So, my friends and I headed to Vancouver, BC., Canada this last Sunday. While I had EVERY intention of posting everyday, I did not. The spotty network connection in the hotel is partly at fault. The rest is I have been having fun. So I have been working on my posts and I will post them when I can as we are still in Vancouver for a few more days. I have been taking photos, but have been having some difficulty getting them uploaded. I will as soon as I can.
Were staying on the 20th floor. The view is very unique for me as I have never really spent any time that high. We’re right in downtown and there are buildings that are even taller. I have been told there is a building here that is in the 60′s…. Wow.
I will try to post again tonight, but we are going to the Punjabi Market (aka Little India) today so…. I have been wanting a salwar kameez for ages. I just might get one today. Gonna have great food and a great time.

So when us kids were growing up mom used to make theses things called pigs in a blanket. They were a hot dog wrapped in a fridge biscuit and baked till plump.
EDIT: A friend of mine asked me what other dish I was referring to if not this one as ‘Pigs in a blanket’. I looked at my info again and discovered that I was indeed looking at a different page. Thank you for bringing this to my attention.
Now I know that pigs in a blanket is an entirely different dish, and these are probably closer to bagel dogs.
I had the necessary leftovers and decided I was gonna revisit this family treat and see if I could modernize and jazz it up a bit.
First off hot dog gets replaced with a Bratwurst. Yum! The fridge biscuit is now a fridge crescent roll. Next, we add cheese and season with apple smoked sea salt.
To this I added oven chips and for desert gluten free brownies (different post).
My goodness what a tasty Sunday lunch.

I made sweet corn muffins last week for my Sunday lunch group, but never got around to posting it, so this was and excellent challenge to show off the pictures I took. I usually take pics of Sunday lunch, but I have been very remiss about posting lately.
Left over sweet goodies…
become nummy corn muffins
The first one is of the left overs that I brought home from a salad I had the night before. It consisted of blue cheese, crasins and candies walnuts. The recipe only called for toasted walnuts, but I thought the candied walnuts would be nice. The cheese had gotten mixed up with it on the way home so I just tossed it all in. They were pretty good. None came home.
The second image is the cut away of the muffin. Most of the ad-ins settled a bit on the bottom, but it was ok. The last image was the presentation to my Sunday lunch group.
The last image (yea, I know it was supposed to be three, but it was there… I was there…) is lunch all pulled together. It seems very dis-jointed, but they liked it. They are a wonderful test group. Thanks guys.
Dinah & The Heater
As you can see the Editor just loves the heater. It was so funny this morning. I was just sitting there getting my shoes on and I turned on the heater for a few moments, suddenly she out of her spot on the bed and moving with purpose to the end table. I turned around to this. How cute, my little toasty muffin.
