So how was your February??
Does anyone else feel like February FLEW by and all of sudden we’re headed into March? March has me dreaming about Springtime, sunshine and fresh flowers and this set of party cups and party plates make me want to host a Spring party!
But, before we get there I have some favourites from February to share with you.
February turned out to be a very full month for me…I had a Super Bowl / birthday party and my team also WON which was exciting! We ate a ton of food including my Kettle Chip BBQ Chicken Nachos and these Coconut Chicken Fingers that I served with ranch and hot sauce for dipping.
I cooked a lot at home and have a couple of new favourite recipes in our dinner rotation including these Slow-Cooker Banh Mi Rice Bowls and these Spicy Chicken Sweet Potato Meal Prep Magic Bowls. Both recipes are so delicious and make perfect weekday lunches too!
We went to the cabin for the Family Day weekend and with all of the snow it was just magical.
I spent a lot of time reading and finished this book, The Best Kind of People. I was hooked on this book from the beginning; it was soooooo good. Then I started on another book that I’m loving called Fates and Furies; half of the book is told from the perspective of the husband and the other half is from the wife’s perspective which makes it so interesting. I would highly recommend both books.
I also cooked a classic recipe which is the first I ever posted on the blog! Named ‘Mike’s Mac & Cheese,’ it’s a dish I created with my brother and its perfect for those cozy winter days. Plus, the mac & cheese leftovers freeze really well.
And to top off the month I attended an event at one of our local restaurants called Modern Steak. If you are in Calgary, you must check it out! We sampled a few of their steak offerings paired with wines and I’m telling you it is a must! Perfect for a date night or night out with your friends.
Now I’m really excited for March because it’s my BLOGAVERSARY!
On March 15th, 2015 I posted my first blog post on Cooking in my Genes and it’s been quite the adventure ever since! I love this cooking community and so grateful to have you all following my recipes and stories. I’m going to be doing a giveaway of some of my favourite things to celebrate so stay tuned!
Until the next cooking adventure,
