Welcome to the What’s for Supper blog! I’m Debra, and most of my time is spent running my Contextures website (Excel tutorials and videos). These days, most of the cooking is done by my husband, Keith, who is semi-retired. Before retiring, he made a few of his favourite dishes — spaghetti, hamburgers, Christmas turkey — but didn’t cook much else.
These days, Keith is willing to try almost any recipe, and creates fabulous meals for us. He prefers recipes that are quick and easy, with tasty results, but occasionally tackles recipes with a long list of ingredients and complicated instructions.
In case you’re wondering which recipes are shown in the header photo, here’s the list, from left to right:
- Steak Squash Salad
- Upside Down Shepherd’s Pie
- Sweet Potato Pear Soup
- Lemon Shrimp Prosciutto Pasta
- Loaded Potato Soup
Here on our What’s For Supper blog, I post a weekly menu each Saturday, and go back at the end of the week, to report on how the menu went. I also post recipes for some of the meals we’ve enjoyed, usually with a photo. This gives us a chance to practise our photography skills, and keep a record of the great (and occasionally not-so-great) meals that we’ve eaten.
We grew up in eastern Ontario, Canada, and we both graduated from York University in Toronto. After university, we stayed in Toronto, where jobs were more plentiful. Eventually, we moved to Mississauga (just west of Toronto), and have lived here ever since.
