Daily: Picnic in the Park...

Monday, June 30, 2014

 ...This weekend was an extra long weekend for me as I get Monday and Tuesday off for the Canada Day Holiday... this means a little extra time to do some blogging while Jet naps! Last week we finished work and packed up a few things for a picnic at Government House Park; summertime picnics are a must in this city, we only have good weather for a short period of time, so taking advantage of it is key! I am sure there will be many more evenings just like this in the not too distant future!

I hope this weekend finds you doing something fun to celebrate this beautiful country that we live in! Happy Canada Day to you all!


Photo Journey: Our first visit to the zoo...

Sunday, June 29, 2014

Ice cream, animals and a couple happy little boys made for a great afternoon at the zoo! To be honest, I don't think the little guys were all to excited about the animals, and were much more interested in the ice cream treats at the end... and who can blame them, that was my favourite part too!!


Happy Friday...

I haven't done a Friday post in a few weeks, so here is a bright sunny one! 
Happy Friday people! 
Here are a couple snaps from last weekend at the cabin; mom has pulled out all the stops for her new grandbabes,(toys, sand, treats!) and Jet is very appreciative of it all! We can't wait to spend lots of time out here in the weeks ahead!

photo journey: Sunny Saturdays playing at the park...

Sunday, June 22, 2014

...playing at the park is a new regular activity for us! Jet can't get enough of the swing set, and although he is a little unsure about the splash park, he liked watching the other kids spray each other and cool off in the warm summer sun!

Jet is quite the independent little man these days, and explores his surroundings with the sweetest curiousity! I often try to hold his hand, but he likes to do things on his own; its when he falls and scrapes his knee or bonks his head that he needs his mummy, and I am always there with arms wide open for the cuddles that ensue!

In the Kitchen: Ginger Basil Stirfry

Wednesday, June 11, 2014

Cooking dinner is literally the LAST thing I feel like doing when I get home from work... finding time to buy groceries is difficult enough, and meal planning has been out the question these last few weeks. When I realized I got bok choy in my Organic Box this week I knew if I didn't make something with it tonight it would probably end up being a good candidate for the garbage a week from now when I find it wilted in the veggie drawer.
This recipe was really easy, I used tofu, but you could absolutely substitute with chicken, beef or prawns....  and here it goes...

Grocery List:
-1 tbsp coconut oil
-1 block extra firm tofu chopped into bite size pieces
-1/2 red onion chopped
-5 green onions chopped
-2 garlic gloves chopped
-1 tbsp ginger
-3 cups bokchoy chopped
-1/4 cup basil leaves chopped

-1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
-1tbsp hoisin sauce
-1/4 cup rice vinegar
-1 tbsp sriracha or hot sauce (optional)
-1/2 cup water

 -1/4 cup water
-1 tsp cornstarch 
Get Cookin...
1)On a medium heat saute tofu in the coconut oil until lightly browned on all sides
2) Add vegetables and saute until softened
3) Combine first 5 sauce ingredients and mix together; add to vegetable mixture and toss to coat
4)Mix together last two ingredients and add to stir fry to thicken
5) Serve over quinoa (or rice) and garnish with salad shoots (optional)
6) Enjoy


Happy Friday...

Friday, June 6, 2014

Summer temperatures have finally arrived over these last couple weeks and you won't find me complaining about the warmer days or evenings! Summer weekend madness is also ramping up... it seems like my weekends are scheduling right up with fun activities and hopefully I will get to share some of it with you over the next couple months!

I hope you are doing something exciting this weekend.... 
Happy Friday!!!


Photo Journey: Jet Set to Oahu....

Thursday, June 5, 2014

I meant to post this a while back, somehow it got lost in the shuffle, (there might be a couple more posts like that coming up)...

To say Hawaii was an amazing holiday would be an understatement... it was perfect in every sense of the word...here is our vacation album.... I think the pictures speak for themselves....

What a great holiday! So many great memories with a group of great people... I can't wait to go back!

I hope you are having a terrific week people!


Dinner Club: Breakfast at The Glass House...

Wednesday, June 4, 2014

 This is just a short little post to say Hi there!!! Being back at work has put me behind on keeping this blog updated.... I am sure you were all just waiting for that to happen! So for the meantime the posts might be short, I hope you like pictures because I haven't stopped taking those!

I had breakfast with these fab ladies a couple weeks back..... dinner club turned into breakfast at the Glass House in the Enjoy Centre. The breakfast was delicious and I highly recommend stopping in to browse the entire centre and grab a bite to eat!

Wishing you all a fabulous week!
