BBQ Yes, Hockey Game No

Wow. That was one sad hockey game. The Canucks had better pick it up in the next game, or they will be in serious jeopardy of losing the series. The game started good, but took a severe turn for the worse, and just kept going. Although, I never expected them to sweep Chicago, that’s for sure. Hopefully they can regroup and move on to some more wins!

So other than the horrible hockey game, my evening was quite lovely. I meandered on over to my friend’s place, where we BBQ’d up a little feast. Two of the three items were my creation, although I had no hand in cooking them.

First, I had picked up some sirloin steaks, cubed them, then marinated them in some soy sauce, worcestershire sauce, canola oil, garlic, salt, pepper, and onion powder. We made kabobs, and grilled them up.

I had also cubed up a small butternut squash and an onion, and mixed that with a little canola oil, salt, pepper, and rosemary. We put that into some foil packages and let that roast on the grill. My friend also made up a little caesar salad to round out the meal. He’s been on a real salad kick lately!

It all turned out pretty well, if I do say so myself. The only thing I would have liked was more crispy-ness on the butternut squash. I think it steamed a little too much in the foil packs. But it still tasted great. Plus I have about half of it leftover. I may turn it into a soup or something.

Eventually I made my way home. It was (and still is) super windy out. I wouldn’t be surprised if the power went out tonight. Looks like it had rained a little too. At least it wasn’t raining on my walk home.

For a little something something, I sliced up a gala apple and had it with some peanut butter.

Now I’m not quite sure how I will spend the rest of the evening. It’s a toss up between reading and MarioKart. Or perhaps a combination of both! Only time will tell. Hope you all had a great Saturday night 😀
