Badminton…Beer Can Chicken…Bubbly…Bonfire!

This past weekend we went to the Falls to see our dear friends, The Orsborns. You probably recognize them from our cooking competition events. We planned a weekend of “awesome,” which included a badminton tournament, BBQ and a bonfire. It was one of the best days we had all summer!


Congratulations to our winners!
GOLD: Adam
SILVER: Marc
BRONZE: Nic
COPPER: Carly
COAL: Nat (that’s right, I was winless, but loved it!)

A special thanks goes out to Nic for coordinating the tournament and keeping us all on our toes!

BBQ Feast

Last December Marc and I went to Prince Edward County on a weekend get-away. After a visit to Huff Estates we couldn’t pass up this Vidalescco Sparkling wine. It is delicious and went perfectly with the chicken.

This was our first time trying Beer Can Chicken. We kept it simple – salt, pepper, olive oil and beer! It is amazing what you can do with just a few simple ingredients because this chicken was delicious. It was moist and flavourful and we can’t wait to make this again.

We roasted a medley of potatoes, brussels sprouts, onions and garlic. This dish may have been a bit winter-inspired, but it sure was delicious.

Can’t go wrong with grilled tomatoes, mushrooms and blue cheese!

We also had an amazing Peach Pie courtesy of Carly’s mom. The crust was perfection and the peaches were very flavourful. Niagara has a Peach Festival every year and after eating this pie it reminds me why.

Can’t wait for our next Weekend of Awesome!
