What a great weekend so far!
I spent yesterday lounging by the pool with The Man and then shopping for the rest of the afternoon with Fanatic Mom 🙂 Couldn’t have asked for a better day!
Dinner was an experiment with a new farmer’s market find, love it.
MINI BEETS & beet greens!!
The same farmer that got me hooked on kale & bok choy found a winner again. That’s why I love the market, you learn so many new ideas & get to try new foods!
How cute is that, seriously?
To prepare, I washed them thoroughly, sliced off the baby beets & chopped up the greens into large pieces.
A quick saute in EVOO, a touch of S&P, some minced garlic and white balsamic vinegar was all these needed!
Served simply with some pre-made vegetarian baked beans and a simple tomato/basil salad.
Loved the beet greens! They were sweetened up by the mini beets & just tasted great (despite their lackluster appearance 😉 )
Is anyone else as excited about peak tomato season as I am?!?! Gahhh I live to those months!!! Nothing better than a perfect tomato topped w/ salt & pepper if you ask me 🙂
Of course, a coconut cake pop found it’s way into my belly as well!
The Man and I enjoyed some cocktails, watched some tv and called it a lazy night… twas glorious!
This morning I woke up craving a non-oatmeal breakfast *gasp* haha.
Blueberry pancakes topped with cream cheese & maple syrup you say? Scrambled eggs w/ jarlsberg cheese & hot sauce too? Ahhh twist my arm 😉
I should just commit myself to “cream cheese addicts anonymous” at this point… seriously.
I spent an early morning at the pool, starting with a 750M swim followed by some serious lounge time 😀
I haven’t swam in ohhhh about 2 years so I was pretty excited about the distance covered during that straight swim!
My kinda morning….
Dinner tonight is a continuation of new farmer’s market finds, but of course I’m throwing in a Mexican theme on it 😉
See ya back for more!
