flashback: weekend!

It’s Tuesday…and all I can think of is the past weekend and the weekend coming up. We live for weekends don’t we? Weekends seem like the only time I am able to play in the kitchen and take photos at my own pace…and this weekend I did just that.

Started off with breakfast outside on the patio….

Here I am busy working in the kitchen while Casey snoozed:

the makings of breakfast

End result = eggs with chives & cheddar, toast with strawberry puree and coffee!

eggs, toast & coffee

Our plates were licked clean…


I did some gardening…

new planties

I bought a new doormat for the patio…

A new fern for each bathroom (i love them!)

We fixed up our other deck and ate the Orange Strawberry popsicles I made on Friday to celebrate!

made our deck look nice

I stuck three cucumbers in the juicer and out came this lovely shade of green…

cucumber juice!

The cucumber pulp inspired me to make tzatziki…and then I ended up with this:

sunday's dinner

I made turkey meatballs without following a recipe…

turkey meatballs, greek salad etc.

And of course I had to use that cucumber juice so I made a delightful ginger-ale/cucumber/mint/lemon concoction…

-watched a few movies (La Vie En Rose, Into the Wild & Alpha Dog)

-Casey continued to work on painting our kitchen cabinets

-I started a sewing project that ended terribly 🙁

-Took a trip to Home Depot

-Daydreamed about my perfect kitchen…..

What are you doing this weekend?

    p.s. this weekend the only thing on my calendar is to watch “I KNOW MY KID’S A STAR” (i’ve saved them on the DVR) while drinking wine with lauren…

  • Dominique

    Had a grrreat week-end: finished sewing 5 tote bags, planted a few things, wrote an email to a dear friend, read a little, cleaned the house, got my bike back from the nice man who fixed it, bought a new scanner (still in the box though) and barbecue (already used it) and vacuumed the car’s trunk to get rid of our Xmas tree remnants!

    do tell where that cutie elephant doormat came from. did you love into the wild? we did for sure. la vie en rose is on my list also…always, your food looks amazing 🙂

  • Jessica

    Everything looks fabulous, especially that bread and the elephant rug.

    This weekend my only hopes are to not eat out, maybe make it to the library, and get some cleaning done with what time I have left after my husband’s shows Friday and Saturday night. Oh and grocery shopping. 🙂

  • Melisser

    Mmm, Acme bread. Cute doormat!
    I’m headed up to Farm Sanctuary for a Hoe Down this weekend!
