In My Kitchen February 2017

Ok, totally failed on my New Years resolution to get back to blogging regularly. It is just so busy with work and other commitments that I just have nothing left.  I am determine to get the IMK post up this month!

Here are a few things that have been in my kitchen this month.

Salmon in white wine and dill sauce, delicious 

My favourite cheese, soft creamy and so good. Wonderful served with dried figs. It is a Quebec cheese and I like supporting Canadian and local producers.

It was my Mom’s birthday and we had this chocolate raspberry cake.

Evie made a lego hotdog truck


A bottle of wine

We have been eating lots of these Sweeties, a grapefruit & pomelo cross. They are very sweet and juicy.

Evie made me this coaster for my morning coffee.
We are joining Liz at www.bizzylizzysgoodthings for the IMK link up. If you would like to join post before February 10th, link back to her site and let her know you have posted.

Moldavian Potato Salad

This potato salad was given to me by a friend, it has a lot of flavour with feta, dill and so garlicky.  It is different from other potato salads in that there is no mayo.

6 medium sized red potatoes, boiled in salted water until tender.  Once cooled enough to touch cut into chunks.

Cool to room temperature.

Then add 1 cup of crumbled feta, 3tbsp red wine vinegar and 2 tbsp chopped fresh dill and 1/4 cup chopped green onions.  I didn’t have green onions so I didn’t add those.  Season to taste with salt and pepper. Toss gently to coat.
