Admired the beauty of fallen petals.

Ran 4 miles on Saturday and took my 17th hot yoga class today. I saw a strong woman in the mirror!

Drank a cold Green Monster after my workouts.

Did 4 loads of laundry and cleaned some house.

Went to the mall with Jamie and bought a summer dress from Bebe 50% off.

Used one of the new cookbooks Eric got me for my Birthday- Clean Start and Clean Food by Terry Walters.

Bought some delicious cherries.

It fell apart, but we loved it anyways!

Helped Eric install the deck railing.

Watched him carry wood as I drank a beer. ;)

Went to Costco, bought frozen mangoes, gluten-free & dairy-free crackers, peppercorn, and a mat.

Roasted cauliflower and made Mashed Rosemary Cauliflower. I adapted this recipe.

“took my 17th hot yoga class today. I saw a strong woman in the mirror!”—

YAY FOR YOU!!!!!! I am sooo happy for you, Angela, awesome!

And I am also happy about your 50% off Bebe find, too :)

Love how you said you adapted the mashed cauli recipe but would just rather have mashed potatoes…haha. I am doing a post (prewritten) about “healthifying” dessert recipes and sometimes it’s just better not to. I do enjoyed mashed cauli, but you’re right, not mashed taters.

And I love the pic of those beers. Very cool, artsy. Diggin that shot b/c of the depth of field and I dunno…it’s just a cool shot.

Glad that you have your priorities straight: watch Eric work while you drink beer. Amen :)

Sounds like so much fun, and I love how you’re getting so into hot yoga and gardening.

The garden’s looking great! It’s always fun to compare…but I haven’t sung to my plants yet. They may need it. ;)

I LOVE LOVE LOVE those crackers from Costco…. they are delish and I also bought a lot of Cherries this weekend….. mmm I LOVE them soo much!

Have a good Sunday!

Arent they? I just discovered them…so good! I love the puffed brown rices ones slathered in hummus. I figure I get to use double the amount of hummus right? ;)

Maria May 29, 2011

I agree with the cauliflower mash! I tried making it a few times and it doesn’t hold a lit to real potatoes or even better, sweet potato mash.

Oh and did your weekend include more hours in it than mine did? Or did you not sleep? :)

It looks like you are having a great weekend! I am having a terrible time finding frozen cherries too… apparently there’s a cherry shortage?!

Holly @ Pink Runner May 29, 2011

Cute dress! Cherry tarte looks good, I might have to give it a try!

Charlie May 29, 2011

I love mashed potatoes and when I tried mashed cauliflower I wasn’t impressed either.
That cherry tart looks amazing. Who cares if it falls apart :P.

I’ve been eating those thin cakes from Costco a little too much lately and mashed cauliflower may not be as good as potatoes but if you can’t eat potatoes…they are heavenly.

you two inspire me. We need to learn from your thriftiness and Eric’s handyman techniques. I say write a book! haha.

I’ve never known anyone to grow their own spinach…they look so cute!

It’s a three day weekend for us, for Memorial Day. However, while the weekend is usually filled with BBQs,sunshine and swimming, here in Reno, Nevada– it SNOWED! It didn’t stick, but the high for yesterday was 54 degrees, and it was gloomy and wet and cold. And today, the same thing! Spring has gone missing….
But I secretly love this weather;) So I shouldn’t be complaining!

Angela (Oh She Glows) May 29, 2011

Wow that is crazy stuff! Reminds me of Alberta when it snowed on my sister’s bday on June 6th…

Samantha May 29, 2011

What a fantastic weekend. Though you say they are overrated, that picture really makes me want to try mashed cauliflower. :)

Reply

Angela (Oh She Glows) May 29, 2011

If you are a big cauliflower fan you could like it! We arent big on it to begin with so I think it was a losing battle ;)

Reply

Tessa @ Amazing Asset May 29, 2011

I definitely agree with the Cauliflour mash! While it is tasty, there is nothing quite like buttery, smooth, think mashed potatoes :)
Happy Birthday to your sister and have a lovely rest of the weekend!

allison May 29, 2011

looks like a fun weekend!!! As food bloggers i think we can get overly concerned about food looking pretty and ignoring the amazingly delicious food that falls apart or looks like crap!

Happy birthday to your sis:)

What a fun weekend!! I agree that mashed cauliflower is overrated. I’m all for the starch potatoes…especially sweet potatoes :)

you are the hot yoga woman, angela! way to go.
this weekend i worked, but also went to the new hamburg mcc relief sale preview to drool over handmade quilts, attended a fun and lovely wedding reception and now am off to celebrate my mom’s birthday – so happy birthday to your sister, too!
enjoy the rest of your weekend!

sounds like a lovely weekend! i have the first terry walters book and love it! i make her hummus every week. i love how it never says it’s a vegan cookbook and how it breaks up meals by season and not meal.

I was just telling my mom this weekend — apparently mosquitoes don’t like the smell of vanilla, so some vanilla extract on pulse points will help ward the suckers off! (And keep you smelling lovely :-) )

Gina @ Running to the Kitchen May 29, 2011

I too fought the dandelion battle this weekend. They are taking over!
I also can’t find frozen cherries anywhere after running out and I’m really craving a chocolate cherry bomb smoothie :(
Looks like a great weekend!

Reply

Sara (The Veggie Eco-Life) May 29, 2011

How do you like the cookbooks? They seem interesting! And that pie looks good (even fallen apart)
I’m glad hot yoga is working out so good for you!
It looks like a very nice weekend. Btw, we have the same gardening gloves :D

“Stayed off the computer” = amen.

These past few weeks and the next are going to be stressful. (Have been). I’m just trying to keep my head on somewhere – I want your weekend! ;)

Is Costco worth joining?? Maybe I should consider it…

What do you eat crackers with?

Katherine May 29, 2011

What is the mango thing in the background wit the blender?

Jemma @ Celery and Cupcakes May 29, 2011

It sounds like you had an amazing weekend. I just worked, went for an 8 mile run and relaxed, which is just what I needed.

Meri May 29, 2011

haha- “watched him carry wood as I drank a beer”- sounds about right to me! I love making cauliflower mashes, especially with sweet curry spices. Ever tried that? Deeelish. I have a sweet curry powder that I sometimes combine with cauli and nooch for a mash, its the best.
Cheers!

I am so with you on the mashed cauliflower. Cauliflower is wonderful in its own right, but it’s no mashed taters!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend :)

Your weekend sounds like so much fun thus far. I really love seeing how the deck is coming along and your garden. I love speaking to my plants too. They need to hear our encouraging words to grow just as much as they need water and sunshine. Well, we need water and sunshine too and encouraging words from loved ones always help :)

So far this weekend I celebrated two friends graduations. Wrote 15 and counting pages in my novel, talked to my plants and gave a zucchini plant away to my older sister (hopefully her boyfriend will teach her how NOT to kill it) and walk/ran 3.5 miles in 45 minutes. Tomorrow I hope to get my butt on my road bike and cycle out doors for the first time and pray I can finish my novel before June 1st or I lose a bet and owe a friend a bottle of expensive champagne.

Love that dress- So pretty! I’m way into white dresses this season :)
This weekend I took it easy! I baked bread and cherry muffins, I read the Globe and Mail, I strolled over to the farmers market and I did plenty of gentle hatha yoga. I snuggled with my puppy and chatted with my best friend for hours on her back patio. It was a good weekend :)

Haha I love that you let Eric do all the work while you drank a beer. Atta girl. ;)

Love, love, love this! Healthy lifestyle all the way! The Green Monster is looking good, I have never heard about it before – I have to try it. Oh, and isn’t gardening just the most relaxing activity ever? I always look forward to weekends to spend hours in my garden, really.

Yes it is so relaxing…love it
