Every time I visit M&M Meat Shops I come home with something new (in addition to my tried and true faves). At the last visit, I was tempted to try the Lemon Pepper Sole, which turned out to be absolutely scrumptious! We paired it with M&M’s Bean & Carrot Medley and (at Ryder’s insistence) Seasoned Potato Wedges. Couldn’t have been easier, and although it was made from frozen, the meal tasted as fresh as if made from scratch.
Now I love to cook, and must admit that I enjoy my time spent in the kitchen engaging in culinary adventures. But the truth is, with 2 little guys competing for my attention and my hubby’s erratic schedule, sometimes life demands a quick and tasty meal. And for that, I’m happy to turn to M&M Meat Shops.
For appetizers, I love serving their Torpedo Shrimp (A crispy delight, these hand-peeled, tail-on shrimp are delicately seasoned and rolled in crispy wrappers that pack a tasty crunch). Paired with a spicy Thai Dipping Sauce, I can never keep up with the demand! There’s usually a fresh batch coming out of the oven just as guests begin to growl for more :) I also give two thumbs up to the Classic French Mini Quiche, Louisiana Style Chicken Wings and Oriental Party Pak.
Now I’m quite certain my butcher does not read my blog, which is a good thing – because he’d come after me with a cleaver if he knew where I purchase my filet mignon. That’s right, Antonio, I buy it from M&M Meat Shops! And it’s freakin’ AWESOME! For just $5 per portion, it always cooks up juicy and flavourful. In the winter, we pan-fry the filets with a truffle oil and balsamic reduction, and in the summer, it’s all about the BBQ. My mouth waters just thinking about it.
For dessert, life is too short to not indulge in their TOO TALL Coffee Double Cream Cake (An outrageously delicious tiramisu-inspired dessert created with shortcake, mascarpone mousse, whipped cream and dark chocolate). I like it for dessert paired with a steaming mug of coffee… but I like it even more at 11:00pm when the kids are in bed, the dishes are done, and Jersey Shore is queued up on the PVR! That’s two guilty pleasures, ha ha!
M&M Meat Shops also supports the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of Canada (CCFC). In 1989, M&M Founder Mac Voisin started the first chain-wide Charity BBQ Day to raise funds for CCFC. Since its inception, Charity BBQ Day has helped to raise more than $16 million for research into Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. (This charity is near and dear to my heart, as my father suffers from ulcerative colitis. Crossing my fingers that we’ll see a cure in his lifetime.)
