i was feeling very domestic this weekend. there is something i love about making and building – and just doing – things. i guess it stems from staring at a computer screen all week. i was very pleased with myself this past weekend with everything i got done.
first I bought and planted this lilac bush by the pool. i love it. i hope it doesn’t die.
then i made the pioneer woman’s black bean recipe. just a sidenote on that… probably didn’t need to make the whole recipe. she cooks for a family of 6 and i cook for 2. these took 2.5 hours to make and I have, like MILLIONS, of beans. if you’re reading this and live in dallas and want some good beans, call me.
for dinner, Sunday night, we had grilled shrimp scampi, a bobby flay recipe.
lastly, i made one of my favorite blogger’s recipes for blueberry popsicles. they were SO GOOD. Blueberries, milk, basil, honey – YUM.
i hate to say that i remembered to take a picture of mine too late – already ate half of it so check out her blog. i guess i have some work to do before i’m a professional blogger!
