I’m Mushy

It was a snowy snowy weekend in Toronto.  But it was the kind of snow that came down in big huge flakes and ended up looking like a winter wonderland.  How can you hate on that?

I spent the weekend at Toronto Podcamp.  There was over 1400 attendees and every social media and digital topic that you could imagine, it was great!  I keep telling Brad that we’re going to start our own podcast.

Podcamp was a short day yesterday so I was able to get home and get some of my chores done.  We needed our week’s afternoon snack baked up, and Brad has requested banana muffins.  It was the perfect afternoon.  I was cooking up a storm, Brad was working on a painting.  That’s the type of afternoon I used to dream about when I used to have to work weekends.  I was feeling a little mushy thinking about how lucky I am to share such a lovely afternoon with such a lovely man.  Mushy like these bananas.

My lovely man asked for chocolate fudge chips in his banana muffins.  I’m not sure if he was having a chocolate craving or if he was taking advantage of my mushy ways.

Last, but not least, we had Claire and Ronaldo over for Christmas dinner.  Yes I said Christmas.  Gosh we’re so busy I can’t believe it took us two months.  Brad and I shared cooking duties for dinner and made a traditional Sunday dinner:

  • beef chuck roast
  • lentil walnut loaf
  • potatoes
  • carrots

MMMMmmmmmm I love it!

How often do you make or sit down for a “traditional” Sunday dinner?

  1. We don’t do traditional dinners really but always have dinner at the table together. :)

  2. I love Sunday dinners and relaxing, wholesome afternoons! Makes me feel all warm and fuzzy, too. :)

    When I have a proper kitchen, we usually have a nice Sunday dinner. Still working in the laundry room, kitchen under construction. But I think I’m going to but a pot roast in an old pot and cook it on the woodstove this Sunday. I’ll be thinking of Little Grama when I’m doing it.

    P.S Grandpa Shuker would have been 95 years old today.

  5. Actually we rather have “special” dinners every other Saturday, when my boyfriend’s kids are staying over. But it’s not a pork roast or something like that, we usually have a Korean dish, that’s where the boyfriend is from.
    Having proper meals together is very important for us.

    Oh, I can hate on the snow at this point ha. Luckily it warmed up around here because we just got an overload of rain!

    We do Sunday dinner with my family every week, but sometimes we all just go out to eat together. But regardless, it’s a nice thing to have, as otherwise we can go weeks without seeing each other sometimes! (And we live in the same city!!)

  8. I LOVE lentil walnut loaf.
    We don’t do Sunday suppers often but Saturdays are usually our day to make a neat dinner…Not typically traditional though…Wow I’m not really answering your question very well ;)

  9. i don’t really eat any “traditional” meals since i live alone. but my family always had dinner together when i was growing up, and i am definitely planning to try to do that when i have my own family too! :)
