Enhanced Burger

Lunch is a meal that is just as important as breakfast to me! I have to have something that will fuel me through the afternoon into the early evening just before I start prepping for dinner! Breaks are a luxury at work so I need something substantial. Today was one of those days when we had no time to prepare something for lunch and we ended up buying plain cheeseburgers! Blah!

Enter the avocado! I mashed half of it and spread it over the cheeseburger! Voilà! Bon appetit! 😃


Chickmuzucch a la Romesco Pizza

I have been gone for a while…busy with the letterpress print shop, preparing for upcoming Farmers’ Markets and so on.  But we have a guest (maybe guests) visiting tomorrow.  He will be talking to hubby about the possibility for us to design AND print his business cards. Together with his wife, they founded Half-Baked Cookie Company and sold great tasting shortbread cookies! They sort of inspired us to go ahead with our letterpress print shop!

Anyway, our own (you can guess by the weird name) recipe below is what we will be serving him/them (not sure if wifey will show up) while we discuss future plans…

Ingredients for two medium-sized pizzas:

  • 2 pizza doughs (bought frozen at WholeFoods)
  • 1 generous cup of Romesco Sauce (prepared ahead)
  • 1 1/2 cup of shredded Mozzarella cheese
  • 1 1/2 cup of shredded Smoked Gouda
  • 4 large Portobello mushrooms, grilled and sliced
  • 1 very large Zucchini, grilled and sliced
  • 1 1/2 lbs of cooked chicken breast (though I prefer boneless chicken thighs), seasoned, grilled and sliced into bite sized pieces)
  • 2 handfuls of thinly sliced Basil (optional)

Preheat (the pizza stones-if you have them) the oven to 375 degrees Farenheit.  Roll the pizza doughs out thinly on a large, floured surface.  Spread the Romesco Sauce evenly between both dough disks with the back of a spoon.  Sprinkle with Mozzarella cheese. Next, evenly distribute the chicken, mushroom and zucchini over the pizzas. Bury the ingredients under shredded Smoked Gouda cheese.  You may top the pizzas with thinly sliced Basil. Add salt and pepper to taste. (Slide the pizzas onto the pre-heated pizza stones-if you have them and) Bake in the oven until all the cheese has melted.

The dish is best enjoyed with a bottle of red wine or Beer – my personal preference would be a Pinot Noir or Pyramid Apricot Beer.  We hope our guest(s) will enjoy it and same for you!

Bon Apetit!

Our friends, Roger and Cheryl picked up some Christmas Cards from us yesterday.  They have agreed to do a promotional favour for us and are bringing the cards with them to the Baker’s  Market in Vancouver this Saturday, Nov. 26th.

We are absolutely giddy they are doing this for us! Since Christmas is only a month away, we encourage you to drop by the Baker’s Market and check out their delicious shortbread cookies!  We can’t wait to get our hands on some again!  They’ve come up with a new flavor: Jasmine Tea.  One of our favourites is Rosemary Brown Sugar, which pairs well with a sharp cheese and robust red wine! Yummy!

Our friends will also grace the Squamish and Ladner Christmas Markets in December.  For more details on dates, please, visit their web site www.halfbakedcookiecompany.com.
