JUST AN AVERAGE CHILL WEEKEND + A SUPER SIMPLE RECIPE

Do you ever have those weekends that are so filled with activities and you’re like, ‘I need a weekend from my weekend”? Well, that is me almost all the time, also because I do not care much about weekends, I’m more a Monday to Thursday lover, I feel like weekends are so overwhelming with things to do that I forget to relax. This past weekend I decided to do just that. Visit local and quaint cafés, go for walks, hit up happy hours, cook ... to say the least, It was a perfect weekend. I don’t often get to relax and just do nothing, It’s in my personality to always be go-go-go! I eat fast, walk fast, often talk fast, I do most things fast. Pushing myself out of my comfort zone and just chiiiiill was foreign territory.

While making my grocery order with Kiki's I ended up buying so many peaches that I basically made peach errrrrrything! Peach cobbler, roasted peaches, you name it! My favourite recipe I made were these amazing halloumi and peach canapés that we enjoyed ever so much while sippin' and savouring some actual bourbon. This recipe is my simplest to date. All you need is:

1 package halloumi cheese
1 loaf of your favourite ‘fancy’ bread (I used a raisin and walnut from Terra Breads)
1 large peach
3-4 table spoons bourbon (red wine would do, too)

All you have to do really, is cut the bread in small triangles, squares or whatever the eff shape you’d like to, toast in the oven (at 375) until light brown, while turning often. Once light brown on both side add pieces of halloumi on it until it is softly melted, softly being the key word. While all this is happening you gotta have your peaches in a pan with about a table spoon water, on medium heat. As the water evaporates add a bit more until the peaches are about medium soft (so not too wrinkly/caramelized looking). Once medium soft add the bourbon and let it caramelize until there is barely any liquid left. Place the peach slices on each piece of bread topped with halloumi and put back in the oven until the bread is medium brown. Really, I ain't gotta show you 'beginning to end' type photos because the recipe is SO simple and easy, there ins't much to it but amazing flavour!

Now, if I had some basil I’d definitely beautifuy this dish by puttin’ that baby on top, it needs some greenery, I made the dish again with basil and it was extra amazing. These little canapés are great for the holiday season approaching us. So easy and only three ingredients (well, 4 if you count the bourbon, but that’s really just a personal preference, caramelizing it in water might be fine for some.

What are some of your favourite ‘chill’ weekend activities?
