Some yummy eats

It seems like the month of May is just flying by.  And just under 6 weeks to go before the 2010-2011 school year comes to an end.  I’m looking forward to the summer…spending my days at the beach, biking, hiking, sleeping in, camping and of course lots of walks with the dog.  Until then though, it’s crunch time… track and field, field trips, report cards…ahh..it never ends. 

And what about those Canucks?  I can’t believe we are still in it.  If you haven’t been following the hockey playoffs, our team has made it to the Western Conference Finals.  It’s Canucks vs. San Jose Sharks… and we won game #1.  Only 3 more to go… Smile  I predict Canucks to win this series in 6 games.  One can only hope, right?

On to food.  Not too much description, so I will just show the pictures.  I have been so so busy these days that sadly I did not have the time to be taking pictures during the cooking process.  Plus the camera is out of batteries, so I’ve been pulling out the blackberry to do the job. 

Hope everyone is having a great start to their spring.  Enjoy Smile

I have made this one before…my Cream of Parsnip Soup with a drizzle of White Truffle oil.  Not on picture is a couple of slices of Toasted Rosemary Baguette and some Earth Balance Butter.

Moose Burgers with brie cheese, truffle drizzled grilled asparagus and fire-roasted bell pepper.

Bison burgers

Yummy Turkey Burgers with melted Brie Cheese, spinach, sautéed onions and mushrooms and apple…and of course tender grilled asparagus.

Made on the BBQ…. spinach, a couple slices of Hornby Island Red Pepper Vegetarian Paté, an egg and some brie cheese.  This paté stuff is awesome…it’s vegan, soy-free and dairy-free.

My power went out the other night, so I made this meal entirely on my BBQ.  In the veggie mix are onions, garlic, orange pepper, red baby potatoes and brussel sprouts.  The salmon fillet was marinated with the West Coast Salmon Rub from the lady behind the Metropolitan Chef.  I highly recommend you pick up some of their rubs.. I've tried most and they are all amazing.

I BBQ some Pork Tenderloin and served it with leftover veggies from the Salmon meal.
