Dan and I went to a wedding reception on a boat,
I made Tofu Mom's Middle Eastern Rice Pilaf for dinner one night, which was rich and satisfying,
Dan and I went strawberry-picking,
We picked roughly ten pounds of berries, and paid about two bucks a pound! Sweet, drippy-juicy, and pesticide-free! Woo!
I made about 4 cups of jam, (some of which I used in my Daring Baker's challenge for this month -- more about that in a bit,) froze about a gallon of whole berries for smoothies and future use, made Lavender Strawberry Lemonade, courtesy of Cafe Cyan, (which is frickin' amazing, by the way,) and of course . . .
(We still have plenty of fresh berries in the fridge; I see another strawberry-rhubarb pie in our future soon.)
Courtney and I went to the Farmer's Market,
Clockwise from bottom-left: the most gorgeous mini-heirloom tomatoes known to man, kale, salsa, beets w/their greens, lettuce, red potatoes, and rhubarb!
And, we went to the opening weekend festivities at the brand-new and largest Hindu temple in Minnesota,
(I would have taken more pictures, but was not allowed to do so inside the temple.) We learned a lot about hinduism and ate amazing vegetarian Indian food!
This may go without saying, but it's been a busy week. What have you been up to?
