We got to spend a night at a cottage in Victoria Harbour last week, as the newlyweds went back to Vancouver a few days before their two week rental was up. It was a total win for us and super relaxing.

The cottage had a full kitchen (and a mostly full fridge) so John pan fried some pork buttons with some spices and sauteed fresh mushrooms. The mushrooms were packed with flavour - I think I could have eaten a whole pan of just them. On the side we had some steamed carrots and broccoli and a big scoop of leftover wedding potato salad (which still tasted amazing, as this was before I ate waaaayyyy too much of it).

  1. I love mushrooms. And carrots. What are pork buttons?

    I am starting my day late today and drinking a lime, apple, water, honey, ginger wake up drink. Holy cow, it's good.

    1. Pork buttons are like ribs but aren't actually from the rib part. Maybe they are like rib ends? They come in about 6 inch strips and you have to eat around button-shaped bones. We love them because you can get a bag of them for $5 and they combine the awesome flavour of a pork chop with the fun of a chicken wing.

      Your morning drink sounds energizing. I am drinking some lime squeezed into water - so good too! :)

    2. Ohh, that does sound good. I've been buying pork butt lately and really enjoy it. It's cheaper at the market but with a little work, it's rather tasty.

      I know, eh? Why are lime so good? I dunno. But they are.

    3. Limes are great! My dad peels them and eats the sections like an orange. He loves them!

    4. I have never tried that. I will give it a go, because Tim bought me a bunch of them yesterday.

  2. I think in the states (southern anyway), we do call them rib-ends. I've never tried them, but I have a friend who raves about them. and after I read this post yesterday, I keep thinking about that meal as Sunday's dinner. That is total comfort food to me.

    Jen, is Victoria Harbor near/part of Victoria Island?

    1. This meal totally tastes like comfort food for me too.

      Victoria Harbour is actually in Ontario, near the Midland/Penetanguishene area.
