What's Cooking Wednesday

Another week has come and gone, and it's Wednesday again.  The sun is shining and it is going to be another beautiful day in our neighbourhood.  I can't believe we're already in the middle of August!  In just three short weeks, the girls will be back in school and Autumn will be peeking around the corner!  I am going to enjoy these last few weeks of Summer.  I hope you do too! 
Today, I would like to share a few photos of  some of the things I've been cooking since my last blog post...

Pancakes are a special breakfast treat.  I usually make pancakes on weekends, on a day when we're all home to enjoy them.  There really is nothing like homemade pancakes with butter and fresh maple syrup! 

  I had some leftover dough and decided to make a quiche tart for lunch.  Some of the special ingredients I added were Portuguese chorico-diced very finely, parsley, and gruyere cheese.  I call it my Portuguese Quiche! 

I served it with assorted baby lettuce salad, tossed with a balsamic vinaigrette and garlic butter croutons.

This was last night's dinner - my Portuguese style chicken stew.  Here you can see it bubbling on the stove top with one of THE most important Portuguese seasonings - paprika!  I used a whole chicken and chopped in 8 pieces.

Here it is, served on a plate - chicken breast with sliced, boiled potatoes and plenty of sauce for dipping.  A nice, crusty bread is the perfect accompaniment !

Thanks for stopping by.  Make the most of today and fill it with sunshine and happiness.  See you next time!
