Kicked off what ended up being a challenging week ahead with a little TLC and delicious dinner of Mediterranean-inspired salmon made by The Man.
Shared some thoughts about sharing household responsibilities.
Also previewed my Spicy Thai-Inspired Maple Glazed Salmon from my PWYW Cookblog delectable eclectic.
Enjoyed a Bigass Salad™ - this time, Bun Thit Nuong.
Made some of these wine cork and bamboo skewer plant markers.
Found some early morning cooking energy and whipped up this Fridge Cleanout Bacon Tomato Arugula Pasta for lunch.
It was a White Whine-ish kind of week. :P
Woke up to The Man's gaming system notes to be used in a very serious analytical discussion with StepJoey and fell even more in love, respect and gratitude for him.
Enjoyed the first Hodo Gwaja in years thanks to a generous friend.
Enjoyed a rare and lovely Girls' Day Out at the Día de los Muertos festival at Rancho Guajome Adobe in Vista.
And treated myself to this handmade tagua necklace by a local costume jeweler named Estela who also sells at the Oceanside Sunset Market on Thursday nights (which is awesome because she makes some fabulous chandelier earrings too, and I am all about the danglies).
After which we came home and treated ourselves to some steamed Dungeness crab (bought live at Mission Seafood in Oceanside) and other fixins.
Was inspired by +Jason Tinling to bake up some Pumpkin Carrot Zucchini Muffins using a modified King Arthur Flour recipe.
And was treated to a delicious linner by Joey resulting from his Chopped cooking exploits.
