Grilled veggies, Israeli couscous, goat cheese and fiddlehead ferns. I shamefully told the kids the fiddleheads were forest worms just to gross them out so I wouldn't have to share :o
A big bonus to eating salad is that you can't just scarf it down. You have to eat it slowly, thereby enjoying it and giving your body a chance to realize it's full before it's over full.
Now to totally negate any benefits of salad, I have been baking. Actually it's for the school bake sale, so we're OK! I made vanilla cupcakes with buttercream frosting and lemon bars.
I have been thrifting a little lately, and found a small bag of silk thread on wooden spools.
The colors are very pretty, and combined with a few other wooden spools I have make a neat decoration displayed in one of my vintage canning jars:
And lastly I did a bit of card making last night. I love how this one turned out:
It's actually more green than the grey that you see here. Although, grey would have been nice....
I love making cards but it usually takes an hour per card, just because I have to go through every possible combination of paper/stickers/embellishments. By the end of it I'm out of creative ideas for the verse, so it's usually just "To... From Me" Hardly inspired! So if you get a card from me, just know all the love is in the outside!
