weekend


This weekend we were out at my parents for father's day. My brother was on the grill and I had spent all day in the kitchen at my place, preparing food. I made Jamie Oliver style Greek salad (with avocado), Potato salad with horseradish and prosciutto (I think I added too much horseradish though!), sausage-stuffed mushrooms and rustic rhubarb tarts. My brother was in Ecuador for a month shadowing doctors and building houses, and he brought me back this awesome striped Alpaca blanket! I guess he knows me better than I thought! I love it. It's thin but so cozy.

Also I forgot to share the only thing I bought while I was in Montréal! Tiny wooden scoops. I found them in a random kitchen store at the market. I'm going to use them for my various flours. My baking shelf is a complete mess, so next time we find ourselves at Ikea I want to get some glass jars and start to organize all my gluten-free flours. Exciting stuff, I know.

You make everything look so chic. I like that little wooden apple container thing too. Good call for your brother on the blankets.

I agree w/ Pret, too!
That blanket looks warm and soft, and works well w/ the other bedding.

Really love the way the blanket looks with the pillow.
