Well it’s an absolutely gloomy Monday. Chilly, rainy and dark… (very Halloween-y though so I’m OK with it)
Hopefully your weekends were all good? Everyone stayed out of trouble I hope??
JoseeM did you wind up getting those St.Louis style pork ribs? If so, how were they?
While I didn’t have ribs this weekend I did feel like doing my best impression of a classic Swiss Chalet quarter chicken dinner last night in my new Nordic Ware HUGE roasting pan I bought at Costco last week.
This thing is actually really big, perhaps a little overkill but still really nice! The rack sits up nice and high off the bottom so there plenty of air circulating underneath to keep things cooking evenly. (and lots of room to collect tasty drippings for gravy!)
I don’t know why I was craving Swiss Chalet, but I was… I think it has something to do with the weather changing and loving those warm comforting roasting pan meals with veggies and chicken, they make the whole house smell delicious as well.
Plus who doesn’t love that Swiss Chalet dipping sauce??? Its liquid gold, I swear! And the powdered mix you can get at the grocery store is just as good!
So roasting a couple of bone-in Chicken breasts roasted at 425, some french fires tossed in a secret spice rub, an Ace bakery hamburger bun (subbing in for a dinner roll) and the Swiss Chalet Dipping sauce… Mmmmm let me tell you folks it hit the mark! (you can see how massive that pan is in the first picture!)
All things considered It was pretty darned delicious! I’d do that meal again in a heartbeat!
I lined the pan with parchment paper so there was no clean-up really.
OK, I’m sure you’re hungry for some sales so let’s take a small peek shall we?
They all looked really nice and felt a little bit more “heavy duty” than other puzzle books as they had thick and sturdy fronts and backs to them. So if you have any puzzle fanatics on your Christmas lists these would be a great grab for them. And I don’t think it’s too early to think about Christmas… Now is a great time to get that shopping started and finished so you can avoid the Holiday rush, whatever that might look like this year. I’d say make sure you get your shopping done early, and if you’re shipping anything or buying online get your orders in early to avoid any delays… Better safe than sorry, right?
On that note Ewok is giving me “the look” again so I must obey the rules and head to bed.
Somebody please “caption” this picture. I can think of a few things he might be thinking, but I’d love to hear your quotes.

As we are headed in to the second wave of COVID-19 and kids are heading back to school I think it’s important to remember that we’re not out of the corona virus weeds yet, and each province has their own Health recommendations based on the provinces individual risk assessment and I would recommend that you follow the recommendations for your specific province. Information can be found at the following websites.
So there you go, a little reading material for you.
Be kind, be safe and stay healthy!
