A Fun Friday...

The weather here is amazing! Sunny, warm, and of course that makes thoughts of flowers and gardens pop into our heads. Den has plans to work outside most of the day. Sun is streaming through all of the windows and we actually have windows open. It's lovely. It makes me think of fresh starts, renewals and an actual end to chemo gets closer and closer...hopefully.

My plans today...

I want to make soup out of the leftover turkey breast...we always get them from Trader Joe's...and they are always yummy. Dinner tonight is halibut...wild from Weggieman's and butternut squash veggie noodles...also Weggieman's...I have a spiralizer but it's so much easier to buy them! Prespiralized? Spiralized elsewhere? Less mess?

Butternut Squash!
Sweet potatoes!
Cauliflower Rice! Also fresh from Weggieman's.
I am using this to make Cauliflower Rice Burrito Bowls!
 
From What's Gaby Cooking!
And after being so virtuous with all these veggies...there is carrot cake for dessert! Weggieman's, of course!

I seriously don't think I could live anywhere where there was not a Weggieman's. I can't wait to actually go inside of one again. Den went shopping yesterday and I went, too, but virtually. He calls...thank God for big iPhones...and we wander each department. Here in PA Weggieman's is running veggie noodle commercials so that department was packed. I wanted zucchini noodles but they were all shopped out! Who knew?

Books!

Reading this...

And this...

And this...

I always said I would never read more than one book at a time and now I am really reading three at a time...yikes!

So...

See you on Monday! I love 5 day blogging!

Hugs,

Patty

  1. The only bad thing about being in FL for the winter? NO Wegmans... I miss them SO much! I was buying a ton of spiralized veggies, then finally decided to do my own. It's not nearly as messy as I'd feared and even kind of fun. The cauliflower rice is good, too, but I need to find more ways to use it. My sister came to visit last week and brought me some of their basting oil :)

    1. I know exactly what you mean...once you get used to a Weggieman's...there is no going back to an ordinary store! Not even Whole Foods!

  2. I am so bereft! We have no Wegman's, but it sounds like such an awesome place! Those veggie noodles look so yummy...and so does that carrot cake! I haven't had carrot cake in years.

    The Beach House book looks tempting. Enjoy the sunshine and gardening!

  5. Oh, I'm so jealous; no Wegmans here! Sigh. Those butternut squash noodles looked great!

    Hope you're feeling good....

  6. No Wegmans here and the WF is a bit of a drive. Oh well. Halibut! My favorite fish. My sister lives in Alaska and caught one. She brought some when she visited. So good.
    Have a lovely weekend.

  7. That's great you have a reliable grocery store that has good food to bring home. Soup sounds yuumy; I love the comfort of soup. Husband brought home Panera Bread soup, bread, and cookies for dinner. It was nice to come home to that after a day in Santa Clara.
