Canada's Unofficial Start to Summer

Wednesday, May 16, 2018


Victoria Day weekend,May Two-Four, May Long, and May Long Weekend, however you may say it, it is Canada's kick off to summer!  Is everyone excited to for summer to start? After the April we had I sure am.  Dreams of warm weather, swimming and best of all BBQ's and family gatherings. My family always has a bonfire/hot dog roast, followed by roasted marshmallows of coarse. Everyone brings fireworks to set off and desserts to enjoy. One year it rained and we were under the covered deck watching the Maple Leafs on a small tv(yes, they were still playing), my brother and brother-in-law braved the rain to set the fireworks off. 

This week's special is chicken breasts. I decided to make chicken and vegetable kabobs with a oriental flavour. You can use your favourite marinade recipe or try the one below.  When cooking with high temperatures I like to use use grape seed oil because it has a higher smoking point.  If your too busy to make kabobs you can also pick ready made ones at Country Corner  Markets. 

    1/2 cup grape seed    1/4 cup sesame seed oil    1/4 cup rice vinegar    1/4 cup mushroom soy sauce    1 tsp Thai seasoning    1 medium onion minced     2 cloves garlic minced    Mix together. Cut chicken breasts into chunks and marinate overnight or at least 3 hours.     When assembling I always put the chicken and the vegetables on separate skewers.  You choose your favourite veggies to use. This is a simple to make ahead and can be packed to take with you whenever your headed this weekend.
Keep in mind Country Corner Markets has everything to make your "May 24" weekend fantastic.  Hamburgers(also on special), hot dogs sausage and a selection of salads and cheeses.  Hope everyone will have a a fun and safe long weekend.
Buen Provecho!
