We're back in Halifax for the next part of our vacation....toodling about Nova Scotia, spending time at Camp Kadimah visiting kids and grand kids. After all that gorging in Montreal and Toronto, we're also back on The South Beach Diet Supercharged. The trip definitely sent us over the tipping point, so stay tuned for lots of great SBD friendly recipes.
That said, I thought I'd share an amazing dinner at my Cousin Arlene's. A trip to Toronto would not be complete without one of her awesome dinners. This time around, most of the meal was actually very South Beach friendly....
Pork & Chicken & Chorizo Skewers on the BBQ from Martha Stewart's Everyday Food. I'd have to forgo the chorizo until SBD Phase Two
Grilled Green Beans with Lemon, from Weber's Way to Grill (I couldn't actually find the recipe, but the grilled asparagus, seems similar. I know she added quartered lemons to the grill....delicious and definitely SBD friendly.Baby Bok Choy & Cashew Salad from this month's Martha Stewart Living - superb! and SBD worthy, so I'll be making lots this summer...once I find the baby bok choy, that is.
Okay, not quite so SBD friendly...but lovely once in a while when we hit Phase Two...Lemony Orzo also from Martha Stewart's Everyday Food.
Angelfood Cake with Strawberries & Lemon Cream from Canadian Living Magazine. Arlene substituted Lemoncello for the sherry...a perfect choice for over-the-top ending to a very filling trip! So thanks, Ar...for all of it.
And for the next while, stay tuned for some very tasty South Beach dishes.
