Well Costco certainly kept me on my toes today, 175 Sales & clearance items… Yikes! My camera clicking finger certainly had a workout this afternoon, so lets take a quick look at whats on sale this week.
So there you go, just a little taste! Speaking of taste I though this was a pretty cool item (not on sale though)
The cheese flight! If you like cheese or you are looking for a no fuss cheese board for a gathering this is the way to go. What I really like though is the addition or the Beer/wine pairings, that takes alot of the guesswork out for you! I was pretty tempted to grab one of these, and maybe I will and save it for Thanksgiving evening? That’ll be a simple appetizer to have out while we’re cookin’ up a storm! Grab some cured meat and some delicious olives??? We might not even need dinner!
Well the week has been pretty good, though it definitely feels like full on fall now. The leaves are starting to change, it’s chilly and gloomy, Halloween decorations are popping up everywhere… Hockey season has begun too so I’m pleased about that. The cats aren’t pleased with the weather, as you can see Ewok is all puffed up sitting out back.
Perhaps he needs a little winter jacket???
Fall also makes me feel like cooking alot more, making lots of roasted meats & veggies like Squash. Mmmm I love roasted squash! While we didn’t do squash last night we did made some rich and delicious Scalloped potatoes with roasted chicken.
Obviously I always prep and get my ingredients set up for assembly.
Usually I would just add cream to each layer as I’m building it, but this time I made a gluten free roux (butter and gluten free flour then add cream) and added salt, pepper, italian seasoning and chili flakes (and more cheese) So it turned into a deliciously thick and rich sauce.
Roasted in the oven at 400 degrees for about 30 minutes covered, then uncover and cook another 30 minutes. (should have done maybe 40 minutes covered though, the potatoes could have been done a touch more)
Mmmmmm gets all crispy and delicious!
The chicken was marinated in a Presidents Choice garlic and herb sauce which was pretty tasty too, but the potatoes stole the show I think.
I also (before work on Friday) made up another huge batch of pickled jalapenos, and made a new hot sauce with some Super hot Ghost peppers a co-worker gifted me (though I still have a ton of peppers to work through!)
Holy moly that sauce was super hot initially, though it has mellowed out a bit now. I tried to keep the recipe pretty simple to not overpower the delicious fruity flavor of the Ghost peppers, but I did add a dried Ancho and Aji pepper to add some rich smokey flavor to the sauce (next time I’ll be adding more of those) I’ve got it all written down though and when I make it again I’ll do a little step by step so we can all enjoy! (though it needs a name… Any suggestions???)
So we’ve been in the new house for a few months now, and are still kinda putting things together. I know there isn’t really a rush and we want to make sure we feel the space out properly, but it would be nice for us to start putting those personal touches on the place.
We did decide on some new light fixtures for the upstairs though. And seeing as I finally had a day or two off I was able to actually get them installed. We wanted to keep it pretty simple, and the globes were what we both seemed to agree on. It’s a classic look, very simple but as my partner says they’re “kinda funky” and will match with our style pretty seamlessly.
We’ll have to change a few more lights out downstairs still, but we’re gonna do something a little different. A little more earthy and warm perhaps? We’re liking the concrete look or maybe something wicker or rattan? I don’t know….
I also still haven’t finished painting for cryin’ out loud! Or put the T.V. on the wall mount that I got a month and a bit ago… (been sitting in the open box still, making me feel lazy) So… I feel like at least by getting those lights up I got something accomplished, so now I just need to keep that train-a-rollin’. (Hopefully next week I’ll have a few more items checked off the list, and I’ll update you!)
And on that note, I’m going to go and help get dinner together; which will be easy cause we’re just doing leftovers. Yumm!
Have a great week folks, enjoy all the wonderful Fall weather and beautiful fall colors and I’ll be seeing you soon!
