Last week, we enjoyed some lovely meals. I tried a few new recipes including Yogurt and Dill bread, Pastitsio with homemade tomato sauce, Turkey and Wild Rice Casserole, Skillet Breakfast and Bannoffee Pie, which I didn't post the recipe for because I wasn't overly impressed with the results. It tasted good but it wasn't the same as the Bannoffee pie from the UK. But rest assured, I WILL try again.
The yogurt and dill bread is a new favorite. I actually made another batch of it this weekend to use up the rest of the yogurt and fresh dill. I shaped this batch into breadsticks and popped them in the freezer for an easy go to when we're jonesin' for some breadstuffs.
At our BBQ, we enjoyed Sausages (Thanks, Logi) and homemade burgers on homemade hamburger/sausage buns, potato salad, rice pasta salad, spinach and strawberry salad (Thanks C-Biscuit), corn on the cob, doritos (Thanks, Logi) along with Bannoffee Pie and a delicious Trifle (Thanks, B)!
It was a week filled with a lot of good food and good friends! And, now, the next week begins. This week is pantry week in our household. I have lots of food in the cupboards and freezers that needs to be used up. Also, June is always a tough month for us $$ wise because my teaching assistantship contract finishes in May and so, although I don't bring a lot of dough, June means re-adjusting to one income after 8 months with a little bit of cushion.
