Rhubarb Pie – A Taste of Spring

Until yesterday I would have said that winter was just a memory.   Spring was definitely here.   Cherry Blossoms  were out in Victoria, and,  around here,  gardens were starting to bloom with some of the earlier flowers, like crocus and snow drops have been out for weeks. Winter was definitely back yesterday.  Victoria had its first…

Greek Night

We had “Greek” again this week.  This made Moe really happy because I actually made him a  salad.   If you have been reading my blog for a while you have probably noticed the absence of salads.   I can make them, I just don’t care for them.  Food should be satisfying and I  get no satisfaction…

Italian Style Baked Halibut

Grilled Prime Rib

Grilled Prime Rib.   Just big enough for two.   Served with   Parisienne Potatoes, green beans  and roasted butternut squash. The roast was presalted on Monday and covered in plastic wrap.   The wrap came off on Tuesday and the meat was left to air dry in the fridge.   Brought to room temperature. Rubbed with fresh garlic…

Pork Sirloin Roast

Because I was having a root canal done yesterday morning I hadn’t made any special plans for our Valentine’s Day dinner.  I had presalted a pork sirloin roast on Sunday so I went ahead and slow roasted it for dinner. The roast was rubbed with a mixture of garlic, sage and lots of black pepper….
