A little peek at the last week:
I told y’all I was going to make this blueberry upside-down cake… and it was incredible.
We are re-doing our backyard… The entire thing has been tilled at this point, but we’re still deciding where to go from there.
Cold press chicory coffee! YES.
Mr. Business in his business under-roos! Bwahaha.
Doctored-up Trader Joe’s frozen pizza for lunch one day…
One of my more brilliant moves this week. I changed our sheets, made up the bed, and 30 minutes later when the iPad started glowing, I realized I’d tucked it right under the fitted bed sheet!
Dinner with the hubby post-workout, and apparently I needed/wanted some protein! Southern fried tofu, roasted taters, greens sautéed with garlic and red vinegar, slow roasted pulled bbq pork and a little chicken wing.
My mom and stepdad sent us an island for our kitchen… When my stepdad asked me on the phone if my husband was “good at reading directions and putting things together?” I said, “Probably, but I’m good at that too!” So… I sat, a-buildin’ some shit for 3 hours.
Ta-da! And I did it all by myself! Haha
“Babe, that looks like the food of the gods.” – My husband, on the topic of homemade hummus.
Which was eaten with homemade falafels, pita bread, tzatziki, romaine lettuce, tomatoes and feta.
This fella officially has his permit! And we have this handy little book that Oregon parents receive when their kids pass the permit knowledge test. Haha.
In honor of National Pie Week, we had a chik’n pot pie (with an ugly crust because I barely made enough dough for this double-crusted pie).
There are wildfires burning north and south of us… the skies are smoky, smoky, smoky.
We sent Vincent off to Alaska to visit his girl for a week! His mom is in Tahoe, so his parakeets that live at her house are also vacationing here at “Crazy Bird Lady Aviary.”
OCD napkin arranging.
We had dinner at the Brickroom here in town last night, where my husband also played music… His dinner, shrimp and grits minus the lardons. There were white prawns, sautéed vegetables in a parmesan cream sauce and polenta.
I got a pulled pork sandwich — slow roasted espresso rubbed pork shoulder, a delicious house-made BBQ sauce, cole slaw and thin, fried onions on a brioche bun. It was tasty!
One of my favorite shots from the night. You can see the rest of my photos here.
My buddy Janet even came to hang out with me at the show.
Dinner tonight with this guy and the hubby!
And that chicken torta was perfect.
Hope you’ve had a lovely week!
