost) mastered Butter Chicken!!!
Not that it matters to me... since I don't eat it.. lol
But this is a fav. of J's and it is great to be able to cook separate Indian dishes since he likes his mild and I overdo the spices :)
