This Past Weekend

Looks like someone went a little AWOL this weekend. What can I say – it’s summer, fun was being had, and my motivation to write was nil. But of course, my trusty camera was at my side to document the highlights.

This Past Weekend…

…I consumed alot of berries…

…sometimes in smoothies.

…I went downtown for dinner with friends from Victoria…

…and had old family friends over for dinner.

…I packed snacks to take to work…

…including tofudding, topped with granola and more berries.

…I resisted the urge to purchase a new cookbook…

…only to be gifted an antique one.

(don’t worry, I’ll have a whole post on this one later – it’s a gem!)

…I tried some new products…

…and created my new signature summer drink.

(glass filled with ice + lime wedge + club soda + splash of mango rum)

…I balanced healthy eats…

How was your weekend? Hopefully you got out there and enjoyed all that summer has to offer. And on that note – I give you the Music Monday tune:

Gob – Soda

Some of my favourite Vancouver punk guys. This song is always on my summer playlists. Now I need to go find me a lake to jump in!

    Love your summer drink – it looks so refreshing!

    OMG, I LOVE old cookbooks. My favorite was one from an estate sale – the grandma had died, She had hand written notes all over an old Betty Crocker cookbook. I thought maybe they didn’t realize it was on the for sale table, and when I showed it to the grandchildren, no one wanted it! So sad but I have it now! 😀

    I love Gob – it may be hard to believe but I used to be so into skateboarding, punk, ska music, etc. Brings back teenage memories though. Looks like you had a great weekend with lots of good summer eats!

    How’d you like that Morning Crisp cereal? I’ve been wondering if it’s worth the dinero…

    Sounds like a fun weekend. I haven’t been too attached to the computer either! 😉
