Meal Plan for the Week of June 30, 2018

It’s a long weekend–Canada Day–and it’s crazy hot this weekend. I think we could actually cook outside without the grill.  It can reach a point sometimes when it’s actually too hot to eat, and I think we’re there this week.  This week we are sticking to fresh, light flavours, nothing too heavy.  We are spending Canada Day with friends, so I have no idea what we’re having, but I would like to take the opportunity the wish you  a Happy Canada Day!  Every day I am thankful for living in the best country in the world, a truly welcoming melting pot of cultures that has allowed me to explore a world of food without having to leave.  Although we do leave sometimes because travel is good for the soul.


Korean Beef Short Ribs  (Kalbi) with rice and Spicy Green Beans and Carrots–beef short ribs, mirin, dried chillies, green beans, carrots


Happy Canada Day–Eat what brings you joy today. Seriously, whatever you want.  I’m giving you permission.
