Saturday BBQ

Oh, I can’t even think of the last time I ate so much food.  To the point where I was nauseous. It was disgusting. BUT the food was so good it was too hard to pass up (I also have no control over my food consumption apparently)

We had this delicious cheese (for serious : check out La Sauvagine next time you’re in a cheese shop. YUM!) and thin thin prosciutto, all from the St. Lawrence Market.  Corn was picked up with our best substitute for Cotija cheese (turns out it’s a greek cheese called Marouni Manouri!) for Mexican Corn (think Grilled Mexican Corn like Cafe Habana‘s in NY… )  We followed this recipe and guys, it’s too easy.

I’d click on this link for the recipe if I were you, and make it ASAP. You will be hooked!!


I also had a craving to make something with fresh Ontario peaches and strawberries and thought of this recipe.  I had made last thanksgiving, but modified it a bit by removing the extra pie crust and changing up the fruit.  The link for the full directions, once again, is here.  I feel like it would be even better paired with vanilla bean ice cream while it’s still warm… yummmmm



Hope you all had a great weekend, full of food and sun and friends

    oh my goodness me! i cannot wait until my corn is ready to pick from the garden!!! this just made me really really really excited!!! i mean, i love corn on the cob already and its such a perfect summer food but now its at a whole other level! and thats based purely on photos and description!!! hahahaa, imagine what will happen when i actually consume it! *squeal!
    did the Greek cheese take away from the Mexican flavouring tho? and did you find the ancho chili powder hot?? I’ve never used it so I don’t know what to expect…

      Haha! It. was. delicious.

      The cheese was super similar to the mexican corn we had – I heard people change it up with Parmesan too which would be nice. I only lightly sprinkled it with Chile powder (I’m not too spicy friendly ya know) and it was great. try it!!!!!
