Friday Favourites

Happy Friday! The week after March Break is always a bit of a mess as you're trying to catch up on the work missed during holiday, and trying to get back into a healthy routine.  Needless to say I'm glad it's Friday!

We celebrated Dave's Birthday with a nice meal of short ribs, some gifts, and an ice cream cake.

I made a hearty meal on Thursday - beef stew.  This is my mom's recipe, it's very simple and it smelled so good while it was bubbling away.

For the longest time we have had too many mugs for our cupboard meaning we need to stack two on top of each other.  Finally Dave added another shelf and it's been great! I like that I'm not constantly afraid the stacks will topple over.  (The top shelf is Christmas mugs and they are stacked for now, but they are safe there until we need them next November).

The kids had the dentist and I said I would buy them a treat if they didn't have any cavities (I realize that doesn't really make sense).  Q picked out these micro Mini Eggs.  I love Mini Eggs and this size of them just make it all the more easy to gobble them down, you've been warned!

My midday snack at work this week.  I don't always usually buy water (tap water for the win!) but I do like the occasional flavoured water treat.

Earlier this week I posted about our trip to Quebec, you can read them here Part 1 and Part 2

Linking up with Andrea and Erika.


  1. I love beef stew, even if I do make it with "vegetarian beef tips." It's one of my favourite meals. And we never have enough room for mugs around here.

  2. Oh I do love those mini eggs but haven't seen the micro size yet-- I did notice they have more varieties of flavor this year though. Looks like Dave had a great birthday.

  3. Looks like you guys had a great time celebrating Dave. Oh yum the stew looks so good. The only thing that I am looking forward to now that we will be getting cooler weather is all the delicious hearty food! I had to LOL at the treats after the dentist. They make total sense 😂. Trips to the dentist are no fun and that's why I keep putting mine off.

  4. Happy birthday to Dave! I love the chocolate eggs. I always buy a couple of the mini bags this time of the year as a treat for...myself! haha You've inspired me to get my coffee mugs under control haha. I hope you've had a great weekend.
