a new mailbox for a new home

century-old-homeHi everyone! It’s been two and a half weeks since my last blog post. How are you? I truly do miss you all.

Life has been very hectic here on the prairies. We have since moved into our new home, and I have begun my master’s program. My schooling is pretty intense right now, and I find that I have to turn my phone off during the day just so I don’t have any distractions. It’s the only way that I can get my schoolwork done and take good care of Remy. I’ve certainly been running on fumes over these last few weeks. However, it’s for a good cause, and so I really shouldn’t complain. :-)))

Processed with VSCO with a4 presetWe’ve had our share of ups and downs at our new home. Perhaps I should call it our old home though, given that it’s over one hundred years old. I love its size, its character, the fact that every room needs to be renovated (some of which we’ve already started), the neighbourhood, and so many other features. I mostly love how we can grow into it over the years. Moreover, Remy finally has a bedroom!

Processed with VSCO with se3 preset Processed with VSCO with a4 presetI thought that I would introduce our new home with something so simple like the purchase of a new mailbox. Boring, I know. However, it focuses on the front of the house, which is fitting for an initial post.

See you soon!

leftover turkey sandwich : kinfolk recipe

Kinfolk_Vol14_LunchboxCranberry sauce reimagined into spiced chutney sets this sandwich off with a sweet and savory note while the Brie adds a creamy finish.

The Lunch Box: Leftover Turkey Sandwich With Cranberry Chutney

Ingredients:

(For the spiced cranberry chutney)
2 tablespoons (30 milliliters) extra-virgin olive oil
4 shallots, peeled and diced
1 garlic clove, minced
1 teaspoon fresh ginger, peeled and minced
1⁄4 teaspoon salt
1⁄4 teaspoon dried red pepper flakes
1 cup (240 milliliters) prepared cranberry sauce

(For the sandwich)
Dijon mustard
2 slices sourdough bread
1⁄4 cup (10 grams) lightly packed sliced radicchio
3 ounces (85 grams) sliced roasted turkey

2 ounces (55 grams) sliced Brie 

Method:

For the cranberry chutney: Heat the oil in a medium-size saucepan over medium-low heat. Add the shallots, garlic, ginger, salt and dried red pepper flakes and cook, stirring occasionally, until the shallots soften and become translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in the cranberry sauce and increase the heat to medium-high until simmering. Reduce the heat to low and simmer 2 to 3 minutes to allow the flavors to come together. Let cool, and then taste to adjust the seasoning. The chutney will keep in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.

For the sandwich: Spread a thin layer of mustard on the bottom of a bread slice, followed by the radicchio, turkey and cheese. Spread a thick layer of cranberry chutney on the remaining bread slice and assemble to make a sandwich.

Kinfolk Magazine Turkey SandwichAlthough this recipe was in Volume 14 of The Winter Issue, I find that sandwiches are more of a summer meal than a winter one. I will have to make this for my beloved Geoffrey, as I know that it’ll give him something to look forward to on his lunch break.
