Weekend Snapshots

This weekend I…

1. Overdosed on yellow-flesh watermelons and melons from the farmers market. It was my first time trying yellow-flesh watermelons (tastes just like a regular watermelon but more fun to look at!) and have been eating melt in your mouth melons from the market the past couple of weeks. Just can't get enough of these fruits that are currently in season…

2. Went to the Sarah McLachlan concert at Wolf Trap. You're allowed to bring food and drinks (including alcohol--win!) so decided to pack a small bag full of food and snacks to picnic with prior to the concert. Before she performed, I got the chance to meet her which was a treat because she was so down to earth. She is amazing live.

3. Have been thinking about what to do with the latest summer vegetables from the CSA (community supported agriculture). Lately I've been eating a lot of zucchini and summer squash than I probably have consumed in my entire life and have actually been enjoying these in season vegetables. But, my counter has been overflowing with zucchinis and summer squash which has made me really put on my culinary hat on what else to do with these guys. So far I've eaten them raw in a southwestern quinoa dish I recently made and also used a vegetable peeler to turn them into a "pasta" for a separate recipe. Both dishes were really delicious and consumed before I could pictures for the blog--sorry! I'm thinking of making a sautéed zucchini with basil, mint, and walnuts next. If it turns out great, I'll post the recipe soon.

4. Finally winded down the weekend with new food magazines, a fresh coat of new nail polish (OPI's "Pompeii Purple), and my smoothie recipe on Sunday's Buzzfeed (thanks for the feature Buzzfeed!)

How was your weekend?
