I have been so absent from this blog lately. My apologies, life has been smothering me like a well-dressed plate of poutine lately. Yum.
I’m hungry. Haha, when am I ever full?! In case you were wondering the answer to that question, it’s never. I’m always hungry and speaking of, my favourite meal of the year is coming up this weekend. No, it’s not Christmas. It’s not Easter or Thanksgiving either. It’s not even my birthday yet. It’s the 40oz steak night at The Canadian Brewhouse this weekend. Fourth year in attendance and I’ve crushed it all every year. Plus appys and dessert. Screw winning that BBQ, I’ve earned it at this point, The Brewhouse should just give it to me.
So definitely looking forward to that this weekend. Today was a beaut too actually. Sun is shining, weather is sweet. Makes you wanna move your dancing feet. God I love Bob Marley. What a cool cat he was! Song came on the radio today when I was out playing in the new tractor.
The Farmer went discing so I decided to try out the new ride, there’s a sunroof all up in there, who wouldn’t smile about that?! I sure did.
I was in such a great mood today that I decided I would brighten the Farmer’s day too. He said the other day that he really wanted 1000 island dressing for a salad he made himself but couldn’t find any so this rockstar of a wife made him some from scratch this afternoon. Review just came in too, was as good as store-bought. #boom #idontsweatisparkle
Big Mac Sauce aka 1000 Island Dressing (this is a ridiculous name, where the hell would it have come from?!)
Makes approx 1 cup
1/2 cup Miracle Whip
1/4 cup Ketchup
3 Tbsp chopped sweet pickles (or sweet relish if you don’t have the pickles)
1/4 cup sweet pickle brine (you can sub this with 1 tsp sugar and some water)
1 green onion, chopped
1 tsp worcestershire sauce
1 tsp balsamic vinegar
milk (for consistency)
Mix everything together in a jar and store in the fridge, it’ll last about a week. Think about how amazing this will be on a double burger with some lettuce? Mouth watering yet? You’re welcome. Kim.
