hard to believe that it’s Monday already.
The weekend went by way too quickly!
I was lucky enough to enjoy the beautiful sunny weather, and even spent
a couple hours roasting in the sun sippin’ on some iced coffee. So relaxing!
I really hope we get more days like this soon…1st day of
summer is coming up quickly :D. Summer=BBQ’s, cold drinks, friends, relaxing,
reading, swimming, sun bathing. I can’t
I don’t like to take big risks when it comes to preparing
breakfast…I like to make things I’m comfortable with, and generally something
that doesn’t take too long. It’s
interesting how one bad childhood memory could affect your readiness to try
something when you get older. Take crepes
for example. I could never get them just
right and always managed becoming frustrated and spoiling the whole batch. So I figured, since I’m older, that I have more
patience to try it again. I LOVED how they turned out! Definitely a dessert-type of breakfast and
great for special occasions. They are quite
quick & easy to make, despite their impressive appearance. Give them a try!
month has passed by quickly, but not to my surprise. I’ve been having a hard time fitting
everything in lately-work has been crazy (unfortunately a part of this is my
own fault for agreeing to do so much) and I don’t anticipate it to slow down
until the end of July. We’ve planted our
flower gardens with perennials and our herb garden (I’m so in love with this
already) is finished. I’ve also joined a
softball team so well…you get the idea.
Lately I’ve been feeling inspired to make drinks at home. This one is my first and definitely not my last. I loved how it turned out-Gavin did too! I hate buying herbs in plastic packaging, so I purchased some mint for my herb garden and bought 2 kinds (spearmint & chocolate). Needless to say, I’m pretty pumped. The possibilities are endless. I can’t wait to use them all!
This pizza is incredibly simple-I know. However, sometimes the simplest of things can surprise you the most. When we were in Costa Rica, we ate at this place called Café Viejo. The food & drinks were incredible. They made the best pizza and mojito’s I've ever had! I didn’t think much of this pizza when we first ordered it, but when it arrived-I had a hard time not eating the whole thing.
of my favorite desserts growing up was this one. You can’t go wrong with fresh strawberries,
dream whip & a spongy-type shortcake.
My mom served this dessert quite often, especially around spring &
summertime when there is an abundance of strawberries. We never got sick of it-loved it even more
with each time she made it.
Shrimp Pasta with Oven Dried Tomatoes & Fiddleheads
In a spur of a moment decision, Gavin and I decided to host our first mother’s day luncheon. I think it went pretty well but wish we had a bigger house to entertain people. Oh well. We made do with what we had and had the perfect amount of food leftover!
