Five Things

The boy came back last week after being away for 4 work weeks and it was nice to be able to get back to our routine. On Sunday, we picked out a few recipes then went grocery shopping. We were VERY happy with the recipes we chose and thought I’d share them with you.

Recipe (and image credit) – We made a couple of changes to this recipe – we omitted the Dijon mustard. We used a regular beer, but there are some gluten-free beers than can be used instead (image via)

Recipe (and image credit) – I mentioned this recipe on my post on Wednesday… so easy and delicious! It’s a great fall recipe

Recipe – I posted this recipe a couple of months ago and like I mentioned then, we absolutely love it. We only used 1 serrano pepper instead of the jalapeno and poblano. It could have used another half serrano.

Recipe (and image credit) – We were out of rice vinegar so I omitted it. We loved the recipe as it was, the sauce was nice and light, and didn’t overpower the flavour of the vegetables.

Recipe (image credit) – Even though I’m no longer having smoothies for breakfast, I still make them for the boy so he can enjoy them on his way to work. I used frozen pineapple chunks and he would have liked a little more pineapple flavour; perhaps next time we’ll add a little bit of pineapple juice. We’ll try to make this one again.

What are you doing this long holiday weekend?

We’re going to keep things a little low-key. I’m going to make some cake pops for a pool party we’re going to tomorrow, relaxing, and packing for a trip next week.

I hope you enjoy your weekend!


  1. Hola Cecy, Bueno, este fin de semana en Mexico será algo cansado pues tengo varias actividades para el sábado. Asistiré aun seminario “Rescatar pedacitos de tu alma” de 10 a.m. a 2 pm, después de 2:30 a 5:00 pm iré a la comida de la primera comunión de Romancín y de ahí me pasaré a casa de tía Sara a conocer a Carla Sofía, la bebecita de Abril. Creo que el domingo descansaré.
    A donde vas a viajar? Me gustaría ver tus fotos. Cuando me invitas a comer  a tu casa y saborear esas deliciosas recetas?
    Un beso,
    Tía Ofes

    • We’re just going to Mississippi for a wedding. It’s usually best to invite people when the boy is away for work.. but I don’t think he’ll be going on a long trip again this year.. so maybe next year :) In the meantime, you can make the recipes yourself.. they’re really easy and quick to make. You should give them a try!

  2. No one thinks of gluten being in beer! I’m not gluten-intolerant, but I am allergic to beer. My grandmother had lupus and I have a sister and cousin who both have celiac, so it is likely a genetic thing. I wonder if I could have the GF beers without getting sick?
